Andrea is a gentle soul with a bright spark. Through movement, breath and attention to alignment she strives to create a playful, safe, supported space where all are welcome and encouraged to explore their own bodies. She strongly values connection through kindness, honesty, and empowerment through education.
As a young child Andrea was automatically drawn to movement and used it as way to explore the world around her. You could often find her around the neighbourhood in her roller-skates, biking the streets, or dancing in her living room. Eventually Andrea found her way to the dance studio and graduated from The Alberta Ballet School and The University of Calgary with a degree in Fine Arts and Kinesiology.
Andrea was not a natural performer and found herself more interested in the Therapeutic side of movement. Naturally she gravitated to Yoga. She first started practicing at Octopus Garden Yoga Centre in Toronto, where she took over 500 hours of Teacher Training & Personal Development. Most recently, she has completed training in Mat Pilates. Andrea continues to study and explore different styles and approaches to movement and teaching.
Students can expect an empathetic, lighthearted, explorative approach to the practice, helping to build greater body awareness and develop deeper connections within.
