Ayurveda literally translates to "wisdom of life" and is over 5000 years old and at its core is a preventative healthcare system.
I specialize in helping you set up your ideal wellness routine according to the season we are in and your dosha (mind/body type).
Each season brings new challenges and my coaching programs help you align with the routines that are right for you.
You will get 1-3 habits each call to incorporate into your lifestyle that can involve,
-lifestyle habits to help you decrease stress & increase energy
-recipes that improve digestion
-movement practices that are right for you
-morning & evening routines that you look forward to doing
-helping you heal your relationship with food
-herbal support if needed
The very first coaching session we go over your in-depth Ayurvedic intake form. We discuss what your goals are, and any things that stick out to me on your form as a focus area for you to work on based on your goals.
Each session is 45 minutes, we open the session with a custom breath-work practice that is chosen for you based on your current goals. We discuss the topic you want to dive deeper with based on our Voxer or email communications in-between sessions.
Next we go over any imbalances you may be experiencing and I teach you any other practices that might benefit you over the course of your next month.
After our session, I email follow-up lovework practices that are also added to your Google Drive. These will be the practices that you will do for the next few sessions. Some weeks can be nutrition related, exercise, meditation, nature practices, or yoga nidra practices for example. We communicate via Voxer or email in between sessions to answer any questions that arise and accountability for you on your wellness journey.
After just 6 months of working with Andrea, I have lost over 25 pounds, dropped 2 dress sizes. Andrea has pushed me to be the best version of myself. She holds me accountable, but in the most supportive way. She made me feel comfortable in my own skin, even though I was (and still am) a work in progress.
Andrea is so well educated and tailors the workouts to challenge me taking my personal situation into account. She’s always changing it up and making me push myself. I also have lost 20 pounds and many inches!
After working with Andrea during pregnancy, I was able to compete and place 1st & 3rd in my first cross country ski race after I had my baby girl. She understood how to help me slow down & listen to my body during & after baby.

I've never been able to stick to a consistent workout routine until working with Andrea. I can successfully say I now love yoga, and don't mind my quick 20 minute workouts. Plus was able to lose 10 pounds.
After working with Andrea, I was able to lose 11 pounds in 2 months & still enjoy wine!"

I ended up healthier after my son was born than before pregnancy.
*You want to build a healthy lifestyle that evolves with you

*You want to be & feel healthy.
*Adjust your body image to who you are rather than trying to always adjust your body to what you believe it should look like.
*Incorporate daily mindful movement into your day. Whether it’s 10 minutes of dancing, slow and steady movement or a yoga practice.
*Make time for self-care, workouts, eating well, sleeping enough, mindfulness, making time for hobbies, learn a self-massage practice.
*You are pregnant or newly postpartum. I have extensive education in the pre/postpartum field. I have tons of resources and connections to help you safely train during pregnancy and return back to workouts after baby.
*You want to prepare for pregnancy. I recommend a 3-6 month time line to prep the body for a healthy pregnancy.
"The experience has been amazing. I’ve had incredible success both with weight loss and general health and fitness. I feel amazing, so much more energy and stamina than I used to have. I’m 37 and feel like I’m 25 again."
Learning how to Trust your intuition
Many women get off the diet & workout hamster wheel and finally find the routines that work best for them.
-Cutting out sugar
-Early, lighter dinners
-Stress reducing bedtime routines
-A workout routine they enjoy
This is one of my favorite outcomes to see. So many of my clients report they just feel better about themselves after starting a workout program with me.
They find their true why to moving their bodies and it usually is never tied to their weight. It's a beautiful process that is one of the most transformative ones.
Feel better about Yourself
Understanding how to listen to your hunger cues, what you are actually craving. For example craving sweets? Often you need a little more playfulness or sweetness in your life.
I teach you how to tap back into your inner wisdom.
I've worked with Andrea for ~10 years, Her knowledge of anatomy, psychology and her ability to adapt a wellness plan for my needs has been critical to my physical health as I've gotten older. Andrea is experienced and knowledgeable. Her approach is holistic, her focus on long term results and helping people make positive lasting changes.
After working with Andrea, I was able to treat my debilitating heartburn naturally, no medications or doctor appointments needed. I've been able to stick with a consistent workout program for the first time in my life and I healed my diastasis recti.
I wanted to stay active and healthy through my pregnancy, and I knew I needed to adapt my fitness routine to ensure I was focusing on the right movements and performing them safely. To say Andrea changed my life wouldn't be giving her enough credit. I've worked with my fair share of trainers before, but none of them would've had any idea what to do during and after pregnancy. Ladies, don't underestimate the value of working with a trainer who knows female bodies. Pregnant or not, I'd recommend Andrea to anyone looking to get fit and add challenging, customized workouts to their fitness repertoire.
Working with Andrea has been phenomenal and life changing. I now view exercise and nutrition in a whole different way. For the first time I saw changes in my body that I had been trying to make happen for years on my own. Working with Andrea gave me the results I needed. She is very positive, upbeat and encouraging. I do and will recommend Andrea to everyone!
The workouts always include a nice variety and her linked videos help me keep on track when I am not in front of her. She seems to have a sense of just how much I can take, which makes it easier to complete the workouts she sets up for me. I've also lost 20 pounds!

Why I love coaching Ayurvedic techniques?
I have found since I started living seasonally my health and awareness of my body started to shift. I started having lasting energy, better digestion and consistent routines. At its core Ayurveda is a seasonal medicine system.
