Nancy Samotis is a psychotherapist and yoga instructor who integrates yoga therapeutics into her work with individuals and groups. In 1995, she received her master’s degrees: an MA in Drawing and Painting, an MFA in Intermedia, and an MSW. She then proceeded to a post-graduate fellowship at the Yale Psychiatric Institute.
Upon receiving her RYT from The Elemental Yoga Mind-Body Teach Training Program, Nancy began teaching yoga classes for individuals with anxiety and depression, which evolved into teaching open classes in the community. This led to developing workshops that integrate yoga, classic principles of psychotherapy and mindfulness.
As an artist, educator, psychotherapist and practitioner of yoga therapeutics, Nancy continues to meld her strengths into new opportunities to help others do the same. For over fifteen years she has focused on working with women of all ages, both individually and in group settings.
