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.

About Andrea T.

Hi Friends, I am Andrea, a mother, a grandmother, a yoga teacher, a HearthMath Certified Clinical Coach, a certified integrative medicine health coach and a jewelry designer. My background is as eclectic as my jewelry designs. I was a TV news reporter in the 80s. As I covered more environmental disasters, I became concerned about environmental issues, so I became an environmental activist. I then realized that our real hope was in the classroom teaching children, so I went back to school and got two advanced degrees in education from the University of Virginia-- an M. Ed. in Science Education, and an Ed.S. in Curriculum and Instruction. TEACHING IS MY PASSION.

I was in the classroom for 18 years, but when my mom got sick with Alzheimer's and I got sick with Hashimoto's, I left the classroom and went back to school to learn how to heal. So two more degrees-- yoga teaching and health coaching, and hundreds of students later, I teach yoga and coach health full time. I still make jewelry and I live on Heaven Lane, so my company is called Heaven Lane Healing & Creative Arts. I have been married since 1984 to my biggest supporter, Mark. I have three amazing grown-up sons, a daughter-in-law and a beautiful granddaughter named Isabela.

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.

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.

Andrea is a most wonderful yoga instructor. She makes sure that she knows her students before she starts. Andrea incorporates yoga philosophy with wellness within her instruction. She is calm and organized and provides me with exactly what I need at exactly the right moments!

Andrea is a thoughtful, careful instructor who is always learning what’s new and better in yoga to improve her student’s yoga practice. The online classes are exactly like what I’ve come to expect after being lucky enough to take Andrea’s classes in person for over 4 years. Adaptations are offered for all skill levels within the same class. This is yoga for every body.
