  • I've been studying with Mandy for some time now and can honestly say, after practicing with various gurus across the area, that she is the pinnacle of instruction, care, and nurture. Mandy has a fantastic worldview coupled with many years of teaching experience. For beginners and advanced practitioners alike, she is the yogini to seek.

  • I could sum it up in a nutshell -My experience has been SUBLIME. The last ten years of my life have been very challenging and although I've acted upon them with fierce commitment and resilience, I forgot about nurturing myself MY yoga practice has enabled me to reconnect with my inner joy, my love for my children, my fortitude, and lastly MY purpose in life. And so, If I overcame so many obstacles, why can't others? Reason why I embarked in this new journey to become a teacher. My purpose is to learn how to help others, help themselves! The opportunity to serve and help others is the icing on the cake!

  • Although I took my first yoga class some twenty years ago, it wasn’t until about ten years ago that I realized my passion for it, began practicing regularly, and then several years ago made the wise decision to become a certified yoga teacher. I never considered training with anyone else but Mandy Grant; quite simply, she is a teacher’s teacher. She understands how to teach, and her energy is magnetic. My husband was also quite supportive, which helped allay my fears of “managing it all” during the intense teacher training. Once enrolled, I never looked back. Having Mandy as my guide, in my head and in my heart, I finished the program with the confidence and knowledge needed to go out and teach a variety of classes, levels, and ages. I am currently teaching a variety of Hatha yoga classes, from kids to seniors, summer camp to chair yoga and everything in between. Within each class is always a different experience; I enjoy the unique energy each experience brings. Thank you, Juluka!

  • Outstanding customer service. Owner, Mandy Grant is a treasure. Classes offer a variety of modifications for any level. Intermediate yogis will be challenged. Not commercial or pretentious, this is real yoga in an inviting atmosphere. Great place to clear your mind and get fit. Last spring, I searched all over for a 200 hr accelerated teacher training program, and was often disappointed with the atmosphere or the price of many places. Juluka impressed me with its straight forward course description and growth oriented learning environment. It delivered on what was promised. Mandy is a patient mentor and works hard to create a supportive, nonjudgemental community of teacher trainers. She and all the teachers at Juluka are there to help you listen to your body, grow as a person, and be healthy. Whatever you are looking to get out of a yoga practice, you can do it here at Juluka.

  • Mandy teaches us more than just technique to benefit from stretching and strengthening yoga poses, more than the just the priceless skills of how to de-stress through breathing and meditation. Mandy's influence digs deeper than that, to the core reasons why we practice yoga anyway, and why it is so valuable to pursue a yogic life as Mandy does everyday with humility and devotion. Mandy begins from the start of teacher training and infuses in all the student classes the core philosophy behind yoga and then teaches from example. From the starting point of explaining in small easily digestible segments the practical relevance of Patanjali's eight limbs of yoga Mandy sets in motion our yogic journey whereby we carve out our own path through yoga. One example of Mandy's inspiration, again, by example is to do karma work, which she does regularly. Specifically, she helped establish the foundation for our grassroots charity peace4paws by her teachings on the Ahimsa which means to act with non-violence to all living things. Juluka Yoga encourages compassion to animals, to people & to ourselves in all it's work. It's real yoga.

  • Yoga found me about several years ago during a hard hard time. After my 4th class, taught by Mandy Grant, I was hooked and had to know more about the practice. This was what my life had been missing and I wanted to start from the beginning. I practiced at other studios, tried new teachers and workshops in the mean time yet nothing could replace Juluka Yoga as my home. About two years into my practice is when I knew I was going to be a teacher and one of my teachers saw it in me too. I enrolled into Mandy Grant's training and couldn't have been more excited to start my journey! During those 6 months, my whole life changed. We were challenged physically and mentally but it was well worth it. I would not go back and change a thing. As I continue to teach and preach the beauty of life, love and yoga, I create an intention that will manifest exactly how I want it to: incorporating yoga in the lives of Autistic Children.

  • I was hooked on yoga after I took my first class taught by Mandy. After a few years of practicing I knew it was time to deepen my practice by doing the teacher training program at Juluka Yoga Studio with my first teacher, Mandy Grant. It was a wonderful experience and I learned so much about yoga and myself. Mandy's compassion and guidance inspired me to become a teacher and I have been teaching at Juluka ever since. When I teach at other studios students always comment that my classes "have such a nice flow" which I credit to Mandy's teaching style. I would recommend Juluka and the teacher training program to anyone with a love for yoga and wanting a genuine, knowledgable instructor.

  • The Juluka teacher training with Mandy Grant has made an immense impact on my life and the life of others around me. As a medical doctor, I thought I knew a lot. I loved practicing yoga and was searching for a part time job opportunity. I knew that yoga was good for health and I could easily understand the health benefits that yoga offers. Yoga and ayurveda even gave me some answers to questions I couldnt find in the western medicine. I was surprised though that Mandy opened up a new door for me- a door of wisdom, spirituality and love for humans and gave me a total different perspective on health and healing. After I received the juluka teacher certificate I started a completely new exciting career. I developed into a full time yoga teacher, made worskhops and lectures, wrote articles while proceeding with my yoga education. I continue teaching yoga after I moved back to Europe, considering myself an "International yoga teacher" - the certificate is valid everywhere in the world! Working as a medical doctor again I hope my patients will benefit from the knowledge and wisdom I gained through the tt with Mandy.
