A fully qualified yoga teacher and yoga therapist for menopause treatment
Andrea grew up in Prague and has always had a keen interest in exercise and fitness. She has a background in international development and has spent many years managing development projects in Africa. She still spends much time there. She had been practising yoga for more than ten years when she decided to channel her energies into becoming a yoga teacher. She is a fully qualified and registered to teach; yoga, pregnancy yoga, hormone yoga therapy, and diabetes hormone yoga therapy.
Andrea was certified as a hormone yoga therapist in June 2016 after successfully finishing a HYT training course with Dinah Rodrigues in Prague. Dinah Rodrigues is the founder ot this technique and the only teacher who can certify students to become teachers. Her courses are taught mainly in the USA, Germany and Czech republic so the technique is very well known in those countries. Hormone yoga therapy is not well known in the UK and there are only couple of teachers here. Andrea is the only hormone yoga therapy teacher in Bristol and the surrounding areas.
Andrea started teaching HYT workshops in Bristol in September 2016. Women who have been through the training, and who have continued to incorporate the exercise in their weekly lives, have found it very beneficial. They appreciate that there is a natural alternative/ complimentary therapy to medical treatment in managing symptoms of menopase.
Dinah Rodrigues also established a special sequence for treating diabetes. It is well recognised that exercise is a very important way to control and improve diabetes. This yoga therapy is an alternative way for diabetic patients to incorporate regular exercise into their lives to the benefit of their disease management. Andrea attended Dinah Rodrigues's diabetes yoga teacher training in June 2017 ans is now a fully qualified hormone yoga therapist for diabetes treatment.
