We offer the Pacific Northwest inclusive Yoga Alliance accredited teacher trainings, private lessons & in-office classes & posture/ergonomic assessments.
We teach Inclusive Yoga, which is creative, adaptive & individualized-taught to the students in the room-& safe for everyone to have a life-affirming, humanity-embracing experience.
We take inclusive to the next level-in our classes we avoid using:
Mandy teaches inclusive yoga in an empowering way, creating new sequences depending on who's in the room & what their goals are. Vinyasa, Kundalini & Hatha are fused together in an intention-setting, chakra-balancing, sutra-honoring, non-dogmatic way to elevate your experience. Mandy believes there's a beautiful, powerful space between honoring the ancient practice of yoga & creating room for levity, so she aims to create a safe space for every yogi to take charge of their own mat time. She likes to say, "I'm just a little bird making suggestions, but you are in control of this pose, this breath, this class." Get ready to be empowered.
I've always loved how we can use yoga as a tool to analyze unhealthy, unhappy patterns in our life; it's a really accessible way of understanding ourselves, others & our world, so we can live with more peace, health, love & joy. That's what drew me to yoga in the first place-the psychological aspect of it. I started meditating as a little girl to deal with anxiety, & it's been hugely helpful in managing stress as the years have gone on.
The physical practice came later-in 2010, I started taking Bikram, Power, Vinyasa, Kundalini, Yin & fell in love with the practice. I started coaching Teacher Trainings in 2014 & developed my own in 2016. 3 trainings later, our curriculum is jam-packed, our community-growing powers are ever-expanding, & I'm so grateful I can pass down what I've learned, so that others may continue the cycle.
When I'm not in the studio, I am with my Golden Retriever, outside exploring, in my garden tending to my veggies, running, cooking or reading; although lately I seem to have caught the travel bug :)
Well that's enough about me! If you haven't been to class yet, I would love to meet you. Come to class & introduce yourself. Tell me your goals & how I can help you in private or group classes. Or ask me about massage-I'll be adding that to my services very soon.
Check out the Teacher Training page if you want to do what I do for a living (it really is AMAZING). Thanks for stopping by, my friend. May you have a love-filled, peaceful day.
