I received my first Thai yoga experience from my sister Kim Nichols Cech in the early 1990s. Appropriately, after giving birth and raising three children along with my laborious hobbies, my body was in turmoil from holding patterns, bad posture and poor breathing habits, resulting in lower back pain, sore achy muscles and little core strength. It was my sisters understanding of unique yogic elements, counter movements and her intuitive nature that provoked and ignited a curiosity within me. While her approach was as unique as she was, I often reflect on the times she held me in support poses patiently waiting for my body’s response to the newly found open space, blood flow and rise of energy. At the end of our sessions, I could hardly lift myself from the mat feeling so grounded. I felt as if the mat and I became inseparable. The profoundness of my body opening, expanding, and lifting were all experienced in just one Thai session. Little did I know my course was set to explore, study, and engage in this fine art of Thai bodywork.
I set out on an international journey to immerse in traditional massage, and since then my education has been a journey of continuous unfolding to my authentic self, with the focus of Thai yoga massage. I have had the privilege of learning from many versatile and well seasoned teachers in Costa Rica, Thailand, Bali, France and the United States.
My approach to Thai Yoga Massage infuses many varieties and styles that have been inspired by my teachers. I bring my artistic background of visual fine arts, my love and joy for dance and movement, as well as honor for the body as one’s teacher and laboratory in which one may see and understand the universe more clearly. It is my pleasure to share with you my passion for this practice in a holistic, culturally rich, and playful way. It is my desire you will find what you have been seeking, that this work will awaken you in its own uniqueness.

Andrea has taught yoga in Knoxville for over 40 years. In the 80s she worked under the supervision of physical therapists at The Therapy Center, Inc. and was then employed by Orthopedic Associates of Knoxville at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in their physical therapy department. She helped with therapy for post-operative patients or those with chronic conditions such as back pain. This experience taught her the importance of individualized instruction even within a group setting. During her career, she has studied various kinds of Hatha Yoga receiving yoga teacher certifications.
In 1978, she was asked to teach a weekly TV series for WSJK that ran for two years throughout the state of Tennessee. Having previously received a National Board Certification for massage therapy, Andrea used this knowledge to make her yoga teaching more therapeutic and individualized, going on to combine yoga with The Cranial Sacral Therapy she learned from the nationally recognized physical therapist, Barrett Dorko. Her newest approach to yoga is Cranial Yoga. This approach uses hands-on instruction to reveal how yoga postures can give relief from joint pain due to muscle imbalance and fascial adhesions.
