In what areas of your life are you comfortable? Comfortable with conversations? Comfortable with the way things are? How can you compassionately disrupt old patterns, habits and, in current times, systemic injustice?
During this session, Ericka led us through an open dialogue about signals in our body that tell us it’s time to compassionately disrupt our comfort zone and step into our higher self — where the magic happens.
NOTE: This session was pre-recorded and is not a live event.

Ericka teaches yoga part-time and is a lululemon ambassador at the North Loop location. Bringing mindfulness and inclusion into spaces is her purpose and passion. It requires a looking at one's "self" in order to lead with inclusive behaviors that impact the whole.
Ericka's journey of bravery began the moment she experienced fear. Fear of being labeled, stereotyped, excelling and failing. Through personal development and yoga, she began walking the road of courage to cultivate bravery.
“Bravery is not the absence of fear. Bravery is feeling the fear, the doubt, the insecurity, and deciding that something else is more important.” – Marl Mausou
