"Meet Stacy Olsen of ludivine life coaching in Plano"


Stacy, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.

I have been an avid yogi since 2001, when the practice to quiet my mind began. In order to get a better understanding of the physical postures (or so I thought), I joined yoga teacher training in 2008 and promptly announced during the introductions that I had “no interest in teaching yoga.” Well, thousands of hours, hundreds of students and dozens of yoga teacher trainees and coaching clients later, here I am, a 500-hour E-RYT (experienced registered yoga trainer), certified yoga-life coach, and entrepreneur.

For most of my life, I lacked the confidence to make even the smallest decision that might lead to progress. I used to feel I wasn’t “enough” and lacked trust in myself that could lead me to accomplish my goals and dreams. I didn’t even know what those could be, for that matter. I couldn’t “see the forest through the trees” and it wasn’t until I got out of my own way, stepped out of my comfort zone and took action that I realized: I had all the answers inside!! through the practice of awareness and retaining instructors and coaches, I was able to bring answers to the surface, verbalize them, separate truth from lies, break my goals down to reasonable tasks, accomplish them fully, and SHINE!!! Doing the hard work and investing in myself has given me the courage and freedom to travel the globe, create deep dynamic friendships around the world, and leave a 25 year corporate career to live my life passion and purpose.

Has it been a smooth road?
Haha! Well the plan was a smooth road… that wound up looking more like a plate of spaghetti 🍝 I am really fortunate to have mastered the art of learning lessons through challenge. Each struggle has really just been a bend in the road (or noodle) that may have led me out of the way but never off the track of my true purpose. Looking back now, it’s actually tough to recognize the obstacles however have healed from divorce, loss of my dearest childhood friend, family relationship rifts, uncertainty in my career path at times, and the occasional doubts and fears of being a single female supporting myself financially. All in all, knowing that the Universe has always had my back gives me all the calm and peace I need during some of the rough patches.

Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
My niche is helping people who are ready to gain awareness of how to see their way out of their own plate of spaghetti, so to speak. My ideal client is someone who realizes there is something more than what they are currently living and wants to invest in themselves to honestly open up to be aware of where they are right now in life; explore what “more” might look like; and do the work to identify and remove obstacles that are keeping them from living their most authentic life.

Being highly intuitive, I hold space for them to receive permission from themselves to shift into trusting their own intuition, stepping out of “the way things have always been done” and moving forward regardless of limiting influences. I help them see that their own voice is the one that matters most, not necessarily all of the other voices that have driven them in the course of their life. My 100% trust in and following my own intuition gives me an edge when it comes to helping someone see that their own intuition has never lied to them… it is just a matter of really listening and believing in themselves. I am also aware that it is hard work and worth every minute, every penny, and every drop of blood, sweat, and tears. 

When it comes to yoga (defined as the uniting of consciousness in the heart), I encourage students to start where they are in mind, body, heart and soul. It is rare for me to teach physical yoga without also exercising the student’s mindset and heart space simultaneously.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I moved to Plano in 1984, owned a home in Frisco for 15 years and landed back in Plano about two years ago. I like that Plano is basically at capacity so things are settled and comfortable, especially right now during some interesting and unprecedented times. I’m in the Shops at Legacy area so everything is at my fingertips (aka walking distance) except for a grocery store, which I guess is my only complaint!

My favorite part of Dallas as a whole is the Farmers Market and being able to support so many local farmers, artists, and entrepreneurs. least favorite part is that I cannot walk there!
