Nancy was introduced to yoga in the early 1970’s and has been practicing yoga over 40 years.
In the early 70’s and 80’s the information on yoga was scant. There were no yoga classes and DVD’s and the internet did not exist. Nancy had to search for like-minded people. In 1974, Nancy moved to Delaware and found other like-minded women who were interested in yoga. They got together and practiced twice a week. Each woman took turns leading the class and they would read from the book, How to be Your Own Best Friend.
Nancy then continued her study of yoga by acquiring an album from India and reading whatever books she could find on yoga. From the knowledge she gained she created yoga classes which she then taught for the Wilmington, Delaware Parks & Recreation Department during the mid to late 1970’s & 1980’s.
In 1998 Nancy was drawn back to yoga when she practiced with a teacher who had trained with Iyengar. Deepening her studies she took a meditation 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 Asthanga class and experienced an intense emotional and spiritual connection that had been missing from her previous years of yoga practice. Inspired by this new connection, Nancy completed a teacher training program concentrating on Ashtanga’s Primary Series and established a daily Ashtanga practice. 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, and Sarah Powers. Nancy is continually expanding her studies of yoga, currently concentrating on Yin style of Yoga.
Outside of her many years of yoga study and practice, Nancy has maintained a 44 year marriage, has raised two sons and is enjoying being a grandmother to her grandson. She has a BS in Math from Penn State University.
