Mandy opened Cadence Yoga with a few intentions: to help others begin to "live the practice," to aid in the revitalization of midtown Oklahoma City and to participate in the development of a supportive community. In addition to Cadence Yoga, Mandy leads various international yoga retreats and workshops throughout the year to inspire others to "live the practice." A dance teacher since 1998 and a yoga teacher since 2008, Mandy received her ERYT-200hr certification with CorePower Yoga while living in Chicago. It was through her background as a professional dancer that Mandy was introduced to yoga. Currently, she is pursuing her RYT-500hr certification with internationally celebrated yoga teacher, Tiffany Cruikshank. Mandy recently traveled to India for a month of training and exploration, returning to Oklahoma City with more knowledge and spirit than before. She was featured in Benchmark Publishing Group's book, "Is Yoga For Everyone?" Mandy is known for her playful teaching style that includes a strong focus of anatomical guidance. When off her mat, Mandy loves to dance, read, travel and hug. "A life that reflects your convictions is a true sign of one who has lived the practice."
