Anusara Yoga Teacher, Andrew Rivin - Interview with Meredith Sasseen
Andrew Rivin's Interview
Andrew Rivin blends a traditional athletic and business background with a great love of yoga, philosophy and psychology. His 21 years of practice, his MBA from Yale, and his experiences initiating micro-enterprises in Africa, Asia and Latin America have given him a well-rounded life perspective. You are sure to be inspired by this joyful, spirited and playful Anusara teacher.
Andrew came to the practice of yoga in 1989 after years of competitive athletics. At the age of 29 he decided that yoga was something his body sorely needed. Over the next decade Andrew developed a solid Iyengar foundation under the senior teachers of San Francisco. But then he was introduced to John Friend and Anusara yoga
For Andrew, Anusara offered a transformational shift in perspective, it infused his practice with playful joy. He spent the next several years studying closely with John and traveling the world assisting Desiree Rumbaugh
In 2003 Andrew felt that his own explorations might be of use to others. Now, in addition to being the founder of a respected international educational organization (www.globalroutes.org), Andrew is a certified Anusara Yoga instructor offering workshops in the USA, Europe and Asia.
While he still has a bit of the coach in his light, fun, vigorous and up-lifting style of teaching, it is the softer more loving and reflective nature of this man that shines through. With Andrew you’ll enjoy exploring your edge, wherever that might be, in a safe, supportive and connected community of like minded yogis.
