"At our request, Eva Hamilton has developed and offered a "Yoga for Anxiety" class for a group of our staff and clients, on a biweekly basis for the last 6 months.

The takeaway coping techniques that she teaches are so our clients who are living with serious anxiety, panic, and trauma. On behalf of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Grey/Bruce Branch, we would like to thank Eva for her practical support, forthoughtfuless and skill. The group is a definite success in helping individuals working towards their own recovery." - Melanie Knowles Reg. N, Counselor/Case Manager, Canadian Mental Health Association - Grey Bruce helpful
When I say that doing yoga with Eva saves my mind, body, soul, and spirit I with no exaggeration. During the final months of my graduate program I was a mess. I was constantly in state of panic and anxiety. I couldn't eat, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn't sleep-I was barely functional. I decided to take a restorative class at the studio near my uni to see if it would help manage my stress and bring me back to myself. That class led me to take 4 classes a week with Eva. Each week I felt more at peace; heart openers made me cry less, I left class feeling hopeful and grateful. Eva would check in with me, constantly making sure that the poses worked for me and all of her students individually. By the end of my program, through practicing yoga with Eva, I was becoming myself again. She made the class educational and helped me to understand the why of yoga poses not just the how. She also created a truly spiritual setting-something that is rare to find in western yoga classes these days. Yoga with Eva is a philosophical practice as well as a mental health lesson and a spiritual journey. If you ever are blessed enough to take her courses I guarantee your life will change for the better. I am a better person because of her and even though I live across the world I still take her online classes as I have yet to find a teacher as magical as her." - Nikka Tahan
"I have practiced yoga for just over two years as part of a yoga club and have experienced many different teachers and styles. Eva is a wonderfully mindful teacher who has calmed my inner fire and managed to tame my stress and anxiety. I now don't only get loads more out of my day but joint aches and pains and stress-related symptoms are kept at a minimum bearable level. Namaste Eva. Sincerely, Naomi MacKay"
"Eva is an exceptional yoga teacher who is deeply rooted in love and kindness. She exudes a calming and peaceful energy and it feels like you are being wrapped in her warmth just by being in her class, and listening to her soothing voice. Her wisdom and appreciation for yoga and meditation practices shines through. She’s accommodating and accepting to wherever her students are in their abilities and comfort. Eva goes the extra mile for her yoga guests, and I’ve never experienced another teacher that goes the distance like she does. She is hands down, the BEST yoga teacher I’ve ever had!

"Eva's yin and restorative classes are like a well needed gentle hug for the mind and soul. They are beautifully thought through and delivered with such love and generosity that it is hard not to carry this out of the class and into the rest of your day." - Halle Brown
"The thing I love re Eva Hamilton's classes is that she creates an atmosphere that is both welcoming to all abilities, shows a lot of patience, knows when to offer demonstrations or prompts when needed but can also laugh at herself if something doesn't quite work out or something unexpected happens. Eva is highly skilled self-confidence"I am 100% a challenge - not given to high around helping people and it shows in the classes and workshops she offers especially in reducing pain, stress and anxiety through restorative and yin postures areas where her knowledge really comes across. I have found Eva's classes so useful and an absolute must for my calender both alongside my running/swimming training and to help with stress and anxiety issues when they come up and would recommend Eva's work to anybody." - Richard Mudie
"Eva is one of the best yoga instructors I've ever had. She gives off a calming, positive energy that makes it pretty much impossible not to let go of your worries. She starts and ends every class with carefully chosen, inspirational words, and she emphasizes self-care on the mat -- no matter what style of yoga she is teaching, it's all about loving yourself and meeting yourself where you're at. More than once, I've felt immense emotional releases in her classes that have brought tears to my eyes. I always feel infinitely better after having practiced yoga with Eva. She is a gentle, loving soul and truly cares about her students and their physical, emotional, and spiritual development. She is always taking new courses to further her own growth and add to her students' experiences. Her love for yoga permeates her classes and is easily felt. Being a "fast-paced" kind of person, I never really liked yoga that much until I took one of her classes, because I thought yoga was just a bunch of postures. Eva taught me that it's much , more than that -- it's an approach to life that stays with you wherever you go." - Lindsay Syrett
"The first time I walked into a yoga studio I was 52 years old. I decided I wanted to give it a try but felt that I needed some private instruction before I could drop into a class. Eva Hamilton introduced me to yoga that day, and things haven’t been the same since! Eva is a skilled coach and provides effective prompts to assist her students with their movements and knows when a demonstration is required. She is also patient and quick to laugh when things don’t quite as planned, on the mat. Eva is well versed in many different styles of yoga and can masterfully blend philosophy and asanas. Eva loves to help people. This comes through in her teaching style as well as the kinds of classes and workshops she offers. She has a particular passion for reducing pain, of restorative and yin postures. I highly recommend Eva, for wherever your interest in yoga may lie." - P John Zoll
