About Andrea

A little bit about me:  I started my yoga journey as a way to balance out my love of hiking and traveling, as well as a part time desk job.  I quickly realized that yoga helped me in ways I had never dreamed of!

I’ve had multiple orthopedic surgeries on feet, knees, and shoulders, and yoga has helped me rehab and keep active throughout. I also have a spine defect that will eventually require a lumbar fusion surgery. Daily yoga is how I manage my back pain. I am proof that yoga can be life-changing in incredible ways.  It allows me to keep doing the things that I love to do like hiking, backpacking, kayaking, and snow-shoeing while managing orthopedic issues and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

My yoga training and experience:
– 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate with Uplifted Yoga/Brett Larkin
–  Yin Yoga Teacher Training certificate with Yoga with Kassandra
–  Accessible Yoga certification
–  Currently in advanced 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Uplifted Yoga/Brett Larkin to be completed in early 2020
