Yancy took his first yoga class in the Dominican Republic while on a skate tour. He initially loved yoga because it improved his skating.

In 2008, at the encouragement of the founder, Yancy completed the Yoga to the People 200 hour Teacher Training in New York. He proceeded to help open and build Yoga to the People in San Francisco in 2009. In 2011 he moved back to New York where he began practicing with Sri Dharma Mittra. He completed Dharma Mittra’s 500 hour Life of a Yogi Teacher training in 2013. Later in 2013 he completed the 50 hour Rocket Certification at Asta Yoga in San Francisco.

Yancy currently resides and teaches in Los Angeles, California. He believes that through the yoga practices and techniques we can free ourselves from the constraints of the body and the mind.
