Andrea is a 200-hour certified yoga teacher based in New York City. Originally from Texas, Andrea deepened her yoga practice at the Yoga Yoga studio in Austin while attending college. After graduating with a bachelors in English, she pursued yoga teacher training under the guidance of Mary Richardson. Her training included expanded anatomy and physiology education with Dr. Mark Uridel. Andrea strives to balance anatomy-informed alignment cues with inquiry-based instruction to guide students inward, where they can decide how to meet the challenges presented on (and later, off) their mats. She enjoys teaching austere, dynamic flows that are supported with breath work and mindfulness. As a continuous student, she draws inspiration from the Yamas, Niyamas, and Ayurveda. She also loves to swim, make art, and take care of her cat.
