Nancy Firth Connelly Bio:

Nancy has been practicing yoga for over 16 years. After the birth of her youngest daughter, symptoms of depression, fatigue and anxiety consumed her. She also suffered from chronic migraines. Nancy wanted to try the holistic route and decided to take a yoga class. She was instantly hooked. She still struggled with her health issues, but always felt better after her practice.

In 2008, after visiting several doctors and having numerous medical tests, Nancy was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Her body became riddled with pain. She could barely walk and also developed severe sciatica. Nancy felt so alone. She played the victim role and remained unhappy and sedentary for an entire year. One day a friend advised her to try getting back on the mat. Hesitant at first, she found a teacher that taught a more “yin” style of yoga based on the BKS Iyengar method. What Nancy learned was that she had to work through the pain in order to heal. Her wise teacher once told her, “Just because you feel pain in a pose, doesn’t mean it has to be bad.” With consistency of practice, she is now pain free on most days and no longer suffers from migraines and sciatica. After learning the power of yoga’s healing ability, Nancy became a yoga teacher so she could share her life’s experience with others.
