Eileen Rivers has been
practicing yoga for over 30 years. She began her practice in a Bikram tradition
emphasizing alignment, purposeful sequencing and repetition. Over time she has
explored and studied a variety of traditions and now centers her practice around
the yoga principle of uniting body, breath and mind. She aims to meet each
student where they are and assist them on their unique journey of
self-awareness and growth. Her classes combine classic postures, breathing
inquiries and movement. Her goal is to provide students the opportunity to
experience first-hand the meaning of yoga described in the "Yoga Sutras'
by Pantanjali as meeting and experiencing postures [life] with ease,
comfort, awareness and relaxed strength.
Eileen began studying
at Blue Heron Yoga Studio in 2016. She has been apprenticing with Laris since
spring 2017. Eileen began offering classes with her Summer Series this summer.
She is continuing her instructor studies this fall and offering classes and a
philosophy study group. She also coordinates the Meditation Gatherings at Blue
Heron as part of her wider service to the yoga community.
