She currently works with clients at several Bay Area Gyrotonic studios throughout the greater Bay Area. Additionally, she is certified to teach on the following specialized Gyrotonic equipment: Jump-Stretch Board, Gyrotoner, and Archway apparatuses. As a professional dancer, bodywork practitioner, personal trainer & movement instructor, Andrea's passion for creative exploration and expression, alongside her dedication to discipline and form, have guided and shaped the development of her approach. A former ballerina with the San Francisco Ballet, she continues to dance ballet/modern professionally, currently performing with SoulSkin Dance & Metamorphosis Ballet.
Profoundly impacted by the practice of Continuum Movement, she has studied extensively for over a decade with the innovators and master teachers of this field, including the Emilie Conrad, Susan Harper, Mariane Karou, & Cass Phelps. At the core of her personal practice and all her offerings is the process of creative inquiry. Her experience with this work has inspired her to share from the heart of her own journey, and she offers exploratory movement workshops that are born from the depth of this inquiry. Andrea is also a Licensed Massage Therapist (since 2012), and enjoys offering her innovative bodywork sessions throughout the Bay Area.
"I believe that one's own innate connection with the body and ability to freely express and engage through it, is one of the most precious joys and gifts of being alive. To inspire others to actively participate in the physical frontier of their own evolution, to which there is no upper limit of growth & intricacy, is my passion and purpose in sharing movement in all it's forms." ~Andrea
