Mighty Yogi of the Month: November 2016


Name: Nancy Webster

Favorite yoga pose: Half Moon or Triangle

Yoga is...a process that is always evolving.

How do you serve the world?
In addition to being a Mighty desk staffer, I am a Waste Reduction & Recycling Specialist, so I educate people and implement programs to reduce waste. I'm also a Master Composter and can be found at festivals making sure food scraps get a happy home in a compost pile. I love cooking and sharing food and exploring beauty around the world.

What do you love most about your yoga practice?
I always finish in a better place than when I started. I love the process of self acceptance, balancing strength and grace, and focusing my mind and body in new ways. Feeling accomplished is pretty great too.

What fuels you? Nature, movement, and delicious local foods

My NON-guilty pleasure is...napping. I'm lucky to be able to fall asleep most anywhere.

What makes you Mighty? Dedication and empathy

What’s your yoga story?  How did you start practicing?
I took a yoga class in college that didn't really spark anything for me. Then a few years ago, I started running and knew I needed to strengthen my core and respect my body in all the ways to stay strong and avoid injury. I did a few classes at Mighty with friends, which broke my fear of practicing in a studio, then got sucked in during birthday week last year. I felt stronger and was sleeping better (both important for running and for life). The bliss and mindfulness was exactly what was missing from my self-care and the Mighty community was what kept me coming back.

If you had a superpower what would it be and why? I'm already super powerful :-)

When I wake up in the morning, I always do these two things... stretch and then cuddle my two adorable kittens
