Eva Kastel

Biography:
Eva Kastel enjoyed rhythmical gymnastics and modern dance classes as a child, as well as ice-skating, acrobatics, and swimming, all satisfying her love of movement. In her 20s, she taught rhythmical gymnastics at various health clubs and at summer beach resorts in Uruguay. After coming to the US and teaching high school and college-level literature and Spanish courses for 32 years, she found the Yoga Room in Berkeley in 1992. Loving yoga and its benefits for body, mind, and spirit, she graduated as a yoga teacher in 1996. Since then, and now in her 90s, she teaches yoga in the Bay Area and wants to pass on her passion for movement to her students.
