Andres is the founder of Power Soul Yoga a dynamic, a soulful and well rounded approach into the science of Yoga. His teaching style promotes equanimity, traveling through the principles of Yoga as a therapy, empowering students to trust their own experience with sensitivity and intimacy, and merging the ancient and sacred with the contemporary. Power Soul Yoga emphasizes the most natural tools of enhancing personal and global union with the Supreme. Seeking to reestablish planetary balance and facilitating the way back into the place that we all truly belong, the sacredness of our own hearts. Andres has been an innovator creating an organic and uplifting fusion between the genuine essence of Kirtan (chanting) and contemporary rhythms. As described by iconic Kirtan leader Jai Uttal, “Andres’ Kirtan style is charged with stirring beats that help to find the way home to the great heart.” He has also been named “ The Lion of Bhakti Yoga” delivering a brave and soulful approach through his Kirtans.
