Yoga for Busy Organizers – by Stacy Berger

At 63 Magazine, we want to tell you that it’s okay to take care of yourself, and that you’ll be a better organizer for it. We’re so lucky to have Stacy Berger lead a quick yoga routine designed specifically for your busy schedules.

Stacy began organizing for the John Kerry presidential campaign in 2004 as a field organizer in Columbia, Missouri. There she met her future husband, Marlon Marshall. After finishing that campaign as a Get Out The Vote Lead Organizer in Wisconsin, she continued to work in progressive politics. Stacy served as a Regional Field Director for Hillary Clinton for President in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2007, as the Deputy National Training Director for Obama for America in 2011, and as the GOTV Director for the Obama campaign in Nevada in 2012. She also has a ton of experience leading young democrats and college democrats, and executing organizing efforts for non-profit organizations like Planned Parenthood.

Through all of this work, and many other roles, Stacy has been able to lead a healthy lifestyle.  A certified yoga instructor, she knows the importance of taking care of yourself while organizing. Throughout her grueling work on many campaigns, Stacy has looked to yoga to relieve stress and to increase her ability to stay focused on her work.
