About Stacy McCarthy
She is an Associate Professor in the Kinesiology, Health & Nutrition Department, where she co-created the Yoga Studies Certification program. For her contributions to the field of health and wellness as a seasoned mindful movement educator and integrative wellness thought leader, Stacy was honored as the 2021 IDEA World Fitness Instructor of the Year, a prestigious award recognizing superior instructional abilities and positive influence within the global health and fitness industry. Prior to focusing on yoga, Stacy was an All American Swimmer, a World Champion Freestyle Frisbee player, and a Group Fitness Instructor.
Along her journey, Stacy gained knowledge and insight that yoga is about getting rid of the mirrors and judgment of how you look, turning down the music to hear your breath, and getting connected to how you feel. It’s about working the body intelligently, holistically, with balance and feeling. The by-product of a regular yoga practice is a lean, strong, flexible body, a calm mind, and a deeper connection to yourself and everyone around you.
Armed with this knowledge, a daily practice of yoga and meditation, and a passion for helping others, she shares her education and experience worldwide. A gifted and inspirational teacher, Stacy has adopted a more balanced approach of self-acceptance and moderation. She realized that being healthy is not defined by the number of hours you work out or the number of calories you eat but by the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual joy and fullness of your life. She invites everyone to join her in creating rituals and practices to live a balanced life with a beautiful, healthy mind, body, and soul.
