Ashtanga yoga, as taught to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois by his teacher, and as he passes down to us is a set system of poses linked by movement and breath. Power Yoga is said to be based on it, and while both are physically demanding, Ashtanga in it's true form is hugely different. Ashtanga has a scientific design, which is malleable to include those of all physical abilities, and that is structured to help the practitioner not only achieve fitness and health of the body, but stillness and well being of the mind.  In this workshop, safety of the body and stillness of the mind will be used as a means of attaining the poses, and considered of higher importance.

Nancy’s study of yoga began with a  foundation of pranayama and meditation under Alan Finger and began teaching under his guidance soon after. She then studied Iyengar with Lisa Walford, Steve Friedman, and Aadil Palkihivala. Her own teaching came to include flow yoga with focus on form and joy. In 1995 Dena Kingsburg introduced her to the Ashtanga practice and Nancy has dedicated her studies in this direction ever since, studying with, Pattabhi Jois, at every opportunity. She has also been deeply influenced by Shari Friedrichson, of the Himalayan Institute who encourages an internal path of cleansing pain to allow freedom of the true self. Interest in, The Bhagavad Gita, has been a natural continuance. It guides the journey to self while navigating a path in this world. Nancy uses a gentle, if exacting, emphasis on physical adjustments, and encouragement of self-doing to help her students find their intelligence, strength, abundance, and joy.
