Andrew was living his dream as a dancer and choreographer. Yet his career was cut short by a life-changing knee injury and serious illness in 1995. Working for Tina Turner at the time, she introduced him to the world of Spirituality and the Divine. His crisis forced him to seek a healing path, and he turned to yoga to heal his body and soul. Moreover, he fell in love with the practice and by 1999 he was teaching to packed classes.
Passionate about the healing power of group, mythology and stories, he combined his love for yoga with transpersonal healing to create transformative spaces for participants. Thus, Andrew teaches a combination of Hatha, Bhakti and Tantra Yoga. Additionally, his unique teaching style is rich in Heart and Soul, Tantric Philosophy, Inspiration, Storytelling, Mantra and the Spirit of the Divine.
Andrew also graduated from the Ikon (Phoenix) Institute of Australia in 2001, in Transpersonal Counselling, with a very clear vision that his gifts and passions were best directed in the power of group. Subsequently, Andrew has spent almost 20 years facilitating many healing groups, workshops, and retreats in Yoga, Movement, Tantra, Mythology, and Transpersonal Modalities. He has over 16 years of experience in Transpersonal Counselling and Art Therapy Techniques, 20 years of Yoga Teaching and over 25 years’ experience in the fields of Creative Arts and Dance.
His qualifications include:
- Diploma of Health in Yoga (CAE)
- Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling (Ikon Institute Of Victoria)
- Senior Level 3 Certified Yoga Instructor With The Yoga Teachers Association (YTA)
- Teaching Faculty and Assessment Co-coordinator for Academy of Yoga Learning (2003 – 2017)
- Lecturer at the Phoenix institute of Victoria and Ikon Institute (2010 – present)
