Yoga and mindfulness educator, Stacy Dockins, has dedicated over 25 years of her life to studying the human body and teaching yoga. Her immense understanding of the science and practice of yoga is supported by her Bachelor’s of Science and certifications in 500 Hour E-RYT, Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM-CES), and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP). She is currently pursuing her Mater's of Science with dual concentrations in Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Exercise Psychology at A. T. Still University.
Stacy recently developed her first book, Embodied Posture, which empowers readers to align yoga postures to best suit one’s bio-individuality. This innovative perspective combines body awareness, science, and exploration, lending practical tools and information that can be immediately applied to the mat.

When they aren’t out exploring backroads on their bikes, Stacy and Dave might be at home cooking, reading, or practicing together. They have three grown children.
