Stacy TenHouten teaches with an intention of offering tools to help navigate and alleviate stress, depression and anxiety. Stacy intimately and intuitively works with individuals and groups to help them cultivate sustainable, personalized practices of yoga that they can implement in their daily lives as a means of physical health, healing trauma and maintaining a sense of well being.
Stacy has been practicing yoga for over 30 years with a focus on trauma informed practices. She received her teaching certification from Santa Monica Yoga and her Trauma Informed Yoga Certification under her mentor, Kyra Haglund, and Hala Khouri.
Stacy works with both adult and youth groups. She has led and developed programs in addiction recovery, post incarceration care and healing sexual trauma. She has been extremely active in supporting underserved youth in Los Angeles and in 2012 received the Teacher of Hope Award from the City of Los Angeles.
Stacy is also a co-facilitator of Yoga and Dream Lab with Mercedes Gertz, PhD, a process in which yoga and meditation is used as a tool in unearthing the symbolic language of dreams to be explored through a Jungian lens as a means of healing trauma.
