About the Presenter:

Stacey Louise is one of Australia’s most experienced and inspirational Children’s Yoga Teachers.

Prior to teaching Children’s Yoga in 2005, she was teaching kid’s fitness classes; studying to be an early years primary school teacher, and working on set on a children’s TV show at Network TEN.

Working in children’s hospital wards for over 18 years, Stacey founded the “Calm Fairies” hospital program, where paediatric patients are guided through calming activities during their hospital stay. Using her experience in Children’s TV, Stacey produced a series of kids yoga DVDs which sold all over Australia and features on Gaia TV. In 2021, Peppa Pig invited Stacey to create a yoga class for the Peppa Pig You Tube channel. 

Since 2012, Stacey has been training Yoga Teachers to specialise in Children’s Yoga, through her Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher Training School, “Inspired Kids Yoga”. A high number of enquiries for the training came from professionals who work with children. This led to a series of workshops being created that included the best TOOLS of yoga, without having to do an entire Yoga Teacher Training. These workshops were turned into online courses during COVID lockdown and released under her “Calm Fairies” brand.

In 2022 & 2023, Stacey has delivered over 80 workshops created specifically for kindy teachers in kindergartens around QLD.

Stacey is passionate about sharing the practices that have helped her so much through her life and aims to make training as practical, authentic, down to earth and whole-hearted as possible. She has a gift for helping you find and shine your special qualities into the sessions that you facilitate with children.
