Andrea is the Producer & Host of The Creative Impostor Podcast, a show all about how to take bold action in your life and work, despite the little voice in your head that says, “Who do you think you are? You can’t do THAT!”
She is also a Meditation & Mindfulness facilitator for startup companies & creative individuals and the Founder of Peace & Play Yoga for kids and grownups alike. Andreas’s classes and workshops integrate her background in music, theatre and creativity to engage students in a playful experience of peaceful practices.
In private sessions, she invokes therapeutic yoga and bodywork, Reiki, voice & mantra and the practice of yoga nidra into private sessions and has worked with everyone from total beginners, to babies, to women in developing countries, to celebrities like actress Diane Lane.
Andrea has been a featured speaker and trainer for The Yogipreneur, CRAVE, Soul Love Fest, About Women, and the Women in Travel Summit.
Most importantly, Andrea loves singing kirtan (musical meditation) as much as humanly possible. And in fact one of her mentors has a studio in NOLA where we can practice yoga & enjoy some music.
