At 19, Erika moved to New York City to continue a career in post-modern dance. After suffering a back injury and autoimmune disorder, she began to re-evaluate her relationship with her own wellness. She began exploring alternative types of movement, functional medicine and eastern philosophies and found a wealth of knowledge that provided deep relief. She turned to science-based bodywork like Structural Integration and Zero Balancing. Erika wanted to share the healing she found with others and gained an Advanced Pilates Certification in 2001. She immersed herself even more deeply through her studies in Feldenkrais, Franklin, Bartenieff, Klein, Alexander, therapeutic yoga, neuromuscular repatterning, fascial balancing, healing movement and nutrition. Inspired by the knowledge she cultivated, Erika launched her transformative approach to wellness with the opening of her first studio in 2003.
Erika has helped manage the holistic health of thousands of clients. With a focus on the integrity of education, she opened a certification school in 2010, and created the comprehensive 600+ hour Erika Bloom Method Certification Course. Now, Erika and her instructors have grown this global brand to serve as trusted, supportive health experts through their in-person sessions at Erika Bloom Wellness in New York City, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos as well as through the launching of the Erika Bloom Digital Membership.
