Meet your Facilitators
Nancy Leigh Goodfellow
Nancy Goodfellow began her Yogic studies in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition in 1992 before moving to Costa Rica to follow her dream of living a more simple life in deep connection with nature. Nancy has completed over 500 hours of Yoga Alliance Teacher trainings and has been influenced by various methods and traditions. Yet it has been the challenge of overcoming one of life's greatest tragedies and losses that opened up the inner-door to her heart and has allowed Nancy to infuse and channel her teachings with great compassion, confidence and joy.
Her “Shakti Flow” classes contain a myriad of elements including Tantric techniques and modern expressions of yoga arts, which come together to create a highly educational, physically challenging, and deeply soulful experience. Each class explores not only creative vinyasa sequences guided by principles of alignment, but offers Tantric practices of Mantra, kirtan, pranayama, and other techniques for awakening our inner fire and stabilizing the mind.
Nancy has been practicing Yoga for over 20 years and teaching for more than 15 years. She and her family own and operate Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat on the beach in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica where she teaches daily yoga classes, workshops, teacher trainings, and retreats.
