Andrea Marcum

Andrea’s combination of a challenging class, and a great sense of humor are unique, intelligent, and always leave me feeling better when I leave than when I arrived. She is an amazing teacher and I love her class. — Heather Graham, actress

Andrea Marcum has been teaching yoga for nearly two decades. She founded U Studio Yoga in Los Angeles in 2006 and ran it for nine years (that’s about 100 years anywhere else). Then when yoga stretched her out into the world to teach international workshops, retreats and festivals she traded in brick and mortar for frequent flier miles, closed her studio and began teaching at Yogaworks.

Known for weaving accessible philosophy into the poses, Andrea loves leading the most unassuming newbies to yoga and mindfulness and works with everyone from athletes to executives.

Shape, NFL Network, Los Angeles Times, Huff Post, Qantas Inflight, Self, and C Magazine have featured her. Oh, and she’s been called a Rock Star & one of The Best 8 Yoga Teachers in LA. (I know…pretty obnoxious.). Andrea’s a contributing writer for lululemon, LA Yoga Magazine, Mantra Magazine, MindBodyGreen, Elephant Journal, Origin and others.

She’s excited about the release of her book Close to Om: Stretching Yoga From Your Mat to Your Life December 26, 2017 from St Martin’s Press and Macmillan Audio.

Andrea believes our yoga mats are magic carpets to look into our lives and to see the world.
