Eva has practiced yoga since 2001. She qualified as a childrens’ yoga teacher in 2003 and a full teacher in 2004 after travelling to Kerala, India to gain the Sivananda teacher training certificate. Eva has regularly attended retreats and continued professional development opportunities since then and qualified as an IYENGAR teacher in October 2016.
There was no requirement for Eva to take on the rigorous and costly second qualification other than to obtain the coveted IYENGAR certification. IYENGAR teachers are widely recognised worldwide as being trained in precision alignment and in aiding many significant, yet common, joint and health conditions. IYENGAR instructors are considered elite in their field.
This extensive training guarantees a level of knowledge that equates to comprehensive and inclusive classes as well as the ability to cater to the individual needs of each student. Eva trained as a yoga teacher when her original teacher moved abroad. She recognised the quality of that teaching and failed to find another class locally that met the same standard.
After over a decade of teaching Eva now aims to bring yoga to as many people as possible in and around West Lothian. She has opened the Choose YOU studio to provide an appropriate space for her own classes as well as for other instructors and organisations. The focus for all is greater understanding and empowerment in looking after themselves. Eva’s classes can be booked directly on this site. They are listed as EvaOm classes on the timetable.
