Andrea Chaves - RYT 500, 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. In 2022 she received her 500 Hr certification (Pose by Pose Yoga – Lutz, FL under the guidance of Jennifer Leavy). She is also certified in Restorative Yoga (under Judith Lasater). After teaching in other studios for the past 12 years, Andrea decided to open Beyond Poses Yoga in August 2021.

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.
