Nancy Alder, the Flying Yogini, teaches and writes with a focus on the individualized practice of yoga.
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. She currently is in a 500H mentorship with Rolf Gates.
Nancy has been featured in and writes for both Origin Magazine and Mantra Yoga + Health Magazine. She is a contributor to actress Carrie-Anne Moss’s Annapurna Living. Her projects have been highlighted by Yoga Journal online and she writes for many of the most well known yoga websites.
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, Jason Ray Brown and Rolf Gates.
