Welcome to Erin Morris to our Red Pearl Family!

erin handstand

Erin attended her first yoga class at 14 and was hooked. The dynamic, flowing, acrobatic nature of yoga
to her as she was a gymnast most of her life.

In her mid-twenties, Erin broke her ankle and her time spent healing was not an easy one. Stuck on the couch,
without a channel for her energy, Erin began to suffer panic attacks.
After her ankle recovered,it was Erin’s husband
who suggested she use yoga as a tool, not for fitness, but to manage her stress and anxiety.

Through yoga Erin re-discovered her breath, joy, control, surrender, spiritual self-awareness,
and powerful healing.As a result, Erin is deeply fascinated with yoga’s effects on mental disorders,
self esteem, stress management, and injury rehabilitation.

With a background in performing arts and dance and with a curiousness for classical yogic texts,
Erin’s teaching style is a unique blend of playfulness, tradition, alignment, and fun.
Erin earned her RYT 200 with a focus in Ashtanga Yoga,studying under Tim Feldmann,Patrick Nolan,
Kino MacGregor and Day Christensen,

Erin continues to practice daily at Miami Life Center.
She is honored by the trust of her students,humbled by the wisdom of her teachers, and so excited to continue to follow and share the ever-unfolding path of yoga

Erin teaches our Sunday morning Mysore Ashtanga class 7:45am.
Open start time. Arrive as late as 8:15 more or less...

How beginners are traditionally taught, Mysore is one of  the best ways to learn about your practice, and yourself. And  Ashtanga-all it takes is committment. We offer Mysore m/w/fr mornings and... soon to come weekday evenings!



We are excited to announce our new Lotus Pad Director Veronique Farnault!

 Veronique adds a special touch and eye for detail in her bodywork, and now she'll be bringing that to Red Pearl and the Lotus Pad. She is a regular student in our classes too, so feel free to say Hi and ask her what massage specials she is offering!

Veronique Farnault, LMT, NP

Veronique has been a licensed massage therapist for over twelve years, blending Shiatsu, Thai
and Bamboo-fusion massage to offer deep therapeutic relaxation.
Other modalities available are Connective Tissue Massage and Reflexology.

When growing up in France, Veronique studied diverse dance styles such as ballet, Afro-Brazilian, jazz, as well as gymnastics. From this training she gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for the human body- the way it moves, how it is held, what are it's possibilites and its limitations.

Her dance experience in France and her discovery of the wisdom of the East through yoga served as a dual foundation upon which the Educating Hands Massage School of Miami exposed her to a wide range of modalities in 2001. This multidimensional training and approach is the source of every stroke received on her table.
