HELLO - MY NAME IS EVA VIDAL AND I AM THE OWNER OF THE HOT YOGA STUDIO LOCATED IN DOWNTOWN REDMOND OREGON. I BEGAN PRACTICING YOGA IN 1992 AND I HAVE TAUGHT THOUSANDS OF CLASSES SINCE RECEIVING MY CERTIFICATION IN BIKRAM'S BEGINNING YOGA SERIES IN 1997.
I also hold a certification of completion in Bikram's Advanced Yoga Series. You can find my picture as I demonstrate several of the poses in Bikram's first book.
I took my first Hatha Yoga class as a way to reduce stress and manage my sciatic pain and I instantly fell in love with the yoga’s positive effects. Not only did yoga release stress and tension in my body, but also in my mind. Yoga’s meditative qualities lead me deeper into the study of yoga asana, meditation and pranayama.
Additionally, I studied various yoga styles and traditions, including completing the renowned YogaWorks 200 hr. Ashtanga/Iyengar Yoga Therapy training with Matzy Ezraty and Lisa Walford in 1998, and in 1999, I completed Ana Forrest’s 200hr Yoga Intensive. In 2002, I traveled to Italy to deepen my Iyengar practice with Dona Holleman, and in 2006 I was initiated into Kriya Yoga by Gurunath Siddhanath at the Siddhanath Forest Ashram in Pune, India.
I look forward to seeing you in our hot room very soon.
