Lacy Gandenberger

Lacy began studying dance at the age of three and knew it would be her life long passion. Her love of dance led her to study at Cal State Long Beach where she received a BA in dance, with a focus on studies in body alignment, kinesiology and performance. Lacy naturally fell into yoga because of the blending of precision, athleticism, and grace that dance and yoga both embody. It was natural for her to connect the body, breath, and mind together to form something beautiful, but also allow it to find a deeper and more peaceful sense of self. Lacy completed her 200 hour teacher training with Mark Stephens in Santa Cruz and shares her love of yoga around the Bay Area. Lacy's intention is for students to come to their practice to make their mind and body happy, and in turn take that positive energy off that mat into the world. In Lacy's class, students can expect to work up a bit of a sweat through playful sun salutations and challenging asanas, with a strong presence of the breath. Off the mat, Lacy is a professional dancer with a contemporary ballet company in San Francisco and lives days in the sun with good music.
