This Continuing Education Workshop offers simple strategies that support sleep as a cornerstone of health. What we do throughout our day influences our quality of sleep. We will look at morning, afternoon, evening, and middle of the night as parts of the day that require different strategies. Participants will engage in lecture, discussion and an hour-long practice that utilizes morning strategies. Each participant should be able to get up and down to the floor with ease and have some experience with basic yoga postures. Participants can expect to leave with their “eyes wide open” and empowered to improve their quality of sleep.

In 17 years, Stacey has taught over 3,000 classes in teacher training, special education topics, therapeutic privates, mentoring, and public classes. She has co-presented at the University of Texas’s Social Workers Conference in 2017 and 2018 on the topic of “Inner Transformation: A Holistic Approach for Kids with Neurological Issues”.

Stacey finds deep satisfaction in being of service to others. Outside of work, she spends time daily in her own yoga and meditation practice. One of her favorite past times is cultivating stillness by connecting to nature, especially by the ocean’s rhythmic waves. Dancing creates true joy and she dances weekly with her father in Parkinson’s Dance classes. Stacey is a true believer in the power of play.
