At the OM House the Ashtanga yoga method is taught in its traditional form know as “Mysore Practice” which originated in Mysore South India.
Students are taught individually within a group environment and practice at their own pace with one-on-one advice given by the teacher.
Working in this way allows you to focus on your breath and encourages a meditative quality to your practice.
I hope the Om House will be a supportive space for you to delve deeper into your practice of yoga
Complete beginners are always welcome.
Certified to teach both the Ashtanga Yoga method and the Iyengar Yoga method since 1981, Eileen started yoga at age 20.
She was fortunate enough to have, as her first teacher, an inspiring dedicated Iyengar yoga teacher. Within a year she was practicing and learning under the guidance of Shandor Remete now established in The Shadow Yoga practice.
She found my way to India in the 1980’s studying with Mr BKS Iyengar for several years and assisting him in various classes.
Several years and trips to India later, she began the practice of Ashtanga yoga with Sri K Pattabhi Jois, and continue to explore the practice to this day.
In addition to teaching yoga, Eileen loves ocean swimming, reading, writing and walking other people’s dogs.
With Eileen, you'll be welcomed into a supportive and friendly community where everyone is supported from complete beginners to those with an established practice.
Your practice length will vary between 40min when you start, up to 1 hour & 40 min with more experience.
You will be slowly guided through the Ashtanga Yoga series of postures, developing the strength and flexibility of your body, creating a balanced breathing pattern, and ultimately learning to steady your mind and the senses.
