What better way to save money AND create practical, beautiful gifts than by making your own soap! You'll also learn simple yet lovely packaging ideas for holiday gift-giving.

About Your Guide: Stacey Skala, MSW, E-RYT 200HR

Stacey has been teaching yoga since 2010. A SoCal native, she made her way East after leaving behind a draining career and completing an immersive yoga teacher training at the Ananda Ashram in California. This profound experience fueled the desire to practice and share/teach yoga as a tool for conscious living. A love of music and a passion for slow, vinyasa yoga are evident in her teaching style. She is also the Founder/CEO of Stinky Yogi, an endeavor that led to her touring nationwide as a teacher and essential oil vendor for Wanderlust Yoga Festival for two years. After wrapping up life on the road, Stacey relocated to Ithaca and opened Flourish & Flow Yoga in September 2018. She resides peacefully on a peacock farm in Brooktondale with her husband Matt, pug Gibson and a baby girl named Marlowe Bird.
