Nancy began practicing Ashtanga Yoga over forty years ago with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India. As a result of their long and close association, Nancy is able to teach with a style and touch that comes directly from Pattabhi Jois. When Nancy asked Jois how she should teach, he told her to “teach the way I taught you”—advice which she took to heart and continues to follow today. Nancy’s studies over the years have also led her to other teachers, including Baba Hari Das and, for asana, instructors of Iyengar. In addition, she has and continues to pursue the dharma teachings of the Dalai Lama. Nancy spends much of her time touring the United States, Europe, and Asia, teaching with a view to fostering loving-kindness and to sharing her love and experience of yoga.
