Mindful Moment: Arising/Descending
About the Author: Andrea O'Connor
With 20 years’ experience teaching, Andrea’s classes offer yoga and Specialty Fitness to combine relaxation, strength and cardio, fun, and mindfulness. All in an hour! Andrea teaches and practices that being present is better than doing to distract from the present. And that being naturally leads to a lot of fun, effective and helpful doing! She has done Kripalu, Bikram, Ashtanga, and is a certified teacher in Anusara Yoga. She is certified in the Gyrotonic Movement System and has studied Postural Restoration Physical Therapy. She has a daily mindfulness practice, studies monthly with Har Prakash Khalsa, is a mindfulness guide, and does seven-day silent retreats with Shinzen Young at least annually. She loves her family (Bill! – his students and sailing crew love him, but she loves him MORE!) and their dog. She will swim, garden, sail, walk, cook, feed the birds, visit with friends and family. She enjoys and shares the Gonna Feel Good of life in any way she can.
