MEET OUR TEAM
Born and raised in Patras, Greece, Mandy studied and worked in Athens as midwife/psycoprofylaktria, specialized in mental health, before moving to Asia in 2001 together with her husband and two boys. A third boy came along the way.
She spent the next 16 years in South Korea and Shanghai China, where she was exposed to eastern cultures and philosophies. Her first yoga class was a community class by a very inspiring Indian teacher, Renu, who was teaching the true essence of yoga. Since then (2002) different yoga systems gave her new tools to experience life, practice mindfulness and balance. In her classes, Mandy hopes to help her students reconnect with themselves from a place of kindness and compassion and discover their true potential.
