Stacie Ramsey has been practicing and teaching yoga for over 20 years. She is passionate about yoga and sharing its profound effects on mind, body and spirit! She is certified in four different styles of yoga, including Bikram Yoga which she discovered in Aspen in 2002.
Stacie knew immediately that she resonated with the Bikram practice and wanted to teach it. As a lover of sports and a very active person herself, she quickly recognized the numerous benefits and therapeutic aspects of the Bikram series and wanted to share them with others. She also appreciated that the practice was accessible to everyone regardless of age, weight, health, or physical limitations. Leaving her telecommunications job in 2002 to attend training in Los Angeles, Stacie became a certified Bikram Yoga instructor in 2003 and began teaching full time. She continues to love the practice and reap its tremendous health benefits.
And while Stacie has earned Yoga Alliance’s highest credentials as an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500-hour level, she continues to explore various forms of yoga, meditation and exercise to enhance her teaching and expand her knowledge. To that end, Stacie underwent Inferno Hot Pilates High Intensity Interval training (HIIT) in May 2017 to obtain her HIIT certification.
She emphasizes the fundamentals of breath, body awareness, being present and overcoming self-imposed limitations. One of her most fulfilling moments as a teacher is when students discover something new and unexpected about themselves.
Stacie lives with her husband, Wayne Henderson, in Madison, NJ. They love to be active, scuba dive and travel the world exploring other cultures.
