Nannette has practiced yoga and meditation for over thirty five years. As a teenager, long before yoga was popular, Nannette joined her artist mother in yoga and meditation classes. Together they studied Iyengar and much later, ISHTA yoga. Nannette received her certification in Hatha yoga through Yoga With Intention and is a Registered Yoga Teacher with nationally recognized Yoga Alliance. Her teachings focus on building flexibility and strength within the proper alignment while cultivating an open heart. Nannette consistently provides modifications as well as progressions so that all students, from beginners to advanced, are able to find their edge and breathe fully while moving through the poses.
Nannette is trained in HeartMath, a practice of mindfulness and energy management which builds personal resilience. Resilience may be thought of as “the capacity to prepare for, recover from, and adapt to stress, challenge, or adversity.” Nannette enthusiastically shares her HeartMath practice with her students as it is a tangible way to take their yoga off the mat and into daily life.
Nannette teaches group classes and private sessions in Westchester County, New York and in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Reset and Restore Yin
This is a slow, meditative yoga class designed to help the practitioner find ease in moments of stillness. Prop-enhanced poses are held for several minutes at a time to encourage passive stretching. Yin yoga promotes relaxation of the muscles allowing release of deep layers of connective tissue and fascia. Great for all levels including beginning students and for those seeking deep relaxation and increased flexibility.
Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation techniques (dyana) to cultivate a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. A consistent Hatha practice develops a supple spine, strong core, and increased flexibility and balance. Pranayama and meditation help to improve respiratory function, boost the immune system, reduce stress and anxiety levels, and promote an overall sense of well being. All levels welcome.
