Namastday Yoga believes in constant learning. Our yoga teachers have all gone through rigorous training and assessments to gain the knowledge that they have now. All Iyengar teachers are certified by the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States. They understand their responsibilities to the students and provide well rounded yoga classes.
Andrea Restivo has been practicing and studying yoga for over 15 years. It wasn't until she decided to leave corporate America behind her and follow her passion for yoga that her life was truly transformed. Yoga has been a constant savior in her life both physically and emotionally. Andrea also comes from a dance and Pilates background with about 10 years of martial arts mixed in.
Quitting corporate and having the courage to pursue teaching was both the scariest and best decision she's ever made in her life. "Without my yoga practice my life would not be as beautiful. And without my students my life would not as fulfilling. I can't imagine doing anything else!"
Andrea teaches a vinyasa style class, incorporating different styles that she has studied over the years. She loves alignment based classes, Iyengar and kundalini, and dance inspired movement, power flow, meditation and breath work.

Fundamentals through advanced. Challenging, informative, fun.
As a direct student of the late BKS Iyengar and daughter Geeta, I polish my studies in Pune, India annually since 2000. I am also grateful to have assisted in medical classes under their tutelage. I believe the discipline of practice, especially sequencing of learning, is key to freedom and enhancing one’s potential … having some fun along the way is also vital!
In addition to regular classes, I offer workshops for other persons with MS and neurological challenges.I teach in LA and worldwide. Private instruction available.
