I recently became certified as a Kripalu yoga teacher. What the heck does that have to do with photography?
Don’t be confused here, it’s just yoga ;-)
As mentioned in my last post, I’m a Gemini – and boy do I rock that hard! There’s this thing about “twins” and multiple personalities, or I like to call it “versatility”… In modern day terms, let’s just say I have a LOT of domain names. A lot of interests. I grew up on the beach and belong to the Appalachian Mountain Club, I’m a photographer with an MBA, I studied calligraphy for a weekend, I’m a huge knitter, I still take language courses, I’ll sign up for any sewing class, I had a membership to a pottery studio in Vermont, I love to watercolor, I’m a runner and enjoy building community around that, I volunteer for local animal rescue organizations, I’m off to a meditation retreat this weekend… and mostly, I just freak my mom out with too many things on my plate at once. For me, though, “too many” isn’t a thing. If there
is was a gap in my schedule, it’s been filled by now. That’s kinda how I like it.

Once going out on my own after corporate life, I began taking a month of time off to travel – like fully renting an apartment and living somewhere else for a while. I spent one August in the Rocky Mountains of Banff, Alberta, and more recently spent an April month amidst the adorable streets of Florence, Italy. This year? I spent a month in the Berkshires of Massachusetts learning yoga.
My yoga teacher and mentor, Coby Kozlowski seems to be a soul mate of mine… She taught herself to surf, took time away to attend DJ school, and recently spent a week learning floral design in NYC. I’m only mentioning her to help make the case that I’m not the only crazy one. Did it work?
Anyway, that’s the story of how Stacey became a yoga teacher. It has nothing to do with photography and everything to do with life experiences! That being said, *call me* if you’re looking for yoga photography!
