My experience in teaching yoga ranges from very fit sports minded to students with physical impairments. I've worked with students aged preschool to those in their 80s. I enjoy the challenge of a mixed level class and encourage students to push their boundaries while respecting their limitations. While emphasizing correct alignment according to classical teachings I try to find a place of playful humor in each practice.

A Great Practice

I have practiced yoga with Nancy for many years. She's been a great teacher for me. She's knowledgable, patient, a good observer and listener. She is flexible when it comes to individual and/or group needs. Her style is eclectic, focusing on good alignment, deep breathing, flexibility and strength. She is warm and friendly with a sense of humor that she brings to her classes.

Amazing and Gifted Teacher

I have taken many classes with Nancy and always love them! Nancy has a strong confident way of describing the poses so students can get into even challenging poses with ease. She has a wealth of knowledge about alignment and positioning and shares it in playful ways. She takes students to a deeper level through her teachings.
