Nancy is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (Level II); becoming a “CIYT” takes many years of dedicated practice, study, and rigorous testing; an endeavor that is deeply gratifying and transformative. After many years of attending yoga classes, Nancy decided to do a teacher training which introduced her to Iyengar yoga and she never looked back! Nancy has been teaching for over 15 years and finds that it is one of her greatest joys. Each student, each class, teaches her something new about herself and about yoga.

 

In 2019 a breast cancer diagnosis became one of her greatest and most challenging learning experiences. Teaching throughout her treatment provided Nancy with tremendous support and love from her students and the Iyengar yoga community. 

 

Joan White has been Nancy’s primary teacher and mentor since 2013, but she also studies regularly with Lois Steinberg and Matt Dreyfus. Nancy’s teachers have generously given her insights and encouragement, especially since her diagnosis. Their guidance has been an integral part of her healing.

 

Nancy’s husband Neal and their 2 grown sons, Leo and Ben, are the keepers of her heart and the lights of her life. When not in the studio teaching or practicing Nancy happily chooses to spend her time with her family. They love to cook, eat, and have lively discussions about politics, films, and well, just everything!

 

Nancy believes that through disciplined and joyful practice one can overcome the obstacles that keep us from being our best selves. Through the support of community, the love of friends and family, skillful action, and the belief in our own potential we can learn acceptance and santosha (contentment) as we dwell in possibility!

Emily Dickinson

I dwell in Possibility

A fairer House than Prose

More numerous of Windows Superior – for Doors

 

Of Chambers as the Cedars

Impregnable of eye

And for an everlasting Roof

The Gambrels of the Sky

 

Of Visitors – the fairest

For Occupation – This

The spreading wide my narrow Hands

To gather Paradise
