What you'll do

Before rehearsal or a show, I often sneak under the stage or behind a curtain to practice yoga and both mentally and physically prepare for my performance. Sometimes I practice alone, and other times I'm teaching fellow artists or even show technicians and management!! After years of traveling and dancing with some of the world's best I'd love to share my yoga practice and Cirque du Soleil stories with you.

BREATHE
After saying hello and sharing brief introductions we’ll get down to business with pranayama (breathing) exercises to mindfully bring ourselves into the present moment.

MOVE
I will guide you through an asana practice (yoga postures) where we can combine movement with breath, work up a bit of a sweat, and find new healthy space in our bodies.

MEDITATE
We’ll finish the session with dhyāna (meditation) as a way to ground ourselves in the here and now, and seal our practice together.

Q&A
Let’s chat ☺ I’m open to your questions and am excited to share my love of yoga and the ins and outs of life with Cirque du Soleil.

*Please keep in mind that if you sign up for this experience you are expected to participate in the yoga practice. No spectators!

I'm a classically trained dancing yogini turned Cirque du Soleil artist!

I’ve had soloist roles in 3 Cirque du Soleil productions; and have danced for the Royal Family in London, starred in The Beatles’ LOVE 10th anniversary music video, and danced for Celine Dion in her iconic Las Vegas show. I adore what I do!

I was introduced to Yoga at the Rotterdam Dance Academy 20 years ago. Traveling to India, Thailand, Burma and beyond, my love affair with Yoga continues. I've completed teacher trainings in Hatha, Trauma Recovery, Elderly and Prenatal Yoga as well as hours and hours of hands-on teaching. I have taught professional level athletes, baby boy Beatles at the LOVE show, and community classes in the cities where I've lived. I get such joy facilitating a connection to Yoga for others.

I believe in yoga for everybody and ALL bodies!

Such a treat! I loved a peak into Eira’s life as an artist, and it was wonderful to share my practice with her. She made it really fun and personal. I miss sharing space for yoga, and this was a wonderful experience! She was so encouraging and supportive!

What a wonderful experience. Backstage Yoga is a perfect class for reconnecting with mind, body and spirit. Fabulous instruction. Wish I could practice yoga every day with Eira.

Wow. Eira is an incredibly talented, kind and experienced performer and yoga instructor. I truly enjoyed this yoga session and greatly appreciate her excellent feedback to correct my posture and/or poses. If you love Cirque du Soleil, artistry and performance, and a knock-out yoga session, Eira is your go-to. And no, I am not advanced - Eira worked with what I've got. :) Many thanks!!
