Andrea Marcum

I’m a former gymnast originally from Santa Cruz, California. Though I’d have voted myself Least Likely To Be An Entrepreneur, I proudly opened U Studio Yoga in Los Angeles in 2006. I’m big on weaving philosophy into the asana and my recipe includes equal parts sweat and laughter too. Shape, NFL Network, Los Angeles Times, Huff Post and Self have featured me.
