Andrea Chesnes

I am a Turners Falls girl teaching all over Western Mass. I’ve been teaching now for 5 years. Though having 200hrs formal training in traditional Iyengar Hatha yoga, my teaching style is an amalgamation of many. My strengths are found in the technical skills of alignment, a mindful approach to each pose, emphasis on breath work, guided mediation and a rich practice in breathing technique (pranayama).

I do my best to tailor each class to the space at hand so that every student is attended to. Practice is filled with joy and laughter for me so it easily permeates into any room. My hope is that each class gives my students the opportunity to see what it is, experience how it is, and develop a strong sense of who they are through conscious physical practice. Developing an asana practice unlocks the door to all the qualities of mindfulness one needs to begin a meditation practice. Come join me in the studio.
