How we met:
Instagram is an amazing place. I have my own instagram feed that has lots of yoga on it (@carrot_bowl_bonnie) and enjoy following other yogis and those interested in health and fitness. I’ve met some amazing people through that platform. Mandy is one of them. (You can find her at @mandyingber.)
I feel very grateful to talk to someone who has so much more experience than I do. Mandy has practiced yoga since she was 7, written two books, and enjoys teaching people like Jennifer Aniston, Kate Beckinsale, Helen Hunt, and Brooke Shields. She shares that it’s okay to be broken, to find your journey, and that each of us have a valuable voice that is worthwhile.
Mandy is Dynamo.
These are people who daily do their thing and might not even realize how their example, their powerhouse nature, and their story empowers other lives. When we listen to each other’s stories, when we let ourselves be affected by them, we become kinder and more compassionate. We might each move in different ways and do different things, but I believe that when you tell your story, you are empowered to keep living mindfully and present. This translates to all of us lifting together.
Welcome to the Dynamo community, Mandy!
SPECIAL NOTE: I’ve been wanting to make this series into a podcast for a while now, so this is actually an audio interview through SoundCloud. I would LOVE your feedback on what you think…with the understanding that this is raw and at the very beginning of the process.
