Andrea Carvalho

Journey To The Mountain Healing Arts
Enumclaw, WA
Andrea is a vibrant and passionate teacher who has experienced transformation on many levels. She has a deep love for the esoteric and finds herself deeply inspired by meditation, chanting, mantra, pranayama, tantric yogic philosophy and shamanism.

She believes that every time you roll out your mat and practice yoga you are a hero for making the time to deeply care for yourself and nurture your mind-body-spirit connection. As a student of yoga for over 20 years she has found yoga to be a positive, grounding and transformative element in her life.

Her focus of study in yoga is therapeutic and restorative. She focuses on helping her students to find their perfect pose, where they can be present in their body and create a place for healing and restoration to occur. Andrea professes, “I strive to teach people how to slow down time, to just simply be present in their body, breathing, combining breath with movement to create a profoundly transcendent experience. In her classes and private sessions, she often weaves the elements of tantric yoga philosophy, shamanism and astrology into her teachings. Additionally, she will often offer reiki healing touch to her students while they are in their restorative postures. Her highest intention is to offer her students some tools that may be useful for cultivating their higher selves and living a heart-centered life.

Her personal transformation journey truly began in 1994 when she relocated to Ashland Oregon, and began working at a mail order astrology company. It was there she began to deeply dive into the teachings of astrology and the esoteric. In 1995 she found Reiki and took her first Reiki class and began a self-study of Sivananda Yoga. She would say it was these studies that helped her through her own dark night of the soul in 2000 when she left an unfulfilling personal relationship and relocated to Portland Or to embark on an even deeper Shamanic transformation. In 2001 she found Venus Rising and the Shamanic Breathwork process. “Shamanic Breathwork changed my life. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t recall a teaching I learned in that process.” says Andrea. She was ordained a Shamanic Minister and Breathwork Facilitator in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Additionally she completed her training as a Usui and Shamanic Reiki Master in 2007.

The past decade has presented many difficult losses for her. The loss of a dream business and having to ‘restart’ from scratch, the inability to have children of her own, and the loss of both her parents. In 2012, she and her husband relocated to Enumclaw Wa to care for her dying parents. It was another ‘dark night of the soul’ experience. In addition to using her previous skills, this time she found deep nurturance through yoga, specifically at Seattle Yoga Arts and the teaching of the Tantric philosophies of non-dualistic Kashmir Shaivism. She completed her 200 hour training in yoga in 2014, and is currently enrolled in their 300 hour training program.
