Vice President Product Development

When Stacey was first introduced to Destination Satori Founder Carol Gutzeit, she was looking for a way to increase the joy in her life and also inspire her five children. Stacey had been practicing yoga for 10 years and was a certified yoga teacher. She immediately started the process of becoming certified as a Satori Yoga teacher and a Satori Lifestyle coach. Stacey loved what the coaching program and yoga practice did for her and knew that sharing this lifestyle was what she was called to do. As the spokesperson for Satori Yoga, she stars in the company’s Satori Yoga DVD, has taught Satori Yoga to the Young Presidents Society, Jefferson County Schools, and at the Yoga High Festival in Evergreen, Colorado. She teaches Satori Yoga classes at the Satori Yoga Center in Evergreen where she also offers Satori Lifestyle coaching.  As vice president of product development as well as a Satori Lifestyle coach, Stacey provides her insight, knowledge and expertise to the development of Destination Satori’s new products and programs. Stacey says she has increased the joy tenfold now that she has integrated the Satori principles into her life.  She enjoys spending time playing with her two granddaughters, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, playing ping pong, and working towards her black belt in karate.
