A Los Angeles native, Mandy Ingber got a lucky break on Broadway at age 14 playing the character Laurie Morton in the original cast of Neil Simon’s Tony-Award winning play, Brighton Beach Memoirs. Though her acting career continued to blossom with a number of TV and feature films roles, including Cheers, My Sister Sam, The Wonder Years, Charles in Charge, Teen Witch, and Mr. Mom, Ingber was always haunted by a fortune teller who once told her that she would find her true calling inspiring people to wellness.
Ingber was an up and coming actress when a series of misfortunes disrupted her life: her parents divorced; her friend and colleague, Rebecca Schaeffer, was murdered; she was severely beaten in a random assault; and her father died. All of this led her to question what she really wanted out of life and how she wanted to contribute to the world. While trying to figure out the answer, she fell back on the things that had fed her growing up—the yoga her father had taught her; a passion for music, art, astrology, psychology, philosophy; and above all a love of movement in any form. Her friend and instructor, Bob Harper (now known to millions for his role on The Biggest Loser), told her that she had a natural ability to motivate others and encouraged her to become a fitness instructor. Soon after, Ingber began teaching spinning and yoga in Los Angeles. Her classes were packed and became a must for those serious about their fitness. The fortune teller’s prediction had come true and suddenly it all made sense.
Ingber strives to motivate an ever-widening audience of students through the miracle of technology, connecting to people around the world via social networking sites and downloadable audio and video classes. She is a regular contributor to Internet sites That’s Fit, LIVESTRONG, and Fit Sugar. Ingber also conducts Yogalosophy and VisionMat workshops around the country, makes special appearances at resorts and various public events as a fitness expert, and is franchising the Yogalosophy workout in Canada.
Today, Ingber lives and teaches in Los Angeles.
