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.
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.
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.
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!
Join us Monday evenings for a combination of yin, yang & restorative yoga styles. We will use the longer held yin poses to safely enhance the elasticity of the joints, transition to some gentle movement to burn off excess stress, and segue to supported postures designed to promote the relaxation response. Taught as a 6-week series.
Wonderful teacher of bringing Yoga into your daily life. Great for a beginner or the seasoned yogi. She has passion for her students and challenges you at your level.

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.

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.

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!
