Stacy journey began when life’s path unexpectedly placed her at the doorway of a local studio, and she instantly fell in love with the practice. Learning to instruct seemed to be a natural way for her to give back some of the peace, joy, and gratitude she received on her own mat, so she received her certification 2014 and immediately began teaching in the community.
