Praise for Previous Workshops 

“Eve has an amazing amount of information and a highly competent way of articulating complex content in a manageable and easy to understand manner. So much thought-provoking information! The yoga practices complimented the info presented. They were easy behaviors that were accessible to all! Well worth the time and three more hours worth!!” – Deena
 
“This was really helpful, thank you so much! I have been in therapy for a year and a half and will be adding yoga to my journey of healing.” – Trish
 

“Eve is an amazing wealth of knowledge. She’s able to take rather complex concepts, such as neurotransmitters, and relate them to the real world in a way that makes sense. Highly recommend her.” – Michelle 

 
“My daughter has been trying to get me to do yoga for years. I finally tried it and actually enjoyed it. This class help me understand how yoga can improve health and why that is so.” – Ann  
 
“This workshop was incredibly valuable: supportive of my own yoga practice both as a student and teacher, my own physical and emotional health, and helpful to understand the greater context of mental illness and how to better relate to this community – which is essentially all of us in this day and age. Eve is incredibly knowledgeable, resourceful, and fun – keeping the class engaging while also learning a wealth of information.” – Eliana
