“Yoga helps me create a sacred space, one in which I can find inner peace and purpose. The integration of Buddhism and yoga brings about a deep and enriching experience with fundamental implications on my daily life”

Eddy first encountered Yoga when Eion Finn recommended he tried out a vinyasa class in Vancouver. the soft flows brought about in this discipline and the interplay with balance and weight had captivated him. His began to notice that as his expertise grew through training, his ability to expand his mind and explore his inner self by reflective introspection had grown immensely.
Eddy grew up in a Buddhist practicing environment and he likes to explore these avenues of ancient philosophy through his teaching of vinyasa.
Eddy was trained by Kenny Graham, Sianna Sherman, Noah Maze, Nico Luce and Uzanne Slocum-Gori in Canada and London
Eddy currently lives in Canada and frequently visits Israel

Meditation utilizes a variety of techniques to achieve inner peace, induce self-reflection and introspection, strengthen the spiritual connection and general wellbeing  and provide oneself with a sense of accomplishment. Meditation, therefore, is an important tool that we can use for self-healing and realization. Meditation is often mischaracterized as a method to silence our thoughts; however, this is not the case. It is rather a tool to reflect on our thoughts and inspect them from a different perspective, withholding any judgment or criticism. In fact, we can train our way of thinking and thereby gain a healthier outlook on any adversities that we may be facing in our daily lives. The advantages associated with meditation include a clearer, less stressful and less anxious emotional state. Moreover, meditation often manifests by an improved physiological state such as a lower blood pressure and a stronger immune system. While meditation can take different forms, there are four overarching requirements that are fundamental for successful meditation, regardless of the specific meditative approach:
A quite place to practice, devoid of any distractions.
A comfortable meditation posture (sitting, laying down, walking etc.)
A simple to practice meditation techniques (this can include mindful breathing, a specific word or phrase, a certain object)
An open mind (you should allow you mind to guide you and try not to resist any distracting thoughts that come into your head, but rather let them flow in and out of your thoughts naturally)
