From her first yoga class, Yolandrea felt an instant shift in her total awareness and considers yoga to be perfect for simultaneous nourishment of the mind, body, and spirit. She enjoys sharing her passion for yoga with others, and with her welcoming and jovial personality, she employs a holistic approach to teaching by incorporating breath awareness, physical alignment, and yogic philosophy into each class. She has attended workshops with Rodney Yee, Cyndi Lee, Jennifer Brilliant, Richard Freeman, Chris Coniaris, Hart Lazer, Shiva Rea, Tias Little, and Jim Bennitt. She has studied with Sarla Nichols since 2002, is an E-RYT 500 credentialed teacher, and has been teaching since 2004. Yolandrea has a "bionic" knee, and as a Certified Yoga Therapist, she enjoys working with others who have had injuries and knee or other joint replacements and helping them to fully benefit from their yoga practice. Private yoga therapy sessions may be scheduled at Midtown Yoga Too.
"Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured." -B.K.S. Iyengar
