Nancy’s yoga journey has span over 4 decades, being introduced to yoga in the early 1970’s. Information on yoga was scant. There were no yoga classes and; DVD’s, internet or YouTube did not exist. Nancy searched for like-minded people. In 1974, Nancy found 4 women who shared her interests. Gathering together, they practiced twice a week. Each woman taking turns leading the yoga postures and gathering spiritual direction from reading the book, How to be Your Own Best Friend.
Nancy continued her love of yoga by acquiring an album from India and reading and studying whatever books she could find on yoga. From the knowledge she gained she created Hatha yoga classes which she then taught for Delaware Parks & Recreation Department during the mid to late 1970’s & 1980’s.
After a divergence into teaching Aerobic Dance, Nancy was drawn back to yoga in 1998, finding a teacher who had trained with Iyengar and deepening her studies by taking a meditation retreat and workshop at the Himalayan Institute in Pennsylvania.
When she moved to FL in 2003, Nancy practiced Bikram and then Vinyasa yoga. In 2009 Nancy took an Astanga class and experienced an intense emotional and spiritual connection. Inspired by this new connection, Nancy completed a teacher training program concentrating on Astanga’s Primary Series and established a daily Astanga practice. She was also introduced to Yin Yoga in her training and found the practice of Yin to be an important balance to the rigors of Astanga.
She is a Certified 200 hour RYT. She has continued her yoga studies in workshops and intensives with Kino MacGregor, Tim Feldmann, David Williams, Manju Jois, Krista Shirley, Emilia Arenas, Jesus Cabellero, Greg Nardi, David Miliotis, and Sarah Powers. Nancy is continually expanding her studies of yoga, currently concentrating on Yin style of Yoga which she has been teaching over the last 5 years.
