PERSONAL

To Mandy Peck, yoga is a natural extension of physical therapy. “Yoga offers a balance that so many of us don’t have in life: mentally, spiritually and physically,” she says. A group fitness teacher for more than 10 years, she’s excited to extend her yoga teaching to Sport + Spine. In all her classes, Mandy places special focus on the why behind the workout. “I personally feel that keeping the why at the forefront of their minds helps them push a little harder than they would if they were working out on their own,” she says. “And I stress that it’s good to be uncomfortable during class . . . feeling the work brings results.”

When she’s not teaching yoga and group exercise at Sport + Spine, she enjoys spending time with her three boys and teenage sweetheart, as well as running, paining and reading. And if you’ve been to a Kansas City sporting event, you may have already seen Mandy: she sings professionally and has performed at Royals and Sporting KC games, as well as games at the Sprint Center and KU.
