“Live authentically anyway. Love yourself anyway. Be okay anyway.”
Originally from Indiana, Evren returned to Indianapolis by way of Singapore. Indy was originally just a landing place for them, but it has ended up being home for the past 5 years. Evren came to The Hot Room after a conversation with Lukas Schooler during a cast party for George Orwell’s 1984. The Hot Room quickly became home shortly after they took their first Bikram class and connected with Hye Jin and Laura. Evren believes they live more authentically through their yoga practice. They continue to learn and allow space to grow and change. They think yoga can be fun and healing, and believe everyone deserves that experience.

This changes all of the time, but right now my favorite postures are Twisting Triangle and Bird of Paradise. Parivrtta Trikonasana (twisting triangle) feels so good on my spine when I get those deep, juicy twists, and Svarga Dvijasana (bird of paradise) is a challenge of control, breath, and balance that pushes me in my practice.
