Andreas Schwarz

Andreas teaches Vinyasa style yoga and completed his 200-hour teacher training certification in 2014 at Sacred Sounds Yoga. His decision to complete his 200-hour training was to further enhance his knowledge of the philosophy and history of yoga as well as Western anatomy in order to understand the effects and benefits of one’s asana practice on the body.

Although having no intention to teach at the time, Andreas soon recognized his passion for teaching others. He enjoys creating “safe havens” for his students in which they can learn, engage and deepen their practice. Passionate about social justice, Andreas holds an M.A. in International Relations with a focus on Human Rights.

He is currently employed at an HIV/AIDS Foundation where the mission is to end the epidemic by challenging the root social causes of the disease such as discrimination, stigmatization, poverty, and lack of health care for people living with HIV/AIDS. Andreas is grateful to all his family, friends and mentors that have encouraged and supported him throughout his journey.
