Adrea Reed

Biography:
Adrea first found yoga in her twenties, and she thought it would be a natural progression from her ballet days. She soon realized that there are some important differences between the two types of movement. In dance, the body is a tool of expression; like a painter uses a paintbrush our body is the brush. And protecting the health of the body is not the main concern which is why dancers tend to have injuries and health issues. In yoga, we focus on protecting our anatomy and increasing our health and wellness, and realizing that is what caused Adrea to fall in love with yoga. She practiced off and on for years, exploring the different types of yoga styles and learning how to incorporate mindfulness and breathing techniques into her practice. Vinyasa became her true yoga love for several years before she decided she wanted to share her love of yoga. She became a RYT-200 level Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher in the spring of 2016 after completing the Deeper Than Asana program led by master teachers Rebecca Fink and Erika Burkhalter. Since then, she has expanded her trainings by becoming certified in Yin Yoga with Melissa Christensen, Kids & Family Yoga through the Rainbow Yoga program, and Trauma-Informed Yoga with Zabie Yamasaki. Soon she will be undertaking a 300-Hour program. When not on the mat, Adrea is a full-time Senior Graphic Designer and enjoys shooting Yoga Photography, designing Malas, Meditating, spending time with her family & enjoying life lived by the beach. Her giant tabby cat, Hemingway, is often by her side. Her goal in teaching yoga is to help every student who comes to their mat find the yoga that works for them and to realize that they are enough exactly as they are right now.
