Upon retiring from the rigorous and grueling nature of a 10-year career as a professional footballer Andre co-founded the Spirit Loft Movement & Yoga Centre, along with his wife Catalina, Toronto’s east end yoga, movement and mindfulness community. He continues to explore, research and share in a variety of embodied practice and movement disciplines including yoga, meditation, strength & mobility training, gymnastics and dance. This life-long research project has inspired Andre to share his experience and dedicated practice with others. He has been coaching, teaching and mentoring youth and adults in a variety of disciplines for nearly two decades. Andre believes that stillness and movement practices provide us the opportunity to cultivate and deepen our understanding, our sense of connection, our compassion and our well-being.
