Andrea began practicing asana (the physical practice of yoga) in her early 20′s as a means to open her tight overworked muscles after years of training for marathons, adventure races and triathlons. Her first experience with yoga lit up her life and offered a method of training in a new way.
Her practice continues to evolve by drawing inspiration from many different forms of yoga, particularly Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin and Power. Andrea is known for combining strength and power with softness and fluid motion. Her creative flows wrap together with a little yoga humor, all while instilling the importance of proper alignment and smart sequencing to create a balanced practice with both Yin/Yang.
Andrea completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training in 2004 at a summer intensive program in Ottawa led by Yogi Vishva from India. She has taken numerous workshops and trainings over the years but has learned the most from her ever growing students. She is currently teaching regular yoga in Ottawa with classes that cater to a wide-range of students and include instruction for corporate clients, numerous yoga studios, and community centers. Andrea’s specialty is Yoga For Athletes and she taught for the NHL team, The Ottawa Senators, for six years. Her intention is always to provide a fresh creative class geared specifically to her students at hand. Andrea completed her first Yoga DVD “Yoga for Runners” (2010), and is a Lululemon Athletica ambassador (2010-present).
