*Healthy Magazine- 3 Stars, "Love the idea of yoga, but can't even bend down to tie your shoelaces properly? Yogalosophy is a good place to start." *Now Magazine- Review 15th May - "Mandy brings her understanding, skill, compassion and humor into my home along with her yoga mat and great music. I love Mandy and I love her yoga. And my husband is very pleased with what it has done for my behind, on a completely shallow note." --Kate Beckinsale Actress "I find Mandy's words inspiring and her choice of music is perfect to make me forget that I am dying from overexertion. She's the world's best spinning teacher, who brings me humor while she kicks my ass." --Ricki Lake TV Talk Show Host, Author "Mandy Ingber brings joy, humor, and self-love into your workout. She's the best." --Helen Hunt Academy Award-Winning Actress - "I'm a girl who never worked out, in fact, I never liked it at all. But somehow with Mandy, I can't wait for my workouts. Even throughout my pregnancy when I was huge and lazy, I still looked forward to the days when we walked and stretched. I started out (pre-pregnancy) doing spinning with Mandy, then yoga. I can't explain how much I adore Mandy, personally, and what she has done for my body. I attribute her workouts to my simple easy wonderful birth of my daughter. My body was prepared and ready." --Jennifer Meyer Maguire Jewelry Designer "Since starting my yoga practice with Mandy, my body has toned and I've lost inches. I feel great and very strong, physically. But more than that, her teachings relay the importance of the mind/body connection and acceptance of self which has made a huge impact on me. Mandy has changed my life." --Siobhan Schanda Producer (Chelsea Lately)
