Esana Lofty

Evelyn (Esana) Lotfy

has practised and taught yoga over 18 years. Since 1992 she has attended the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lennox, Mass. For training and the practice of karma yoga (selfless service). She has been part of the Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training Team, and holds both the Basic Kripalu Teacher Training Certificate (200 hours) and the Professional Level Certfication (500+ hours).

Evelyn is committed to the ongoing process of deepening her own practice, continued training, and sharing her experience with others.

Esana in asanaIn Kripalu Yoga three primary aspects of yoga practice are fused: asana (postures), pranayama (breath) and meditation. The practice is always unique, fluid and seamless in its melding of these tools for awakening and self realization. At the root of the practice is love, compassion and loving kindness.

Esana & Deepam have co-facilitated numerous retreats over the past eight years. Their complimentary skills and attributes create an atmosphere of cooperation, ease and intuitive respect for the information of the moment. They share a love of the strong, and vulnerable, feminine awakening.

Sue here: Just to add my own note to this:

I have studied yoga off and on for years, but when I began doing yoga with Esana, I felt for the first time like my body was my partner in that activity – no longer inadequate, no longer a dumb and uncooperative animal part of me, but a beloved, honoured, and valued partner. A transcendent experience!
