evelyn hurtado


I began Yoga in my early 20’s. Yoga was my escape from working long stressful hours as a stylist in the fashion industry in NYC. I recall stepping into my first Jivamukti Yoga class in NY & immediately i was hooked! The experience became a life changing experience.

She completed level 1 Jivamukti Yoga teacher training in 1999. Her style of Yoga is influenced by the Jivamukti Yoga Centre in NYC as well as Ashtanga Yoga, which she studied under the guidance of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois in India in 1999/2000. Her yoga practice also incorporates elements of dance & music. For 18 years she’s taught Jivamukti (Vinyasa Yoga based) & Ashtanga Yoga in NY, London, Madrid, & Edinburgh, but she’s drawn to the Jivamukti/ Vinyasa Yoga style more. I enjoy the freedom of expression in these styles. I feel in this way i can bring awareness into my body at the time of the practise, & anticipate its needs. Evelyn always opens up her class with a devotional ancient chant (prayer) in order to connect to the moment. Her style is a wave-like dance flow of movements, leaving you both relaxed & full of life!
