Nancy (Manorama) McMahon, RYT 500, E-RYT 200, YACEP
Accessible Yoga Ambassador
Nearly 20 years ago, Nancy discovered yoga’s centering and stress reduction benefits. She realized her lunch-time yoga practice would return her to a high stress workplace energized and refreshed. Nancy also realized that yoga gave her the strength, focus, balance and flexibility that allowed her to continue all the activities she loved like gardening, biking, swimming and traveling.
Graced with retirement and eager to continue learning, Nancy thought about what gave her joy. She realized yoga did and so began the journey. Earning her teaching credentials and establishing a teaching practice were the first steps in sharing her love of yoga. Nancy then sought to extend that sense of welcome to others of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities.
