Andrea Loper, MPA, M.A., E-RYT200, YACEP, is a Yoga Therapist, Group Exercise Instructor, Personal Trainer and Program Manager. I have been in the health and fitness industry since 1997 and I was first introduced to yoga in 2000 while in college. I became  "power yoga" or Vinyasa Flow style yoga instructor 2001. In 2003, I moved to Germany, where I instructed yoga, aqua aerobics and aqua therapy, pilates, and several other group exercise formats full-time. In 2004, I obtained my Personal Training Certification with the Aerobic and Fitness Association of America and began personal training on U.S.  military installations in Europe as well as working directly with some of my group fitness clients from the numerous fitness facilities. In 2008, I moved to Los Angeles, California where I pursued a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certification and continued personal training and group exercise fitness classes. I discovered Roll Model & Yoga Tune Up® after participating in several YTU classes at Equinox and enjoyed the ability to work out enduring muscular pain and tension issues within my own body. I wanted to learn how to bring this to my clients and students to help them self injuries and repair from training sessions more quickly just as I did. I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico and have regularly started teaching a Yoga Tune Up® therapy class at Sports and Wellness, Riverpoint.
