Andrew first discovered yoga over ten years ago as a way of improving his singing and it has been an important part of his life since then. He is a certified instructor under Hart Lazer and has taken workshops and intensives with teachers such as Ramanand Patel, Chuck Miller, François Raoult, Richard Rosen, John Campbell, Mark Darby, Allison Ulan, Eugene Poku, Donna Read and Ken McLeod. He has also undergone over three hundred and fifty hours of workshops and training under the supervision of Hart Lazer. Andrew is now participating in an Advanced Teacher Training with Hart Lazer.
Influenced by both the Iyengar and Ashtanga traditions, Andrew’s approach is simple and direct. He avoids some of the more esoteric aspects of yoga in favour of a (sometimes irreverent) instructional style that uses clear details to help the student develop a better mind-body connection while acknowledging the fun and limitations of our bodies. While he keeps his classes firmly rooted in a modern context, he sees yoga in its original sense, as a preparation for meditation. Whether teaching a flow class or restoratives, this underlies all of his teachings.
