About Your Teacher

Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Certification   Andrea von Behren, R.D. is the owner of Body Language since 1997. She is an A.C.E. Certified Fitness Instructor, Registered Dietitian and Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher.  Andrea’s decision to bring yoga to Body Language was driven by her personal experience with the power of yoga in her own life. After seeking medical attention from 12 doctors to treat her fibromyalgia, Andrea discovered yoga in 1997.  With continuity of practice, all her symptoms of this debilitating muscular disease have been alleviated, helping her to see that yoga was able to provide the balance she needed to offset her busy life and active fitness regimen.  Motivated by the transformation in her life, she decided to bring yoga to Body Language. She is passionate in her attempt to encourage her students to balance their fitness programs and manage the stress in their lives with the practice of yoga.
