Patti from Brighton MI
I so respect and admire my yoga teacher, Stacey. She is an incredibly gifted teacher, spiritual guide and an amazing person. She shares her passion for yoga, auryvedic medicine, shamanism and energy medicine generously in each class without ever pushing. She is empathic and leads class at a number of levels simultaneously – teaching students about our physical and energy bodies, how to open to the wisdom we have within so that we can love and care for ourselves at increasingly deep levels. From the first moment I entered the studio 2 years ago, I knew I had found a new home. She’s created a space that is loving, peaceful and filled with the most wonderful energy. She begins each class asking students what we want to work on – and accepts anything from a body part to a chakra or meridian to more generally, grounding or increased energy. She creates the class on the spot and offers easy to understand directions. She is always encouraging and accepting. My favorite part of class is the spiritual lesson she weaves into practice – she always seems to be spot on with her story, seemingly reading my mind and heart and giving me exactly what I need in the moment. Practice with Stacey is a spiritual experience. She is constantly learning more herself and uses her learning to deepen the practice she offers to students. She is loving and humble while being honest, funny and real; she is fun to be around and I love to go to her classes – I look forward to them, which has never happened to me before. She is a beautiful example of following her own path - always doing her own work and using her own learning to offer us many opportunities to learn for ourselves. She’s created and is leading an open, free flowing and loving community in her studio. I am a truly changed person from taking advantage of the opportunities and learning she’s provided. I’m pretty experienced is personal and spiritual growth, but Stacey has guided me into a more beautiful relationship with myself, my body, while simultaneously helping me open my heart at a deeper level. She is a brilliant teacher and guide and offers a perfect example of living your dharma.
