Joined Ompractice February 2021
Andrea’s love of yoga began over 16 years ago when she began practicing DVDs to add variety to her physical exercise. Over the next several years, she enrolled in yoga classes at various studios in Columbus, OH, deepening her personal interest as she started experiencing the benefits of practice including increased strength and balance, greater self-confidence, and an overall sense of calmness.
As a Clinical Social Worker, Andrea understands the importance of the mind-body connection in general well-being and in healing from life’s challenges. She searched for ways to combine her clinical work and her interest in yoga practice to further assist her clients and then began her 200-hour yoga teacher training. Soon after that, Andrea was offered a scholarship to train with Pretzel Kids Yoga and completed the course in 2020.
Andrea currently teaches various classes for children ages 3-17 with Pretzel Kids Yoga and plans to offer additional yoga classes and events in her local community soon.
Andrea lives and works in Dayton, OH and enjoys reading, watching sports and documentaries, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. She recently introduced yoga to her 6-year-old granddaughter, who thoroughly enjoys attending classes!
