“I started yoga several years ago with Mandy and she has steered me from a beginner up to her advanced class. She is calming and quietly encouraging, and I found myself doing asanas that I never thought possible for me.
Classes are unpressurised and unpretentious. This is real yoga for all shapes, sizes and ages and we all receive encouragement to make our own progress, without embarrassment. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses – it’s fascinating to see what we can all do, and to watch as people break through personal fears and blocks and do new things. Mandy brings that about without you realising!
Don’t think twice about trying yoga with Mandy – that’s my advice.
I was physically weak and recovering from injury when I started. With Mandy’s encouragement, yoga is now a valued part of my life.
I am flexible and feel physically resilient. It’s been a wonderful journey, and I am ever-grateful to Mandy
Ashtanga Yoga with Mandy has increased my belief in the capabilities of my body and has helped me to push myself in ways that I never had before. I feel stronger, happier and it is something that gives me peace and keeps me in the moment. Mandy’s teaching style is clear, friendly and great for any ability.
I knew absolutely nothing about Yoga before I started over a year ago, but now I am developing my practice with Mandy, as well as independently, with confidence. When I am at my most stressed, coming to class helps me to bring things back into balance and find calm. Thank you Mandy!
At first I found the class really challenging, butmyow by body has really opened up, my highlight is being able theadstands.ands.
Mandy is gentle and at times tells us interesting stories about yoga, I also like the music she plays.
I joined Mandy's yoga class as a beginner just over a year ago and now cannot imagine life without it! Mandy is exactly the sort of yoga teacher you would wish for - calming, passionate and approachable.
She has a vast knowledge of the history of yoga and uses this to help each student blossom to their full potential.
Thank you so much Mandy!
