OH! This was surprising and challenging and so well done. I will look for Andrea in the future and return to this class again and again.
Thank you so much.

This was my first class with Andrea and I really enjoyed it. Her calming voice , infused with laughs at just the right moments, was delightful. I appreciated her description of our arms as tent poles. It really helped me to put the pose into perspective. I look forward to more classes with Andrea.

This was my first class with Andrea - and I loved it! Clear, calm voice with great tips. Really liked the three directed breaths at shivasana at the end. Hope to see many more classes by you, Andrea!

I appreciated the clear, specific instructions for finger clawing and arm rotating to power up the shoulder. Shoulder strength and stability have always been a struggle in side plank pose. The wrist relief was so helpful, too, as well as the acknowledgement of the difficulty of the poses. Andrea is very real and down-to-earth; she is a new instructor for me. The countdowns were a bit distracting, though I understand the intention to let us know how much longer we are in a particular pose. I will do this class again and keep trying the variations of side plank!
