Hi, I’m Andrea, founder of Yoga and Travel.
I am a Toronto-based Yoga Alliance RYT with a strong dance background. I am passionate about yoga and creating a balanced lifestyle.
My introduction to yoga came while searching to fill a void after retiring from a childhood of competitive dance. After trying a variety of movement and fitness classes, I happened to come upon yoga and it was love at first breath. My initial intention was to use yoga solely for the purpose of physical exercise but after years of dedicated practice, I have become a strong proponent of it’s ability to bring deep balance to both mind and body. For me yoga has become, not just my go to for physical exercise, but my personal survival kit in a world filled with constant distractions.
A life of vigorous travel throughout North America has blessed me with the good fortune of studying and training with some of the best of the best yoga mentors in Portland, Maine, Toronto, (Canada), Cleveland, Ohio, and Austin, Texas. I’ve drawn knowledge and skill from each of these teachers, which I passionately and openly share. I began my teaching career in my hometown, Toronto at Yogaspace, one of Canada’s oldest and most established yoga studios.
Through my travels, I have been able to experience a wide variety of yoga styles and studios. My goal here is to share my experiences and help others find the perfect yoga studios for them, while on the road. Honesty and transparency is what you will see throughout this page. In addition to my personal recommendations for yoga studios, you will also see some of my recent yoga findings. Yoga is forever evolving in the western society and each studio has a different style. Props or no props, mirrors or no mirrors, traditional or modern, you will get the run down here. We will also touch on whole food recipes to keep yourself from jumping off that health bandwagon while on the road. It is very easy to eat garbage when constantly traveling. So stay tuned for the guide to yoga and travel!
– Enjoy and Namaste xo
