Stacey began practicing yoga nearly 13 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 and her 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Sonda Yoga in 2023. 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 Yoga teachers Jamie Forbes and Lois Cromwell, and her husband Alex, who have helped her along this path and encouraged her to chase her dreams.
Stacey’s Yoga Philosophy
To Stacey, yoga represents a personal journey, and its route varies for each individual. Initially, it was solely a physical requirement, a method to maintain fitness and recover her body. Unexpectedly, it evolved into a remedy for her emotional well-being. By linking movement with breath and embracing mindfulness, yoga has introduced balance and serenity into her world. It’s guiding her to embrace vulnerabilities, confront anxieties, and, above all, to cultivate self-love.
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.
