My yoga journey started in 2020, right before the world shut down. I was looking for something to make ME happy after feeling like my body was failing me due to the many symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
I was completely hooked after my first class and continued to practice any way I could throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
A year into my practice, I decided to take my 200 hour yoga teacher training after seeing all of the many benefits I was getting through yoga–mental and physical. I was excited to share what I was learning with others that might be too scared to practise because of chronic pain or other limitations.
I have one son that keeps me pretty busy and if I’m not practicing yoga, I love to go camping, I’m a pretty decent baker and cupcake decorator and I’m always on the hunt for the best breakfast sandwich in the city!

What restores you? Being from the prairies originally, I’m now a certified beach bum! You can find me on my favorite beach at any time of the year, absorbing the ocean energy that I thrive on. I feel incredibly fortunate to live where I do and I try to take full advantage of it whenever I can.
What’s a daily habit you can’t live without? BATHS! I take one, two, sometimes 3 baths a day if time allows. It’s one of the places where my body feels the best; in the scalding hot water and also where I come up with my best ideas!
Describe your silliest fear. Want to see me scream and run? Moths. Vile little creatures, they are. I know it’s completely irrational but you won’t convince me that they’re not out to get me!
You can find me online on Instagram @andrea_the_fibro_yogi and also through my website Muddy Lotus Healing and Wellness
