Mandy Cummins is a yoga teacher serving Snohomish county, Washington. For her, yoga is a path of empowerment, self-discovery & giving back, & her passion is to guide people on their own yogic paths via teaching group & partner classes, private lessons & coaching teacher trainings. Her supportive, down-to-earth & nurturing personality encourages her students to be creative on their mats, to be present in each moment & learn about the myriad of physical & mental benefits of each pose! If you are looking to start or deepen your practice, Mandy can help you find movements that work best for your body while making space for you to grow, have fun & be content.
Her in-home studios-which she opened to offer an accessible practice for every body, mind & spirit & calls "Barefoot Yoga"-are located near HarborView Park in Everett; both studios are beautiful, spacious & completely relaxing with heated floors, environmentally friendly props & inspiring artwork. Find ample parking & head downstairs, where you'll find an entryway full of props for borrowing and for purchasing, facilities to change in & interesting literature to peruse. A portion of each and every class taught at Barefoot Yoga benefits the Conservation Fund, except for special Donation Classes, which benefit specific charities.
Join her group yoga classes for connection with local yogis, try her prenatal classes if you're expecting a new family member, or schedule a 1-on-1 lesson if you'd rather have a more in-depth practice. All levels are welcome & modifications & adaptations are offered & encouraged. Mandy believes: "You are perfect & whole, exactly as you are. My goal is to help you experience poses that honor your body & let you get out of your head & just breathe, because you deserve to slow down & truly live & grow in each moment."

"Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a previous human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can." -Dalai Lama
