Andy has been practicing Yoga for over 30 years. He first explored Yoga through a Hatha Yoga class and his exploration took him from Hatha Yoga to Iyengar Yoga before finding his Spiritual Yoga home in the Ashtanga Yoga method.
Andy has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga for over 15 years. He is a 3rd Series practitioner and has extensive knowledge and experience in teaching Primary, 2nd and 3rd Series asana practice in the Ashtanga method. He started his teaching through an apprenticeship with his teacher Gingi Lee at The Shala in South London and his continued personal study and practice has taken him on several visits to Mysore in India, the spiritual home of Ashtanga Yoga where he worked with Sharath and Saraswati. Andy has also had the privilege to work with a number of highly respected Yoga teachers including; John Scott and Lucy Crawford, Simon Borg-Olivier, David Swenson, Rolf and Marci Naujokat, David Keil, Dena Kingsberg, Greg Nardi and David Williams.
As a teacher and a practicing Life Coach Andy understands and respects the needs of the individual student, placing their needs at the heart of his teaching. He brings an informed and non-dogmatic approach to teaching Ashtanga whilst remaining consistent and true to the method.
Andy is passionate about teaching Ashtanga in the Mysore space and he draws upon his experience both as a teacher and coach to provide a supportive, nurturing and inspiring space in which he can facilitate the personal growth of his students through their practice.
