This week, we’re talking to Erica Rodefer Winters, a yoga teacher in Charleston, SC who specializes in teaching prenatal yoga and postnatal yoga. Erica’s take on using yoga, breathing, and mindfulness to tap into the body’s intuition is something that helps her students through the toughest parts of pregnancy and ultimately their births. But it’s a great reminder for us at all phases of life to trust our guts when we’re not sure on the next course of action.
We talk about:
- Her yoga origin story and how her first teacher inspired her
- What appeals to her about teaching prenatal yoga (even though she didn’t love prenatal yoga classes during her first pregnancy)
- How she uses yoga asana, breathing, and mindfulness practices to tap into her intuition — a practice that helped her during the birth of her two daughters. Ways that she helps her students to learn to listen to their intuition and trust their bodies, too.
- Plus, how she leans on that inner wisdom for all the tough decisions that come up for her now in parenting and other aspects of life.
