Nancy Burtenshaw

Nancy has been a dedicated and passionate yoga practitioner since 2000 and a teacher since 2007. In 2011 she opened Nourish Yoga in Moscow, Idaho where she was studio co-owner, director and lead teacher for over five years helping create a vibrant community that continues today now as Kula Yoga.  Over the years Nancy has completed numerous immersions and teacher trainings and has been blessed to have trained with highly skilled and insightful teachers including Baron Baptiste, Tiffany Wood, Karen Sprute-Francovich, Christina Sell, Darren Rhodes, Jason Crandell and Noah Maze. Nancy received her first RYT 200 with Baron Baptiste; her second RYT 200 in the Anusara® School of Hatha Yoga lineage which she continues to study today; and her advanced teacher training (RYT 500) with Noah Maze in 2014 which super-charged everything. Nancy has also pursued specialized training in Prenatal, Restorative Yoga and recently in iRest Yoga Nidra (she is an iRest Teacher-in-Training).   

As a teacher, Nancy creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere and delivers a steady, grounded practice that is encouraging, supportive and challenging. She has an eye for detail and alignment and provides instructions that are accessible and inspired so that before you know it you’ll be nudging past your growth edge and doing something you never thought was possible. To Nancy, teaching yoga is a privilege and she continually feels honored to witness students become more self-confident, self-compassionate and courageous on their mat and in their lives.

The way I find sanity is by being at home in my own body which I find through the practices of yoga and meditation, as well as taking time in nature and being off the grid. I am a true foodie and love spending time in good company with family and friends foraging, preparing and eating nourishing and savory food.

We always introduce ourselves to our neighbors, and the regulars all know each other. It enhances the practice to be in community and to celebrate our practice together. There is a feeling of familiarity and sometimes ritual that really lends itself to a holistic and fulfilling practice.
