Laura Erhardt Lewis

Licensed Yoga Instructor

In 2019, after many years of self-practice, I decided to follow my own inner prompting to become a yoga instructor. I feel so honored to have been able to learn under the leadership of Katherine Kilpatrick and Anil Sharma at Expressions of Grace Yoga studio in Grand Rapids, Mi.  They have enriched my life in so many ways and inspired me to excellence in the study of yoga and increased my love for it all the more. For that I am most grateful. I have my 200 hour RYT through Yoga Alliance.  It is my desire that I saturate my students with confidence, self love, and well being which they can carry with them on and off the mat. Namaste.

Dianna’s greatest passions include customer service and serving in this position is what she considers one of the most fulfilling jobs she has ever had.
