After 16 years living in Vancouver and abroad, Andrea is delighted to be back home in the Maritimes, and sharing her love of Yoga as part of the Dynamic team!
Andrea's journey to wholeness has led her to explore several styles of yoga and spiritual practice over the years, including certifications in Hatha Yoga (Yogi Vishvketu, India), Kundalini Yoga (Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, LA) and Yin Yoga (Jolene Bayda, Vancouver). She also holds a BA in Psychology, a certificate in Thai Yoga massage, is a certified birth doula, and founder of Graceful Warriors - a unique platform for women's empowerment and sisterhood connection.
Since first stepping on the mat in 2005, yoga has served as an anchor in her life, helping her to heal and find balance amidst the challenges of our fast-paced modern world. Within her classes she cultivates a supportive and uplifting environment, authentically sharing from the Heart her experience of this beautiful practice that has transformed her life so deeply.

Kundalini Yoga for Thriving in Times of Transition Series
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient, holistic yogic technology, which incorporates a blend of exercises, postures (asana), breath work (pranayama), chanting (mantra), hand gestures (mudra) and meditation to heal and align our physical, mental and energy bodies. This dynamic practice provides us with powerful tools to navigate through life transitions from a balanced mental, emotional and physical state.
In this 5-week series we will explore Yogi Bhajan's Sutras (aphorisms or guidelines) for the Aquarian Age (the new age of awakening that we are moving into now). These Sutras offer wisdom and guidance for living, loving, serving and thriving in these often tumultuous, yet exhilarating times of rapid change on our planet.
"The vibrational frequency of the planet is accelerating to the frequency of the Heart center. To harmonize with the new vibrations and maximize effects, we need a healthy body and a strong nervous system, balanced and open chakras, and a strong bright electromagnetic field - Kundalini Yoga produces all if this." ~ Yogi Bhajan
This series is open to all levels of experience with Yoga.
