Andre has been practicing yoga since 2004. His approach is finding the balance of breath, strength and flexibility in asana practice, since the practice encompasses both the physical and the mental.

Andre’s yoga practice began in 2004 when a debilitating disease meant that he was not able to continue with his other passion, kitesurfing. The yoga acted as curative therapy, and resonated with him so strongly that in 2011 he moved to Cape Town to pursue both kitesurfing and yoga.
