Andrea Franz Parks

Andrea is the owner of Toula Yoga, a licensed school and yoga teacher, advanced reiki practitioner, mindfulness meditation instructor, and mother of three.

“I think I was born to be a teacher! I constantly played teacher as a child, and whether I was teaching dance or history, teaching is what I was drawn to! After graduating from the University of Iowa in 1995, I immediately got a job teaching High School in Dubuque and also coached volleyball and cheerleading. When I started a family, I decided to raise my children full time so I quit my teaching job and also moved back to my hometown of Cedar Rapids. Since 2002 I have immersed myself into all aspects of yoga and most recently have opened my own family yoga studio, welcoming all ages and abilities to learn more about yoga. I am so ready to teach anyone who is interested in the life-long benefits of this sacred art and practice of yoga, and especially excited to team up with Erin McGuire and Cloud Nine Yoga School to teach this In-Depth Yoga Study and 200 hour yoga teacher training!”

“I want to inspire everyone who crosses my path to become more of themselves, for them to step into their unique, natural state of presence, power, and peace.”
