The Lotus is the anchor point for A-YOGA as it symbolises purity of the body, speech, and mind as while rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire.
It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals and water is symbolic of the mental cleansing one achieves by the study of Yoga and meditation. This is representative in the high level wellbeing that is achieved by the practice of Yoga.
“By doing what you love, you inspire and wake up the hearts of others”

A-YOGA BIOGRAPHY BY ANDREA COOK
My mission is to offer clear, inspiring, personalised instruction in a serene, safe, friendly and welcoming space, where students can explore and develop their own yoga practice and self-transformation.
A-YOGA practice will leave students feeling rejuvenated and inspired, open the doors to positive transformation, and ultimately bring about a calm and peaceful mind, an open and compassionate heart, and a strong feeling of self-acceptance. My teaching style, approach and voice deliver a unique individualised yoga experience.
A-YOGA A PERSONAL JOURNEY
After practicing yoga for several years, I was amazed at how transformative the practice was, and how it also alleviated the stresses of my busy working lifestyle as a wedding planner. It also helped me to achieve a much-needed personal balance. Soon, I began to explore the subject in ever more depth and practice the techniques more systematically, and it wasn’t long before I realised that I had been well and truly bitten by the yoga bug.
One of my yoga teachers, Karen Crosby, then encouraged me to start teaching because she noticed that I had the passion and drive to become a yoga teacher. I am proud to say I have now completed my Yoga Teacher Training with The British Wheel of Yoga.
For me, yoga is about health and happiness, cultivating balance, and living with your heart wide open. I think of my practice as the time to simply set aside for myself.
In my classes I teach hatha yoga. I love to combine creative sequencing, mindfulness, connection with the breath and relaxation plus a dose of inspiration to help my students deepen their practice.
YOGA IS A PERSONAL JOURNEY TOWARDS REALISING YOUR INNER SELF
Happiness, peace, love and calm already exist within you. Yoga is a personal journey towards finding the right balance that allows you to shine through, both on and off the mat. A-YOGA practice stretches and strengthens our bodies. It teaches us to move mindfully and connect with our breath, which leads us to be mindful and present in our daily tasks. It nourishes our souls, and it teaches us the freedom to be still.
