Andrea is passionate about helping people live their best life and sharing with others how yoga has transformed her life.  Yoga empowers her to keep doing the things that she loves to do while managing life-long orthopedic issues and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  She loves to be outdoors: hiking, backpacking, kayaking, and snow-shoeing. Practicing yoga is what allows her to continue doing those things.

Andrea has had chronic knee pain since she was 16, and multiple orthopedic surgeries on feet, knees, and shoulders. She also has a lumbar spine defect that will eventually require a low back surgical fusion.  She manages her chronic pain with daily yoga.  There are some yoga poses that her knees, shoulders, and low back don't like to do -- and that's OK -- yoga has taught her how to safely move, stretch, and strengthen her body without compromising joints.​  She uses these concepts in her classes to make yoga accessible for everyone.

She teaches in-person Yoga and Stretch+Foam Roll classes at Gordon Family YMCA and Mel Korum YMCA. She will be teaching a virtual Yoga + Functional Movement class with Katrina Marie Yoga beginning in 2024.


Andrea believes in the healing power of nature, and how spending time outside helps us to mindfully see inside of ourselves. She is a Certified Mindful Outdoor Guide throug the  Kripalu School of Mindful Outdoor Leadership. She leads guided mindfulness walks both in person and virtually.
