Erin Girzone founded the Good Health is a Habit wellness studio in Waterford, ME. The peaceful town of Waterford is in a beautiful area with hills and lakes and it is in the territory of the Abenaki and Wabanaki. On a daily basis, Erin is honored to operate a business with a mission of helping others improve their quality of life through mindful movement.
At the studio, everyone is seen as a body that is designed to move and a mind that is designed to learn and grow. With Erin’s help, you will break down the box you have stuck yourself in. You will discover you CAN move well and you ARE incredibly strong.
It became clear to Erin early on in her career that good health is a result of the culmination of one’s habits. As John C. Maxwell said, “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
When you work with Erin, her understanding of this becomes quite clear. Changing your life starts with recognizing the daily routine of your mind. As Erin works with you on a physical level she is also supporting a shift in your mindset, a profound step that allows you to change your actions. Erin encourages you to stop judging yourself, to stop worrying about all of the details and to start with something small, a realistic step in the right direction. Erin will tell you it doesn’t matter if you don’t have official yoga pants, or that you have deemed yourself inflexible or that you can’t do a push up yet! The reality is, you are not what you wear, we ALL have physical limitations and you can’t improve how you move or how strong you are if you don’t start somewhere.
Erin understands that we all want the same thing - good health, more happiness and a sense of balance within our daily lives. Erin and her fellow instructors at the studio aim to support your daily routine with services that connect you with your potential. There are a variety of services offered including private functional/somatic movement sessions, group classes in functional fitness, yoga, somatic movement and frequent self-care workshops.

200-hour certified yoga teacher with the Tula Institute of Yoga
Teaching primarily a Vinyasa flow, Jane has found a comfortable and rewarding home teaching a chair yoga practice.
"I am 62 years young, but feel and act much younger! Yoga has definitely helped with that. Chair yoga is such a great place to start understanding yoga and is easy to carry over to a home practice. Moving is the key to aging well with strength and grace.
I have lived in Maine all my life and come from the 7th generation of Denison’s and Whitney’s in Harrison. I have 7 grandchildren aging from 2-18. They all live In New England. My youngest granddaughter lives in West Paris, and has already mastered some yoga poses!
I encourage everyone to try yoga. It is a peaceful way to stretch and strengthen, and every practice feels like coming home." ~ Jane
