I have been instructing Yoga classes since 2003 after attending my first YogaFit Conference in Alexandria, Virginia.  Over the last 15 years I have acquired training in many areas of Yoga ranging from Seniors, Kids, Core, Anatomy & Alignment, Arial and many more.  My Yoga classes are student driven, meaning I tailor the practice to what my clients may be needing.   From years of Personal Training experience and having a thorough knowledge of how the body, my classes provide a safe and effective atmosphere to help the body and mind ease into poses and reap tremendous benefits from Yoga.

Power Yoga & Yoga for Athletes

Additionally I have traveled throughout the country in the summer providing Ice Hockey specific Yoga classes at camps.  I have worked with a wide variety of athletes from pro’s, college and amateur youth.  My athletic specific classes also include Fascial Stretch Therapy & Mobility exercises to allow the athletes to reap many benefits in my sessions.

I am a 200 Registered Yoga Teacher and have recently completed Baptiste Journey into Power Yoga training to add another level of expertise to my Yoga classes.  This training culminates all of the experience I have by adding a more vigorous and powerful strength based methodology as the foundation.  “Power Yoga trains the whole body, it embodies strength, flexibility, stabilization, stamina, cardio, and mind power all in one sessions.” Journey into Power, Baron Baptiste

What a huge difference i see in my goaltenders after spending just a few days with you at my 2018 Elite Goalie Camp in Alexandria, Minnesota.  Flexibility is up and injuries are way down, and that is a direct result of your training.  I have added yoga to all my goaltending camps, and am now suggesting that all my goalies do yoga both during the season and especially in the offseason.  I look forward to having you return to my 2019 Camps in Alexandria, Minnesota this year!

Dryland Training and development is just as important to our team as on-ice practice.  As a result of working on core training with Stacy, our team has seen a significant reduction in injuries as well as an increase in their core strength.  Increasing core strength has likewise resulted in players having better balance on their skates, which is essential in a sport as delicate yet physical as hockey.  Stacy has also shown a great ability to adjust to different situations, which is important to teach to pro hockey players who are used to a daily routine.  She is well respected by the players, and continues to push them to their limits every time they work together.
