    Quick summary of my skills: Erin

    -Registered Massage Therapist
    -Yoga and Meditation Instructor
    -Experience in farm work

    Please read below if you would like a further explanation of these skills. :)

    I love to be able to share my skills to help others feel better, and inspiring others to take their health into their own hands. When I was 18, I traveled to Salt Spring Island to experience my 200hr yoga teacher training. In the years after that I taught yoga & meditation to numerous classes, including teaching children. I volunteered in a school teaching yoga & meditation to kids age 4 - 13.

    I took a break from teaching yoga to go back to school, and graduated in 2018 from the Canadian college of Massage & Hydrotherapy. I have been working / traveling as a RMT (registered 2200hr Massage Therapist) all over the west coast of Canada for the past 3 years. I learned a lot in school and have learned even more since graduating, & I am happy to continuing learning through the trade of this skill.

    I also have designed and taught a partner massage workshop, where I instruct couples / friends in the basics of how to perform proper massage on one another. It can be taught in pairs or large groups, and is great for increasing intimacy, realization, and helps inspire people to take responsibility of there own health.

    Music is another skill that I would be happy to share. I have been playing guitar & piano from a young age, and am competent in music theory / reading music. I'm always happy to share this skill through teaching, performing or jamming with others.

    I believe I would also be good at farm work as I have 2 seasons experience planting trees in the Canadian North. This was a very physically demanding job & because of this I am prepared for what the work should entail, should I get a position on a farm .

    Finally I also have 2 years experience working as a Barista, so I feel confident around an espresso machine and can make a damn good cup of coffee.

    I love painting, drawing & dancing. I believe the arts are the way to the soul.

    Up here in Canada I have fallen in love with snowboarding, it's probably my favourite thing to do. In the summer time I'm happy to exchange my snowboard for a surf board! Im still learning surfing though so you will catch me on my longboard in the smaller waves for now! Im also a big fan of hiking, especially when the hike is a summit. I absolutely love the mountains.

    Im a bit of a nerd and love to read sci fi fiction, my favourite food would either be sushi or tacos, I drink way too much coffee and tea & I am always happy to spend my money on a new tattoo.
