“Stacey is a thoughtful and skilled teacher. Every pose she guides you through has a purpose, and she takes care to tie poses back to functional movements that help you in your everyday life. I’ve learned something new in every one of Stacey’s classes, and would highly recommend her classes to anyone who wants to feel better in and outside of yoga class.”
“Stacey is a one-of-a-kind teacher who recognizes each student and adapts her classes to serve all levels. Her classes have a patient and thoughtful sequence that helps you feel confident and move safely through poses. I would recommend her to any person wanting to learn more about yoga, or about themselves!”
Maria, San Francisco
“Stacey is a rare teacher in that she is wholly dedicated to both her practice and her students. I cannot recommend her enough to both people overcoming injury or individuals with advanced ability.”
DYNAMIC ALIGNMENT CLASSES
“I’ve been attending Stacey’s classes for over a year. Stacey has a deep understanding of human anatomy and the yogic practice. Her classes build strength and body awareness while promoting healthy muscles and joints. The result is improved pose alignment and stamina. My body now understands how to move properly, and this has helped me live pain-free.”
“I love Stacey’s Hatha Alignment class! I drive all the way from Sonoma, CA because I know that my body is in for a treat. Her classes are designed to help you engage your muscles (especially your core!) and use them properly in order to find stability in a more challenging pose. She constructs her classes to undo the postures we are typically in all day (like sitting or hunching over our phones). My favorite part is savasana or resting pose at the end of class because I truly feel relaxed after engaging my mind and my body. Be sure to take one of her classes soon!”
“Most notable about Stacey is her unique ability to lead classes with this unicorn combination of precision and exactness, along with exploration and unfolding. She takes students through this precise and particular journey that leads us to discover profound and foundational things about our bodies, hearts, and minds. On the surface, Stacey’s classes are about practical and functional mobility (critical to our day-to-day lives) and building true strength (hello, core!), but just beneath the surface, they offer teachings about what it means to be human today, and to be human together. Stacey’s deep caring and service to her students and community is the true embodiment of yoga; I find myself inspired by her way of being on and off the mat and am forever thankful to practice with and learn from her.” Lizzie A.
“Before yoga, I was focused on endurance sports and ignored regular pain in my lower back and knees. Through Stacey, I learned ways to pay attention to what my body needs and to practice the poses that help me stay balanced and move through the world with ease, instead of with aches and pains.” Maria C.
YOGA TUNE UP® CLASSES
“Stacey’s Yoga Tune Up® classes have been instrumental in deepening my understanding of my body, how it moves, and in building strength, balance, and awareness. I find that I can integrate the work we do in Tune Up into my asana practice and in dance. It also informs the way I move through the world. Stacey is an engaging and articulate teacher and I highly recommend the Yoga Tune Up® class, and any of her other classes, to those who want to deepen their practice on every level.” Vanessa D.
“Yoga Tune Up® Self Care with Stacey Rosenberg is incredible! Her instruction is clear and concise. Whatever area of the body she is focusing on, when I leave I feel as if that part of my body is functioning at its absolute best. It is a definitive must if you are a yoga teacher, or a yoga practitioner, or simply a human being! Not only will you leave feeling sensational, but you will have a greater understanding of how your body works.” Brenna B.
“After struggling with chronic stress-related pain and stiffness in my neck, back, legs and feet, Stacey empowered me to heal myself with Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls. It’s amazing how powerful these tiny rubber balls can be when a gifted healer and teacher like Stacey teaches you how to use them. When they become your daily routine, it’s like getting a professional massage every day!” Anna G.
“Working with the Yoga Tune Up® method not only feels amazing but has also given me a powerful tool to better understand my body. Through active exploration using therapy balls, I’m able to identify weaker areas and utilize movement and pressure to release tension from my body. I feel more grounded, healthier and more empowered to understand and take care of myself.” Sarah B.
“Stacey Rosenberg’s Yoga Teacher Training is by far the best thing that I have done! With incredible expertise, insights, and warmth, Stacey artfully weaves philosophy, anatomy, sequencing, and theming together in a powerful way, while creating a nurturing environment to encourage students to confidently take the seat of the teacher. Through the class, I deepened my own practice, learned the incredible art of teaching, and gained self- confidence as a teacher.”
Janey, San Francisco
“Stacey offers a comprehensive 200 Yoga Teacher Training with a focus on alignment. She is a very dedicated, knowledgeable, and approachable teacher, who creates an inspiring learning experience for her students. Stacey’s training provides the knowledge and skill set necessary to teach a safe, aligned and sustainable yoga practice.” Allison K.
“Our teacher training with Stacey was rigorous and fun. Her deep knowledge of anatomy and body mechanics underpin all of her teaching, so her explanations of how to instruct poses safely and build satisfying sequences really make sense. Plus, she has a knack for integrating philosophy and the spiritual aspects of yoga in an approachable way. Best of all, you can tell that she really cares and is excited to help you deepen your understanding of yoga. I found the training personally empowering and a great foundation for becoming a teacher.” Kaitlin Q.
“I really appreciate your enthusiasm for teaching and preparedness you bring to the Yoga Tree 200-hour Teacher Training. Your class always feels very thoughtful and I love the way that you weave yoga philosophy into each class. Whether in the form of myths or teaching us Sanskrit, I feel like it deepens my learning and increases my curiosity to learn more. I also respect the way that you honor the role of teacher and student. Thank you for challenging us and helping us explore the asanas in new ways. I’m thankful that you are one of our teachers!” Zea C.
“I’ve had the most amazing journey within Stacey’s trainings! I was fortunate to discover her when she taught the Alignment portion of my 50-hour Advanced Teacher Training. It was amazing how she made such a difficult topic like anatomy accessible through experiential learning. Because of her enthusiasm about being present through awareness of one’s own body, I was drawn to join her Group Mentorship program. I highly recommend Stacey for any teacher to continue their education.” Renee C.
“Taking a 6-month immersion with Stacey was an incredible experience. I learned tools that I still take with me today: to my yoga practice at home, after a long drive or flight, and which help me continue to enjoy the sports that I love out in nature. Not only have I evolved into someone who is more connected to my body, I believe in my own potential to a greater extent than I ever thought possible.”
“I’ve been fortunate enough to practice and learn with Stacey for several years. In 2016 I did a 6-month immersion with her where I deepened my yoga practice and learned daily health tools I’ve used ever since. Stacey is an excellent teacher and guide who has helped me gain physical and emotional strength on and off the mat.” Kate T.
“A Yoga immersion is a personal journey to the deepest parts of oneself. Through Stacey’s instruction and guidance, I feel that I have become more capable of glimpsing the deepest part of my potential, both in my body and in my heart. No other teacher has been able to offer me the gifts of my own empowerment to embrace all of myself fully, even my limitations, and to allow myself to inspire others to also do so. I bow to her as one of my most profound teachers.”
Andrea, San Francisco
“The experience was perfect, it was beautiful, simple, and spiritual all at once. What I call the ‘Stacey effect’ infused the whole experience, not just the great yoga, but your gentle wisdom, the people you attract, and your own warm, supportive ways. Two-hours of yoga twice a day for a basically non-practicing New York workaholic sounded like a lot but I loved every minute of it. I felt better after every class and looked forward to more and in the end I felt immeasurably better for having been there.”
Deb, Brooklyn, NY
“International yoga retreats and yoga tours are a great way to travel. As a solo traveler, yoga travel appeals to me because I have an instant group of friends with whom I can share the travel experience. I found this to be true once again when I spent two weeks on a spectacular yoga tour with Stacey in Bali.”
Bobbi, Seattle, WA
“The retreat I took with Stacey took both my travel experience and my practice to a different level. In yoga, she has the ability to identify each student’s mode of learning and zero in on what will quickly take them to the next level in their practice. The most unique thing about a retreat with Stacey is Stacey herself. She attracts a diverse group of people making for lively meal and travel conversation. The daily activities she plans, for both large and small groups, are cultural, active, and fun. And she has the unique ability to be a mentor and friend, while flawlessly planning and orchestrating fabulously unique travel experiences.”
Paula, Atlanta, GA
“Stacey’s retreats are truly the best vacations. They have taken my yoga practice to the next level. And more importantly, I leave feeling completely transformed, rejuvenated and with new friends and wonderful memories.”
“When I first met Stacey, I had been recovering from an injury that limited my physical ability. Since working with Stacey in a private setting, I have seen a significant difference in my life. Not only did she teach me poses and exercises specific to my needs during our sessions, but she also empowered me with further resources to improve my health.”
“To deepen my yoga practice I added weekly private sessions with Stacey. She is truly a gifted, intuitive healer and teacher. Each session, she knew what my body needed and guided me to a better place including what I needed to work on to do to build my practice. I highly recommend her.”
“When I started working with Stacey a year ago I was often bedridden with debilitating pain and unable to move. I had ruptured discs, stenosis, and facet syndrome, all war wounds from years of being a professional ballet dancer with the San Francisco Ballet. At 59 years of age, the injuries finally caught up with me the MD specialists advised back surgery as the only way to repair the damage the MRI depicted.
Stacey started teaching me how to move inside my body, with micro movements and exercises designed to slowly strengthen and stretch my muscles. It was careful work, as the smallest wrong move could trigger intense spasming. It was the beginning of a long journey to build flexibility and strength, to relearn how to move, and to leave behind the world of pain and fear.
Now, one year later, not only can I walk, but am able to work again as a contractor. Stacey is a true healer. I imagine always working with her as she continues to find new ways for me to move and live in my body. Now I live without pain, which I once was sure would never happen for me again. Thank you, Stacey, words can never reflect my gratitude.”
“Stacey is a professional and dedicated yoga practitioner and instructor. I suffer from four herniated discs and stenosis and Stacey’s guidance and instruction have given me a great deal of space and added support. I find her to be extremely aware of individual needs and most patient with one’s learning curves. Her ability to think outside the box and draw from many modalities is particularly useful and has helped me find more space and freedom in my body.”
CONTINUING EDUCATION + MENTORSHIP FOR YOGA TEACHERS
“Stacey Rosenberg’s continuing education workshops for teachers have been a tremendous help for my own practice and for my planning my beginner and intermediate classes. The way Stacey teaches is direct, practical, and useful. I have been loving her deep knowledge of alignment; her philosophy of teaching to make any class work for any level of students; and her beautiful connection with each one of us in the group. I am thankful to have the opportunity to learn from her. I would recommend these teacher workshops to anyone who wants to improve as a teacher. THANK YOU STACEY!”
DOLORES, MORGAN HILL
“I am super inspired by your teaching. It’s clear you have a depth of knowledge of how the body moves and works. I’ve been doing hair for 21 years and I can see you have been doing this work as long; I recognize that inherent understanding of craft! I want to soak up your knowledge and I can’t wait for more.”
Cindy Lou K.
“I’ve studied with Stacey for two years; her guidance and mentorship were a highlight of my 500-hour yoga teacher certification and had a profound impact on my confidence as a teacher. With Stacey’s insights and encouragement, both my teaching and my personal practice are now more skillful, informed, nuanced, and authentic. I appreciate her knowledgeable and precise instruction alongside her humor and very clear love of sharing yoga with others. I’m as strong and deeply embodied as I’ve ever been and look forward to continued studies with her. I can’t recommend her mentorship highly enough!”
“I’ve studied with Stacey in several yoga teacher trainings. Her one-on-one mentoring equipped me with the skills I need to be a teacher who can meet the students’ needs regardless of their practice and body needs. One of the things I learned was skillful sequencing. And it really shows in my teaching because my own students keep coming back to my classes for more.”
ONLINE COURSES FOR YOGA TEACHERS
“Just thinking about all the sequencing tips you talked about and it has really opened my eyes and has made so much more sense to my lesson planning. My students have definitely noticed, everyone was amazed that they had achieved the ‘maha’ pose so easily. LOVING this course!!!”
“In spite of having had several sequencing trainings in the past Stacey’s teleseminar is what finally brought things home for me. Her clear, intelligent and progressive approach gave me a formula that works for me while still allowing my own personal style and expression to shine through. I am so glad I did this and highly recommend both new and seasoned teachers! Thanks, Stacey.”
“Stacey’s Asana Sequencing Teleseminar was a smashing success! I learned even more about creating kick-ass sequences for all levels of students. Stacey is masterful at sequencing!”
“Stacey, thank you so much for the sequencing course, I learned heaps. My students attend classes only once a week so progress is a lot slower. I have found since doing your sequencing course and working up to a maha pose they are getting to a deeper level.” MAGGIE, IRELAND
“Stacey’s Yoga 101 teleseminar was full of practical and usable tips and information. I have been postponing creating my own yoga 101 workshop and after taking Stacey’s seminar I finally set the date and feel ready! The printouts are great, not only for me but also to share with my students. I have taken a few other courses on how to teach yoga to beginners and I found Stacey’s to be the most comprehensive and information-packed of them all! I can clearly tell she has tons of experience teaching beginners as well as students of all levels. Thank you Stacey!”
