Yoga Suits Her

I’ve been teaching yoga since 1980.  A lot of my identity is tied up with being a yoga teacher.  What does that mean?  What should that mean? On this site I explore my personal journey and provide commentary on the state of yoga in the twenty-first century. I invite you to have a look and see what may be here for you.

Take Yoga Home: Give Yourself a Gift

Take Yoga Home

Do you think of yoga as something that has to be contained within the four walls of a studio or a hall?

I often remind students in my classes that the poses they do are portable. All you have to do is remember a few––the ones that you find enjoyable––then do them at home.

When you take yoga home and do your own practice, you reap many more of its benefits. 

You could also break out and do yoga whenever and wherever the spirit moves you. For the fun of it.

 A few years ago, I visited ‘Sculptures by the Sea’. The art works there were so inspiring that I tried to replicate some of them.

The photos below show me reversing the old slogan ‘art imitates life’. They offer further proof that yoga can be done anywhere.

A Gift that Keeps on Giving

The holiday gift-giving season is just around the corner and perhaps you’ve been looking for a perfect yoga gift. Perfect because it supports your yoga practice.

Consider purchasing the YogaAnywhere cards which are designed to make yoga practice enjoyable and easy. They let you enjoy yoga in the comfort of your home…or anywhere.

They come as a box of 10 beautifully designed cards. Each one has an introduction, tips on how to get the most out of the program presented, details on the poses, photos and suggested timings.

You have the option of choosing either Yoga Basics, which offers yoga fundamentals in a 10-week beginners program. Or, the Yoga Tool Kit, a collection of therapeutic practices for various modern-day complaints. Cards in the Yoga Tool Kit can be bought separately, as well.

I invite you to do your holiday shopping early and conveniently right here simply by clicking on YogaAnywhere.

If you are on the hunt for a healthy, beautifully crafted gift for friends, family, workmates or yourself,  YogaAnywhere cards might be just the thing. The gift of YogaAnywhere cards shows that you care as you’re giving the gift of yoga.

Take Care: The Ultimate Self-Care Gift is Feeling Ease

Take Care: The Ultimate Self-Care Gift is Feeling Ease

This is the last post of the month where we’ve been exploring the topic of self-care. My intention has been to have us improve our relationship with taking good care of ourselves. This is obviously a continuous learning. But occasionally bringing a sharper focus to it will undoubtedly foster feeling ease in our lives. I believe that improving this sense of ease is as important as building up our muscles, cultivating flexibility or exercising our brains.

Take Care: Daily Self Care in All Sorts of Ways

Nearly a month ago, I committed to posting each day to the theme of Take Care. The idea being that, because of writing about self-care, I would pay more attention to caring for myself.

I’m almost at the end of 30 days of posting. Have I done daily posting? Not exactly.

I’ve been regularly contributing to this blog since 2009.  There are now over 1250 posts about a very wide range of topics. Click here to explore.

Yoga Resources

Books, videos, teachers, websites, places to buy really hot yoga clothes (kidding), and generally anything I find that I think others might find useful.

A Bit About Eve

I’ve been teaching since I was 35. I’m now 73. In that time there have been a few changes. Click here if you want to find out a bit about my life.

Media

I know, I know.  Yoga teachers all want to teach remotely.  I’ve been no exception.  Here are some video and audio productions that I’ve made. Not many – it’s something that I alway mean to get around to.

Shop

No, I’m not selling yoga mats or clothing.  I don’t even have a t-shirt… yet.  But from time to time I find myself with something that someone may want.  Have a look, I’m never sure what you’ll find.
