Stacie Nielsen is a business partner and owner of the studio. She first discovered yoga in 2008 when she first moved to Chicago and a new friend encouraged her to try a class. She was intrigued by the movements and how physically and mentally refreshed she felt after. She continued to regularly practice until her brother tragically passed away in 2012. She feared her yoga mat and the emotions it would stir up. In 2017, a friend convinced her to reintroduce herself to her mat and she fell in love all over again. A well timed massage and friend told her about Light Guardians Yoga School and her heart told her it was time. She has a quirky personality that carries into her practice. She loves to keep busy and her classes incorporate this, showing that you can find peace and relaxation in consistent movement in conjunction with breath. When not on her yoga mat, she works full time as a Physician Practice Manager. Her husband Chris, daughter Isabella, son Connor, and lab Timothy live in the heart of downtown Alpena. They can often be found checking out all the great things the community has to offer, running around the neighborhood or having a family dance off in the kitchen.

Chrissy Taratuta fell in love with fitness early on. At first, yoga was simply an activity to help balance a lifestyle of running but after attending outdoor yoga classes she soon found a deeper connection. The combination of nature and yoga brought a new perspective to the practice. It quickly became a necessary habit. She wanted to share the joy and peace it brought to her with others. When the opportunity to become certified in Alpena arose, she jumped at the chance. In the spring of 2017 she graduated from Light Guardians Yoga School with a 200 hour certification. Teaching is a new experience for her and she is excited to continue learning and growing on this adventure and encourages people to challenge themselves along with her. Outside of yoga, she is passionate about nature and spends most days outdoors, hiking, running and taking photos. Her dream is to continue teaching, traveling and bringing awareness to the beauty life holds in the small joys.
