Meet our Team


Hello, I began teaching yoga in January of 2018. In June of 2018 I earned my 200 RTY and yogahour certification from Namaste School of Yoga in Grafton, ND. I turned 50 years old this year and believe that yoga is essential to healthy aging. I love creating a peaceful environment for people to come to relax and enjoy the amazing benefits of a regular yoga practice.


I graduated from the Ropa, India campus of the Himalayan Yoga Institute in October, 2016. I have been classically trained in the art of Raja Di Raja Yoga, at the Himalayan Yoga Institute in India. I teach classical yoga with an emphasis on building strength, improving balance and flexibility. I teach with a focus on safe alignment, and addressing the needs of my students. I am currently a Yoga Therapist-in training.


I have been practicing yoga on and off during my life but seriously got into it around 2014 when I found a teacher, Stacy Sandler, who introduced me to the study of yoga and directed me to my YTT at the Yoga Loft with Mary-Beth Nehl. I did my 200 hour there. While studying I made the choice to further my studies and went to Rishikesh, India for 2 months to further my studies and get my 300 hour certification. I have been teaching since 2015. I enjoy teaching smaller classes and one on one sessions. I focus on alignment to prevent injury during class and outside of it.

Staci, RN, CHTP

Certified Healing Touch Practitioner

Staci has been sharing healing touch energy therapy with clients for over 10 years.  Her strength is developing a connection with others and creating a safe and nurturing environment to support the person’s innate ability to heal itself. 

“I believe in assessing a person’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health during each session.  This enables a person to experience a sense of balance as we address the condition that triggered the person to seek care”

Staci has used healing touch to treat those who are dealing with anxiety and depression, acute or chronic pain, insomnia, headaches and immune system disorders.  She also finds benefit in using healing touch to help prepare a person prior to surgery and to support their healing following surgery.  Staci has worked with client’s of all ages.
