My mother was a gourmet cook. I have learned to modify recipes to take into consideration food sensitivities and other health needs. Healthy foods can taste good and do not need to take hours. I love to share simple strategies and tips and tricks to keep you on your healthy eating plan. I can accommodate all types of dietary restrictions.

Andrea is so very knowledgeable and helpful as well as clearly showing all different levels of poses for beginners, those with issues as well as advanced students. I really love the way she explains about the meridians, ligaments, muscles and fascia and other details which really help me understand the importance of the movements and poses. Her experience as a teacher and reporter adds to the experience and her extensive scientific and health knowledge really make me feel confident in her as an instructor. My life has been better as a direct result of these wonderful classes.
Vicky
I'd been studying in person with Andrea for about 4 years, and we've made an easy transition to online yoga classes. I especially appreciate how she mixes things up, not doing the same routines each time. She will focus on a particular body part or need for each class. And she adjusts her instructions for everyone's level of ability. Her leadership is gentle and soothing, and she fills you with confidence.
Mary
Always there to make sure that you are doing the poses the right way!!

At a birthday soiree over the February 29/March 2 weekend, I got the opportunity to sample Angelique's culinary skills
To say that I was wowed by her creativity and food presentation, will be putting it mildly! My taste buds were titillated beyond measure! I plan on having Angelique teach my 14 year old her cooking skills as well. Way to go Angie!
