A confessed gym junkie, the dynamic aspect of the Ashtanga Yoga practice was immediately appealing to Mandy. She was The Yoga Shala’s first dedicated student, practicing with her teacher, and founder of The Yoga Shala, Denis Juelicher, in the early morning hours. Mandy soon left the gym to be able to commit to a regular traditional Ashtanga Yoga practice.
Mandy went to her first yoga class in 2001. She is now teaching and assisting at The Yoga Shala after completing Level 1 & Level 2 teacher training with Byron Yoga Centre under the guidance of John Ogilvie.
