Nancy found yoga about 25 years ago as a way to deal with the stress and pain from cancer treatments. With a regular yoga practice her body healed. While working with other cancer survivors she found that her passion and love of yoga inspired others. Consequently in 2008 she enrolled in the Heart of the Cascades Yoga teacher training and received her 200 hour certificate. At this same time she was introduced to Baron Baptiste’s power yoga and found an instant connection with the transformational power and mental & physical harmony from this practice In 1/09 she completed Suzie Harris’ teacher training and then trained with Baron Baptiste at his Level 1 training in the Catskills in 8/09 & Level 2 in 09/10. 10/11 she completed the Apprentice Assisting at Level 1 in Austin and 12/2011 she became a Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher!! Only the 2nd one in the State of Oregon! In addition to yoga, Nancy enjoys traveling out of the country, cycling, long distance running, skiing, her 4 legged pal Elle and zipping around Bend on her scooter.
