Meg is thrilled to be offering yoga classes in the Cowichan Valley after completing her certifications in Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga through OmTown, and Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga through MokSana.
Ever since attending a Spinning Babies workshop in 2017 she has been especially fascinated with how mindful movement during pregnancy can positively effect fetal positioning. She believes that the power of public prenatal and postpartum yoga classes is the ability for parents to form supportive communities for themselves, as well as the many health and wellness benefits.
As a Doula and Reiki Master she is passionate about supporting and holding space for families on their journey into parenthood and beyond. Students of all levels of experience are welcome.
Andrea is a calm and compassionate space holder for women, especially those on the journey of Motherhood. She welcomes you as you are, creating a sacred container for you to unfold within. She takes special consideration of her students energetic and emotional states, and works to bring awareness and opening.
Andrea teaches from a place of grounded feminine softness, guiding from her heart. Her classes are slow and gentle, yet fiercely empowering, serving to guide you back to your body, breath and truth. Every woman is welcome regardless of previous experience and she strives to create a sense of community.
It was 10 years ago that Andrea first called Yoga into her life. It changed her, helping her to begin to inhabit her body again and heal from a lifetime of dissociation and disordered eating. Since then, she has trained as a Yoga Therapist, pre and postnatal yoga teacher, and shamanic yoga practitioner. She is also a holistic birth and postpartum Doula.
Recently Andrea birthed Venus Rose Women's Wellness, combining sacred gemstone jewellery, yoga and birthwork to provide healing and empowerment to Women and Mama's. She honours her teachers - Nikki Manzie, Christine Selda and Ann-Kathrin Martins, giving humble thanks for the deep lessons and healing. Andrea resides freshly in the Cowichan Valley with her 5 year old daughter and their cat Rainbow and looks forward to bringing Prenatal Yoga and more to the amazing Mamas here.
