"Blessed are the flexible for they shall not get bent out of shape.” This short, sweet quote would be, hands down, Andy Smith’s favorite "yoga-ism” to share in class, because it sums up life so perfectly. A married mother of five beautiful girls, Andy knows first-hand that flexibility is far more than a physical attribute. Andy credits yoga with helping her stay centered and balanced. She received her yoga teacher training and certification in 1999 from Andrea von Behren, owner of Body Language Fitness and Yoga Center. Andy also acquired her Prenatal yoga certification at the Asheville, NC Yoga Center in May 2008. Andy describes her own teaching style as eclectic. A light-hearted, and playfully challenging yet compassionate spirit guides every class, so that no matter the format, all leave feeling the true essence of yoga.
