Engage and retreat

Mandy Grant has become my primary yoga instructor over the past seven years. It has been a pleasure to learn and grow with her instruction and encouragement. She has build an ever widening yoga community of which I am pleased to be a part.

I have participated in several retreats Mandy has led in the past, taking away lasting memories and unique experiences (some of which include surfing and learning trapeze in the Dominican Republic and traveling through northern India). Mandy creates a retreat that is engaging (physically, mentally and spiritually), fun and that leaves plenty of room for self reflection. Without being obvious, Mandy sets a tone and creates a comfortable atmosphere that encourages and allows comradery among fellow retreaters to flourish. Her love for travel and different cultures further creates possibilities for what a retreat, in essence, promises - an opportunity to see oneself from a different perspective.

Takes Yoga to a new level...

Mandy demonstrates to me all that Yoga has to offer... the bodily strengthening and conditioning ( that we all require!), along with the spiritual aspects of focus and peacefulness that she brings to every class...she is truly a treasure! So lucky to have found her!

Mandy Grant

Mandy Grant has a unique and wonderful way of inspiring me reach further without over-reaching. She demonstrates and explains at the same time. So I can see what we are trying to do and at the same time she points out subtle differences between the correct position and something that looks correct. Her cheerful, up-beat, positive attitude is very encouraging. Her enthusiastic praise of improvement often takes me by surprise when she sees me making progress in a position that I am struggling with. Her warm and positive attitude is also present in every teacher that I have come in contact with at Juluka. She adds a welcome spiritual aspect to her class that seems to me to be just right.

Outstanding instructor!

Mandy is caring and very knowledgeable. She teaches with a balance of bodily challenge and spiritual support. I never feel pressured to do anything beyond my own limitations, and safety and form are always stressed. She is warm and welcoming.

Experienced professional

Mandy is a wonderful yoga teacher. She modifies classes for a variety of abilities and body types. Nonjudgemental, friendly, intuitive. Her class will challenge you while still keeping you safe. Students are encouraged to "play their edge" and listen to their bodies. Relaxing environment. Mix of traditional and contemporary music. Thoughtful flows and helpful adjustments. Emphasis on proper breathing and alignment. Love the inspirational, reflective life readings at the end of class to transition into shavasana. Total consideration of mind, body, and spirit.

Mandy is great

I was lucky enough to do my teacher training under Mandy at Juluka and absolutely loved it. She is such a kind generous person and an incredible teacher. She makes yogic teachings accessible and applicable to everyday life, as well as teaching great asana sequences.

Best in Bergen County

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.

One of the best!

After taking 2 yrs off of yoga due to a difficult pregnancy...it took one of Mandy's classes to get me back practicing yoga. Sensitive yet strong, her classes are so uplifting! Her knowledge, wisdom & holistic approach is a definite bonus - I absolutely love her! And recommend her highly.

About Mandy Grant

Mere words will not suffice to express appreciation for Mandy Grant, who runs the Juluka Yoga Studio in Hillsdale, New Jersey, who is a gifted yoga teacher, who loves yoga and practices regularly, who sees a student's need and fills it, who guides beginners with compassion and love, who encourages the experienced and the advanced with innovations and appropriate challenges, who inspires the entire class with her own vigor, energy, and enthusiasm, and who spends energy on others rather than he

rself, someone who touches each life as she enters and makes a difference in the world. She is a special treasure for New Jersey and America. There is a great deal of wisdom from the traditions which she shares with students in her teacher training course. More than all, she is a self-motivated individual who shows strong leadership qualities and program development skills and at the same time she is a life-long learner showing humility when needed. One example: she never fails to appreciate fellow yoga teachers abundantly. Anyone who gets to know her cannot but admire her tenacity, her patience, her willingness to help, and her deep knowledge of yoga, pranayama, and meditation.

Mandy is warm and welcoming. She immediately made me feel at ease when I began her beginner's classes. She explains each pose, it's purpose, and corrects alignment when necessary. She also makes her more advanced classes fun and interesting. Mandy truly has a special place in my heart and I will always thank her for the experience and opportunities she's given made. She made me confident in my teaching as well.

Mandy Grant is a superb teacher!

For quite a few years now, I have been a student in Mandy Grant's classes. After taking classes at several studios and gyms in Bergen County, I can say without qualification that she is one of the very best teachers in the area. I especially appreciate her expertise, which is combined with a gentle and encouraging manner. She is a dedicated instructor and deserving of every success.

Mandy is a fantastic teacher, an extraordinary person and a great yogi. She loves her work, she knows what she's doing, if it is the physical postures or explaining the philosophy/history of yoga. She is very compassionate with beginners and always has something new to teach advanced students. Her personality is lovable, her humor, intelligence and kindness are endless.

An amazing yoga teacher who exudes positive energy & warmth

I've been practicing yoga with Mandy for about 12 years now. She has a genuine warmth & energy that sparks one's interest for more yoga. As a result, I went through her teaching training program so that I could understand all aspects of yoga & not just limit my experience to the physical aspect of it. Under her guidance, she has helped me to improve my practice & understanding of what true yoga is about. She conducts her classes with a harmonious balance of both physical & spiritual yoga. Mandy sees where you need help & helps facilitate students to take their practice to the next level in a safe & encouraging manner. I've had classes with many yoga teachers but I always leave Mandy's class with a satisfying feeling.

A teacher who truly understands ALL aspects of yoga

Mandy is Bergen County's go-to teacher for a truly well-rounded yoga experience. Mandy focuses not only on the asanas (postures), but incorporates a nice balance of pranayama (breathing) and meditation. She's a seasoned teacher and truly understands the heart of a solid yoga practice and enjoys sharing this with all her students. I highly recommend Mandy and the Juluka yoga studio.

I have been taking classes with Mandy since she first opened a studio a Westwood and then moved to Hillsdale. She is a very patient, gentle and encouraging teacher who is focused on the individual. She comes around to make adjustments (always asks first if OK) and suggests alternatives if you find the pose too challenging. She always stresses and encourgaes everyone to stop if they're feeling any pain or discomfort and is very concerned about physical safety. She is a good listener and in tune with her students. What have I learned from her? That yoga is a practice - you don't always get it right and that's OK.

Fabulous Yoga Instructor

I have been taking yoga with Mandy for awhile. Her classes are interesting and challenging. She gears here instruction to the specific level of the student. My practice has grown and continues to grow with each class. She provides a friendly and safe environment where every participant feels comfortable and supported.

Mandy has the perfect yoga voice I could listen to her talk forever! She is a knowledgeable instructor and I had grown exponentially as a practitioner when I studied under Mandy. She does a great job providing a challenging class while also maintaining the safety of her students. I miss Juluka every day!
