Eva Yam

Eva started down the path of yoga by accident in 2001, seeking a brief escape from the corporate world with a week-long spa experience. It happened to be ‘Ashtanga Yoga Week’ at the spa; by the end of the week, she had completed the primary series and was hooked on yoga. Armed with Chicago yoga references, she began seeking out local teachers, and eventually met Tom Quinn and Quinn Kearney. Since then, Eva has traveled extensively to seek out and to study with senior teachers both in and out of the Ashtanga system, with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois US Tours, teacher training from David Swenson and in-depth studies with Rolf & Marci Naujokat, Chuck Miller & Maty Ezraty. While her focus is Ashtanga yoga, she recognizes that each body is different, and works with each student based on their respective approach to their practice. She is indebted to all her teachers for their guidance, support and endless patience.
