Thanks for stopping by. I offer yoga & meditation classes, workshops & retreats, mainly in the Azores and online.
I am registered as a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals in the UK. And I have been studying and practising yoga since 1998.
Within the last 5 years or so I have been informed and influenced by other disciplines too – especially applied neuroscience, breath science, biomechanics and strength training.
As a result in 2022 I received my first Breath Body Mind ™ teaching certification and am now a Level-3 Certified teacher.
For a comprehensive list of my training please contact me.
What is practice with me like?
It depends! Although most sessions I offer emphasize inter-disciplinary movement, breath, rest and meditation. I also often include mantra, reflection and discussion. Additionally I weave this all into awareness of the cycle of the year, the moon and our own life cycles.
I teach in a non-dogmatic and playful way with an emphasis on cultivating awareness and self-responsibility.
Mandy is an inspiring and creative teacher. The variety and depth of her teaching means there is always something new to discover, and her guidance and encouragement to be playful, to be free to adapt and recognise what is right for each of us individually has helped me to be more confident in heart/mind/body. Although not a feature of her online offerings I remember from live workshops in the past that she also makes really good cakes!Judith, England
Yoga on and off the mat
I’m based in Santa Maria, Azores with my husband, daughter, various animals and lots of plants! We moved here in 2011 to change our way of life after reawakening to our ecological reality a few years prior. Thus we yurt live, mainly off grid and grow food and wood etc. Our beautiful daughter was born at home in 2016.
