Evelyn is the founder and director of Soul Shine Yoga Edinburgh. She completed level 1 Jivamukti Yoga Teacher training in 1998. Her style of yoga is influenced by the Jivamukti Yoga Centre in New York City (where she's from), as well as Ashtanga Yoga, which she studied under the guidance of Sri K Pattabhi Jois in India in 1999. Her yoga practice also incorporates elements of dance & music.
For 17 years she's taught both Vinyasa yoga & Ashtanga yoga in New York, London, Madrid & Edinburgh, but she is drawn to the Vinyasa yoga /Jivamukti Yoga style more. "I enjoy the freedom of expression in these styles. I feel in this way I can bring awareness into my body at the time of the practise, and anticipate its needs."
Evelyn always opens up her class with a devotional ancient chant accompanied with the beautiful sound of the harmonium. Her style is a wave-like dance flow of movements. An elegant yet physically challenging practice.
Evelyn's classes are not a set series; each class is unique in its composition. She sets weekly sequences for herself & shares them with her students.
Evelyn is an ambassador for Lululemon Athletica.
