Mandy Irons, RYT 200
Mandy is our new addition to the Wild Souls team!
Having grown up on a small farm in Colorado, she spent most of her time under bluebird skies and crystal clean nights, taking time in peace and without distractions to witness to discover the surroundings and the spirit of nature and the animals around her. She has a passion for adventure and enjoys backpacking, snowboarding, camping, and trips to the ocean.
Mandy’s curiosity about the connection between nature and the human experience led her to spend many years in academia and personal adventures studying anthropology, archaeology, and the humanities with a focus on Southwest, Plains Indian, and Central American cultures.
She embraces a natural talent for the arts. She is a musician playing numerous instruments including banjo, upright bass, drums, and native flutes. She has traveled extensively to enjoy music, and you just may find her holding down a bass line at camp at a local bluegrass festival.
Mandy’s biggest passion is in the fine arts. Her insatiable quest to study art and the humanities have resulted in a treasure trove of experience in painting, figure drawing, and Native American beadwork and natural fiber crafts.
The goal in her art is to create moments of the connection between Art and the Spirit, with hopes of evoking emotion, passion, and a quest for self-exploration. You can see her work on Facebook: Mandy Irons – of Art and Spirit.
To add to her tapestry of experience, she began her journey in yoga to seek a deeper connection between the Mind, Body, and Spirit. She is a now a 200 YTT certified yoga instructor and blossoming teacher. All these passions combined have created a unique and vibrant experience that she is eager to share and continue to grow with Wild Souls Yoga.
