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.

Yoga Suits Her: Announcing a Brand-New Incarnation

Text about a brand-new day framed by flowers and butterfly, to illustrate Yoga Suits Her.

When I was growing up, ‘posting’ meant you needed to involve a postman and a letter. Receiving something through the act of posting meant that you got a letter. Do people even write letters anymore?

I started writing posts for my blog, The Ville, in 2006. Lesley Seebold of Change Focus Media encouraged me to do it because she thought I had an interesting story. This is the story of the group that I am part of called the Shedders. Eventually, there would be a film, a book and a blog about the Shedders.

I wrote my posts on The Ville blog reluctantly because I was afraid of writing to a global audience. All sorts of people unbeknown to me might find me and read about me.

What happened surprised me. Instead of the blog writing being burdensome or scary, my passion for writing grew and grew.

The Ville blog morphed into a new and beautiful creature, Yoga Suits Her in 2010. To date, I’ve published 1257 posts.

I’m excited to announce that YSH has a fresh incarnation, one that is simpler to navigate. There’s a new design that lets you easily access all the wealth of my writing in ‘The Vault’ archives. As well, the brand-new site is where you can find all manner of Eve resources in one place: books, videos, practice cards and posters. There’s even a shop.

My husband, Daniel Weinstein, is the brains behind my blog. I call him my computer guru which implies that he has been teaching me how to get around on WordPress. Not true. As good as I am as a yoga practitioner and teacher, I am virtually unteachable regarding management of software. So, I write, and Daniel makes my writing look good and gets it out into the world.

I bow down in gratitude for the days and weeks and long service Daniel has dedicated to creating the brand-new Yoga Suits Her. He is a perfectionist.

But at the same time, you are the ones I’m writing for. We would love you our readers to have a play and a look at the site so we can have your feedback. What works? What doesn’t work? What would you like to have more of? Any feedback or suggestions at all are very welcome.

Of course, we would love to hear any praise for YSH, too. Especially if you have been a loyal follower of the blog over the years. We really hope to hear from you about the new YSH!

The Ultimate Treat: A Yoga Retreat

The Ultimate Treat: A Yoga Retreat

The first time I went on a meditation retreat, I could not for the life of me imagine how I could find the time for it. Between teaching, running my yoga studio, and doing my own yoga practice, it was never going to happen. Then it dawned on me. I could just take out my diary (this was well before google calendars) and mark out the required days. So, I did. I drew a line through the ten days that the vipassana retreat was scheduled for and made a mental fence around those dates. Subsequently, everything fell into place. […]

 I’ve been away for a couple of weeks, visiting family in the U.S. When I came back to Australia, I went on retreat for 8 days.I want to share with you a few things I learned on this hiatus. These are insights that I might even categorise as spiritual practice.Gifts From My FamilySpending time with my family is sometimes the toughest test of my life commitment to be kind and non-reactive. However, in the company of my family, when I reacted in a non-loving way, this is when I got to practice forgiving myself. […]

On the Cusp of the Path of Love Course

  Sitting at the airport in Los Angeles, my two and a half weeks in the USA is about to come to an end. It’s been intense. I’ve been to the Sonoran desert of Arizona, attended a heartfelt family wedding on Ohio’s Lake Erie, stayed in the Golden Gate Park neighbourhood of San Francisco, enjoyed Napa/Sonoma’s wine country, bathed in the mineral springs of Harbin, and spent a night in the severely bushfire-ravaged region of Lake County.When I began this trip, I was feeling sorely in need of a change, a shake-up of a low winter mood.

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.
