AGAVE WELLNESS STUDIO
The Agave Wellness Studio story begins not too terribly long ago. While Andrea Weekly, the owner and operator of the studio, had been practicing yoga for more than 12 years, it was just over 3 years ago that she experienced first-hand just how beneficial and impactful yoga can be. When her sister-in-law passed away suddenly from a brain aneurysm leaving behind her four young kids, Andrea had a hard time coping. Sleep escaped her and anxiety plagued her; she just couldn’t find peace. Then she met a yoga instructor who offered a private class for herself and her nieces. It was the first time in two whole weeks that she was able to sleep and experience any kind of peace and happiness. She knew right then and there that she had to learn more so she could help other people find the same peace and healing. Fast forward through hundreds of hours of yoga teacher training and numerous certifications later, and Agave Wellness Studio was born.
