"Andrea organized and taught a beautiful Bachelorette weekend Yoga class for 14 of my close friends in Carmel Valley this past fall. She is a wonderful Yoga Teacher. We all arrived at very different athletic levels and Andrea made sure we each felt supported and cared for. I had not taken a Yoga class in probably five years and she made me feel comfortable and relaxed! It was the most wonderful class. I only wish I was in Carmel more often to be able to take her classes more frequently. Thank you Andrea!" Kristina Tenenbaum - The Santa Lucia Preserve Company - Carmel Valley, CA (12/19/17)
"Andrea is a phenomenal Yoga/ Fitness instructor and trainer. Her gentle spirit and warm energy exude through each and every class. From music selection to cues and overall class design, Andrea invests her time and knowledge into creating the perfect class for her students. I always leave feeling much better then when I arrive to class. Each class I learn something new that my body responds to positively. I feel fortunate to work with Andrea each weekend." - Sandra Hahamian - The Santa Lucia Preserve - Carmel Valley, CA (9/7/17)
"Andrea - Thanks again for the special Yoga classes you lead at The Preserve. It is truly one of the things I look forward to most when visiting our California escape. I leave your class feeling restored physically and mentally... like you somehow found a way to hit my "refresh" button. Of course it's hard for you to disguise or suppress your own positive attitude that is infectious." -Scott Lyon - Westroc Hospitality - Carmel Valley, CA (8/21/17)
"Andrea Woodhall is my favorite Yoga teacher in the Carmel area. In her Vinyasa Flow class we practice breathing, meditation and dynamic standing & seated poses. Her calm presence and voice help me enter a peaceful and focused mindset before I even step on the mat. I like the way she encourages me to build heat inside my body to bring power to each prana. I also appreciate that Andrea's transitions between poses are rhythmic. She truly shows me how every movement has purpose. Andrea's teaching style is empowering and attracts all different ages and levels of yogis. I would recommend Andrea if you are looking for a killer workout with a meditative twist. Xx Love this girl!" - Taylor Sharman, Carmel, CA (6/20/17)
"I leave Andrea's Restorative Yoga class feeling as if I just stepped out of the Spa." - Susan Dunwoody - The Preserve - Carmel Valley, CA (5/22/16)
"I just had the pleasure of joining early morning beach boot camp with Andrea that was phenomenal! She has great energy and is an excellent motivator and teacher. She pushed us hard and I will definitely be taking the class again." - Christopher Montellese, Monterey, CA (4/11/15)
"I have such a great time working out with Andrea. I love being outdoors and the diversity of exercises that she brought to each session. I love how Andrea includes the natural elements around us at the beach along with her equipment. I feel so comfortable working out with Andrea and love how she watches and makes sure I am doing each move correctly. I also like how she listens to what I want out of the workout and tailors each session to what I need. I have learned so much from Andrea! She really includes every type of workout to the routine. I tell everyone about her and can't wait for my next session!
"I was an athlete/gymnast at one time, years ago. Andrea has helped me find my balance again. In my 60s, I was looking for someone who would recognize my level of expertise and diagnose what I needed to tone my body safely, without injury. I have been going to 'Balanced Body Training' for 10 weeks and I love the results. Andrea gets down to the business of training with kindness. She pushes with encouragement and makes the experience of training convenient for her clients. Everyone in their 60s, owes it to themselves to regain the strength and balance that they once had, in order to prepare for healthy years to come. I broke my foot 4 years ago. I never realized how out of balance that one side was, until I started training with Andrea. You've had an injury of any kind? Andrea is your perfect fit. My only regret is that I didn't find her sooner." - Nancy E., Pet Food Express Corporate, Carmel, CA (2/15/14)
"I've thoroughly enjoyed training with Andrea for the past two years and would highly recommend her. I couldn't be more pleased with the ongoing results I gain while exercising with her"
"Exercise is a necessary outlet for me. But I have very limited time each day to do it. Finding Andrea allowed me to use my hour of exercise time in an effective way while achieving great results. I couldn't ask for a better trainer than Andrea. She is a very clear teacher who takes her time to demonstrate each exercise and makes sure I have the correct movement patterns and alignment. While instructing me, she keeps me moving the entire hour. Andrea challenges me with new workouts and always ends our sessions with gentle stretching. She answers my questions or directs me to experts when she thinks I would benefit from another opinion. I also love that I can exercise in a group with my friends!"
"Andrea helps me get a healthy start to my day. Andrea is a wonderful trainer designing exercises that are specific to my individual needs and always challenging me throughout each workout. She is understanding, patient and a great listener. As a business owner and mother, carving out time is so important to keeping me taking care of myself and thriving personally."
"In the past 5 months training with Andrea I have been feeling healthier and more energetic than ever. I enjoy the challenging workouts she designs for me and always appreciate her calm yet fun attitude. Andrea has helped me get toned post-baby and keeps me on track by pushing me hard to reach my fitness goals. She is the best!
" Andrea is a dynamic trainer who leads me through an intense full body workout every session that strengthens and tones my body where I need it most. She also takes time to thoroughly stretch me post-exercise, which is such a luxury. Andrea trains me from the comfort of my home and is a very trustworthy and punctual individual. She is currently training me for my upcoming 1/2 marathon and is making sure I get those miles under my belt! Andrea is very knowledgeable about fitness and wellness and gives me helpful advice that guides me towards healthier lifestyle habits"
"I have been working out with Andrea for just about a year now and I absolutely love the workouts she designs for me. She keeps me on my toes with something new and unique every session. Andrea has kept me in shape pre and post baby, and I am so grateful for her keeping me on track and at my ideal weight. Her positive attitude and easy-going demeanor keep me motivated and happy to be exercising!"
"I've really enjoyed training with Andrea for the past two years and would highly recommend her. I couldn't be more pleased with the ongoing results I gain while exercising with her. Andrea has helped me get fit for several important events through the years and I feel the best I have in a long time. I couldn't have done it without her positive encouragement and constant support. I will miss having her as my trainer now that she has moved to Carmel."
"I've trained with Andrea for the past two and half years and I guarantee you won't have a boring workout with her as she constantly offers different and challenging exercises. She helped me get fit for my wedding, kept me feeling healthy and supported throughout my pregnancy and now I'm feeling better than ever post-baby!"
-Sarah Kelly, Principal, Kaiser Permanente Ventures, SF (11/22/13)
"In the past 11 months training with Andrea, she has helped me work towards my fitness goals through dynamic and challenging exercises. It's great to have the support to focus on my fitness, health and nutrition."
-Kevin, SF (11/20/13)
"I've worked with Andrea for about 6 months now - and have never done the same workout twice! Mixing it up every time keeps working out with Andrea fun and effective. Every time I work out with Andrea, I feel like I am getting a tailored workout to fit my specific needs on that specific day. Whether it's a little extra stretching I need or a workout that pushes me to my edge - Andrea is great about listening to my body and choosing the right path. She is also incredibly considerate about creating a schedule that is convenient for me!"
-Sarah Scharf, Net Power & Light, SF (9/5/13)
"In the past 5 months training with Andrea, she has helped me with both increasing my strength and my endurance. I have an injury that can get in the way of many exercises. But Andrea was able to work with me to make adjustments so that I can get a good workout without re injury."
