Stacey began practicing yoga nearly six years ago as a way to relieve aches and pains associated with a lifetime of high impact sports and running. She wanted a workout that would feel good in her body and that she could practice throughout her life. What she found was so much more. While she initially came to yoga for the physical side, the emotional and spiritual benefits are what really spoke to her.
Stacey earned her RYT-200 from Asheville Yoga Center in July of 2019. Her favorite style of yoga is a powerful vinyasa flow, but she has come to appreciate Restorative Yoga, Yin, and meditation.
Stacey gives gratitude to her mentor and friend, Jamie Forbes, and her husband Alex, who has helped her along this path and encouraged her to chase her dreams. She is very excited to begin this new adventure as a yoga teacher and studio owner.
In addition to her new endeavor as a studio owner and Yoga teacher, Stacey is an Exceptional Children’s teacher of 16 years. She is forever changed and humbled by her students’ inner light, strength, and perseverance in the face of life’s obstacles.
Stacey’s Yoga Philosophy
Stacey believes Yoga is a journey, and the path to Yoga looks different for everyone. It began as a physical necessity, a means to an end–with that end being staying in shape and healing her body. She never expected it to heal her heart and soul. Through the connection of movement to breath and newfound awareness, Yoga has brought a sense of balance and peace to her life. It is teaching her to accept her weaknesses and encourages her to confront her fears, but most importantly, it is teaching her to love herself.
Humbled Warriors Yoga was established to share the transformative power of yoga with her family, friends, and community. She truly believes yoga is for everyone. Whether you want to push yourself physically, or you just need to stop and breath, Yoga has a way of giving you exactly what you need.
