"Eugene Lewins is well versed in anatomy, yoga postures, and both Eastern and Western modalities. He has been teaching yoga since 1997, and is an avid outdoorsman who honors the natural cycles of life. He is a published writer, and carries his own personal story of how Yoga transformed a traumatic injury into a beautiful opportunity for rebirth. His warmth penetrates the hearts of his students, and his sincerity brings people together and builds community and connection." - Signa Cheney, owner Mandala Yoga Studio.
"It seems that it’s life itself that inspires Eugene! Also, nature, adventure, uncovering and discovering what is new. Eugene shares this passion with his students through the lens of yoga in his classes... this is what keeps them so 'alive', vibrant, inspiring, and compelling" - Todd Williamson, owner Ombase Yoga Studio
Eugene has run an annual yoga retreat at the Mazama Lodge on Mt Hood since 2007, combing active and restorative yoga with poetry and a healing circle of communal support.
Eugene is a climb leader with the Mazamas Mountaineering Organization, and has led international trips to Europe and Tibet.
