Biography

Erica Marcus, MAT, founded Wise Minds. Big Hearts. to bring mindfulness programming to students, families, and schools around New England. This work is the culmination of nearly fifteen years of experience in classroom teaching, wilderness youth therapy, and outdoor education combined with Kripalu Yoga and Mindful Schools certifications. Erica believes that educators benefit immensely from cultivating a mindfulness practice, and those benefits have the power to transform classrooms. She also is committed to addressing issues of excessive screen use, as this directly inhibits our ability to be fully present with ourselves and one another. Finally, she recently wrote a book, Daily Mindful Minis, Tiny Mindfulness Practices for the Fourth Trimester, to support new mothers during their postpartum journey.
