Storm of life"
- Stacey, Leela Yoga
stacey's yoga story
Yoga has been a part of Stacey’s life since 2007. After continually suffering from running injuries she attempted Bikram Yoga for relief in a studio in Coolangatta, Queensland Australia.
After a couple of years of starting and stopping she returned to Bikram to find a balance between her high intensity Crossfit & Run Training. She not only noticed the positive physical effects but also the mental and spiritual.
From this moment she knew she needed this in her life forever. This is when Stacey decided to commit to a 200 hour accreditation in Goa, India.
The training was based in Hatha with the approach of Patanajali's 8 Limbs of Yoga the focus was on classical pranayama, classical asana and classical vinyasa.
Stacey believes by using breath, body and mind to work together we can deepen our connection and experience. Yoga can bring a simple strength and focus to ‘find a way’ through the storm of life.
Vinyasa, Yin, Power, Hatha, Kundalini, Iyengar, Anusara, Jivamukti, Iyengar & Ashtanga are other types of Yoga she has learned and practiced over the last 11 years.
Yoga is an exciting, continuous adventure for Stacey and she is looking forward to learning, sharing and building stronger, connected communities.

Stacey shares from her heart,
In classes you play,
"Words cannot express how deeply we were touched by your gentle voice guiding us through our daily Yoga practice.
Please know that you have made a positive impact in our hearts and a healing/restorative impact in our bodies!"
