She believes that consistent yoga practice allows people to both improve their mental and phsyical health and achieve their true potential.
Stephanie teaches vinyasa classes that are fun and empowering as well as hatha flow classes that challenge practitioners to work their way to difficult poses including arm balances and inversions. She also teaches relaxing yin/restorative classes that include calming meditations. Her classes emphasize the importance of mindfulness, encouraging compassionate movement with each asana. She has extensively studied alignment, anatomy and the philosophy in yoga and she incorporates these principles in her yoga classes. Stephanie is also an independent licensed clinical social worker.
