Movement has always been integral in Andrea’s life. From the age of 3, she began using dance and the performing arts as her form of self-expression. Although she had this outlet of performing that allowed the body to release, she was often left with anxiety from overthinking and over analyzing situations. This freedom of body and stifling of the mind made her anxious to find balance within.
When Andrea was eighteen, her mom took her to a corporate yoga class and she felt a dynamic combination of peace in my body and mind. The balance that she had been craving propelled her to learn all that she could about breath and the mind-body connection.
After a career in Los Angeles as an actor, Andrea began studying to become a Creative Arts Therapist, and has recently moved back to Indianapolis. She is certified in Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy, Vinyasa Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness, Sculpt Yoga, Pre and Postnatal Yoga and Reiki. She is currently working towards her 500 hour Yoga certificate.
Now that Andrea is a Mom, she’s using her yoga training to heal her body and mind post birth. Andrea’s goal is to create a safe space for you to challenge and connect with self in order to connect deeper with world around you.
