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.

 

Wendy Loven

I started practicing yoga in 2003 in order to help my body recover from a back injury. I soon discovered that yoga was good for so much more than healing back pain, it helped in all areas of my life, from reducing stress to building strength. In 2013, I completed the 200 hour training at Namah Shivaya and in 2015, I completed the 300 hour training. I love introducing new students to the benefits of yoga and showing them the myriad of ways that yoga can be used to improve every aspect of your life!
