NANCY (Manorama) McMAHON, RYT 200
I discovered yoga during my career in local government as a human resources director, budget and risk manager. My respite during those hectic days came from a lunch-time hatha yoga class that returned me to the workplace centered, focused and with more energy. I realized that yoga worked for me in a way that no other activity did as it helped strengthen me both physically and mentally.
Graced with retirement and eager to continue learning, I searched for life’s second chapter and thought about what gave me joy. Yoga did. So began my journey of earning my teaching credentials and establishing a yoga practice to share my love of yoga with others.
I earned Yoga Alliance’s RYT 200 certification after completing studies with Denise Moore’s Open Dimension Yoga Teachers Training Program, an Integral Yoga based program. Further professional studies have added certifications in Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep/deep relaxation) Aqua Yoga and Pranayama (breath techniques). I have also completed Sara Meek’s Meeks' Method Bone Camp Program: Skeletally Appropriate For Everyone (SAFE) Yoga. Plus, I am certified by the American Heart Association in Heartsaver CPR AED.
Additionally, I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Purdue University, a master’s degree in Public Administration from Indiana University and am a Senior Certified Professional through the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-SCP).
