Erin is currently living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. She is also still teaching yoga on a regular basis. Can you say “BadAss”? This lady is amazing. 75% of the evenings funds will be donated to Erin and her family, 25% will go towards adjunctive cancer services at the Newport Healing Co-Op.
