About me

I started my journey with Yoga in 2008, attending weekly classes to unwind from the corporate lifestyle in my hometown, Barcelona.
Although I soon started feeling the physical benefits of this practice, I realized that this was also re-shaping me on a deeper level. I then committed to a more regular practice through private lessons with a teacher that would introduce me into Krishnamacharya tradition.
In 2011 I decided to move to Edinburgh and started my teacher training in the same tradition I connected so deeply with.

Yoga

My Yoga teachings follow those of Krishnamacharya and his son Desikachar, based on the principles of Viniyoga. This approach is uniquely suited to adapt the practice to meet the needs of any individual or group context. Viniyoga methodology provides multi-layered, developmental practices for the healthiest and most athletic student, as well as gentle therapeutic practices for students with health issues, like those who live with trauma or chronic conditions, like MS or ME.

Honesty, respect, compassion and unconditional positive regard are humanist and yogic values that I try to reflect in my classes, also in the way I live my life and my relationships.

Since I started teaching in 2012 my relationship with Yoga has evolved in different ways, my classes are the result of influences from other traditions and teachers that I find inspiring.

I teach mostly private, corporate and outreach classes all across Edinburgh. Get in touch with me if you would like to book a session or just to know more.

Thai Yoga Massage

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage practiced for over 2500 years, is based on the Ayurvedic principles of balancing one’s energy by working on the “Sen”, energy lines that run throughout the body. When the Sen become blocked, the energy stagnates and the body loses its balance, allowing disease.

In Thai massage, stretching, Sen work, and acupressure are used to open energy channels, allowing the body to rebalance itself and heal. Applying pressure to points along energy lines, combined with gentle rocking, compression, and elongation of the muscles with yoga type stretches, helps to relax the muscles and open the joints enabling energy to flow.

Bookings

Eva manages to combine an excellent personal manner, which puts everybody that ease, with an ability to push the participants of the class as far as their abilities will allow.
I have MS which leaves me with significant disabilities. I have been seeing Eva for more than three years now. I have had a number of the other previous yoga instructors. Where Eva excels is in her ability to tailor the exercises to individual’s differing abilities thus ensuring that everybody gets the maximum benefit from the session.
Eva is extremely knowledgeable in yoga and demonstrates real passion for its teachings and benefits. Her sessions are always well planned. I would heartily recommend anyone with an interest in yoga having a session with Eva.

I have been attending Eva’s yoga classes for the past couple of years.
I complete her classes re-charged, with a stronger knowledge of what ‘Yoga’ entails and a better understanding of the relationship I have with it, certainly from a personal perspective.
Eva is an honest yogi with depth, character, and compassion and her study portrays that, regularly taking you to a union and focus that I had never really experienced before. She has a soft nature, with an easy relaxed manner, however, she is a strong teacher with a clear direction.

Steven Braxton

Eva is an exceptional yoga teacher. Her classes are always delivered to a very high professional standard, carefully planned and expertly executed. All ages and abilities are catered for within the group and everyone feels included. Each week has sufficient variation built into the content to ensure that complacency does not set in. Standards are high and everyone is encouraged to go beyond the level to which they think they may be capable. Eva builds a secure and trustworthy environment in which all students can reach their potential.
Eva’s yoga class is the highlight of my week and carries me through each day until the next session.

Susan Robertson

Eva shares her yoga wisdom as she slowly awakens the body by leading the class through a series of carefully sequenced postures, the practice both subtle and vigorous, allowing mind body and spirit to come into true alignment.
she encourages us to practice self awareness by exploring our bodies, at our own pace and without criticism of judegment’
I arrive feeling rusty, stuck and exhausted – i leave feeling shiny glowing and free!
