Trainers and Course Facilitators:

Andrea McKenna (RYT 500, RPYT, RCYT)

Andrea, a registered Yoga Alliance instructor, has been practicing yoga for 15+ years and has 12 years professional experience teaching yoga to adults and children of all levels. A former competitive athlete and professional fitness instructor, Andrea discovered the benefits of Hatha, Ashtanga, Bikram and Restorative yoga while training for international and national select-side rugby in the United States.

Making the mind-body connection helped her elevate her game performance, support injury recovery and prevention, as well as maintain general training and conditioning. Yoga also improved her mental health, a huge benefit which Andrea seeks to share with yogis of all backgrounds.

As she moved on from competitive sports and became a Mommy to baby Georgia Grace in 2012,  Andrea sought to expand her yoga experience to include a variety of levels, from beginner to advanced and from children to older practitioners, including practices that feature prenatal yoga for new Mommies and Mommies-to-be.

Andrea has completed Levels 1-5 of training through YogaFit in the United States over the past 10 years. In 2013, she completed the 200-hour Ashtanga Primary Series Teacher Training, as well as Kids Yoga Teacher Training and Pre- and Post-Natal Teacher Training, through Tirisula Yoga in Singapore. Andrea currently teaches Hatha, Ashtanga, Kids and Prenatal Yoga classes.
