Stephanie found hot yoga after a car accident in 2008 left her with a bolt in her hip and an intramedullary rod in her femur. She found the perfect balance of mental/physical challenge and rehabilitation when she began practicing hot yoga. After her first Blissful Spirits class on April 11, 2011, she was addicted. She practiced at Blissful for years before attaining her own certification, and is thrilled to be teaching at her yoga home. Stephanie received her 200-hour training in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Although she doesn’t teach the traditional Ashtanga series, she was deeply influenced by the precision that practicing Ashtanga yoga instilled in her. Her yoga classes feature creative yoga sequences and transitions, an injection of fresh poses, lots of variation, with optional hands-on adjustments and incorporation of essential oils. Her sculpt classes incorporate personal attunement to bhandas and breathing with a challenging strength training, cardiovascular and interval training exercises that can be modified and amplified, making every class tailored to each individual person’s needs and level of practice. Stephanie is eager to share her passion for yoga with her practitioners.
