Keri Mandell

Keri is the owner and founder of emPOWER Yoga. Keri started her journey with yoga twelve years ago while searching for a way to become more active and find balance in her life.  Through the years, yoga transformed Keri physically, emotionally and spiritually, allowing her to connect with others, improve her fitness and gain a better understanding of her true inner-self. Being a true teacher at heart and having worked for over a decade as a special education teacher and school administrator, Keri knew that she wanted to share what she had learned with others. Wanting to give back to a community that gave her so much, led Keri to decided to complete her teacher certification and develop emPOWER Yoga.  Keri is certified through Yoga Stream and Yoga Alliance. Keri’s high energy and go get ‘em attitude is infectious and challenges her students to want to do & be their best.  Keri’s classes are fun, challenging, and are sure to make you sweat.  

Keri is also a proud lululemon ambassador. Off the mat, Keri enjoys participating in all sorts of physical activities. In fact, Keri is also a CrossFit Coach, marathoner, & triathlete. Last summer she completed her first Ironman!!  Keri is currently training for the World Marathon Challenge (7 Marathons, 7 Continents, 7 Days) in February 2020.

Additionally, Keri loves to give back and supports the charities- American Cancer Society, Autism Speaks, Special Olympics, and Girls on the Run.

There is nothing that gets in Keri’s way, because when you believe in yourself you will be unstoppable!
