Nancy grew up in the south and spent a majority of her life in Louisiana and Texas. She moved to California in April 2007 to explore a new environment and figure out life as an individual away from her roots. Nancy became extremely passionate about health, wellness and fitness after her own parents fell victim to heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes. Her first yoga experience was at a 24-hour fitness gym, shortly after her move to California, with a teacher named Edna Barr who later became the same teacher Nancy took her 200 hour yoga teacher training certification from and continues to draw her inspiration from. Nancy completed the yoga teacher training certification through Frog Lotus at Yoga Belly Studio located in Mt. View. Nancy’s classes focus on a full body workout that includes the foundations of yoga with a tidbit of other fitness styles. The classes are centered on building strength, improving core stability, stretching and improving flexibility. When she is not doing yoga, she is working at an after-school program as the Site Supervisor in Palo Alto and loves to encourage children to be active and expose them to yoga at an early age. Nancy recently completed and received her 20 hour Kids Yoga Certification (K.Y.T) through Stretch.Play.Yoga in May 2014
Nancy instructs the following:
Barre Fusion (50 minutes)
Barre Fusion is a combination of Barre, Yoga and Pilates while moving along to fun and motivating music. The Barre portion of the class is designed to help strengthen and tone your entire body but with an emphasis on your glutes and legs by using small, controlled movements, isometric holds and high repetitions. The Pilates portion of the class is designed to strengthen the front and back core to help create more length in your spine and body. The Yoga portion of the class is designed to add balance by stretching out the muscles and improving flexibility. All three formats are taught and blended throughout the entire class.
