Andrea Chaves - E-RYT 200, YACEP

Andrea first found yoga 18 years ago. Fascinated by the dancelike flow between poses (body movement is natural to her Latina roots), and the state of joy, peace and total freedom that she was left with after each class, she went thru her first 200 Hr Yoga Teacher Training (One Yoga Planet in Ft Pierce, FL under the guidance of Margarida Tree) just out of curiosity, to have a deeper understanding of this ancient practice.

Two years later and after consistent self-practice she went through a second 200 Hr training (Infinite Yoga in San Diego, CA under the guidance of Dana Rae Paré) this time with the clear purpose of teaching. Both trainings were Ashtanga based (the Eight Limbs of Yoga) where we learn not only the postures (āsana), but also the ethical rules, breathing techniques and meditation. She is also certified in Restorative Yoga (under Judith Lasater) She has been teaching for the past 12 years (and loving it!) and is currently working through her 500 Hr Teacher Training @ Pose by Pose Yoga in Lutz, FL under the guidance of Jennifer Leavy.

In Andrea’s classes you will enjoy a healthy mix of Flow, Power, Gentle and Restorative yoga, focusing on alignment and breath synchronized movement. You will feel challenged at your own pace and pampered all at the same time, leaving you energized and blissful.
