Erik Marrero - Personal Biography
Yoga found Erik in the Spring of 2007. As a Stage IV cancer patient with severe osteoporosis, he started practicing yoga to deal with the side effects of these conditions and the medications. In early 2009, he graduated from 200-hour Vinyasa teacher training. In the Fall of 2009, Erik began to practice Ashtanga with Zoe Mai. In early 2012, he completed his 300-hour YTT with Zoe and started his apprenticeship with her.
Erik attended his first teacher training workshop with Manju Jois in 2013 and has been attending his workshops (1 to 3 per year) ever since. He can really identify with Manju's therapeutic approach to yoga. Erik has Manju's authorization to teach Ashtanga yoga.
After 10 years of practicing "yoga therapy" daily, Erik's Stage IV cancer was completely gone, and his severe osteoporosis completely reversed. Erik is grateful to have been introduced to this healing practice.
