About this pro

We are the area's first Yoga and Dance Training studio.  We utilize many technical and spiritual modalities of development to enhance our student's unique experience. We train our dancers and yogis through conscious, nonviolent communication, and encourage excellence, while allowing our students and practitioners to rise to their Highest Selves in their own timing. In doing so, we create confident yet humble artisans of our dance and yoga company, who collaborate to create amazing memories, fantastic dancing and Alchemical Flow, together!

I love feeling the aesthesis that is generated among student, teacher, music, and the movement of energy throughout space!  I am thrilled when I sense how deeply my students are connecting with the movement and engaging with their most beautiful Soul-full expressions!  I love teaching chakra energy work and how opening these magical energy centeres, dispelling any low flowing energy, and healing misaligned energy can change how we present our gifts to the world!  It is a joy to yoke the experience and training I have had in my life to the widsom that yoga provides!

    "I love ya so so much and miss you more than anything! Sorry I still call you coach but you will ALWAYS be the best coach I've ever had. You're the greatest, thank you for everything I love you dearly."

    "You are the best dance coach I've had, but are also the best life coach I've ever had. You re a role model to me. I always hope that I will be able to live my life with the strength that you live yours with and to overcome anything with grace like you do. I love you so much coach."

  • Clayton R.; Sales Director

    Mandy brings a warm personality in her teaching and is one of the most approachable teachers I have encountered. She never stops smiling and more than occasionally, I hear her singing the songs being played during our yoga class. I work in a stressful environment and Mandy's classes help me keep my stress in check. It is said that the hardest part of yoga is showing up, but after a few classes with Mandy, I think you will find that showing up is a bit easier."

  • Victor; QA Analyst

    I took my first ever YOGA class with Mandy and I instantly became hooked with the practice and her style. As an instructor, she was (and still is) wonderful and very knowledgeable with each posture of the flow. Mandy took the time to help me and other individuals with different levels of experience in each session, providing alternatives for each posture, in a way that was seamless for the flow of the class. Mandy’s classes always provided a sense of calmness and peacefulness within an environment that was conducive to growth, change, and soul healing. The light within Mandy creates a calm atmosphere in the room, while at the same time energizes your senses. Mandy is not just another great yoga instructor, she is a gorgeous lovely being of light!"

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching at 18, being trained by the world's leading dance training and competition company. I taught nationawide for high school and collegiate level dancers and athletes until 2000, when I began teaching internationally. 

I have trained dancers in Paris, London, Rome, Berlin, Finland, Sweden, Australia, Ecuador, Colombia, Moscow to name a few. It is an INCREDIBLY humbling experience to teach in a country of which is not your native tongue!  I learned at a young age to teach from my heart, and anyone will learn and understand. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I tuaght a master class in Guayaquil, Ecuador which was so deeply moving!  After going through a difficult experience of my own, I poured it out onto the dance floor, and the dancers absorbed this love and let it flow throught their movement.  It was such a gift!

As a yoga teacher, the most incredible class I've taught to date was a 5:30am class in which somehow i managed to have 25 students, and my music, movement, and energy was so symbiotic that I could literally feel the energy of the room!  I finished the class singing a song for my beautiful yogis to let them know how deeply I loved them and how much their Souls affected mine.  It was the best start to my day! 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be open to experience GRACE for yourself and JOY for others!! It is a gift that is available to us All, and I am so willling to embrace each student right where they are and help them find this inner peace no matter how many tears or falls or frustrations need to be expelled to get there.  I will meet you where you are and help you when you need it. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is holding you back from moving to this new space? 

How are you choosing to show up for yourself now? 

How do you envision yourself in 3 months, 6 months 12 months?? 

What beliefs are you willing to release to know that you are going to get there??
