Revitalize, refresh and renew your whole being with Hatha Yoga!

our philosophy

Yoga postures are whole body movements that help you gain overall balance, strength, flexibility, alignment and focus. A regular practice can help reduce stress and leave us with a feeling of oneness of mind, body and soul.

Our philosophy is that through a well-rounded practice of yoga each student can develop a “yoga lifestyle.” This maintains using the tools and lessons learned in each class to guide us through our day to day choices. As we apply what we learn on the mat to our daily lives, we will expand our perspectives and focus, gaining greater connection to our inner-core. Ultimately, this helps to achieve an increased sense of balance and control with a healthier and more centered life.

andrea about

Andrea Kayam was raised in Belle Harbor, NY. She holds a Masters in Architecture from Columbia University and a Masters in Education from Queens College. She became a Certified Yoga Practitioner in 1995 at Yoga Spectrum founded by Diana Treglia.
Since then she continues to expand her knowledge of yoga by attending seminars, workshops and certification courses.

She has studied meditation with Jill Satterfield, founder of Vira Yoga and School for Compassionate Action in NYC. In 2002, she completed a Thai-Yoga Body Work training with Jonas Westring of Thai Yoga Healing. In 2010, she completed a teacher training in Yoga for Scoliosis and Back Care with Elise Browning Miller. In 2012 she completed a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Jillian Pransky. And most recently, in 2018, she completed a Level I Yoga Union Rope Wall Certification with Allison West.

Andrea primarily practices Iyengar yoga and integrates the benefits of its intelligent sequence progression, the creative use of yoga props, and attention to alignment in all of her sessions.

Andrea is a sensitive, knowledgeable, and compassionate teacher who loves working with people. She intuitively understands the individual needs of each student and can support them by modifying the poses, and the use of hands-on adjustments in a nurturing environment. She was drawn to yoga after years of chronic pain and through yoga has developed greater body awareness and inner strength. With a strong commitment and a regular practice she noticed that her body became more flexible as well as her thinking. As her muscles strengthened so did her inner power. Coping with daily ups and downs became more manageable.
Andreas vision is to share her passion for yoga and insights that she learns through her personal practice with each student.

What people are saying...

"I could not have imagined feeling both relaxed and invigorated at the same time until I met Andrea Kayam and began taking classes at her yogabody studio. I have taken both private and group sessions with Andrea. As an experienced teacher of yoga, she has the remarkable ability to gauge the needs of her students each time she teaches a class and to adapt the day’s practice accordingly. She urges students to challenge themselves to go farther each time, while emphasizing that there is no “perfect pose” that must be achieved. Her patience and sense of humor motivate her students to try new techniques comfortably because there is no such thing as failure. During the two years that I have worked with Andrea, I have developed more strength and flexibility and have learned to use breathing both in and out of class to control tension. I recommend yogabody to anyone who wishes to improve his or her quality of life." Linda W.
