Nancy Chernoff left the corporate world, where she had worked for 25 years, to become a certified firewalking trainer and empowerment seminar leader.
Her life took this dramatic turn in 1996, when she was part of training seminar with Anthony Robbins, a popular life coach, self-help author, and motivational speaker. From 2002 to 2005, Chernoff studied and worked at Omega, where she trained to become a yoga teacher and Reiki practitioner.
In 2005, she joined Omega Teen Camp and dedicated her summer to working with 170 teenagers. One night at the camp, a group of facilitators from the Netherlands was brought in to lead an empowerment program that ended with a firewalk. The energy, the power, and the excitement of that evening hearkened back to Chernoff’s first awakening experience almost 10 years before, and she realized then that it was time to integrate her professional experience with her holistic training.
Chernoff studied with Peggy Dylan and her team at the Sundoor School of Transpersonal Education in California, where she became a certified firewalking instructor. She is also a certified yoga instructor in Interdisciplinary Yoga trained by the Nosara Yoga Institute.
Chernoff now leads Fearlessflame Empowerment Workshops throughout North America.
