Andrew comes from a background of scientific and nutritional studies. He originally imagined to be a physicist, a pharmacist or a fitness instructor. However in 2010 when he was first introduced to yoga, he was immediately hooked. He then ventured deeper into the “philosophy” and the teachings of yoga he was amazed at how clear and well defined this psycho-spiritual scientific system was.
By 2013, Andrew was compelled to learn more – and left Canada to move into a Yoga Retreat in Cambodia. This was the big moment that changed everything. Inspiration and new truths flooded in from all angles, healings and insight that previously could never had been imagined. Reki I&II courses, psychology workshops, fasting, silence; Andrew took it all in like a sponge and it wasn’t long before he started teaching what he had learned to his fellow students.
Andrew has always had a keen attention to detail and started teaching mini asana workshops between classes to really break down the alignment and the attitude of the poses for whoever wanted to join. As a result of his high degree of aspiration he became close friends with the primary yoga teachers at the retreat and after a few months moved with them to another place in Cambodia to help them open their own Yoga Retreat – The Vagabond Temple. Here Andrew was introduced to the many faces of yoga and spirituality: Bhakti Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Tantra, Tibetan Buddhism, Shadow work, Jnana Yoga, Pranayama, the list goes on.
