Thank you to the Erie Reader for their “Erie Faces Erie” spotlight in January! Read the full feature HERE!

I am first and foremost a Yoga, Ayurvedic and Meditation Educator; and an Addiction, Trauma and Chronic Disease Specialist. 

We honor traditional Yoga with the most respected level of training and the most experience available locally. January 1, 2017, marks the 19th anniversary of directing a Yoga studio in Erie! It all started with free classes I began offering in my living room in 1982. We continue to integrate classical principles with current scientific research to provide an effective and sustainable mind, body and spirit practice for all phases of life.

I am also a Mindfulness and Stress Management Consultant and my clients include Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, and school districts. Contact me at 814-864-1114 or rhadeya@plashayoga.com for an individual assessment of your organizations’ needs.
