~ go from a human being doing yoga, to a human being yoga ~

Andrea Nacey Shares ~ I went to my first yoga class in the winter of 2005 after completing my arts degree at university. I was bartending at a Vancouver nightclub in order to pay off my student loans and to figure out my next step. I still remember the vibe, the warmth, and the nurturing welcoming when I walked into the studio ~ it was like somewhere I’ve always wanted to be…then I experiences heart opening posters and I was in LOVE.

andrea naceyI had always wanted to be a social worker as I was inspired with advocacy work throughout my high school & university days but I was discouraged with all the politics & “red tape” that social workers had to deal with in their field.

In the fall of 2006 a good friend & me decided to take our 200-hour teaching program in Southern Italy to expand our yogic knowledge & amp up our practice. We both had zero intentions of teaching, and now we are business partners creating Yin Yoga workshop & presenting internationally.

As I spent time reflecting after my first yoga teacher training I began to see the parallels between empowering people through the practice of yoga & social work. I knew in that moment that my calling & my career was to be a teacher of the yoga tradition.

Over the next 10 years I taught in many studios, continued taking different teacher trainings, and grew my community.

I started teaching at the Whistler Yogacara Studio when it opened in 2012 and that is where I met Helene Whitfield. When I was asked to join the Yogacara Teacher Training team in 2015 I was over the moon. I have had the opportunity over the last couple years to expand my leadership & teaching skills with some of the most inspired people I have ever met.
