Nancy Candea has been practicing yoga and meditation since 1986 and teaching since 1997. She is the director of the International Yoga Therapy Institute, a 1000 hour yoga therapy education school. 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 also the founder and director of Yoga Impact. Through her not-for-profit organization, 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, 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. 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.
