About us

Andrea began her career working for several companies in Hungary and Germany. In 2000, she started her own business in International Forwarding and Logistics. Despite her success, Andrea felt that something was still missing in life. She began to take courses in alternative subjects like parapsychology, astrology, numerology, transpersonal psychology, and energy work, hoping to gain some insights. In 2004, she finished a 3 year course in parapsychology and breathing therapy and began working as a rebirthing facilitator.

During her first trip to India in 2005, Andrea fell in love with the country and ashram life and found a deep connection with Yoga. This produced an intense inner transformation which affected her way of thinking and perceiving the world around her. The following year she traveled several times to India to practice meditation and Yoga, as well as learn about Ayurveda.

In 2007, Andrea heard about Agama Yoga from her good friend and Agama teacher Eva. She finished the First Level Intensive Course in Budapest and subsequently attended a Tantra 1 Workshop in 2008, which sparked a deep desire in her to learn more about Tantra and Yoga. A few months later, she visited Agama Yoga Thailand to gain a better understanding of this Yoga system. She was very impressed by the knowledge of Swami Vivekananda and the Yogic community and decided to join the Agama Teacher Training Course in 2010.

After the TTC, Andrea immediately began teaching in Hungary. Along with her fellow Hungarian teachers, she organized the first Tantra Festival in Budapest in 2010 featuring Swami and Sahajananda. She teaches in Hungarian and English.

Spending time with her teachers helped her to finalize a decision to move to Koh Phangan, where she has lived since January 2011, continuing her Yoga studies at Agama Yoga Thailand and doing healing work in rebirthing therapy through the Amrita Healing Center.
