This class is taught by:

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. 

 

Jaimis Huff

Jaimis, a certified Rocket Vinyasa teacher (E-RYT 500), is dedicated to sharing yoga teachings to empower, love, connect with, and inspire those around her. She has had the great honor of studying with many incredible teachers along the path: Shiva Rea, Maria Garre, Andrew McAuley, Hilly Flora, and Ben Heath. Jaimis is currently studying The Rocket Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa with David C. Kyle. She believes we are all students and all teachers, so she continues her yoga and self-studies at every opportunity. Jaimis is an ambassador for Lululemon Athletica and spends as much time as possible in handstands, the sunshine, living in the moment, and practicing compassion, love, and yoga in all forms. Her classes are powerful yet playful, and always full of opportunities to get upside-down. It’s her wish that students leave feeling inspired and with a deeper sense of trust in who they truly are.

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."

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.
