About the event

Do you have imbalances in your body, such as scoliosis, one leg shorter than the other or muscle weakness on one side? Perhaps you have an asymmetrical posture following an injury, as a result of your work or a sport you play regularly?

Both Eve and Emma were diagnosed with scoliosis in their youth and through the disciplines they teach, they have each explored and discovered movements and poses that bring their bodies back into a more balanced state. With dedicated practice, they both find they are generally pain free most of the time.

Their workshop will focus on releasing chronic tension and holding patterns through movement, improving proprioception by using our senses as well as strengthening areas of inactivity or weakness. We will look at what causes and exacerbates imbalance and how our minds, as well as our bodies, can help us find more comfort and freedom.

We will begin with a short introduction to asymmetry in the body, followed by a Pilates session with Emma. After a short break, Eve will lead a session of yoga and movement, followed by some time for discussion or questions.

Emma Brown

Emma fell in love with movement in the form of ballet and modern dance from the age of 5. Throughout school and university she played a variety of sports, and discovered a passion for Pilates and yoga in her early twenties. In 2019 Emma completed the Merrithew (STOTT) Pilates Intensive Mat and Total Barre Level 1 Foundation courses. She loves teaching much more than she expected to and especially loves seeing positive changes in people.

Eve Cunard

Eve began attending yoga classes regularly at age 19. While at university in Brighton, England, she was swept up by the inspirational yoga of Vanda Scaravelli. This led Eve to complete her BTEC Yoga Teacher Training at Morley College in London in 2003. After returning to South Africa in 2005, Eve taught regular yoga classes in Storms River and then in Plettenberg Bay. She has facilitated various workshops and retreats and has worked therapeutically one-on-one with students of all ages. In recent years, Eve has been influenced by the Feldenkrais Method and her own anatomy studies, yoga practice and experimentation. In 2016, Eve completed her Aerial Yoga teacher training and continues to turn her students’ worlds upside-down with her new passion. She remains entranced by the harmony of science and creativity that is yoga and has now been teaching for over 20 years.
