Nancy began practicing Ashtanga Yoga in 1973 with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India. When Nancy asked Jois how she should teach, he told her to "teach the way I taught you"— advice which she took to heart and continues to follow today.
Nancy has also studied yoga with Baba
Hare Das. In 1980, she began the practice of Rinzai Zen under the instruction of Denis Kelly, the founder of Mondo Zen. She has also had the great privilege to participate on 2 occasions, in the Kalacharkra meditation with the Dalai Lama.
Nancy's meditation practices include the Loving Kindness Meditation as taught to her by Phylis and Matthew Coleman who reside on Salt Spring Island, Canada.
