Meet Our Family

Yoga in ME is a family affair. Mother and daughter, Nancy and Lydia Garnhart, first opened the doors of Yoga in ME in 2013 with lots of support and help from the rest of our family.

When you walk in the doors of Yoga in ME, you will feel the love that’s gone into creating this healing space.

Nancy Garnhart, co-owner and director

Nancy has been teaching yoga since 2005. She first started a serious yoga practice to ease the stress of parenting three young children, running a household and being a full time graduate student. Yoga brought the craziness in her head down to a dull roar and helped to cultivate a sense of calm empowerment in her life. Back pain that had often prevented her from enjoying life disappeared.  Nancy uses the practice of yoga in all areas of her life. She endeavors to be mindful and compassionate whether she is teaching yoga, walking in the woods, spending time with family, or gardening.

Nancy is a 500 hour graduate of The Hard & The Soft Yoga Institute with Beryl Bender Birch, a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, and a certified Yoga Therapist with IAYT. She enjoys adapting yoga to fit the students, not the students to fit yoga. She especially loves to teach brand new beginner classes, classes for “Boomers” and a weekly free yoga class for veterans.

Lydia Garnhart, co-owner and studio manager

Lydia has been practicing yoga since 2006. Initially she began her practice for the physical experience. After the birth of her first child, she began to enjoy yoga for the spiritual and emotional benefits that it brings to her life. Lydia enjoys a dynamic, physical practice but loves to center her practice and her classes around the breath. She brings her lighthearted sense of humor to her teaching, reminding herself and her students not to take yoga too seriously! She is passionate about “real food” cooking, green living, and spending time with her daughters: Lilliana, Zinnia, and Sabriel.

Mike Weaver, Possum Support

Having had a desultory relationship with yoga for many years, Mike began to study the Astanga tradition with Nancy Garnhart in 2006 and with Beryl Bender Birch in 2012.  Mike is a 200 hour graduate of The Hard & The Soft Yoga Institute. . When Mike is not practicing yoga, he enjoys playing Princess Jasmine with his grand-daughters and taking care of and counting his chickens.
