About

Hello! I was born and raised in Norfolk, England. Since 2011 I have been yurt living in Santa Maria, Azores with my husband, daughter, various animals and our ever growing garden.

I am registered as a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals in the UK and have been studying and practising yoga since 1998 and teaching since 2005.

My original training was with the British Wheel of Yoga in the UK (500 hours Hatha Yoga). I also have extensive study and trainings in vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, Yoga Nidra and pre and post natal yoga. 

Within the last 6 years or so I have been informed and influenced by other disciplines too – especially applied neuroscience, breath science, biomechanics and strength training.

I am very proud to be a certified Breath Body Mind ™️ Level 3 Teacher.

I am keenly interested in ongoing education. For a comprehensive list of my training please contact me.

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!

My retreat with Mandy invigorated and rekindled my commitment to daily practice and meditation. The yoga retreat provided a safe and welcoming place to explore and experience the various offerings, such as, asanas, meditation, breath and energy practices, and yoga nidra. Most of all, Mandy provided a sacred space for quiet, individual contemplation and reflection, while at the same time fostering a togetherness of spirit by providing group lunches and time to share with one another.

Mandy is one of the most authentic teachers I know. I have known and been learning with Mandy since 2016 and have worked with her online, in person 1:1 and on retreat, both as a participant and as a collaborator. Mandy has an expansive toolkit to draw from (breath, asana, meditation, sound, ritual, retreat to name a few) and has an incredible ability to see and hold you in your practice. Whether in person or online, I have always felt deeply supported by Mandy's presence. During her teaching, her verbal cues are spot on, and often invite me (also a seasoned yogi and teacher) to find something new or deepen something in my own practice. When you practice with Mandy you commit to a deeper connection to yourself. And I'm so glad I met this incredible woman and teacher and I hope you get to as well! Thank you Mandy, so grateful for you and your dedication to your students and the practice!
