Words from Graduates of Stacy's Mentoring

“Stacy’s teaching changed my life. I have never participated in anything before or since that remains as invigorating as it was/is challenging. I walked away knowing that my first responsibility in every class that I lead was to “change-lives” the way Stacy changed mine. My life revolved around her schedule. My teaching improved because of Stacy McCarthy. I learned more than asanas. I learned how to fine-tune the dynamics of classroom instruction and “open” the hearts and souls of all class participants. I shared with my students what Ms. McCarthy shared with me – teaching at is finest.”

Lucia Viti, Fitness Professional

I had the distinct privilege of being taught by the best, Stacy McCarthy. Stacy was my teacher in my Yogaworks Teacher Training. In addition, she mentored me for nine months in her Yoga School of Business program. Stacy is the essence of integrity and a gift. Thanks to her, I have created my own successful career in Yoga, Nutrition & Health.

What Stacy's Students are Saying

“As a long time yoga student, I have continuously searched for a mentor since I moved to San Diego 10 years ago. It seems that the San Diego community is inundated with some very young teachers who have the asanas down perhaps but not the wisdom, introspection, and reflection of the purpose of yoga, notwithstanding, living the lifestyle. In taking your classes, I see that you exude something in which I’ve been searching in a teacher. You’re bright, deep, reflective, and knowledgeable. I appreciate your teaching style, your Saturday mellow but challenging flow class, your voice, your expertise, and attention to the inner voice, the breath. I listen to all that you say, find the music a lovely accompaniment, and benefit from your calm spirit. I just want to stay on my mat after your class and fall deeper into the earth.”

Melissa Joseph
