Eva was born to a mother who encouraged her to look beyond the normal from a young age. Her mother introduced her to various esoteric concepts and taught her basic meditation techniques as a child. Eva first came across yoga in her childhood playing around with a Yoga book which was lying around the house. Although she never decided to go deep at this stage, she always felt that it would be something which would become a part of her life when she grew up.
During her travels in Peru in 2009 she stumbled across her first Ashtanga Mysore class. Straight away she realised its power and dedicated the rest of her time there practicing. However once she left she found it hard to find Ashtanga but very quickly began picking up a daily Hatha Yoga practice. Within less than a year of practice she was being asked to teach, which at the time she did tentatively feeling she was too early in her own practice to really guide others.
After two years, in 2011 finally she began her path on the Ashtanga route, finding a small Mysore group in southern Costa Rica in 2011. From then on in she kept a regular Mysore practice. By the time she reached Mexico City in 2012 she was lucky enough to practice with her first Authorised teacher Arne Espejel. Due to her traveling nature she has been lucky enough to practice with many great teachers such as Hamish Hendry, Regina Ehlers, Louise Ellis, Rolf and Marci Naujokat, Boonchu Tanti, David Swensen, Matias Guerra. She feels like she got her greatest inspiration and understanding of the practice with Regina Ehlers and Hamish Hendry.
In July 2013 to deepen her knowledge she did a 200 hour TTC with Olivia Martinez and later an Ashtanga Intensive with David Swenson in 2014.
October 2013 was her first trip to the source of Ashtanga Yoga, Mysore India to practice with her now Guru, Paramaguru Sharath Jois at the prestigious KPJAYI (K PAttabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Insitute). Since then she has returned every year each time practicing for 3 months at the feet of her Guru.
She received the blessing and authorisation to teach the Ashtanga method by Sharathji in January 2016.
She began teaching Mysore classes in Koh Phangan, Thailand in 2016, first assisting in Yoga Retreat, before moving to Orion to teach. She later decided to go independent and taught her own Mysore programme from then on. She recently gave the program the name MYSORE KOH PHANGAN.
Eva tries to practice with Sharathji as much as possible and has been with him on tour in London, Bali Copenhagen and most recently Bangkok. She was also lucky enough to follow him on the Sadhana retreat to Utterkashi In the Himalayas.
Eva is currently being guided through Intermediate Series with Sharathji and has been honored to have assisted him twice in the main Shala in her last two trips to Mysore.
