“The Way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”

We are born with an open heart. It’s only after hours listening to the news, days slouching in front of a computer, or one-too-many broken hearts, that we begin to contract in the heart center, dimming our fire and disconnecting from our natural state of Metta, or lovingkindness.

Reconnect with and Expand your Heart Center
with Erika’s Signature blend of
Immersive Aromatherapy & Guided Nidra Meditation

Erika will apply specific essential oils to chakra and meridian points, paired with heart-opening asana to help unlock layers of past experience and release blocked energy. Plus the whole experience is infused with select scents via diffusers to create a multidimensional experience that will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and restored.


• Join us for a delicious mandala of aromatherapy, gentle asana, breathwork & meditation.

• Erika will apply specific essential oils to specific chakra & meridian pointsallowing the wisdom of the plant kingdom to meet the healing wisdom of our own bodies.

• Reconnect with heart center through simple guided Tonglen meditation. 

• Yin and Yoga Therapeutics will help unlock layers of limitation and release blocked energy.

• Sink into stillness with restorative yoga, and experience the deep relaxation and renewal of Yoga Nidra.
