RYT 500 and Certified Ayurveda Counselor, Nancy discovered yoga in college over 40 years ago, and since that time she has had a long, continuous love affair with the practice. She has had an opportunity to study and practice Hatha, Iyengar and Anusara styles of Yoga and with masters Tias Little, Erich Schiffmann, and John Friend. Nancy originally began teaching Anusara Yoga in 2003. Her teaching style is a composite of the many styles of Yoga she has practiced over the years but is rooted in the traditional Hatha style. Nancy guides Alignment oriented Basic Yoga, Gentle (Yin) and Restorative Yoga as well as Meditation and Yoga Nidra (Yoga of sleep). There is an egoless gentleness when she guides a practice that can be pleasant to both mind and body. Nancy is known for her the depth of knowledge and teaches the Yoga philosophy in many DFW Yoga teacher training programs.
In addition to teaching Yoga Nancy does private Ayurveda consults (a traditional health system based on the idea of the balance in bodily systems and uses diet and herbal treatments) as well as Vedic Astrology charting.
Nancy is a native of California, but now proudly calls Texas home and lives in Dallas. Nancy speaks several languages and has a love of Sanskrit, the language of Yoga, Nancy previously lived in Japan where she taught Yoga and studied meditation, and has also traveled extensively in India. She is a former competitive transpacific sailboat racer and has faced the 26.2 mile challenge of the marathon a half a dozen times. First and foremost, through the practice of Yoga and Meditation, she is an explorer of her own mind.
