Yoga is more than postures and stretching. Like nutrition, it is a way to transform the body, mind and spirit to achieve a more positive state. While the practice of yoga brings flexibility, strength and balance to the whole person, the healing benefits of yoga are limitless and best of all, accessible to all!Yoga Libre offers an exceptionally therapeutic style of yoga, and incorporates elements from training across a wide variety of yoga styles by knowledgeable teachers and healers. Many Yoga Libre students have empowered themselves to reverse the effects of chronic postural imbalances through correct alignment and a balanced yoga practice.

Class Descriptions

 

Mixed Levels

A complete practice suitable for practitioners of all levels. Modifications and options will be suggested so that every student will be able to participate and challenge him/herself. Each week a different anatomical or pose focus will be explored. 

 

Yoga Basics

Explore yoga’s basic alignment principles, breathing and relaxation techniques. Appropriate for those new to yoga, and those who would appreciate a refresher course. Ability to get up and down from the floor unassisted is necessary. Taught as a 6-week series. 

 

Gentle Yoga

This class can be done on a mat or in a chair, or a combination thereof! With a slower pace and an emphasis on stretching and alignment, this 1-hour class is perfect for everyone -- people who simply want a slower approach sometimes; people with injuries, physical challenges or limitations; those who have been hesitant to try yoga; people who find getting up and down from the floor difficult.

Body Rolling - Periodic Workshops

Roll your body out like dough on various small balls, stretching and elongating your muscles, dislodging tensions and discomfort, releasing myofascia, increasing blood flow, and promoting healing. Learn how to increase circulation and create a practice to help counteract the effects of gravitational pull on our bones & muscles. A great complementary practice to yoga, myofascial release may just be the key to longevity & functionality!

Process & Etiquette for Yoga Libre Livestream Classes on Zoom
 

  1. Invitations to join Yoga Libre’s livestream classes will be sent to Yoga Libre Members the day before the class and contain a link to allow you to register on Zoom. If you are not a member but use a class card to attend the virtual classes, please make sure I know your desire to register the day before class so I can send you an invitation.
     

  2. Once you register, you will get a confirmation email from Zoom, not me, that will give you the link to join the class. Please check your Spam folder if you don’t receive the confirmation email from Zoom in a timely manner. If you don’t receive it in a couple of hours, please email me and I will have Zoom resend you the confirmation.
     

  3. Please log into the class meeting on Zoom about 10-15 minutes before the scheduled class time to make sure you can get in. I’ve been getting texts and emails from people telling me they can’t log on, but since they were sent at the time the class is scheduled, I didn’t see the message until after class was over. Once I’ve started class, I won’t be able to resend your confirmation.
     

  4. I’m delighted that your pets are practicing with you, but if you have dogs that may bark at all during class, or birds that might chirp, or any other noise-making pets, please mute your microphone on Zoom so that others may enjoy the instruction and especially Savasana in peace.
     

  5. Similarly, please mute your phones or turn off your home phone’s ringer before class begins. If you have a roommate or a noisy appliance in your home, please practice in a different room from them/it and shut the door to the room before class begins so those noises won’t disturb the other class participants. You also have the option on Zoom to mute your computer's microphone at the start of class.


Thank you for your consideration!

I have been a student of Nancy's for nine years now. She is the Best yoga instructor. Always making sure you are in proper alignment . She also brings her kind loving spirit into every class. Five stars from me.

- Lorraine O.

 


LOVE Nancy! If there is such a thing as yoga-phobia, Nancy’s classes are your antidote. She is lovely, gentle, funny and wise. But make no mistake, this IS exercise, you just won’t notice. Each week, Nancy leads with an insightful parable about living life better, woven into a rigorous class that will have your body toned and strong in no time. Don’t worry, this is not a paid endorsement. I just hope there’s still room for my yoga mat after word gets out about Nancy’s classes.

Nancy has knowledge of physiology, as well as a deep understanding of yoga. This combination allows her to demonstrate the Asanas and correct any misalignments we might have. My husband and I have attended Nancy's class for over four years and highly recommend her as a yoga instructor.

- Marcella & Archie W.

 

Nancy teaches from the heart and it shines bright. Her knowledge of yoga and the body is amazing. Safety is always first, she can modify any pose to work with any limitation you might have. Nancy has a wonderful way of making every practice special!
