Welcome Eve Cowan

Eve and I first connected about a year before I began Pop Up Yoga. I would stop at the Yoga studio she managed in Summerland on my commute home from Santa Barbara. I had an instant connection with her classes. I loved how my tired and stressed out mind and body could find enough strength to breathe through her strong practice and feel so incredibly restored and inspired after class.

I've had the hope that the stars would align someday and that Eve would join the VPUY family... 6 years in and I'm excited to welcome her to the team. Give her a follow on Instagram: @evecowanyoga

In 3-4 sentences tell us about the evolution of your yoga practice:

I had explored yoga here and there - watching a DVD my mom rented, taking a course in college to fulfill an elective credit, attending a donation class with a friend… each time loving it. But when yoga really hit home for me was in 2010 on a trip to India. There, I learned the discipline and dedication required for a deeply personal and transformative yoga practice. And it changed my life.

What’s one thing you wish you could tell yourself when you began your yoga practice:

Begin from where you are. Just start.

In 1-2 sentences why do you teach yoga:

I teach yoga because it feeds my soul. I am honored to be the liaison for others to heal, feel into their bodies, stand in their power and shine brightly.

How long have you taught: Almost 10 years

If you could have lunch with any inspiration individual (dead or alive) who and why:

I would have loved to meet Ram Dass because he’s had such an impact on my own spiritual path. I relate a lot to his journey and his wisdom feels so accessible and real, when some spiritual teachers take on this “holier-than-thou” attitude. Ram Dass was real and down to earth; his kindness, compassion and humility was awe-inspiring.

Favorite Treat: Dark chocolate almonds, ice cream and anything with honey.

Favorite Book: “Be Here Now” by Ram Dass or “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed

How many countries have you been to: Lots! About 15

Spirit Animal: Mama Tiger

One thing we don’t know about you: I grew up in a farming community in Minnesota with less than 1,000 people, no traffic lights, 1 grocery store and a graduating class of 32.
