Stacy discovered yoga in 2009, while taking dance classes at a small studio and found that yoga was a natural progression from her love of dance. In 2014 she began a regular practice and within about one year, began researching teacher trainings, to deepen her practice and share the benefits of yoga with others. She chose to pursue her 200 hour certification with Erica McHugh at Emmaus Yoga. Also a dance fitness instructor, freelance writer, and writing tutor—Stacy brings a background of both group instruction and one-on-one teaching experience to her classes. Her teaching style is a union of her passion for words and her love of the discipline, rhythm and meditation of yoga.
