I’m an Ayurvedic health counselor, yoga and meditation teacher, and neurovascular therapist living in Madison, Wisconsin. I have been in private practice and teaching since 2000. My classes and retreats integrate Ayurvedic wisdom, meditation and a mindful approach to asana that brings attention to anatomy, optimal alignment, strength, breath, and inner awareness. This practice cultivates abounding health in body and mind while inspiring you to live a more grounded and compassionate life. I offer a variety of trainings, workshops, and retreats, both locally and abroad. I have a deep love for travel, local food, and spending time with my pitbull Lucy. I look forward to working together. Gratefully, Andrea P.S. Head over to http://andrearussell.com/about/ to get my full story!

I had a wonderful time the people were great and the food was delicious. The place itself was lovely as well as the surrounding community. Andrea is a wonderful inspirational teacher/guide. I am able to incorporate some of the things I learned there into my classrooms.
I really couldn’t have asked for a better week. The setting was beautiful, the rooms we comfortable, the food was excellent and Andrea’s program was thoughtful, fulfilling and inspiring. This was my second retreat with Andrea and I can’t wait for the next one, highly recommend!

My time in Bali was truly an experience that I will always treasure. The accommodations at the Shala Bali were very comfortable. Mind the daily removal of frogs and the water on the bathroom floor after a rain, these could be put aside as the meals, the pool, and the staff were superior. I liked too that the Shala was set away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud, nestled in the rice paddies. When describing the yoga teachings and meditation; professional and knowledgeable about the practice of yoga and its sister Ayurveda. In addition, daily meditation brought a sense of calm to my personal well-being.
I had a wonderful experience. Andrea is very knowledgeable and she cares about her clients. I loved the fact we were able to expand our knowelege on self care and a new culture..
