Erin Brown

Erin Brown is an author, international speaker, slam poet, and activist from Lawrence, KS. Her work focuses on women and autonomy. It includes themes of positive body image, eradicating rape culture, honoring the power of our voices, self-care over martyrdom, intersectional thinking and inclusive leadership. Her first book, “As Is” is an exploration of the thinking errors she had to overcome to feel comfortable in her body and find peace in her skin. “Letters to Lola” is a series of essays to her daughter regarding growing up girl, which speaks honestly to abuse and the harmful narratives she hopes her daughter can see clearly rather than attach to herself. And her third piece is both a book and spoken word poem- Sovereign explores the story from abuse and internalized misogyny to fully expressed autonomy and leadership​​​ challenging everything, especially myself.

Mary Claire Sweet

I intend to play! Energetic vibrations of fun run deep in my veins. I own Lotus House of Yoga, vinyasa studios in Nebraska. The classes I lead are fun, challenging and filled with love.

My godfather is ashtanga and my sister is rock and roll. Gracefully tip toe along the fierce edge of your practice, expect sweat, love, and OM. Music is integral to the asana classes I lead. My play-lists are funky and always fresh, incorporating soul, hip hop, folk, and pop.
