Meet Mandi Garrison, BA, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP, Reiki Master, CCH
Mandi was just a child when she tried her first yoga posture and has practiced for nearly 20 years. Her dedication and commitment to a yogic life began in 2010 as a way to balance her fast-paced, career-driven lifestyle and to help relieve her anxiety. Just a couple of short years later, Central Mass Yoga & Wellness (CMYW) became her yoga home and refuge, and she has been at the studio ever since.
Mandi earned her 200-hour hatha teacher certification from CMYW and her 300-hour certification from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. She studied with many nationally renowned teachers and completed advanced teacher training programs in pranayama, meditation, yoga for special populations, advanced asana, vinyasa, and restorative yoga. In addition to formal training, she has extensively studied yin yoga, kundalini yoga, seasonal yoga, and Ayurveda. Mandi is also a certified Yoga Warriors instructor, Reiki Master Teacher, Crystal Healer, Tarot reader/diviner, and trained priestess. She is lifelong student of astrology and ancient spiritual traditions, and enjoys incorporating her studies into her teaching and workshops.
As a teacher and healer, Mandi helps others find their own sense of peace and strength through yoga, as well as the power of self-healing. Her classes provide energetic balance and a refuge from the hectic activities of daily life. Her calming and intuitive instruction is a hallmark of her teaching.
While not on her yoga mat, Mandi is an avid reader, traveler, photographer, and nature lover who can often be seen with her hiking boots deep in the woods of North Central Massachusetts or in her country home surrounded by books, crystals, and Tarot cards. You can follow her adventures and musings via her website www.mandigarrison.com, on Instagram at @yogawithmandi, or on Facebook through her page Mandi Garrison Yoga.
