“True Human Enlightenment will happen when all human beings on this planet have regulated their nervous systems.” – Peter Levine
Body Honor is a Trauma Informed Mindful Movement, Spiritual Wellness,
and Body Relationship Coaching Program for women that are ready to begin or continue on an inner journey, as well as a Physical journey as it relates to how they view their health, their body, and ultimately themselves and how they experience life.
Body Honor utilizes Neuroscience as its foundation and introduces the concepts of Neuroplasticity as well as Neurosensory exercises to help rewire the nervous system and transmute traumatic experiences, health challenges, and chronic health problems. We truly believe we can heal ourselves. You are your own healer.
Body Honor is a body centered transformational program based on three tenants:
We address this through Body Honor’s 3 pillars:
Personal Growth/Inner Resilience
Body Honor’s mission is to guide women through letting go of past negative attachments, associations, and patterns in relation to self and the body. We help women reconnect the mind and body in a way that opens up and creates flow and ease in all areas of life. We aim to show women that there can be and IS another way of viewing their past experiences, ones that may have been viewed as dark, difficult, or shameful and transmuting those into light and an internal knowing that ALL parts of ourselves deserve love. We don’t heal through shame, we heal through love. We facilitate a coming back to love for all that you’ve been through, and realizing the body has been right by your side through it all, simply a desperately ignored friend just longing for connection, acknowledgement, and gratitude. Our motto is feel and heal..feel and heal.
Body Honor envisions a world where women completely embody their true whole selves..connecting to all parts of themselves and allowing all emotions and feelings to flow through them so nothing stays stagnant in the body. Where women realize their past traumas, adversity, illness or injuries have served them in some beautiful way..they have not changed us..they have shaped us. A world where we look at our pain, whether physical, emotional or a blend of the two, in a completely different way. A way where are able to see what it was here to show us and teach us, to be able to honor it so they can then set it free.

Owner and Founder of Body Honor
privately or work together in groups, in person or online to address how past traumas, body shame and self-loathing manifest in the body through health challenges, injuries, illness and mental/emotional blocks. Stacey teaches and embodies a new way to look at yourself through eyes of self-compassion for all your body has been through, and learning how to truly LISTEN to your bodies varying needs at different phases in your life.
Stacey is also now the founder of a Social Impact Movement called I AM A Lighthouse which helps those recovering from trauma or facing adversity by sharing tools, resources, inspiring stories, interviews and community with live events and incredible people walking the path of light. Stacey’s personal mission is to release the stigma of the word trauma, teach women of the world self compassion, and introduce solution oriented dialogue that includes men in our young boys into the conversation, and for all of us to know our pain is our purpose, and healing is possible for everyone. We’re not alone in our doubt and shame, confusion and overwhelm, darkness and shadows, and there IS a light and a love in all of us that can never be extinguished. By August 2018 Stacey will also be a Certified Violence Prevention Specialist speaking in the LA area about domestic, sexual, and interpersonal violence. Stacey currently speaks on podcasts and stages around the US on rape culture and trauma resilience.
While being taught by the worlds most renowned doctors, physical therapists, trainers, nutritionists, and spiritual “gurus” of our time Stacey brings her own unique integrative and holistic approach to all that she does. Stacey is passionately dedicated to leading the industry in cutting edge personal training, therapeutic yoga, and spiritual wellness coaching through her continuing personal education and research in the field, giving her clients unparalleled personal success. Many experts can get credentials but few immerse themselves in the real work and follow the true path of the journey to embodiment of what they are called to teach. Stacey has studied and mentored with Jack Canfield, Michael Beckwith, Marci Lock, Regan Hillyer, Lisa Nilsen and Nichole Sylvester – just to name a few. Stacey’s path wasn’t easy; she knows what it takes to be in peak physical performance and the external perception of “success,” but also knows all too well what it’s like when the body is injured and stressed and for the mind to “fail”, to a near fatal degree due to debilitating depression and anxiety and all emotional bodies were in desperate need of care. The constant stress Stacey put her physical body through of rigorous boxing training and bikini competitions (not to mention the emotional pain she wasn’t addressing) had taken it’s toll. In 2012 it led to a complete physical and emotional breakdown. As mentioned, this was a catalyst to her healing journey and it led her to her Spiritual mentors and her studies at Loyola Marymount University in Yoga Therapy ( yoga as a healing therapy and science ) for more of a balanced mind/body/fitness education to bring not only to herself and her own wellness but now to her clients. Stacey also became trained in trauma informed movement practices, bodywork and soft tissue assessment as well as breath work, as she learned the holding patterns of trauma in the body can be quite complex and there needs to be a lot of tools in the tool kit. She is also specialist in myofascial release, a modalities she feels that is still underused and grossly underestimated in its connection to our overall health, fitness, nervous system and our ability to release and move on to intended goals – spiritual and physical. She continued on in her studies in Neuroscience and Trauma mentoring with Irene Lyons who studied directly under the father of Somatic Experiencing Peter Levine. Stacey will also be a Certified Trauma Recovery Coach by December 2019 as the transmutation of trauma is the main foundation in her coaching practice.
Stacey has been a frequent speaker on health and wellness for American Heart Association, Women’s Health Coalition and at various hospitals. She has been a published writer in Santa Barbara Fitness and Coastal Woman, and she has been recognized in Shape Magazine, Santa Barbara Magazine, Iron Man Magazine, Santa Barbara News Press, The Daily Sound and more. Stacey has led inspiring workouts at National Conferences for world renowned motivational speaker Jack Canfield ( Chicken Soup for the Soul and The Success Principles ) as well as The Barbara Ireland Cancer Walk, and Cancer Institute of Santa Barbara. Stacey has been nominated for multiple awards one of which includes The Gutsy Gal Award ( former winners include Kathy Ireland ) and has even received a certificate of Congressional Recognition for her work with the Womans Coalition. In the Bikini Fitness Bodybuilding arena Stacey has won the BMR West Coast Classic Team Award, placed 1st and 3rd in her two personal competitions, Global Physique Recognition of Service award and currently holds the record for most team competitors from a single area in bodybuilding history.
