Andy has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga for over 10 years. He is a 3rd Series practitioner and has extensive knowledge and experience in teaching Primary, 2nd and 3rd Series asana practice in the Ashtanga method. He started his teaching through an apprenticeship with his teacher Gingi Lee at The Shala in South London. His continued personal study and practice has taken him on several visits to Mysore in India, the spiritual home of Ashtanga Yoga where he worked with both Sharath and Saraswati. Andy has also studied with John and Lucy Scott, David Swenson, Rolf and Marci Naujokat, David Keil, Dena Kingsberg, Greg Nardi and David Williams.
John and Lucy Scott remain the biggest influence on Andy’s teaching and practice completing a RYT-200 hour Teaching training course with them before completing his 500 hour certification with John in April 2016.
As a teacher and a practicing Life Coach Andy understands and respects the needs of the individual student, placing their needs at the heart of his teaching. He brings an informed and non-dogmatic approach to teaching Ashtanga whilst remaining consistent and true to the traditional method.
Andy is passionate about teaching Ashtanga in the traditional Mysore space and he draws upon his experience both as a teacher and coach to provide a supportive, nurturing and inspiring space in which he can facilitate the personal growth of his students through their practice.
