Andréa Borrero is an E-RYT 500 hour Certified Yoga Instructor, with over 2000+ hours of training. Her strong athletic flow combines the principals of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Power Yoga, and Thai Yoga bodywork; emphasizing strength, intention, meditation and focused breath.
She first started practicing in 1997 at Integral Yoga in downtown Manhattan and fell in love with yoga from the first moment she took class: the breath, the bliss, the feeling of SPACE around her. Andréa knew she wanted to teach yoga halfway thru her 200-hour teacher training. She quote, "...Got the bug and wanted to share." Andréa decided to get certified in 2007 as she contemplated her next life move...little did she know she had just begun a journey that has now turned into a career.
Andréa received both her 200-hour (2007) and 300-hour (2008) certification from New York Yoga under the guidance of Kristin Leal. In addition, she's completed teacher trainings with David Swenson, Shiva Rea, Jill Miller, Scott Harig, Yogi Charu and Maty Ezraty. She is passionate about the innate body intelligence we all possess and anatomy as a means of connecting deeper to our own personal journey. She brings an ever-expanding knowledge of bodywork and physiology to her classes and private sessions, specializing in Thai Yoga Bodywork and Marma Point Therapy. Andrea is also a Certified Personal Trainer, through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine,) and currently finishing up her Herbalism and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach certifications, as well.
She is currently the Program Director of Teacher Trainings, Workshops & Special Events at
Pure Yoga in New York City.
