Bend and Zen Hot Yoga in Louisville, KY

Andy Epstein

Instructor - Power Vinyasa
200 hr RYT
Andy Epstein first discovered yoga in 2011 after being reluctantly dragged to class by a friend. A committed runner, boot-camper, and weightlifter, Andy was skeptical that yoga could ever be a “tough” workout. Lying there panting on his mat in a puddle of sweat at the end of his first hot yoga class, he realized how wrong he was! Andy quickly became a hot yoga addict, and was amazed to see his strength, flexibility, and muscle tone increase. Andy believes all aspects of yoga - the physical, psychological and spiritiual - are all an essential part of yoga for student and teacher.


Andy’s classes are taught in the same style in which he likes to practice—fast-moving, powerful, technically demanding, and fun. Having personally suffered a sports-related low back injury and subsequent surgery, Andy is convinced of the positive health benefits of yoga to help build core strength and decrease back pain. 


When not on his mat, Andy can be found performing with various local theater groups as an actor; and working at his day job as an attorney in private practice specializing in personal injury, medical malpractice, and employment discrimination cases. Andy received his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University in theater in 1996; attended the University of Louisville for law school graduating in 2004; served on active duty in the U.S. Army as a field artillery officer (1996-2001).  


He completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training with Yogaia in 2015 and a second 200-hour vinyasa-based training with Meredith Conroy at Bend & Zen in 2017.
