This class is taught by:

Troy Haywood

Growing up as a competitive dancer, Troy has always been passionate about self-expression and self-awareness through body movement. After graduating high-school in 2007, Troy moved to Miami, Florida to pursue a career as a dancer which led him to travel all over the world, from Los Angeles to New York to Barcelona to Portugal. It was not until he settled back down at home in Charlotte that he discovered yoga and a brand new outlook on his life.

In 2011, Troy took his first yoga class in hopes to supplement his dance training as he was beginning to shift his focus from performing to teaching. His practice not only began opening his mind to new ways of moving but also new ways of reaching out and connecting with the kids he taught. With this new insight, Troy began diving deeper into his yoga practice over the next seven years.

Since then Troy has gone on to complete is 200-Hour RYT and is excited to begin marrying his love of teaching dance with his love of yoga. Troy’s classes are sure to bring out your playful side all while challenging you and keeping the focus on what yoga is all about for him: connection over competition, always.

Stacy Thompson

Stacy began practicing yoga in the summer of 2006, just a few days after graduating college. She began studying yoga at home with the help of books and DVDs, then attended her first studio class a few months later. Over the next few years, Stacy moved around a lot. However, her yoga practice remained a constant anchor. She practiced different styles of yoga all across the country. After moving to Charlotte, Stacy received her 200-hour RYT certification through Melody White and Greg Labarbera in May 2010 on her 26th birthday. Stacy teaches Samdaana Yoga (developed by Melody White) as well as vinyasa classes, allowing her to develop and share her own sequences, which she is particularly passionate about. She shares, “Yoga gives you back what you put in and more, but the benefits can take time to manifest themselves, and often in ways you hadn’t even imagined. Sometimes you have to surrender a little to truly receive. This is why I know I’ll practice yoga for the rest of my life.” When she’s not doing yoga, Stacy enjoys cooking and exploring the Charlotte food scene (she is a trained chef), reading, writing, running, traveling, music, and looking for reasons to laugh. 

 

Maria Lages

Maria was born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in the mountains of Minas Gerais, Brazil. She opened Om Yoga in 2010. Maria completed her first 200 hour Yoga Certification with her beloved teacher, Grace Morales, in 2008. She traveled to India to study Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore with V. Sheshadri in 2012, completed a 500hr certification with Johnna Smith in 2015, and her Prenatal Yoga Certification with Amani Murray in 2017. Maria credits her entrepreneurial success to being incredibly passionate about making a difference in other people's lives. She encourages everyone who is a part of the Om Yoga community to incorporate and convey values such as compassion, mindfulness, integrity, and purpose in their daily work and in their relationships with others. "My goal is to provide a peaceful and supportive space for people to breathe, move, and connect." 

 

Devon Racz

Devon was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to Charlotte in 2013. She has been an avid marathon runner for 15 years and turned to yoga in 2013 while struggling to get pregnant. Her love for the practice has continued to grow over the years and she fulfilled her goal of completing teacher training with Jaimis Huff and Jennifer Busco in 2017. She loves to flow, sweat, and get upside down whenever she can. She also loves spending time with her twins, husband, and dog. Devon credits the practice for getting her through a tough pregnancy, recovery, a stressful job, and being a busy working mom of twins. Devon is a medical sales executive in South Carolina and has a passion for health and wellness.
