Andrew Teufel


Andrew has been an RMT since 1992 and is the owner and founder of Applied Somatics Institute. He has worked in health care for the past 32 years, and has worked as an RN and a CCURN, before becoming an RMT, a Hanna Somatic Educator, and a Yoga Teacher. He has been a Yoga Teacher since 2002, and his training includes Somatic Yoga training with Eleanor Criswell, East to West Yoga’s 350 hour teacher training, and Red Door Yoga’s 500 hour teacher training. Andrew is passionate about sharing somatic techniques with clients and practitioners and believes people from all walks of life can benefit from somatics.

“I have personally practiced somatics since 1993, and it has helped me to work through the effects of three motor vehicle accidents, multiple shoulder dislocations, three knee surgeries, and the chronic pain stemming from these incidents.

I have been an RMT for 28 years, working with clients to treat injuries, chronic pain, stress, and for wellness. I have practiced 37,000 clinical somatic seasons with people in acute and chronic pain, and have used somatics to work with scoliosis, hip replacements, vertebra replacements, whiplash, post-surgical procedures, multiple sclerosis, and the elderly. I have taught more than 3500 public somatics classes, many of them to these same acute and chronic pain groups.”
