An activist in the global health revolution, Nancy is committed to practicing the best version of herself every day, and to using her talents to contribute to the world in a positive way. Nancy teaches the therapeutic benefits of yoga* in classes and with private clients.  She conducts yoga trainings in Greece, Detroit, Northern New Jersey, nancy in truckand Colorado and in Hawaii. She also directs 200 and 500 level yoga teacher trainings and 1000 hour yoga therapy trainings**. Nancy’s approach to yoga is the product of twenty-nine years of her own practice, her ownership of a successful yoga studio in Hawaii for 5 years, and her nineteen years of teaching. It’s been her great privilege to be taught – and inspired by – fabulous senior level teachers in the Ashtanga, Anusara, Iyengar and Structural Integration styles of yoga. Nancy, as the founder of Yoga Impact, shares her practice with under-served populations – women and children in shelters, at-risk youth, senior citizens, war veterans and prisoners, as well as the homeless. Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, Yoga Therapy Today, Boulder Magazine, and Natural Awakenings in both Northern New Jersey and Boulder. Along with teaching yoga, Nancy enjoys photography, homebuilding, social dancing, and time with her husband and children.
