Andrea has been practicing yoga since 2014. In 2016, she received her RYT®200 certification from Everyone Yoga School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and in October 2017 she received her TIYT™ certification. She is currently enrolled in the Everyone Yoga School RYT®500 teacher training, and expects to complete it in the spring of 2018.
She is influenced by, and has studied with, Tulsa-area teachers Mandy Eubanks, Sonia Marshall, Stephen Saunders, Joe Picorale, Dr. Mike VanAntwerp, and Kevin Lawlor.
Andrea first tried yoga to get relief from anxiety and stress. She became a yoga teacher to provide an environment for students to reground, reconnect, and relax. After spending over twenty years in corporate environments, she understands first-hand that a busy and often sedentary workday, can affect both the body and the mind.
Corporate classes focus on gentle movement and breathing techniques, designed to relax and refresh. Poses emphasize deep stretching, flexibility, and mindfulness, and are tailored to fit the needs of the students.
Her studio classes focus on deepening the breath, increasing mindfulness, and creating space in the body. Her moderately-paced classes focus on building strength and releasing stress through Hatha-style flow, sometimes accompanied by eclectic playlists. Most classes end with several minutes of silent, seated meditation.
Always searching for the lighter side of things, she incorporates dry (like toast!) humor into classes that are designed to give her students plenty of space to make their own self-discoveries.

- Public studio classes
