Hatha, Womb Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal & Baby Yoga
Andrea teaches ‘Well Woman’ or Womb Yoga (a heart based empowering approach to yoga; for all women all ages) Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal & Baby Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra.
"My passion is to empower others to connect with their own inner wisdom, find their own personal yoga. Using compassion, creativity and authenticity, I aspire to help you create nurturing awareness to yourself and your life."
Andrea originally trained in Ashtanga Vinyasa in 2009 in Thailand which set her on her teaching career. She loves the dedication and authenticity of Ashtanga but her body sometimes didn’t agree especially at certain times of the month. She saw this in many female students too.
After training in London with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli in ‘Postnatal and baby yoga’, Andrea was awakened to the world of honouring the body she had. This was deeply profound in self acceptance and feeling rejuvenated by subtle feminine practices. Andrea has followed Uma’s work in ‘Womb Yoga’ since, training in also pregnancy and well woman yoga.
"I love guiding women through fertility, pregnancy and into motherhood as well as supporting women as they move through menopause. I feel my yoga classes and teachings fill in the gaps that many teachers don’t talk about. I work with cycle awareness to help my students discover their own inner yoga teacher, running courses teacher training, workshops, and mentoring. Now as a new mum (my baby girl, Willow was born May 2017) I understand the need for flexibility and importance of bringing yoga and self care into your life. "
Andrea loves that she is bringing womb yoga to South Africa and running the 1st and only Well Woman teacher training in South Africa, rooted in cycle awareness and vitality just for women.
"I look forward to multiple trainings, workshops and retreats around South Africa and elsewhere on the continent."
