Andrea Russell, 500 E-RYT

About us

My hope is to inspire people to live healthier, wholehearted lives through the practices of yoga and meditation. I began practicing yoga and meditation in 1996 and have been teaching since 2000. My yoga teaching draws from the Krishnamacharya lineage, having completed teacher trainings in Alignment, Ashtanga, and Therapeutic Yoga.  I am registered with Yoga Alliance at the 500-E level.  My primary teachers are Scott Anderson and Michael Stone. My classes integrate meditation and a mindful approach to asana that brings attention to anatomy, optimal alignment, breath, and inner awareness.  This practice cultivates abounding health in body and mind while inspiring you to live a more grounded and compassionate life in harmony with the world.  If you prefer an individual or therapeutic approach, my private yoga lessons address the intricacies of adapting the practice to honor individual needs and health concerns. I am the Assistant Director and a lead instructor for Alignment Yoga’s teacher training programs. I offer a variety of trainings, workshops, and retreats, both locally and abroad. Additionally, I am a licensed massage therapist specializing in Neurovascular and Aroma Acupoint Therapy.  My studies continue with Ayurveda and Aromatherapy. I have a deep love for travel, local food, and spending time with my pitbull…
