Andrea Olatunji began teaching at Dwell in 2019 and can be found subbing vinyasa and power classes at the studio as her busy schedule allows. She and her husband Michael are blessed with four amazing children.
Andrea found yoga after attending a class at her gym in 2006 after her second child was born. She says she immediately feel in love and practiced continuously throughout her third and fourth pregnancies. She began running in 2014 and trained for her first marathon in 2015 to celebrate her next decade of life. Her yearning for yoga returned once she began practicing an athletic style of yoga, where she trained and received her 200RYT via Hot Body Yoga in 2018. Her quest is to remind women to always maintain an identity that’s unique to them – an intrinsic, God-centered identity.
When not practicing and teaching yoga, Andrea also enjoys reading, listening to podcasts and watching her children from the sidelines of the soccer fields.
Andrea was raised in Nigeria, West Africa, and she credits her upbringing with her unique advantage of being a world citizen. In addition to her yoga teacher certification, Andrea holds a Bachelor’s degree in biology and she is a Registered Respiratory Therapist and practiced many years in the NNICU.
