‘Eve Yoga’. Here’s the professional stuff:
I’ve been teaching for a long time: 36 years. And, practicing yoga since 1971. I started training yoga teachers in the early nineties, first through Sydney Yoga Centre, and then Nature Care College. Somewhere in there I founded and directed two yoga schools. I also have led, and still do, workshops and courses on a variety of yoga subjects.
Simon and Schuster published my book, Teach Yourself Yoga in 1997, and later I wrote an e-book, The Art of Adjustment . I’ve written yoga-related articles for overseas and Australian periodicals, too. More recently, I’ve produced audio and video recordings.
I was a relatively early adopter of blogging–2006. I’ve been at it for ten years, at times almost daily writing for ‘Yoga Suits Her’. My business partner, Gretta, and I created a product called YogaAnywhere practice cards for people who want to do yoga at home.
On a personal level:
In 2009 I moved to Mitchells Island, NSW, where I’m part of a small community with my husband Daniel and four other kindred spirits.You can read all about us in an Amazon book called Shedders. It’s the story of how the six of us have been trailblazing retirees.
Years ago I saw the possibility of living a gentler life, one more in tune with Nature and in synch with how I wanted to teach yoga and practice it. The stunning beauty of my environment, the rich diversity of wildlife and the peace, quiet and fresh air I enjoy are intrinsic to my yoga practice. I managed to create an amazing vision with the help of my friends and am now living it.
Even more personally:
I love walking on the beach at Manning Point or Salt Water Beach at almost any time or in any weather. For fun, I like to arrange evenings where we play games like Pictionary or The Dictionary Game with friends . Good food, great coffee, and a fine glass of wine bring me joy.
I’m an avid reader; this last year I’ve enjoyed The Neapolitan Diaries and Barkskins.
I always try to remember people’s names because I think that doing that is a gift to them. Hopefully, if we haven’t met in person, I’ll get to learn your name one day, and remember it!
Yoga is the longest relationship I’ve had, and, as you can probably guess, I adore it almost as much as I love my husband, Daniel.
