Private Yoga Sessions
Private Yoga sessions with Mandy are much more than just Yoga. Mandy has been teaching Yoga, and individual clients since 2008. She is a sensitive and compassionate teacher, able to employ all of the tools that Yoga has to offer toward your healing and wellness goals. Yoga is a powerful modality as it encompasses and nurtures every part of being an embodied self; the physical body, the emotional body and the intellectual body. Mandy is a teacher who can guide you through this process joyfully and competently.
In addition to strict Yoga teachings, Mandy is a science nerd. Her teachings take advantage of new research and expert voices to benefit each individual client. In addition to specialized training in bio mechanics, Mandy has committed herself to the study of pain science and the effect of the nervous system on whole health. Her study of these topics is both formal and self guided.

Mandy Ryle is a masterful teacher. She has a passion for the health and well-being of her students, which she expresses by crafting sessions that meet her student's unique needs with engaging instruction. Besides expert-level knowledge of yoga poses and practices, Mandy stays up-to-date with mindfulness research. My mother and I have had bi-monthly duo sessions with Mandy for the past year and more recently, weekly sessions. During this time, we have both seen noticeable benefits in our freedom of motion and balance. Beyond that, my mother, who has dementia, has made a connection with Mandy that has helped her maintain cognitive function. Mandy is so patient with her, meeting her where she's at and making accommodations for her to be successful and grow.
I've attended Mandy's group classes for several years because of her wide range of anatomical and scientific knowledge relating to yoga, and her ability to modify any pose for those with limited flexibility. I thought I'd try private lessons when I started experiencing persistent pain from an active job and lifestyle. She has taught me techniques that are easy to replicate at home that prevent and remedy the pain. I have learned more than just yoga, but also why and how certain actions affect the body and brain.
