Mandy Scotney

Yoga Teacher

With more than eight years' teaching experience, Mandy teaches intelligent and well balanced sequences. She is passionate about assisting beginners at the start of their yoga journey, and newer or more experienced students alike, will find her classes both accessible and challenging. Her intention is always to make sure you leave feeling nurtured, restored and rejuvenated - mind, body and spirit.

Mandy is a perpetual student and has completed more than 1000 hrs of teacher training incorporating a 500 Hour Level 1 and 2 Training with Byron Yoga, 100 hours "Heart of a Teacher" with Maty Ezraty, numerous 50 hour trainings with BodyMindLife, and 300 hours of Yin training from a variety of different teachers. She has had the privilege to learn from master teachers such as Maty Ezraty, Sarah Owens, Judy Krapp, John Ogilvie, Bryan Kest, Les Leventhal, Chanel Luck, Simon Park, and our very own Noelle Connolly. Mandy loves music and has studied kirtan and chanting with Dave Stringer ... so you'll experience some of that magic weaved into your physical practice in her classes from time to time.

She believes that relationships are at the heart of everything we do and, when she's not in yoga pants, Mandy is a counsellor and psychotherapist and the founder of Chirp, an organisation that exists to "hatch a community of connected humans" through workshops, events and private sessions (go to her website for more info).

Great class - Mandy has a very calming presence (even via video!) and the class was great - accessible to beginners but also enough to be a great session for people who have been going for a couple of months
