Mandy started her yoga practice in the late 90s, when the focus of yoga was primarily a ‘workout.’ After years of practice, study and exploration, she fell in love the spiritual practice of yoga as well as the physical healing it offers. As a psychotherapist, she is always exploring the mind-body connection as a way to heal and pursue a more joyful, balanced, fulfilling life. Although she has trained in and appreciates all schools of yoga, the practice that most effectively targets psychological awareness, healing and physical relief, has been kundalini, the yoga of awareness. It’s a practice that profoundly effects the nervous system; toning, soothing, strengthening and renewing for greater resilience in these complicated times. This power has led her to a devoted practice and study to further her own health exploration, and as a means to deliver the teachings to her clients, loved ones and friends. This is her mission and purpose in life.

He strives to live by Yogi Bhajan’s advice: “if you want to master something, teach it.”
