206: Using Grief, Nature & Yoga to Bring Us Into the "Now"

Featuring Nancy Leigh Goodfellow

Nancy road tripped down the coast of Mexico through Central America over 20 years ago before settling in Costa Rica, where her family had already moved to live a different life. Together, they built, sold & built another successful hotel which they now run together in paradise. Nancy was a devout Ashtangi for many years before becoming a certified yoga teacher by popular demand - she was already teaching classes in town because everyone loved her style and there was a huge demand for yoga! After losing her toddler in a car accident 17 years ago, Nancy has learned countless lessons on grief, transformation, the importance of family, community & a support system, and understanding that “what we have is here and now. The more we can open up and be less attached to what is in the future, there’s a deeper sense of happiness.”
