Mandy Penksa

Assistant Manager


After completing her graduate studies specializing in Leadership for Sustainability Education in Portland, OR, Mandy returns to Chicago to bring her newfound knowledge of deep ecology, sustainability and social and food 

justice to the city and communities she loves most.  Like gardening, Mandy views yoga as a lifelong pursuit - enough is never enough.  Even after over a decade of practice, her heart and body continue to open through yoga.  She’s been known also to teach kid and adult yoga, always in the thick of the natural environment.  On her days off, you can find Mandy foraging, biking, lakefronting, filmgoing, experimenting with some unusual or medicinal plant, and, of course, on the mat.
