This class is taught by:

Erika Anderson

Erika is the Studio Director at release, as well as a RYT 200. She has been practicing yoga for a little over 7 years. She has fallen in love with not only the physical changes that yoga has made in her life, but also the release from stress yoga brings her. Her passion is teaching and taking high intensity Hot Power classes! 

  • My favorite yoga pose is: Half Pigeon. Its such a great emotion release pose.
  • Yoga has helped me overcome: Stress. I hold on to a ton of things that I shouldn't, and yoga has given me a sense of peace in my life.
  • I love my shoulders because: They are small and feminine, yet they are such a source of strength.
  • You must try this healthy snack: Honey Crisp apples with whipped peanut butter. 
  • My advice for beginning yogis is: To just give it a try. It was so life changing for me, I truly believe everyone should give it a shot at least once.
  • I am most greatful for: My mom, she is such a strong independent person, and I wouldn't be who I am today without her.
  • The most exotic place I've practiced yoga is: My favorite city in the world, NYC!
  • If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be my boyfriend Joe Bailey because: I am DETERMINED to get him on a mat!
  • My hero is: Beyonce. She is a powerful, intelligent woman who has built quite an empire for herself. 
  • My once wish for the world: Is for everyone to slow down. So much of our lives pass us by, and we don't soak it in.

Sydney Corbin

Sydney came to her mat at Release a year ago. Her journey to crafting this life has been a colorful one. As a disciple of Christ, she has found that yoga can be one of many ways she connects with God. You can count on a fiery flow in her classes with a heavy emphasis on the use of breath as a tool to cleanse the mind and body. Sydney has a burning desire to lead her students on a path of falling in love with yoga and growing towards the knowledge of their true self.


My teaching style is: Challenging, authentic, and explorative. I love pushing my practice to the edge and playing with new movements.   I love my core because: It's strong and powerful. It holds the fire to my practice. You must try this healthy snack: Avocado and tomato on whole grain seed toast.

My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is ... because: Ahimsa: Nonharmning.“Ahimsa” is as the absence of violence but also conscious consideration and love for one’s self and others.

My advice for beginning yogis is: Remember that your practice is an individual process. No one else is inside your body, Listen to it and respect what it tells you. 

I’m most grateful for:Every twist and turn in the road that lead me to where I am today. Because it led me to exactly where I'm meant to be - RIGHT HERE! The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: Off the grid in the mountains of Oahu, Hawaii!
A strong core can alleviate back pain, improve balance & posture, and is essential for expanding your yoga practice. This class is designed to bring awareness to and strengthen the core muscles, flowing through a sweat-inducing series of poses to activate the abs. You'll be coming back to your mat stronger than before!
