Nisargardatta was teaching in Bombay, India in the form of Advaita Vedanta. She believes Adyashanti is the living embodiment of the teachings of Nisargadatta.
Eileen’s teaching is infused with the passion and understanding that comes from her commitment to yoga as a spiritual path to relieve suffering. Each class is an exploration into stillness, moving from gross to subtle while gently penetrating the layers of our Being. She brings compassion and vitality to her classes along with close attention to every student. A native of Scotland, Eileen also brings a lively Celtic spirit and humor to her teaching.
