Movement, Mindfulness & Mother nature

Hi, I'm
Andrea Claassen.

A lifelong student of ayurveda

My Quick Bio 
I'm an Ayurvedic Practitioner, 500 hr Yoga Teacher & Author. I'm also a wife, and a mama to an active 6 year old boy. I've been working in the wellness industry since 2007.

My mission is to help you start to live a cyclical life by living in alignment with your natural flow.  

In 2012 I started an in-home personal training business- SaFire Training. 

In 2012, I was stressed out, fatigued, and throwing up on a weekly basis (due to stress).  I was burnt out.

I'm a type A woman who gets a lot of stuff done (heck at that time I wasn't even married or a mom yet).

I knew if I went down that path for many more years I was going to be sick, tired & have no clue who I was anymore. I was starting to lose my sense of fun as I always had to be "on" to get the job done. In my mind I was the only one who could do it right.

I thought running my own business would do the trick all of my stress and fatigue would go away. Cue the laughter now.


Ayurveda taught me how to slow down, tune in & connect with my own inner wisdom. 

I knew this system could help others so I started introducing it with my personal training clients.

Personally Ayurveda helped me heal after having my son, it helped me find a wellness system that made sense and helped so many of my clients learn how to find lasting results. 


That's when I stumbled upon this system called Ayurveda, in the jungles of Costa Rica.

My yoga teacher Rachel told me I was a pitta which forever shifted the course of my life and business. 

Why I started focusing on period health... 

If you told me 8 years ago I would be talking about periods, I would have thought you were joking. I was the girl who had her mom buy her pads into her mid-20's. 

Since feeling a nudge to explore, research, and live my life according to my cycle, and seeing results I felt the calling to share this wisdom with more women.

Women, who might also be a little shy about talking about their periods but are intrigued by what it can do for them. This has shifted my life's work in profound ways and I cannot wait to show you how you can start to transform your own life. 





I'm very much East Meets West in my approach. 

My focus is on women's health. 

It's time to learn about our bodies 5th vital sign, the period. 

I had previously felt like Ayurvedic was daunting and slightly un-relatable, although I was always very interested in the topic.

Andrea effortlessly took big Ayurvedic concepts and broke them down into relatable simple, actionable items that allowed me to reap the benefits of seasonal living, while also being able to dive deeper if I desired.

I absolutely recommend taking this course if you're interested at all in feeling more peaceful, grounded and connected with the Universe, especially if you're feeling more ungrounded and disconnected than ever.

"The Seasonal Living Collective was everything
I asked for, and much, much more."

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda translates to wisdom of life. It is a holistic wellness system that combines mind, body & soul into its seasonal practices. Practicing Ayurveda helps you uncover new layers of yourself to help you realize your full potential. It truly is an all encompassing way of life. 

Ayurveda originated in India over 5000 years ago. The sacred practices have stood the test of time and even made there way into mainstream wellness programs- intermittent fasting, tongue scraping, neti pot, living with the seasons. 

"I'm more in tune with my body & now understand what it means to listen to my body since studying Ayurveda with Andrea."

Andrea is a mix of big sister and wise Ayurvedic Goddess wrapped into one. Over the past four months, I have been able to undergo a transformation of mind, body, and spirit, learning and exposing myself to a new body of thinking, and way of being. I have gained tools that will better my life in the long term, and through eating and new ways of being, I was able to normalize my thyroid, getting off of the medicine I was taking. She’s incredibly supportive, full of wisdom, powerful resources, and being on your team. Thank you for the wonderful experience, Andrea!
