Karma is our Dharma ~ Stacey created Shanti Shala  as a scared space for those looking to improve mental, emotional, and physical health.  


Stacey is a yoga practitioner who has recovered from depression and anxiety through utilizing  holistic remedies such as yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, and EFT. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge and the gifts she has received through yoga to help others who are suffering. In addition to her yoga teacher training in Shiva Rea's Prana Vinyasa program where the embodiment of the practice is based on the roots of yoga, the art and science of movement and wellness for vitality and the deep honoring of our sacred earth,  she has also completed advanced Yoga Psychology study with Ashley Turner.  She is a certified EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) practitioner and as an Ayurvedic  practitioner has spent years in disciplined and sacred study in the ancient holistic healing science of Ayurveda, LifeForce yoga, depth psychology, meditation and neuroscience.

Stacey is also a certified and experienced Pilates instructor who believes that movement is medicine.  She offers all levels of public group classes and private Pilates instruction at Right Balance Pilates studio ~ right next door to Shanti Shala!

When not in the Pilates or yoga studio, you can find Stacey enjoying the waters of Lewes Beach with her two sons and water-loving and registered therapy dog, Hunter.


Hunter is Stacey's constant companion, assistant, and registered therapy dog.

Hunter came to Stacey as a twelve week old pup in desperate need of rescue.  He was scrawny and malnourished as Stacey lovingly referred to him as her, "little bag of bones."  Hunter was something special from day one.  He is calm, cool, and collected, always eager to please and a perfect gentleman. He is a beloved angel and at one hundred pounds, a gentle giant who intuitively comes to your side to offer support when he feels you may have difficult emotions bubbling up.

He enjoys doing anything with Stacey and may even panic a bit when she leaves the room without him.  He loves any and all water and especially loves the beach. He's even an avid paddle boarder.  He brings a smile to everyone and is a fixture within the studio.
