Andrea grew up between Alberta and Southern Ontario running cross-country, freestyle swimming, horseback riding, and doing lots of yoga. She moved to the Island shortly after working on a Master’s program in Political Theory. Andrea has been a full-time yoga teacher since 2011. Continued learning in her field has sparked an interest in functional movement & biomechanics, pain science & the nervous system, and rehabilitation. Andrea is currently finishing her last few prerequisite courses with the goal of applying to Physiotherapy programs next year. She is excited to be a part of the Island Optimal team and is thrilled for the opportunity to gain more experience in a clinical environment!
