Mandi's Teaching Philosophy
As your guide, my intuitive teachings offer space for you to explore the depths of your practice, get creative and be empowered. Nothing is off limits: whether you spend class in child’s pose or expanding shapes into inversions, binds and arm balances.
My promise is to be vulnerable and real with you, continually weaving in my own spiritual insights in an authentic way. Teaching from the heart, I invite you to open yours and embrace your innate inner wisdom. By facilitating energetic awakening, I encourage you to turn inward, activate your chakras and reach new layers of consciousness. Through deep breaths, intentional movements and mindful meditations, you will align you with your true Self and ignite what lights your soul on fire.
Spring Equinox Release Ritual & Manifestation Meditation
“Sadhguru explains how in the yogic tradition, the equinox is seen as a day when one has the best possibility of transcending the limitations and compulsions of one’s physical longings.”
Spring cleaning need not be limited to physical items. Through rituals of release, we can create space for spiritual growth. On the day when darkness and light align, join in community as we embrace our darkness and release what no longer serves our highest good. Then, turn toward the light as you envision what you want to call into this new season.
During this 90 minute Spring Equinox Ceremony, we will create an altar and use oracle cards, fire, chanting, breath, meditation and movement to sow our spiritual gardens and plant new seeds.
Nothing is off limits, and everything is possible. You can expect to leave feeling more aligned with your life’s true purpose and more connected to your higher self.
Option to enhance your practice: Bring sacred items to support you through your journey (crystals, totems, etc.) and a journal to reflect on your experience.
Duration is 90 min.
Price is $55 (or $111 for all three workshops)
Blissful Breathwork: Candlelight Pranayama for the Chakras
Ground, center, open your heart and connect with higher consciousness as you practice Pranayama (breathwork) that will awaken your chakras and soothe your soul. Strategically sequenced, this combination of breathing techniques invites a more harmonious flow between your energy centers.
During this experience, you will explore anywhere from 5-7 different yogic breathing techniques, each with their own unique healing benefits. Beginning with light movement and ending with an extended savasana complete with sound healing, you will emerge from this practice feeling more peaceful, grounded, grateful, relaxed and aligned.
After all, breathwork is proven to help:
- Unite your body and mind
- Balance your nervous system
- Energize and empower you
- Create a calm meditative state
- Awaken your authentic Self
- Promote presence, awareness and inner peace
- And so much more!
Option to enhance your practice: Bring sacred items to support you through your breathwork journey (crystals, totems, etc.) and a journal to reflect on your experience.
Duration is 75 min.
Price is $44 (or $111 for all three workshops)
Jungle Bathing: Return to Your Roots & Become One With Nature
Somewhere along the road we forgot: we are a part of nature, and nature is within us. We don’t have to wait for Death to return to the Earth: we can start now.
During this 75-minute nature immersion, you will slowly and silently saunter through the jungle, inviting all of your senses to awaken. Embrace your childlike sense of wonder as you stop to feel the velvet texture of a flower petal, smell the sap of a tree, taste the rainwater from a blade of grass. Look up, down and all around. Stop to admire and witness. Breathe with the wind and the trees. See everything as if it is brand new.
Then, close your eyes and turn into your sixth sense that lives at the third eye: your inner wisdom. The part of you that has always known: You are Nature. Through our roots, we are all connected. We are one.
Inspired by the Japanese healing modality Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing), this experience includes a walking meditation that is accessible for most ability levels as well as an assortment of nature-based meditations and breathing practices.
You will emerge from this experience feeling more connected to Mother Earth and moreopen to receiving her support.
Duration is 75 min.
Price is $44 (or $111 for all three workshops)
