Stacey Beth Shulman
Stacey Beth Shulman came to yoga because she was looking for a softer way. For years Stacey had pushed herself hard – physically and emotionally. When the results weren’t as swift or certain as she thought they should be, she would quickly become frustrated and move on to the next big thing that was supposed to fix it all. In her world, if it didn’t happen immediately, it was probably because I wasn’t trying hard enough or doing it the right way. Yoga helped her slow down, find acceptance in the moment, and begin to release her leanings toward perfectionism. This gentle unwinding brings Stacey to an ever deepening understanding of herself and her physical and emotional patterns.
For Stacey, practicing and teaching yoga is an act of creativity and joy. Her classes are a gentle, meditational style with longer held postures using props for support, in order to gain new insight and release old energies in the physical, emotional, and spiritual planes. Stacey believes there are many, many layers to yoga – and in any given class, no two people are ever at exactly the same place. She welcomes students who are new to yoga as well as those with more experience, in the hope that everybody will discover something new about themselves and their abilities.
Stacey received her 200 and 500 hour certifications from Yoganand Michael Carroll. In addition, she is a Certified Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga Facilitator under the supervision of David Emerson. When she is not on the mat, Stacey enjoys reading, art, backyard birdwatching, and, of course, chocolate.
