IGNITING & TRANSFORMATIVE PERSONAL GROWTH THROUGH YOGA AND A DEEP DIVE INTO OUR MIND-BODY CONNECTION.

Whether your aim is to deepen your personal practice and knowledge of Yoga or to learn how to share it with others, this comprehensive Yoga  teacher training and immersion, steeped in playful self development practices will set your soul on fire. 

 

Join our studio owner Mandy Roberts for this powerful, leadership focused, life altering experience into the magic and transformative teachings of Yoga.

WHAT MAKES AN INSPIRATIONAL LEADER?

We believe it starts with asking good questions, like the one above. Our 200 hour training focuses on supporting you to discover and uncover ways to connect to yourself first and foremost. With a curriculum steeped in personal development, coupled with the ancient wisdom of Yoga, you’ll be supported to uncover your unique gifts and lead with confidence over the course of this life-altering experience.  Our approach to this transformative journey is authentic, co-creative and embodied (and so, so much more!).

“AT HEART WE ARE ALL POWERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, AND CAPABLE OF CHANGING THE WORLD WITH OUR BARE HANDS.”
– DIANNE SYLVAN

IT’S EMBODIED

We will deepen our awareness and explore our patterns through the lens of self-development. We will practice playfully to form a deeper sense of connection to our own authority, gifts, and our vocation in the world. We will explore our relationship to our personal power as we mindfully inhabit our body with ease and acceptance. With heartfelt engagement we will share these life-changing teachings by simply being who we are (or by teaching others if that’s your plan!).

IT’S CO-CREATIVE

We will become creative participants of life. As we each join in the conversation of Yoga we will experience a deep dive into Yoga as a living, breathing, and evolving art form with its roots in ancient wisdom teachings. We will practice being students together, asking questions, and deeply listening to ourselves and each other. We will practice being compassionately alive in our bodies. We will learn to collaborate with ourselves, our students, and the world around us.

IT’S AUTHENTIC

We will re-discover our authentic selves. On this journey we will discover our strengths, learn how to overcome our roadblocks to growth, and hone our authentic voice. Through the teachings of Yoga we will learn to tune into ourselves and harness our passion and purpose. From this place we will step into our full potential to lead from the heart, speaking our truth and sharing our greatest gifts with the world.

WHAT SETS US APART (AND WHAT’S INCLUDED FOR YOU)

I waited for years to do my YTT until I found the “right” teacher, and there is no question Mandy was worth the wait. She is a wealth of wisdom and knowledge, and brings concepts to life in a way that instills deep understanding — always infused with a healthy dose of humor! Mandy provided me with a solid foundation to feel confident teaching, while still allowing me the freedom to find my own voice and stay true to myself along the way. She embodies creativity and compassion, and cares about each student deeply. Mandy’s belief in me propelled me forward and I could not be more grateful. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

– APRIL BLACK, former FORM yoga teacher

“Through YTT I learned to love and have confidence in my body as it is! I learned how to use my breath in hard spaces by breathing in hard poses. Mandy taught me that Yoga is a practice on the mat so that I have tools to use off the mat. Mandy taught me that for most things, I should focus on what’s optimal rather than what’s right or wrong. The decision to take YTT was one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself and by extension my family. I am a better person for being Mandy’s student.”

– Tennielle Bailey, form yoga member

“I wasn’t necessarily going to teach Yoga when I signed up for YTT. But something happened during the months of learning, training, and practicing. Mandy devoted 100% of her attention and authenticity to our training weekends, making our classes a safe place to explore, play, and be vulnerable. Her guidance allowed for my own personal discovery and clearing of my path forward.  I now teach yoga in studio, online, and with private clients. Did yoga teacher training change my life? Absolutely, because I was willing to jump in and had a safe place to land! If you are at all considering investing in yoga teacher training with Mandy Roberts, even if you don’t know if you’re going to teach yoga, I highly recommend doing it!

– alisa lewis, form yoga teacher

“Working with Mandy to achieve my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification was a life changing experience. Mandy is not just an instructor in the realm of yoga- she became a spiritual guide and a light in my life, she shifted my way of thinking and better prepared me for life’s challenges, she is an incredible storyteller, and a genuine, authentic, funny, beautiful soul. Transformational is the only way to describe my time spent with Mandy in her program. ”

– Meghan Bayersdorfer , form yoga student

MANDY ROBERTS, (she/her)
Experienced Yoga Teacher, Studio Owner, & Community Leader
Lead Teacher

FORM yoga Creative Director & Owner

The inspiration and driving force behind Atlanta’s FORM {yoga} Mandy is always learning, adapting and growing. As a studio owner Mandy has built a beautiful, inclusive community that focuses on empowerment, trust and connection. As a single mom, Mandy leads by example teaching her two kids to (playfully) grab life by the horns and to live life to the fullest. And as a yoga teacher and retreat leader Mandy encourages her students to face their fears in class, online and out in the world while exploring humility, playfulness and laughter.

Finding yoga in 2004, Mandy had no idea she was embarking on a life-long journey of personal growth. Her divorce just a few years later was the catalyst for a complete dissolution of her former life and the beginning of what is now FORM {yoga}. 

At that point life led her into a new career teaching yoga and owning a yoga studio {yep, it really did happen that way}. During the extremely challenging times surrounding her divorce Mandy found that the teachings of yoga were one of the only things that could help her keep her focus on moving forward and choosing life.

A graduate of the 12-month Urban Priestess movement, Mandy is always looking to deepen her connection with the Divine found in all of creation. A lover of all energies psycho-spiritual and subtle, she has studied Pranic Healing with Master Stephen Co, the Enneagram with Russ Hudson, Intuitive Development with Janet Raftis, and Yoga & Functional Movement with Mitchel Bleier. In addition Mandy has studied yoga with numerous accomplished national and international teachers from various traditions. More recently Mandy is honored to be a virtual teacher of online videos through GatherYoga. Mandy is twice a Lululemon Athletica ambassador in Atlanta and represented Atlanta at the Lululemon Ambassador Summit in Whistler. She has been a proud presenter at the Dirty South Yoga Fest, the Atlanta Women’s Foundation Yogathon, Wigwam Health and Wellness Festival, and a co-chair of the first annual Atlanta Yoga Rave.

You can find Mandy in Decatur, Georgia, teaching her weekly classes at FORM {yoga}. When not teaching you can find her writing for her blog, galavanting around the world, leading yoga retreats, drinking wine and eating delicious food.

“Enrolling in YTT at FORM Yoga was one of the best decisions I have ever made!  I could not have asked for a better teacher and mentor to have on this journey than Mandy.  She offered so much knowledge, wisdom and compassion throughout the training, so that by the end, I felt very prepared and confident in my ability to lead my own yoga class. In fact, I am now a teacher at FORM!  

Mandy has many gifts as a teacher, but one of her best is helping other hopeful teachers find their own gifts and strengths. Thanks to her expert guidance and support, I was able to find my voice as a teacher and completed the training as a stronger, more confident yogi, teacher and human. “
