Evelyn Van Antwerp
Evelyn started practicing yoga many years ago because of its benefits for the back and neck difficulties she was experiencing, and soon discovered that the benefits were far greater than just addressing her physical well-being. For Evelyn, yoga has become an avenue for self-knowledge, self-love, awareness and physical well-being. Evelyn has a Masters in Curriculum, with sixteen years in education teaching students and adults, becoming a certified yoga instructor was the perfect choice for her. Evelyn has studied with Yoga Acharya Tej Monga, Judith Laseter, Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews.
She received her 200-hour and 500-hour Yoga Alliance Certification through Namah Shivaya Yoga. Since yoga is very much a personal experience and one based on levels of ability, her endeavor is to teach to the needs of individual students by modifying poses. Her classes are designed for both newcomers and seasoned practitioners. Each class focuses on proper alignment and breathing techniques, with an emphasis on core body strength. Her goal as an instructor is for all of her students to experience the full benefits of yoga.
Evelyn Van Antwerp instructs the following:
Restorative flow is designed for all levels and EVERY BODY. We will intentionally flow slowly holding postures longer to cultivate strength, integration and alignment. Each class will be sequenced leading to a peak posture designed to strengthen and challenge both body and mind. Class will end with a guide meditation integrating body, mind and spirit encouraging harmony and balance on and off the mat.
