For Andrew, yoga is everywhere, existing artlessly within everything.
Andrew remembers as a young child, sitting quietly in his room, doing shoulderstand and working on breath manipulation. It did not come from a book or an outer source, this knowledge was already there.
In his mid-twenties, after several years frequenting the gym he was introduced to his first yoga class. He instantly knew he was in a place very familiar, peaceful, challenging, humbling, and like home. Since then he has never looked back. Andrew has advanced his studies and continues to do so, taking several teacher trainings. First was Classical Ashatanga and Hatha Yogas at the Salt Spring Centre of yoga. After was Power Yoga with Catherine Munroe, and his most recent, Anusara teacher training with Chris Chavez. In the last year Andrew has been fusing his yoga training with movement fundamental training. He took his FMS (Functional Movement Screening) certification, many body workshops including Movement X under Ido Portal and regular crossfit.
Andrew’s teaching is inspired by nature, people, and many different forms of energy movement. He loves the heat, fire, and challenge of Power Vinyasa, the biomechanics and the poetic theming of Anusara, the strength and the subtleties of Vijnana, the energy movement of Yoga Arts and Gung Fu, and the tradition and movement of Ashtanga.
Andrew is very honoured to be working with PULSE dance centre for another season, helping bring stability and strength to his dancers.
