Born and raised off-the-grid in Northern BC, Yeva has always felt deeply rooted and connected to nature. Yeva dedicated the majority of her years to dance, which led her to a professional career in contemporary ballet, many of these with Company XIV in NYC. Yoga was, at first, a cross-training tool for dance but it very quickly grew into a dedicated practice – a safe space for connection and healing.
Yeva found her yoga home at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center, NYC where she studied under Dana Flynn and Alison Cramer. In the 9 years that Yeva has been teaching yoga, she has taught in numerous studios, public and private schools, led workshops, local and international retreats, as well as doing promotional work for Lululemon, Tonic Active, and Halfmoon Yoga. Yeva is currently a brand ambassador for Supported Soul.
Recently, Yeva returned to her roots in Northern BC with her husband and two kids where she dedicates her time to mothering, gardening, teaching yoga and leading workshops and retreats.
Yeva’s training includes: Laughing Lotus Yoga Center, NYC (Dana Flynn), Street Yoga, NYC, Bernie Clark (Yin Yoga), Leslie Kaminoff (Yoga Anatomy), Alison Cramer (Ayurveda & Healing), Teresa Campbell (Prenatal Yoga), and Jacqueline Maloney (Kids Yoga), as well as completing her certification as a Cancer Exercise Specialist.
Yeva’s greatest teachers have, and always will be, life itself: experiences, family, relationship, and most of all, her two children.
