Welcome to the 77th edition of the Hip Tranquil Chick podcast: a guide to life on and off the yoga mat. Produced at the Pink Palace.
Today’s podcast is on a discussion of pilates, do-gooding & novel writing with Stacy Sims, topped of with a look and pose of the podcast, and fun tunes! View our shownotes at hiptranquilchick.com/blog.
In 2001, Stacy left a career in marketing and arts management to finish her first novel. Swimming Naked was released by Viking in 2004 to critical acclaim. The Chicago Tribune called a “fresh, edgy … brutally moving first novel” and Border’s Books selected it for its national Original Voices program. Stacy is also the owner of Pendleton Pilates, which she founded in 2001. She runs a nationally recognized Teacher Training program, has been published in national fitness and yoga magazines and had conducted workshops in the U.S. and abroad. See pendletonpilates.com.
Stacy is at work on her second novel and is a sought after speaker and presenter on the topics of addiction, mind and body alignment, and purposeful leadership.
