Andrew Tanner is a yoga troubadour and spiritual showman playing his part faithfully in this silly little thing we call life…
From living as a Daoist monk, to studying with Hatha masters, opening 6 yoga studios, running yoga non-profits and tech companies, this whimsical fellow can’t seem to decide if he wants to be a yogi or a yogipreneur…
At 19 he met his first guru, the Dahn-Hak master, Dahn-Woon “Energy Cloud,” who he lived and studied with for 4.5 years receiving direct mentorship in meditation, taoist yoga, energy training, and healing. During those years he had a chance to travel to Korea and spend two weeks studying with various masters at one of the temples on top of Mount Mo-ak and waking up above the clouds.
After 5 years of studying Daoist Yoga and completing his Bachelors in Religious Studies at NYU, Andrew spent the next five years studying Hatha-Raja yoga with Sri Dharma Mittra in New York City. During that time he founded the Yoga Brand Bamboomoves, and opened 5 studios across NY and NJ.
The next 10 years were spent in various Yoga non-profit and tech roles within the global yoga industry. From 2011-2013 Andrew ran the prestigious Kripalu Schools of Yoga and Ayurveda, and from 2014-2019 Andrew was honored to serve as the Chief Yoga Ambassador for Yoga Alliance, the largest standards setting body for Yoga in the US.
In 2021 Andrew moved back to his home state of Massachusetts where he lives with his wife and two children among the natural beauty of the Berkshires. He continues to teach yoga, coach and consult yoga businesses and currently is putting together the inaugural Berkshire Yoga Festival in 2024.
Andrew continues his 22 year practice of Daoist studies in the Korean Sundo lineage under Grandmaster Hyunmoon Kim.
