Welcome Eve Parker, yoga instructor and mental health specialist to the Om Thrive family!
Embodied practices like yoga and meditation have been repeatedly scientifically proven to be effective at supporting mental health and helping people heal from daily stress to severe and complex trauma. As a mental health therapist, Eve brings 7 years experience in the mental health field to her yoga and mindfulness teaching and is dedicated to bridging the gap between therapies for mind and body to treat mental illness, addictions, and trauma from a holistic standpoint.
Eve enjoys teaching energetic and mindfully-sequenced vinyasa flow, detail-oriented and anatomy-based hatha, and deeply grounding yin practices. She weaves in themes from modern Western psychology, neuroscience, ancient Eastern philosophy, and applications for taking lessons learned on the mat into the rest of life to create a well-rounded practice to nourish mind, body, and spirit.
Eve values cultivating a safe, trauma-informed space in which consent is paramount, making classes accessible to each student's individual anatomy through empowering students to learn and listen to their bodies and through creative use of props and cues.
