My Teaching Philosophy

  • Almost anyone can do and benefit from yoga.
  • If pain, no gain.
  • Yoga is not a competition or a show.
  • The practice space should be a safe space.
  • Learn by asking.

Andrew is one of the best yoga teachers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. His instructions are lucid, clear, and delivered with the utmost compassion for his students and their own emerging body awareness. I felt the transformative effects of his approach after a single class. Highly recommended and with no reservations whatsoever.

I can’t say enough about Andrew Jobes. He is the most caring and genuine man. My husband and I both attend his Thursday class. We consider it our date night. Andrew took us in after years of practicing yoga the wrong way and he helped us learn to connect with our breath and how to properly feel each and every pose. The way he communicates and demonstrates his practice makes it foolproof. I have recommended Andrew’s practice to many friends and continue to do so with the utmost confidence. I find his blogs incredibly insightful and feel that sometimes everyone needs a little Andrew in their life just to bring back perspective and clarity.

I had some unpleasant Yoga experiences in the past so I was skeptical when I signed up for classes at Balance at Work. It wasn’t long before Andrew’s style and manner won me over. I knew after the first class that it was going to be a good fit. Andrew was welcoming – as were all the other people in the group. He always provides very clear step-by-step instructions, individual support and encouragement. He is approachable and a very good communicator – with I might add – a good sense of humour. One of the most exciting things for me was how quickly my strength increased over the weeks. I highly recommend the Balance At Work classes to kick start your day or de-stress at the end of a busy day.
