  • Eileen's class is a "no-judgement zone" -- she encourages each person to work at their own level, according to their individual needs.

  • An injury brought me to Yoga...Eileen has been my inspiration to practice yoga for 4 years, now!  What once was a method to healing my injury has blossomed into a dedication and journey of inner growth, challenge and passion to support my body from head to toe.  Rather than being an instructor, Eileen is a true teacher. She brings magical creativity to her classes while providing a well-rounded yoga program for her students. As a student, you lose track of the time because you are swept away by the flow of class...a true testament to enjoying a class.  Finally, Eileen has a wonderful and caring sense when moving around her teaching studio. She is able to keep an eye on every person so as to encourage healthy poses and physical alignment.  Eileen also is hands-on and comfortable with the power and gift of touch.  When taking a class, it is 'icing on the cake' when Eileen appears to provide an adjustment or stroke to a muscle needing a gentle nudge.  Most importantly, Eileen is human in her approach to yoga.  Her ability to relate, laugh and be real while leading others on the journey of yoga makes her a well-respected individual.  Thank you, Eileen, for your teachings, singing, breathing techniques... and unconditional commitment to Yoga and your students.  I will be a follower for many years to come.

  • Eileen treats each class as a learning experience for her students, encouraging us to explore and nurture the spiritual nature of ourselves as well as to flow with intent through the physical asanas.  Her energy is always positive and upbeat, her approach is completely non-judgmental and encouraging, and her personality is engaging and passionate!  I enjoy challenging myself in her class physically, and I leave with a renewed attitude no matter how tired or distracted I may have felt when I came in.  She's helped me often with mods for those tough poses that I resist -- to put it simply, Eileen rocks!

  • Yoga classes with Eileen are awesome. I look forward to going to class every week, not only because I love yoga, but because Eileen is such a great teacher. She makes everyone feel comfortable, provides useful feedback and helps with adjustments when needed. I'd never taken a yoga class prior to with Eileen, but I haven't stopped taking yoga classes since I started almost three years ago. I attribute this directly to Eileen's teaching methods. I find that during and after classes I am more relaxed, more mentally and emotionally calmed and feel stronger in my balance and flexibility.

  • Eileen is an amazing yoga teacher and I always feel strong, happy, and refreshed after her class. She has a way of making poses I struggle with in other classes feel easy because of the thoughtful way she leads her class through the practice.  She is truly dedicated to her yoga practice and it shines through in her teaching.

  • Eileen embodies everything I look for in a yoga class. Her sense of timing, knowledge, feel for the room, energy and creativity are all present in her teachings. I was inspired so much by her classes that eventually, with Eileen’s encouragement, I became a certified yoga teacher myself. She instills comfort, safety, challenge, humor and fun in all her classes. I have yet to encounter two classes that are exactly alike. Her dedication to the yoga concepts and her own practice, as well as her student’s well being is displayed throughout her teaching. Eileen’s classes also create community: Her classes are not only full, but filled with regulars who see what I see. If you want to enhance your practice or begin yoga with a true master, I highly recommend Eileen, you will not be disappointed!!!

  • The best part about class with Eileen is her teaching style; her classes are different than most modern yoga classes. With Eileen, I feel stillness in each mudra and true awareness in each pose. There is continuation in each practice and the movement from one pose to another feels like completing circle. She also incorporates her anatomy/physiology knowledge into each practice. After each class, I feel fully charged yet calm and collected. Another great quality about her practice is that it brought attention to my breathing and a greater awareness of sensations in my body. Out of all my experiences in yoga, this has been one of the best. I am very grateful that I have Eileen as my yoga teacher.

  • Eileen's yoga classes are always a special treat for me. Through her balanced offering of meditation, breathing exercises and physical challenges, she always helps me understand how to improve. Each new pose comes with a detailed explanation and demonstration. I'm able to take what I learn in the studio and apply it to my everyday life in ways I never expected. I always look forward to my sessions with Eileen.

  • Over time, Eileen has completely reshaped all aspects of my practice and made yoga an integral part of my life. Her classes are thoroughly enjoyable while providing a tremendous depth of information on pose mechanics, bioenergetic effects, and historical context as well as covering a remarkable variety of breathing, balancing, strengthening, stretching and pose sequencing. I learn something new and have fun in every class. Eileen is quick to see when her intervention would be helpful and to what extent it is needed. Eileen’s efforts have dramatically improved the quality of my practice, resulting in greater peace and calm throughout my daily life. I’m so thankful and so lucky to look forward to attending Eileen’s classes. I honestly believe there is not a more thoughtful, hardworking, patient and effective yoga teacher to be found.

  • Eileen's ability to create a safe and comfortable environment in class is a gift that allows her students to achieve their potential and perhaps go a bit beyond. She is always upbeat, yet very grounded and approachable. Her good humor makes the class fun, especially when the poses are challenging. And if you can get a yoga nidra session with her do it:  it's the most incredible 'nap' you'll ever experience. You will feel even more relaxed and energized than after taking a regular class.

  • I've been doing yoga for years and often thought 'oh, this pose just isn't for me.' But Eileen explains things in such a way that I shift ever so slightly in the pose and it feels amazing. Eileen knows how to cue in such a way that each pose has a sweet spot.

  • I have practiced yoga for the past 8 years, and Eileen is far and above the best yoga teacher I have ever had.  She balances movement with stillness, frequently gives gentle corrections, and shares uplifting insights.  I always end practice feeling more centered in both body and mind.

  • Eileen is professional and kind in her instruction. I started my practice 3 years ago as a senior and Eileen has helped me become a student of yoga beyond the mat. She teaches pranayama and incorporates it into the asana portion of classes, which provides so much value in practice and in life. Eileen’s reminder to go back to the breath brought me great stress relief when I struggled with a serious health issue.

  • Eileen infuses her energy into every one of her classes so that I feel transported along even through difficult poses. Eileen magically combines vigorous yoga with great attention to relaxation and letting go. Eileen's class has helped me understand the importance of breathing properly which is a fundamental for living a full life.

  • For Eileen, yoga is a spiritual quest. Her vinyasa class is holistic and uplifting, combining breathwork, meditation, and a practical body mindfulness. She has a natural gift for teaching that makes her seem well beyond her years. I am delighted that she has chosen yoga to share that gift!!
