Erica Garcia is the owner of Nueva Alma Yoga and Wellness and the Founder and Director of Teacher Training of the A.L.M.A Institute in Yonkers, NY. Named by NY Yoga+Life magazine as one of their favored “Inspirational Teachers in NY;” her teaching style was birthed from her unique ability to weave her in depth knowledge of asana, alignment and the yoga sutras with the rawness and reality of dealing with life in the present day. Her students often call her classes “experiences, not sessions”; stating she is in the business of teaching people, not poses; engaging and activating souls, not just the body. Her method of teaching is uniquely innate and intuitive and the students are often quoted as stating “she doesn’t give you the yoga you wanted but found a way to hone in and give you the yoga you didn’t know you needed.” There is a passion in how and when she teaches that is electrifying. Her style of teaching is heavily influenced by Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and various forms of meditation; very “workshop-esque,” as she has mastered the way of teaching that takes the time to intuitively hone in on the subtleties of the mind, body, spirit of each individual in the room. She has a unique ability to create an environment of safety, inclusivity and healing bringing her realness, fun and sarcastic humor demystifying the esoteric allowing the students to learn and accept that they, too, can do this thing called yoga.
This will be Erica’s 4th time presenting at Ahimsa. Erica has been featured featured in Mantra Magazine, NY Yoga+Life Magazine and most recently 2019 Jade Yoga Mats Print Calendar. She is a sought out leader of empowerment and yoga workshops, is a registered Yoga Alliance continuing education facilitator (“YACEP”), holistic health coach, Usui Reiki Level I/II certified and thriving doTERRA Wellness Leader in the NY/NJ tri-state area.
