Meet our Private Yoga Instructors
Sarada Erickson, MS, EYRT-500, RPYT, C-IAYT
Registered Dietitian, Director of Teacher Trainings, Acharya, founder Om Ananda Yoga
In 1997 Sarada found yoga for the first time, yet it somehow felt familiar to her. She had been roaming about restlessly and often rebelliously for some years. Yoga provided a glimpse into inner peace. She completed her 200 hour teaching certification in 2001 at ShambhavAnanda Yoga® Shoshoni. She then studied, taught, and grew in the beautiful and supportive ashram environment. In 2004, she moved to Fort Collins to complete her Master’s Degree in Nutrition at CSU. In 2007, the opportunity to lead the first yoga certification in Ft Collins arose. Sarada deeply loved this experience, grew a tremendous amount, and saw the transformative impact it had on participants. She realized this is part of her path, and has brought this love to the community ever since. Om Ananda Yoga in its current form was birthed with husband Shivaji in 2011, followed by the birth of their daughter in 2012. Love, patience, compassion and gratitude have taken on richer forms as Sarada continually learns from her life. In 2017, she grandfathered in as a Certified Yoga Therapist which she will grow and expand more into over the years. Sarada reaffirms her yogic path each day in simple ways through seva (selfless service), ritual, chanting, meditation, and asana. She continually depends on her practice to nourish and balance her body, mind, and spirit.
Shivaji Jason Erickson
MS Biology, RYT-500, Acharya, Founder of Om Ananada
Jason (Shivaji) started his journey into yoga in 2000 when he moved into the beautiful ashram, Shoshoni. He had been looking for answers and a spiritual path for many years. In the ashram he found the answers he was seeking and much more as he learned to truly live like a yogi—each morning and evening chanting mantra and meditating, performing seva, and learning how to incorporate a spiritual practice throughout the day. He holds a Masters of Science degree in Biological Science where his research and training emphasize anatomy, physiology, and neurobiology. In the yoga teacher trainings, where he teaches the anatomy, philosophy, and meditation components, he fuses together both an academic and experiential understanding of the mind and body. Shivaji specializes in the Yoga Movement Screen, and meditation.
Corrina Caldwell, CYT 500, Assistant Manager at Om
Corrina came to Fort Collins from Santa Fe, NM in 1998. After receiving her degree in Human Development and Family Studies from CSU she found a true sense of community in Fort Collins and decided to make it home. A strong desire to travel led her to a farm in Costa Rica where she fell in love with yoga, cultivated medicinal plants and enriched her desire for both grounding and adventure. This new path drew her to India to pursue her 200hr yoga teacher certification through Yoga Vidya Gurukul at the YogaPoint ashram. After two years teaching, she took time off to strengthen her own practice and care for her two young daughters. In 2017 she completed her 500hr certification with ShambhavAnanda Yoga. In 2019 Corrina completed her Meditation Teacher certification and then went on to receive a second 200 hr certification with Shambhavananda Yoga in 2021. Corrina has seen and experienced the transformational power of yoga and hopes to help others find that in their own practice. She believes that yoga is not a one size fits all experience and is passionate about helping people develop a practice that suits their individual needs. Her teaching method is both challenging and gentle, encouraging her students to strengthen their minds, bodies and spirits while seeking balance and grace.
