Mandy Sergent Glitzer


Mandy Sergent Glitzer, E-RYT500, C-IAYT has been teaching yoga since 2003 and became a Certified Yoga Therapist in 2008.

While Mandy has had scoliosis for as long as she can remember, she lived pain free until the birth of her second son. After her son’s birth, Mandy began having intense but short lived back pain. The pain continued to worsen in both intensity and frequency, at times causing Mandy to drop to her knees in tears, unable to stand up on her own. While Mandy still lived pain free much of the time, the fear caused by the possibility of these pain episodes began to control her life. It’s for this reason that Mandy decided to study Yoga for Backcare.

Mandy has studied Yoga for Backcare and Scoliosis extensively, training with some of the country’s most influential teachers such as Alison West, Deboroh Wolk, Rachel Jesien, Dr. Loren Fishman and, of course, Elise Browning Miller. Mandy completed Elise’s Yoga for Scoliosis certification in 2018.

Mandy’s own journey down this path of Yoga for Scoliosis has been remarkable, reducing her scoliosis curvature from 77 to 63 degrees in the first year and once again returning to pain free living.

Mandy owns Wellness in Motion (WIM), located in State College, PA, runs WIM’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and teaches both small group and private backcare/scoliosis yoga classes.
