Mandy Adams has worked within the field of women’s health in one way or another her entire life and is currently working as a Menstruality Mentor offering Online Mentoring and Rites of Passage as well as Women’s Workshops, Pregnancy Yoga classes and Well Woman Yoga classes. She is also founder of Red Tent Cornwall and is frequently asked to bring her grounded voice both as a speaker and a writer.
She has a background in education and holds a BA (Hons) in Steiner (Waldorf) Education and specialist diplomas in Counseling, Shadow Work Facilitation, Yoga Teacher Training and Advanced Aromatherapy. Former creator of local business Love Baby Yoga, Mandy now offers her work under her own name.
Having spent much of her working life in Asia she now lives back in Cornwall with her husband and three young sons in the small town in which she was born. Mandy is deeply passionate about championing the three major hormonal changes in a woman’s life – menarche, mothering and menopause – as rites of passage offering opportunities to directly awaken to a woman’s relationship with the Earth, her inner Self and her unique calling within her community.
