Sarada Erickson, MS, EYRT-500, RPYT, C-IAYT 

Registered Dietitian, Director of Teacher Trainings, Acharya, founder Om Ananda Yoga

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 earned 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 undergrad and then 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 part of her path was to lead trainings, 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.
