Everything in Andrew’s life has led him to creating the One Tiger Yoga community. He began practicing yoga in the 1990’s and in 2008 he received his Ashtanga yoga certification under Caroline Klebl in Bali. Shortly thereafter, Andrew decided he wanted to share his love of Bikram Yoga and graduated from the intensive Spring 2009 training in Palm Springs, California.
By 2010, his vision to build a vibrant and healthy community of yogis became a reality when One Tiger opened its doors. Over the years, Andrew has continued his yoga studies within the Ghosh Lineage of Hatha yoga, attending workshops with Senior Bikram Teachers around the world. He is also a Certified Instructor of the MastersCore+ Training by Tony Sanchez. Tony is one of the Hatha world’s most senior and respected teachers.
