Nancy has always had a compelling curiosity about movement and a deep interest in holistic health. In 2008, as the stresses of her modern life increased, she found solace in the deepening of her personal yoga and pilates practice. She quickly awakened the insight necessary to realize her destiny of loving what she does while supporting others to choose a healthier and more fulfilling life by becoming a wellness expert. Nancy began an extensive self-study and rapidly grew a tenacious passion for educating herself about the miracle of the human body, mind, and spirit and how to thrive on all levels. She decided to make a dramatic career shift, quit her job in the retail world, and enrolled in and completed the Instructor Certification Program at Vitality Pilates, while also training at the Samarya Center for her yoga teacher certification, and becoming certified as a personal trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Nancy has used these healing practices to heal and transform her own body and life after spinal and brain injury from several auto accidents that left her in debilitating pain and mental anguish. Nancy studies with local and internationally known master teachers, and relies strongly on her own personal practice and intuition to influence her teaching. Her teaching incorporates a strong knowledge of alignment and sequencing to ensure safety while allowing students to develop to their full capacity in the exercises.<br/>She encourages students to work at their own pace in a comprehensive and compassionate environment while also challenging them to move beyond their perceived limitations ultimately unveiling the innate loving energy that transforms and heals each of us from within.
