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.
Pam is an RYT-200 (certified in 2013) and a Certified Reiki Practitioner / Energy Healer who has been practicing yoga since 2000. Her true passion is helping others find relief from suffering so that they may fully experience joy in all its forms. Yoga provided deep peace and acceptance during a time of severe depression when she first began practicing, and has since then continued to offer her an opportunity to practice mindful and present living daily. Her attention to the details of alignment in the poses provides a strong practice base for her students, especially those who have dealt with injuries in the past. Pam lives in Fort Mill with her youngest daughter Taylor, in a 216 square foot "tiny house" and is loving the minimalist lifestyle!
