Erin Joosse has been a student of yoga since the early 90’s, and has taught yoga and mindfulness for more than two decades. She founded Source Yoga in 2005.
She got her first interest in meditation from her mother Cynthia, who was a joyful, loving, and deeply spiritual woman who explored meditation and other forms of practice for many years. Erin stumbled upon her first yoga class as a college student in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and from that first class, knew she had found her way into a lifelong adventure of inner exploration.
Erin is grateful to be the steward of Source Yoga and to have been journeying with this community for so many years. She feels honored that so many people feel at home in the Source studios, and considers her path of business ownership to be one of the most important, challenging, rewarding, and spiritual experiences of her life.
She is a yoga instructor certified at the 500 Hour Level, and a Certified teacher of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through the University of California at San Diego School of Medicine, Mindfulness Based Professional Training Institute. She has a BA in Dance from the University of New Mexico, with an emphasis in Modern Dance, Choreography, and Flamenco. She has been exploring the joy of movement her whole life.
She is also a wife and a mom, a sister and a daughter, and her family and friends have made the difficulties of this last year+ a little easier every day. She continues to study, train, and practice, and makes time annually for silent meditation retreats. She is also a devoted writer who practices daily.
She teaches yoga, meditation, MBSR, writing as mindful practice, and guides the direction of the Source Yoga studios.
