Stacy Lund is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT).
She graduated from The University of Utah’s Master of Social Work program in 2013 and completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in June of 2019. Her goal is to help clients manage emotional and physical pain through elements of nonjudgment, movement, and mindfulness.
Stacy has a passion for working with individuals who have experienced trauma with a focus on grief and loss. She has worked primarily in hospice furthering her knowledge of end-of-life issues including chronic pain, unresolved trauma, personal spirituality as well as the grieving process.
She began her personal yoga practice in 2001 at Salt Lake Community College in order to continue developing her flexibility and strength. She did not begin to discover the richness of a yoga practice until experiencing pain from carrying her twins.
In 2002 Stacy moved to San Diego CA, where she worked on Camp Pendleton. She met and worked alongside military personal as well as their spouses during Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. After learning about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from personal experiences she decided she wanted to help servicemen and their families heal from the wounds of trauma.
Stacy believes yoga should be taught in a way that allows it to be accessible to anyone wishing to practice. She is eager to learn and grow as an instructor and feels honored to be teaching this ancient philosophy of the path to enlightenment. She has fallen in love with and is currently pursuing certification as a Yin yoga instructor.
Stacy is a Certified Thanatologist with The Association of Death Education and Counseling as well as a Dementia Dialogues Dementia Specialist. She is a Level II EMDR trainee and has completed trainings in teaching yoga to individuals with trauma and traumatic brain injury.
