Nancy Candea has been practicing Yoga and meditation since 1986 and teaching since 1997. Her style of teaching reflects what she has learned from many senior-level teachers in the Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara and Integral styles of Yoga, along with her study of Ayurveda. She is certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapist, and registered with the Yoga Alliance as an experienced Yoga teacher at the 500hr level and as a children’s Yoga teacher. Nancy is the founder and director of Yoga Impact, a 200 hour and 500 hour registered Yoga school, and a former Training Director for Kula for Karma. Finally, she is the director of the International Yoga Therapy Institute, a 1000 Yoga yoga therapy education school.
Through these not-for-profit organisations, Nancy has taught yoga and meditation in jails, shelters and cancer treatment centers, and brought yoga to the under-served: inmates, war veterans, the chronically ill, at-risk youth, the homeless, victims of abuse, those confined to wheelchairs and addicts. She is an Adjunct Professor of Yoga at the College of St. Elizabeth in New Jersey, teaching Yoga to young inner city women and Yoga for nurses, and teaches Yoga therapy in the Women’s Trauma Unit for the Veterans Administration.
After owning a Yoga studio in Hawaii for five years, Nancy moved to Boulder, Colorado and taught Yoga to professional athletes. She currently directs her basic and advanced Yoga teacher trainings and Yoga therapist trainings in Greece, Metro-Detroit, Northern New Jersey and Boulder, Colorado and Hawaii. Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, Yoga Therapy Today, Boulder Magazine, and Natural Awakenings.
