Stacee Finkelstein

Yoga and Meditation Instructor

Hi! My name is Stacee and I’m the owner of Stamaste. Stamaste is a yogic lifestyle company that creates a warm, safe, serene space for anyone who wishes to start yoga or deepen their yoga practice I was inspired to explore yoga by my grandmother. Within a year of starting my personal yoga practice, I began to notice subtle shifts in the way that I carried myself, my posture, and my overall confidence. Inspired by these internal transformations, I took my first 200-hour yoga teacher training program in 2015. I am currently an E-RYT 500 hour instructor, trained in Hatha and vinyasa yoga. I began studying Hatha and vinyasa yoga under seasoned teacher, Faith Hunter. I would continue on my yoga path to attend pranayama and meditation retreats, deepening my spiritual connection to the practice of yoga and to myself. I have also attended many sequencing workshops, in which I explored how to create a unique sequence to elevate my future yoga classes. After achieving my 500-hour certification, I have learned innovative and creative methods of designing an enlightening experience for my students, utilizing meditation, yoga Nidra, pranayama, kriyas, mudras, chants, and mantras. I was also trained in kundalini yoga by combining postures, breathing, eye-focus, hand positions, and meditation to strengthen the body and uplift the spirit. My advanced teacher training also prepared me for chakra healing and chakra sequencing. I am so excited to continue on this journey of yoga and deepen her knowledge of advanced yoga sequencing and theory not only for my students but also for myself. As I continue to progress through my yoga journey, I connect deeply to the mental and emotional powers of this practice. I weave my experiences with yoga throughout my teachings, inspiring others to connect with more than just the physical practice, connecting with the true depth of yoga.
