ABOUT

My name is Nancy and I am the fearless leader here at Nancy Nelson Yoga! I have been instructing yoga since 2012 and am certified as a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP) with Yoga Alliance.  I love guiding yoga classes in all forms – from sweaty vinyasa flows, to slow mindful movement, and as you might observe from my site – yin yoga is my jam! I attended a formal 50 hour Yin Yoga training with Bernie Clark in the fall of 2018 and it was such a nice addition to all of the research and personal study I’ve put into my personal yin practice and teachings.

On my site you will find yin sequences, posture breakdowns and offerings for webinars and in-person trainings. I’m grateful to have you here!

    Love your site! I just found it looking for some ideas for a Yin class I am putting together…We have so much in common! Love my Lord, I am a wife and mama! Yogi and serious crafter too! Looking forward to reading your posts!

    You have the most comprehensive illustrations I have found, not to mention the ways to counter each pose. I just started Yin Yoga 3 weeks ago at my local studio and I do some of it at home on my own to keep up maintenance on my body.

    Love love love your yin sequencing! I am so happy I found you! Will you be doing more sequencing? Helps me so so much and I use your sequences in my yin class. Love that you are a woman of faith as well! What would we do without our Lord?
    I would love to take a yin training course but am having a hard time finding training near me. Love yin yoga!!t

      Planning to have a new sequence up this weekend! Be on the lookout. So thankful to hear you are a believer, Trish! Glad we connected 🙂 I am working on developing a “Teaching Yin Yoga” course that I’ll be offering to studios across the US in the near future. Let me know if you’d like to be contacted once that’s an option.

    Hi Nancy – I get so much inspiration from your site. I’d love to do your yin teacher training workshop, but I live in Australia. Do you offer online teacher training?

    • nancynelsonadventures

      Hey Dwana! Thank you so much for saying so. I love having you here! Unfortunately at this time, it is not available in an online format. If your studio would like to host me for this 8-hour event, I would be happy to discuss pricing and dates for later this year. Feel free to contact me ~Nancy.

    Hello Nancy, thanks for your sharings. Trying to find your playlists on spotify but can’t track you – do you have a specific id name on spotify for your playlists? Thanks. Yogini D

    Thank you Nancy. I’m trying to figure out how to navigate life as an empty nestor. I teach yoga and I love the “aha” moments my students have. But even better are the “aha: moments that I have in my own practice. I really like this sequence. I’m going to try bits and pieces of it for the next week or two.
    I lost a son 5 years ago and it has totally changed what’s important in my life. We didn’t get the chance to have our last conversation. There were so many things we needed to work through….. Moving forward I parent my 3 other sons differently. Their lives are so important, their struggles are so real, and I don’t miss an opportunity to tell them I love them. I love you simply because you’re my son and you don’t have to do anything to get or keep my love. What grieves me are parents that are struggling with their teenagers or adult children, I want to yell at them, “You only get 1 chance try not to mess this us.” Thanks for your blog.

    Nancy I follow your posts and love the sequencing coupled with themes. I am trying to build a yin sequence for my students around the crown chakra. I need all levels Yin tending to restorative and supported options in poses…any suggestions? Thanks Bitsy

    • nancynelsonadventures

      Hey Bitsy! I apologize for my delay. Thanks for sharing that you enjoy my blog! I’m so happy you’ve found it inspirational. I don’t often teach according to the chakras in yin but energetically any postures that could stimulate the crown of the head or head and neck in general might be good. Since the crown chakra is the final chakra, it also might be wise to do a full body class that builds up to the crown chakra and its energy since we know that lower chakra imbalances can hinder functionality of upper chakras. In terms of specific poses, maybe childs pose to stimulate the 3rd eye (forehead to block/floor), neck/shoulder releases, supported fish pose with the crown dropping back and down to student’s comfort level, etc. Hope that’s helpful to you!

        I will be leading a weekend immersion in the fall (probably November) in the Dallas area. I can also lead that same immersion anywhere if you know of a local studio close to you that might want to host it. Feel free to email me for details nancynelsonyoga @gmail.com

      • Bitsy Merriman

        Thanks, does the immersion offer CEUs with Yoga Alliance? And if you do immersion what number of students is minimum for a studio and maximum for you to teach? Assume immersion is weekend – ie Friday night, all day saturday and most of sunday?

      • nancynelsonadventures

        Hi Bitsy! Yes absolutely. I’m a YACEP with Yoga Alliance and the weekends range from 10-14 hours of credit. I can email you some info related to schedules, minimums and pricing, etc. if you’d like? That’s the easiest way to sort through the details for me!

      • Bitsy Merriman

        Wonderful, email me more details…what you need, how it gets set up, etc. I have two studios where this might work locally and a free place to stay for you!

    • nancynelsonadventures

      Not currently 🙂 I’ve considered doing that and will let you know if I do so in the future. Thanks for stopping by!
