Erin Sampson received her 200-hour teaching certification in 2008 in Arvada, Colorado. For the next several years, she taught classes at her neighborhood studio.
In December of 2011, she and her husband moved their family of five to Tamarindo, Costa Rica for six months. They fell in love with Costa Rica and decided to split their time between Colorado and Costa Rica. Upon her first return to Colorado, she opened her own studio, Five Parks Yoga, which allowed her to teach in both Colorado and Costa Rica.
In an effort to bridge the gap between Colorado and Costa Rica, in February of 2015, Erin and her husband Matt started filming her yoga classes and posting them on YouTube, so that her students could practice with her when she wasn’t in town, (either town!). Since that time, she has posted over 250+ classes and now has 90,000 subscribers and students from over 200 different countries. While her original intention was to simply share her classes with her students at her two homes, the unexpected result of her YouTube channel has given her an opportunity to connect with students from all over the world.
Erin’s other passion project began in 2013 when she and Alyson founded Warrior Girls Yoga – yoga workshops and camps for middle school and high school aged girls. The program has been an amazing part of her passion for sharing yoga in a full hearted and meaningful way. Alyson and Erin have a unique ability to work together to seamlessly integrate the life changing practices of meditation, mindfulness and yoga and have since chosen to work together beyond the Warrior Girls program.
Erin strives to share her love for self-discovery through the practices of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga during this retreat.
