Welcome to Mindful Movement, my name is Erica Viedma and I offer a range of movement classes in Christchurch, New Zealand.
While achieving my Bachelor of Performing Arts majoring in dance at Unitec, I was introduced to a range of somatic modalities including yoga, feldenkrais, and alexander technique. This study created a passion for ongoing learning about anatomy and movement.
I teach from an experience based practice, encouraging students to enhance their body awareness and find time to bring their movement practice into every day life.
I have over 10 years experience as a professional dancer and dance teacher. I began my Iyengar yoga teacher training with Wendy Brown at the Yoga Room in 2012. I teach beginner level Yoga classes under Wendy's watchful eye and tutorage.
"Erica brings such thoughtful, open, curiosity to her classes and encourages equal levels of enquiry and reflection from her students. She challenges me to be rigorous and bold in my practice, whilst also empowering me to listen respectfully to my body. Most of all, I love how playful Erica's classes are. Her warmth, enthusiasm and responsiveness invite her students to bring their whole selves to the practice of yoga."
