ABOUT STACY

Stacy has been a devoted student of yoga for over 20 years and has been teaching for over a decade. She is an E-RYT 500, experienced registered yoga teacher, and completed her 200 hour and 300 hour certifications at Yogaview in Chicago. She has additional certifications in Yoga Therapeutics and Restorative Yoga and has studied and been influenced by many lineages including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Yin. Stacy teaches Vinyasa flow that is rooted in thoughtful sequencing and alignment, conscious movement and breath awareness. She creatively blends her love of music and dynamic sequencing to provide a well-balanced movement experience that is challenging yet accessible and fun. It is her priority to create a space for each student to listen to their own system and be guided by their internal awareness and body's wisdom.  

In addition to teaching yoga, Stacy is a Certified Holistic Health Coach and offers wellness coaching on holistic nutrition and integrating mindfulness and yogic lifestyle principles into daily life. She is also certified in Reiki and Thai Massage, and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Sociology from Indiana University. Her past experience includes operating as Managing Director of Exhale Spa Chicago and then serving as Global Promotions Director for the acclaimed spa brand. Additionally, Stacy is a two time brand ambassador for Lululemon Athletica.

Stacy's approach to teaching, coaching and her own practice is one of openness and compassion. Yoga and meditation have positively impacted every aspect of her life and she is grateful for the opportunity to serve others by sharing the therapeutic and healing benefits of these practices.

Based in Chicago, Stacy teaches group classes at Yogaview and virtually through her Zoom studio. She also offers private yoga lessons, wellness coaching and is the co-founder of Pure Living Yoga Retreats.
