The process of studying, searching, and understanding YOGA, yes, YOGA in big words, with Andrea Brook became one of the most exciting things I have ever done in my life. Not only because she put into context everything I already knew, not just because she taught me the meaning and reason behind every asana in my body and soul, not because she introduced me to the complex and yet simple world of meditation, but because I understood very soon in our practices that Andrea was not only a yoga teacher, she was, is, and will always be yoga herself.

Andrea Brook is a master of life itself, with no fear to share her wisdom and her experiences. She opened my eyes and my soul to a better perception and understanding of myself and I thank her for that.

Andrea began as an Astanga Yoga practitioner and started teaching yoga in 1998, after studying in Mysore, India with the Guru of Astanga Yoga, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Andrea returned to India in 2000 to study Integral Yoga in Rishikesh, India with Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, and then continued her studies with the world renowned Thich Nhat Hahn, to deepen her practice of mindfulness meditation. Throughout the decades, she has continued to study and practice many styles of yoga including kundalini, Jivamukti, vinyasa (flow), and restorative yoga, as well as meditation and breathing techniques, with amazing teachers all over the world. Andrea’s teaching style incorporates the wealth of her experience, and the expansiveness of her studies gives her the ability to offer each student exactly what they need to support them to cultivate the lives they truly want.

Andrea has led workshops and retreats around the world including Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, the Omega Institute, the TED Conference, and festivals including Wanderlust, Burning Man, Symbiosis, the Envision Festival in Costa Rica and so many more.

As a musician and installation artist, Andrea has toured since 2001, presenting visually and sonically stunning performances and transforming architecture and natural environments into large scale musical instruments, including the Coliseum in Rome, the Space Needle in Seattle, the Temple at Burning Man and the Grand Theater in Shanghai.

In 2013, Andrea began Sonic Butterfly Productions to unite her talents. She designed her own long-string harp, Sonic Butterfly, with 26 strings that are at minimum 60ft long and expand out on each side of the performer and over the audience. The 2 resonating chambers look like butterfly wings complete with Projection or LED Light wings.

 Jeremy Dee, CEO of Corporate Realty Associate

Sonic Butterfly is based on the concept of transformation, like the butterfly, re-creating ourselves into the full expression of who we truly are with all of our beauty shining. These transformational experiences are more than performances, as they engage the audience, inviting them to be participants, allowing them to transcend limitation and inspiring their truth, their creativity, their authentic self to fly.

Sonic Butterfly is an incredible addition to festivals and events. In addition to performances, Sonic Butterfly Yoga takes you on a vibrational, rhythmic, physical, energetic and conscious journey of transformation, combining the unique teaching style of yoga teacher, Andrea Brook, with the exquisite music of Sonic Butterfly. The ascending overtones and healing harmonics of long string vibrations provide the perfect soundtrack for the yoga practice, as they transmute and sublimate one’s energy to promote physical/energetic health and creative inspiration.

Total Back Health & Yoga for Families

 Total Back Health

Andrea understands the impact of back pain on the ability to enjoy one’s life on all levels. As a teenager, her L5 vertebrae fractured and fell inward, fusing together with her sacrum, and a web of scar tissue formed throughout her back, limiting her movement and causing enormous pain. For over a decade, she avoided physical exercise turning to drugs and alcohol to manage the pain. In 1995, Andrea discovered that through the powerful practice of yoga, she could heal her back and her life. Andrea can you support you to not only improve physically, she is dedicated to your total back health by helping you to address the mental, emotional and physical habit patterns that may cause or exacerbate the pain.

Andrea Brook and her practice and approach have been life changing. In 2014. I was involved in a collision when someone ran a red light and fractured several of my vertebrae. I was partially paralyzed. Andrea has been with me from a few days after the accident helping me to envision walking again to the present- living a vital and active life with physical integrity born of spiritual and emotional growth …and miracles.

Yoga for Families

Yoga is an extraordinary practice to support families on a multitude of levels. Andrea teaches not only the physical practice, to keep everyone healthy, flexible and strong, she also introduces and encourages intention setting, focus, compassion, understanding, communication, conscious awareness, integrity, deep breathing and meditation. The classes are led in a playful manner that is as fun as it is fulfilling for the whole family.

“For many years, I had the great pleasure to perform with an amazing ensemble of musicians and artists, and I am deeply grateful to all of them. These songs are born of those collaborations and are delivered here anew in my own voice, my own expression, as a solo long-string performance that is a meditation of depth and intimacy, of my becoming… Sonic Butterfly.” ~Andrea

“Andrea has the wisdom, compassion, understanding, insight and humor of all the spiritual masters. Her ability to get to what is going on for you based on conversation and intuition and then translate that into your personal practice in that moment in order to move beyond any resistances physically, mentally and/or spiritually is a blessing. My practice with her always leaves me with such grace, openness, ease and gratitude. She is an absolute blessing to this planet and a gift to her clients. I recommend her so highly, there are no words to acknowledge my trust and faith in her private sessions.
 
Todd Simon – Cranial Sacral & Hypnotherapist
 

 

“Working with Andrea is a great experience on so many levels. Most beneficial to me is her ability to remain non-judgmental… a difficult quality to find. She is objective and can see things as they are, unfiltered. When these qualities combine with a tailor made yoga practice, the benefits are unique. Andrea helps me to gain a more clear vision of who I am. As Carl Jung would say, ‘Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.’”
Luis Castañeda – Restaurateur

 

“During the few years that I had the great privilege of studying with Andrea Brook, I believe my relationship with myself deepened on all levels: to this day, there are so many occasions, almost daily, where I am aware that some thought, philosophy, mantra, body position or smile, is directly connected with the huge learning that occurred during my Yoga sessions! I am deeply grateful for these opportunities and welcome the chance to pick up where we left off, with Andrea always able to reach inside, able to trust her instinct and offer her profound wisdom: little gems, that will allow me to understand at a new level and/or release an area that is stuck so as to be able to empty out and have a chance to refill! Namaste to all!”
Deborah Lazarow – Mother

 

“Insight is a powerful tool. Andrea took me on a journey for several years by connecting my mind with my body through yoga. I was always amazed at how we would discuss topics within my inner-world and then she would provide a sequence of postures to work on what I was feeling. I always gained insight — and after a few years, I was more flexible and advanced at yoga then I ever thought possible. She is gifted.”
Rob Tonkin – CEO and Founder at Marketing Factory Inc.

“Andrea is such a wise, intuitive and inspired woman. She does create safety in times of scary changes. She inspires honesty, patience, calmness and clarity.  It is a magical, creative and revealing process to have her as a teacher and coach. There is lightness and profound knowing without judgment in her advice. She magically transforms spaces, situations and people with her gifts. She is always in my heart as a heaven-sent, beautiful loving and  powerful artist, spirit and soul.” 
Bellé Flora – Skype Client from Italy

“I have been going to Andrea for private yoga instruction for only two months now, but I already feel worlds better.  I am recovering from half a dozen major spine surgeries and lumbar spine trauma that dates back over 20 years.  There have been points where I literally couldn’t make it out of bed, and whole months when it was difficult to leave the house.  It’s wonderful to be active again, and I can feel my body opening up more day by day.  I look forward to more work with Andrea, and I am certain that her experience and unique intuition will continue to be a valuable took in my recovery.” 
Philip J Asquith – Owner of Ojai Olive Oil

“WOW WOW WOW. I am still buzzing from the AMAZing energy and practice that was created for us over our magical weekend. I feel so very blessed to have been a part of this. Looking forward to future encounters with you all!!”
