This class occurs weekly on Saturdays at 930am
A slower practice gives students the opportunity to achieve advanced postures with the assistance of props and modifications. Vinyasa flow emphasizes a connection between the breath and the postures creating an easier path to mental clarity. Slow flow targets the deep connective tissues of the body through deep stretches and helps you to restore by relaxing and letting go. It’s deep and nourishing, without much flow. Build your flexibility and allow for your body to restore during this yoga class made for any level of experience.
Hi, I’m Nancy McPartland
Each and every one of us is meant to feel bliss, meant to know that they are not alone. I provide a unique therapeutic approach intended to assist you in overcoming whatever it is that is keeping you disconnected from your truth. My teaching style is a culmination of a 30 year love affair with yoga beginning in the Iyengar tradition. I utilize careful attention to alignment, breath and the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras to help you step into your authentic self.
Yoga flows intuitively and creatively through Nancy. She is a master who seamlessly guides her students safely with options for modifications through a fulfilling and complete experience.
Nancy brings a joyful energy and playfulness to the mat. Always a seeker and steeped in many yoga traditions, her deep understanding of pranayama technique and philosophy provide students with a rich and varied experience every time.
'May all of your actions lead to freedom and joy for all people.'
