Welcome to Barefoot Yoga's website! My name is Mandy, & I am a yoga teacher serving Snohomish County in the beautiful state of Washington. For me, yoga has always been a way to feel like my best self mentally & physically. I love the reminder on my yoga mat to slow down & enjoy life, to let go of judgment & negativity & to make room for love & santosha (Sanskrit for being content, feeling like "everything is as it should be"). I am first & foremost a student of yoga, but I also am honored with the opportunity to teach my passion, which I am grateful for every day. If we haven't met just yet, here is a little information about me: I absolutely love my golden retriever Barkley, my family, reading, running & being surrounded by nature. I also love showing people from all walks of life that feeling better through yoga is very possible & can be enjoyable. After spending 4 years in sunny Southern California practicing & teaching yoga, I am beyond excited that my dream of having an in-home yoga studio that is beautiful, professional & relaxing has become a reality!
I call it "Barefoot Yoga" & hope that when you practice with me, you'll learn about yoga & poses in an accessible & easy-to-understand way, you'll feel accepted as there is no judgement, & you'll feel comfortable in your own skin, whether that is barefoot or not (some people practice in socks and/or shoes, and that's always ok). I work towards helping people of all shapes & sizes feel better physically & mentally through deepening (or beginning) their yoga practice. I focus on alignment to ensure safety, explanations to educate so yogis know why they’re moving into each pose, and the simple act of being present in each moment. Within each class, I aim to offer opportunities to lengthen & strengthen all major muscle groups, activate all major joints & internal systems & practice internal & external balance. Join me this week for a Drop-In Class that is friendly for all levels & individualized for your needs.
Whether you’re looking for a private instruction to really deepen or begin your practice (I work with athletes, busy moms, those recovering from injuries, those with disabilities, pregnant women & seniors), a Drop-In Class to make connections & practice with other local yogis, or a space to practice yoga and meet other moms-to-be, there’s an affordable & individualized yoga practice that fits your needs here at Barefoot Yoga! Stop by before or after a scheduled class, or e-mail me for a private lesson & tour. We are open 10 minutes before & 10 minutes after every scheduled class. Visit the "Summer Schedule" page for all the info & schedule, and the "Private Instruction" page for the details regarding private instruction.
I invite & encourage you to add this calming, challenging & rewarding practice into your life & practice with me this week! Also, for fun tips, reviews & yoga poses, scroll down to "like" the Barefoot Yoga Facebook page, follow the Barefoot Yoga Blog & receive the Barefoot Yoga Monthly Newsletter.
