Nancy Bernhard

For decades I ran to relieve stress, but when my knees began to resist, I tried out an Iyengar yoga studio a few blocks from my apartment. I went to weekly classes for two years, learning fundamentals of alignment and breath, which kept me running awhile longer.

Nicola Francis

My relationship with yoga started in 2005, as a way to bring movement into my corporate professional life. It wasn’t until years later, through the weight of life’s obstacles, that I realized the profound impact yoga had on my heart, mind and overall well being. Yoga has been a way for me to slow down, connect inward and begin the process of choosing to live fully. Gratefully embracing all of the joy and challenge in this life, learning and unlearning as I go.
