I met Andrea Brook at a dinner at my house in Los Angeles about five years ago, through a common friend of ours. At that time I had been practicing yoga about ten years. I was one of those yoga practitioners who, after several classes with instructors and yoga teachers of different kinds and levels, decided to go it alone, reading yoga books, searching all type of information and putting together a lot of data. My professional activities and the continuous traveling all around the world didn’t allow me to stick permanently with the same people for more than a few weeks. Of course I ended up creating my own routines and my own space in the vast yoga universe.
It was no more than a half an hour of conversation with Andrea that night, when I realized that I needed to grow my yoga practice and that she was the perfect person to help me do so. I still didn’t know at that time to what extent. 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.
With her, it is a way to understand life, to perceive reality, to breathe every second of your existence. She has an incredible capacity to communicate complicated concepts in relationship to the violent and confusing world in which we are all living, with love, compassion, dignity, openness, experimentation, and to ability fight from your inner self the problems and contradictions of the time in which we live. The clean spirit, the little child that she decided not to kill, as we all wrongly do, and her pure, bright smile against adversity are her weapons, and believe me they are contagious.
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.
