Meet the Creators of Modern Healer Yoga

This brand was built on courage. On being vulnerable. On taking a chance on a stranger. And hopefully, it inspires you to do the same.
In February 2015, Mandy was on a spirit quest in the deserts of Joshua Tree, California. Jade was on a similar simultaneous soul-mission down in the deserts of Baja California, Mexico. After a particularly beautiful meditation, Mandy awoke and immediately messaged Jade, whom she had never communicated with before. She invited Jade to come down to San Diego to co-create a Woman Poetry class together, and the rest is history. 3 years of teaching workshops and retreats together non-stop led them to the idea of creating something bigger. They feel called to shift the entire paradigm of what yoga looks, feels, and tastes like. They are on a mission to integrate all of their favorite spritiual teachings and healing modalities into one dynamic practice that leads you back to the source. 
Jade Alectra
Born in the middle of an Earthquake and named after a guitar, Jade Alectra wasn’t given much choice to not shake up this world with no stone left unturned. Somewhere along the journey, Jade discovered that beneath her anger, were her wounds. And beneath her wounds was the true depth that we all have been conditioned to run from. Yoga was the mirror to help her heal and feel past hurts, traumas, and heartbreaks. Emotional based teaching is her specialty, with an emphasis on rather than the age old, "empty your mind and leave what’s happening in your life outside of the studio" --  bring all of that shit INTO the room, ONTO your mat, and work THROUGH it in your body. 
​ Jade has been teaching yoga and other healing modalities since 2014. Based in Orange County, California, she considers Baja Mexico and Kauai to be where her soul sinks the deepest.

She is a constant seeker and student of life, ever in search of the next bit of inspiration or information that will shift her perspective and open her heart in a new way. With love and deep gratitude, she welcomes you into this special piece of her life's purpose. Modern Healer Yoga is ready to blast off and break some hearts wide open!
