Nancy Sinton (C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, MBA)
As a yoga therapist and founder of Breathlink Yoga Therapy, Nancy is deeply passionate about inspiring people to manage their mental and physical health using the tools and techniques of yoga and mindfulness. People normally reach out to Nancy because they are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, and pain or going through a major life change.
One client described her as “extremely knowledgeable and caring” while another declared her to be “filled with loving presence and joy”. The one-to-one private sessions, in-person 8 Week Courses and her online course “How to Manage Anxiety Using Yoga Breathing Practices” are all designed to help people experience a deeper more joyful experience of life.
When she’s not helping people through yoga therapy, you can find Nancy enjoying nature through long walks, golfing and relaxing on the beach.
“I inspire people to discover their intrinsic power to heal. I also educate healthcare professionals to value yoga therapy as a recognized and respected therapy and a complementary approach to their practices.”
Allow me to introduce myself. I began practicing yoga in 1998. I have been teaching yoga since 2006.
I started Yoga For Your Health in 2013 and changed the name to Breathlink Yoga Therapy in 2014.
The focus of my yoga therapy is working with people who are going through major life changes. That might be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual change. Every stage of life has its challenges. Some people ride these waves with ease and others take detours which include stress, anxiety and depression.
Through personal experience I have found yoga to help me navigate this interesting path.
