Yoga Bio

Andrea moves the human spirit in each of us to awaken, inspiring those around her to see themselves and their world through a lens of BEAUTY.

Andrea weaves a delicate balance of powerful connection between intimacy, spirituality and self-awareness. Her unique offerings of yoga, Reiki healing, spiritual teaching, art and writing are infused with her profound respect for the creative process.

In 2001 she graduated with a BA in Literature, Poetry, Philosophy and Eastern Religion from Pace University, New York City and in 2005 completed an Interdisciplinary MFA from the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow Scotland. She came home to New York City to pursue a career in the arts and found herself drawn towards the rich traditions of spirit wisdom and healing practice.

Yoga, Shamanism, Rajanaka Tantra, Taoist Philosophy, Meditation, Holistic Healing, Ayurveda, Eastern Medicine and the archetypal Feminine are the fabrics woven in the tapestry of her work. What Andrea offers us is vision and a practice that renews our vows to what we hold as Sacred, inviting us, with compassion and grace, to touch the deep truth of Love in our bones.

Andrea received her first Yoga Teacher certification in Anusara Yoga at Virayoga, NYC under the guidance of Zhenja La Rosa in 2007 and holds a second degree Reiki certification through the Usui System of Natural Healing. Her love for learning propels and shapes her daily practice. She cherishes the invaluable blessings of insight and bows to the many great beings who have sweetly nudged her along her path. From within the quiet folds of her heart she extends oceans of gratitude to all of her teachers including: Zhejna La Rosa, Sianna Sherman, Noah Maze, Elena Brower, Douglas Brooks, John Friend, Amy Ippoliti, Reverend Brenda Villa, Brad Teasdale, Nevine Micchan, Gabrielle Roth, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, John O’Donohue, Bjork, Mathew Barney and many more. She is currently working towards certification in the Holistic Doula Program by Matrona Midwifery under the guidance of her teacher Whapio.
