Eve has been practicing yoga for 20 years. Drawn to it for relief from back pain following a childhood horseback riding injury, she grew to appreciate the insight yoga provides into physical, mental, and emotional patterns, and its value as a tool for developing the mind.
 
In 2001, Eve began teaching classes for actors at theatre companies and studios in New York City. Since then, she completed a two-year teacher-training program at the Iyengar Institute of New York, earned a national certification from IYNAUS  (Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States) at the Junior Intermediate One level, and founded of The Nerve of Expression, a community project offering yoga  to artists with multiple sclerosis. She now teaches at The Iyengar Institute, Yogasana Center, Samamkaya Backcare Center for Backcare and Scoliosis Collective, Yogaworks, and privately.
 
In June of 2006, Eve traveled to Pune, India to study with BKS Iyengar, his daughter Geeta, and son Prashant. Since then, she has returned every other year to develop her practice and assist in the medical classes there. Eve also continues her studies with James Murphy, whom she also assists, along with Brooke Myers, in the Specific Needs class at the Iyengar Institute of New York. She studied for many years with Mary Dunn, Kevin Gardiner, and Lara Warren.

Eve has worked as an actor and producer on the Broadway stage, in the film and television industry, and in regional theatres throughout America. She studied acting at Northwestern University, The British American Drama Academy, and The Old Globe Theatre.

Eve strives to communicate the possibility of being effortful without aggression, of embodying the depth our ourselves without strain. She views the practice of yoga as an opportunity to explore the nature of life and what it is to be a human being; to see ourselves truthfully, discover what is important to us, and weave that insight into the way we live our lives.
