We hear the beating of
our heart in our ears,
we feel it in chest and
we watch as it changes when we move. Like a stereo it fills us with the music that can drown
out the negativity and
remind us to let the funky
beat and soulful light
shine from the inside out.
NANCY ALDER, THE FLYING YOGINI
Nancy Alder is a mom, yoga teacher and writer based in Connecticut. She teaches yogis to find their wings with ease through anatomy, acceptance and humor whether instructing arm balances or Savasana. She is known for making the esoteric approachable for all through intelligent sequencing and language. Nancy is trained in many styles of yoga ranging from vinyasa to yin and blends all of those influences creatively in her classes which are never the same. Her emphasis on Sangha, or community, shows in the way the yogis on her retreats and in her classes become a family.
When not teaching or writing, Nancy explores the enchanted forest behind her house with her elves, dreams of talking yoga on the Jimmy Fallon show, and counts the days until the next snowfall.
Nancy gives a huge shout out to her teachers: Anne and Matt Falkowski, Sadie Nardini, Jude Kochman, Joe Barnett, Jillian Pransky, Leslie Kaminoff, Anna Guest Jelley, Paula Scopino, and Jason Ray Brown.
