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:
If you have never taken a yoga class or simply prefer to move at your own pace and enjoy the gentle variations of all the postures, then this class is for you.
This intro to meditation class will lay the foundation of a successful meditation practice, including breath work, concentration, and deep relaxation. Classes will vary in mediation styles allowing all participants, including beginners, to learn a variety of tools to establish a practice. An introduction to hand mudras (gestures), chakras (energy centers), and mantras (energetic statements) will be explained and introduced should you choose to practice them. Dress comfortably.
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.

This special workshop is designed to help reduce stress and calm the body and mind for deep relaxation. We will begin with supported yoga postures, using props and gravity to passively stretch and open the body, followed by a 45 minute practice of Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation practice that is effective in reducing stress and anxiety and promoting restful sleep. (Plan a quiet, relaxing evening afterwards to maximize the benefits of this practice.) Mark your calendar and join us to rest, restore & receive the extraordinary benefits of this practice.
