Coming from an athletic background, Andre grew up playing sports, developing a passion for competition. His mother took him to his first yoga class in 2010 - and from then Andre was hooked. The challenging flow was intriguing - far more physically demanding than he had expected. It was then that Andre felt calm and his senses relaxed, as he learned to find stillness and feel present in the moment. Three years later Andre enrolled in yoga teacher training at Chula Vista Yoga Center in order to deepen his practice and study. His mentor, Jano Galindo, instilled in him a passion for teaching. Inspired by him, Andre developed an all-levels, challenging, up-beat, dynamic Vinyasa style class. His goal and intention is to express that passion and gratitude for yoga and hopes that he can inspire the same in his students.
