Nancy has completed over 750 hours of Yoga Alliance Teacher trainings and has been influenced by various methods and traditions. Yet it has been the challenge of overcoming one of life's greatest tragedies and losses that opened up the inner-door to her heart and has allowed Nancy to infuse and channel her teachings with great compassion, confidence and joy.


 Her Tantra Vinyasa classes, a style unique to her particular way of sharing and combining the creativity of Vinyasa Yoga method with her passion of Non-dual Tantra, contain a myriad of elements including Tantric techniques, powerful breathwork, and modern expressions of yogic arts. This unique fusion of awareness & embodiment practices come together to create a highly educational, physically challenging, and deeply soulful experience. Each class explores not only creative vinyasa sequences guided by principles of alignment, but offers Tantric practices of Mantra, kirtan, pranayama, and other techniques for awakening our inner fire, stabilizing the mind, and expanding our capacities on all levels.
