I make cooking fun, easy, yummy and healthy no matter what your food restrictions!
Hi Friends, I am Andrea, a mother, a grandmother, a yoga teacher, a HearthMath Certified Trainer, and Trauma-Certified Clinical Coach, a certified integrative medicine health coach, and a chef. 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 Autoimmune Disease. I left the classroom and went back to school to learn how to heal. So several more degrees-- yoga teaching, health coaching, HeartMath, and hundreds of students later, I teach yoga and coach health full time. My passion for cooking comes from my mom. I learned how to cook with different ingredients that improved my health but still tasted yummy. I also make jewelry (a form of meditation) 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. I would love to help you on your healing journey with my compassionate, clear, caring style of teaching.

I took her class once but I know right away she is someone I want to keep taking live classes with. her teaching style is all about the body and the mind which is something I strongly believe in. its was an over all wonderful experience and i cannot wait for our next class together
I signed up with Andrea a couple months ago for yoga and health coaching. Andrea is a compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful coach. She is working with me to improve my GERD symptoms and quality of life. I struggle with weight loss, Hashimoto's disease, GERD, sleep Apnea, and hypertension. I am a mother of 6, grandmother of 2, and have 2 jobs. Since I started with Andrea, my doctor lowered my blood pressure medication, my blood work improved, and I have more energy during my day. In addition, I am learning how to destress and enjoy my life using HeartMath techniques. I look forward to my sessions. Andrea's teaching is the best investment I made so far, and I am investing in me for once!
I highly recommend Andrea Trank’s cooking lessons. Andrea helped me customize a plan for our lesson and sent me personalized instructions for what to buy and how to best prepare for the session. The session was easy to follow, and I learned a lot. Afterwards, Andrea sent me a video of our session and recipes we had made. She was a pleasure to work with. It was a great experience and I’ll be back!
