Andy VanDeusen, RYT 500, first came to yoga as a college athlete looking to improve his flexibility, core strength, and stability in both rowing and capoeira. Recognizing the powerful impact that a regular practice made on his body and mind, Andy’s passion for yoga grew. In 2015, his practice expanded from Power Vinyasa Flow to include a regular Ashtanga practice. Inspired by the rhythmic power of the Ashtanga method, Andy traveled to Mysore, India in 2016 for three months to practice with Saraswathi Jois, and plans to return.
Andy’s classes encourage students to explore personal development in mind, body, and spirit, while promoting peace and mindfulness on and off the mat. He enjoys practicing and teaching the art of hand balancing and Acro Yoga in addition to Power Vinyasa Flow and ashtanga.
Most importantly, Andy remains a student first, to help his students find a practice that best fits their lifestyle. His continued study of anatomy, through Biology and both Thai and Therapeutic Massage, enables him to teach each student in a way that is unique to their own body. Andy regularly travels around the U.S., meeting with other yogis in order to learn and expand his personal practice.
