EVA HAMILTON - CANADA

Eva Hamilton is a certified & experienced yoga teacher from Canada. Passionate about yoga since youth, Eva has taught yoga professionally since she turned seventeen. Her teaching reflects her holistic training. Each class, she seeks a balance between the effort of asana & movement and the surrender of breath awareness, meditation, and relaxation. Her intention in teaching is to craft a supportive & nourishing energy, allowing students to connect with their own inner resources of strength & peace. 

Eva’s classes draw on many styles, perspectives & trainings in yoga.  She encourages her students to be curious and playful on the mat in order to find their edge, but not push past that place into any strong place of discomfort. Eva shares mindful themes and integrates meditative verbiage to help her students reflect & release. 

Her flow classes seek an attentive balance between mindful & functional alignment, without sacrificing the transformative state of flow that unites body & consciousness with rhythmic breath.  Yet, while she loves the creative possibilities of a flow based practice, her greatest passion is healing – helping clients to let go of disconnection, pain & stress. Her gentle energy is best known for her restorative & yin practices.

Eva is grateful to have studied for over 1000 hours with teachers including Judith Hanson Lasater, Bo Forbes, Yogrishi Vishvketu, Susi Hatley, Todd Lavictoire, Gayle Gayatri Poapst, Shai Plonski, & many more. Her background includes hatha yoga, akhanda yoga, yin yoga, restorative yoga, yoga tune up®, prenatal yoga, classical kundalini, hatha raja, back care yoga, chair yoga, anatomy & therapeutics, Thai yoga massage and yogic lifestyle coaching. She loves the opportunity to draw on her religious studies degree from Queen’s University to unpack yoga philosophy in an accessible & enjoyable way.  Eva is also a certified Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner & loves connecting with clients through the language of healing touch. Having previously owned a studio in Canada, Eva’s love of travel keeps her nomadic. She has facilitated retreats and taught abroad in Scotland, France and Mexico.
