Eileen became a certified kid's yoga instructor with Melissa Mayes of stretch.play.yoga organization in 2014 and has since completed her 200 hour vinyasa yoga teacher training with Julie Kraisler and Daniel Mullaney of Yoga to the People in San Francisco. Teaching yoga to adults and children allows her to bring a mindful perspective to academic curriculum in education, as she is writing a mentor-ship program for youth based around ideas of self love and empowerment. She incorporates physical and mental awareness into her everyday teaching practice as it is an essential part of lifelong learning. Eileen earned her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and a Masters in Education (Curriculum and Instruction) at San Jose State University. She taught with Oakland Unified School District from 2016-2017, and Urban Montessori Charter School from 2017-2018 in Oakland. Though she taught yoga in her free time while teaching at elementary school, she has now devoted her full time into teaching yoga, communicating with the yoga community via her instagram and facebook pages, @YogaLeilei.

Christmas Day Holiday Bhakti Flow
Bhakti: selfless devotion as means of achieving enlightenment
Flow: a dynamically fluid type of yoga that connects movement with breath, generating heat by mindfully moving in and out of postures. It is fast paced that has shorter holds in poses and requires focus and concentration on each breath and movement.
Bhakti flow: A rigorous and dynamic flow class for experienced yoga students well versed in the language of yoga and comfortable with a fast-paced practice. The class challenges both the body and the mind with creative sequencing, advanced body and breath awareness in asanas and assorted music. Each class begins and ends with chanting and dedication (both essential elements of Bhakti Yoga).
