The evolution of Thrive over the years has led to an inclusive Movement Therapy Centre in the breathtaking rolling hills of Northumberland County. Erin is an enthusiastic and well rounded Yogini who has been studying the human body and how it moves for over 24 years and has developed a style of "movement therapy" based on her experiences and guided by learnings from experts around the globe. She began to practice Yoga in her teens as a way to heal her body from intense training and create balance. Over the years, she’s learned that what yoga really is to her, is a way to cope with the never ending stresses that challenge us in life. At Thrive, you can book a massage or private yoga session in the eco friendly clinic, register for a workshop to kick start a new movement regime, join a group for Shinrinyoku (movement therapy in the forest) or spend an hour or so practicing yoga in the gorgeous outdoor studio.
