We’re so excited to welcome Eve K. to the obé fam! Eve brings over 15 years of yoga experience to the box with a flow that will leave you sweaty & renewed. Curious to learn more? We chatted with Eve #BTS 👇
Tell us a bit about yourself!
I am 37 years old & have 2 kids that are 7 and 10 (both girls!). We live in the West Village, but I’m originally from Connecticut. My journey to fitness started with yoga – my roommate in college actually had an autoimmune disorder & in an effort to support her, I went fully organic and we started doing yoga. I quickly found that yoga was the thing that kept me centered and sane.
Yoga has since followed me throughout my life including both of my pregnancies and both of my recoveries. I’m so lucky that yoga has become my career, not just a private practice!
What are you most excited to share with the obé fam?
I am so grateful for my own yogic practice and I’ve always wanted to share that. The opportunity to bring what grounds me to people who maybe also need some grounding is a really special opportunity. To be able to do that for people who don’t only live in my neighborhood or who have the availability to come to my classes is really amazing – I love that I can share this practice that serves me so deeply with people everywhere!
What are 3 things that members can expect to take away from your class?
They can expect to leave feeling centered, stronger & with a little more clarity.
What is your typical morning routine?
My mornings are always different because of my schedule and #momLIFE! I always drink a bunch of water, have a coffee & wait to eat until after class. 2 days a week I take my girls to school – I plan my schedule so that I’m able to do that. It’s my absolute favorite thing!
Beauty product you can’t live without, between class and sweay selfies?
My own face oil! I make a product called Bare Thirty Five Face Oil that sells on Free People and it was designed specifically for people on-the-go. If you always wash your face between classes you’re in trouble (over-stripping your skin of it’s natural oils) but, if you don’t wash your face, you’re also in trouble. This oil is the perfect, hydrating skin solution – it’s super clean & smells really yummy with a mix of 15 different oils (a mix between floral, citrus and spicy).
Other items that are always in your bag?
Water, PawPaw (the best chapstick!) & my computer.
Go-to healthy snack?
My new favorite thing is Split Nutrition – it’s basically a packet of PB&J that you can just eat on the fly (or spread on a rice cake/bread!)
If you could have dinner with one person who would it be and where would you go?
I’d hands down go to La Villa (an old school Italian spot in Park Slope, Brooklyn) with my kids – it’s just the best and their favorite!
What motivates you to get up and move every day?
The people I’m doing it with and for.
If it doesn’t challenge, it cannot change you. My biggest growth has happened in the moments where I couldn’t see myself out of the situation. Life is a process and the more challenge and trauma we get to go through, the more growth we get to see for ourselves. So if you instead choose to see those obstacles as blessing, your perspective will shift and you’ll get stronger.
Anything else the obé fam should know about you?
I love teaching. I live for that really amazing feeling when you know there is somebody else with you, who understands what you’re doing and who is getting good from it. I get to be the best part of people’s days and that is a blessing.
