Andrea first came to SKYS as a yoga student in 1995, when the school was in Barkly St, St Kilda. Soon after, the school moved to its current location in Acland St. SKYS had doubled in size, with 2 large rooms, and was growing all the time, so Andrea started helping out with some of the administration work in the office. Eventually she started taking care of the day-to-day running of the school, especially in the last 10 years.
In 2000, Andrea attended, for 3 years, the teacher training program at SKYS with Simon Marrocco, the director of the school. This was to develop her understanding of Iyengar Yoga and deepen her practice. She has been practising Iyengar yoga at SKYS and attending classes for the last 20 years, mostly with Simon, and also with many of the other teachers at the school.
