Today Patrick speaks with adventurer and friend Andrew Fraser. Andrew shares his journey of surviving the 1999 Columbine shooting and how that set him on a path to explore life in a whole new way leading him to yoga and learning to let love in. Just in time for Valentine’s day, see how love can enter our lives in the most unusual of ways.
“EACH TIME I STOOD ON TOP OF A NEW MOUNTAIN… I WAS CRAFTING A NEW SENSE OF MYSELF IN RELATION TO A MUCH BIGGER WORLD”
Andrew is a speaker, coach and storyteller. He is the Gym Director at Movement Climbing + Fitness RiNo and has been teaching yoga for nine years. When not flowing on his mat, you can find him scrambling Colorado 14ers, flying his wingsuit through the clouds and camping with his wife under the stars.
