After completing her studies, Eva travelled through South-East Asia to West Africa, Europe, North America and Mexico, broadening her view of the world & now lives & teaches in the stunning natural countryside of Bellingen, Australia.
Eva's approach to life and healing stems from her belief that we are all made up of many layers: physical, emotional, mental and energetic – which all need to be communicating to each other harmoniously, so that we can live conscious & healthy lives. Eva is passionate about encouraging this internal communication & harmony through her practice & her teachings.
