Hi! I'm Stephaney and I am a certified ERYT-200 and RYT-500. I began my yoga journey with p90x yoga and a home practice in 2010. My previous background was in martial arts as part of a demonstration team, and, for me, the best parts of that experience were the forms and how the body flowed with the breath. Vinyasa yoga brings me back to these early roots. I expanded my home practice to a studio setting, Hot Yoga Lounge, in 2013. There I found guidance that took my practice to another level: an inner journey that coincided with the physical challenge of the asanas.
I started noticing small positive changes in my daily attitude and a yearning for the peace and inspiration I would find on my mat. Yoga has since become a daily work-in for me to be a better person, to breathe and let go, to non-attach and be set free. I felt compelled to share this process of growth and exploration, to inspire others and reach out to them through my own experience. I completed my RYT-200 in 2016 and have since completed my RYT-500. I have studied and learned from many great yogis including Heather Doutrick, Missy White, MyLinda Morales, Kino MacGregor, Philip Askew, Alexis Martin, and Raghunath Cappo.
I love teaching Hot Vinyasa yoga in which energy, arm balances, and inversions are incorporated. My classes encourage a playful spirit, an open heart, and a beginner's mind; meeting yourself on your mat where you are at each moment, accepting, yet always challenging you to find your own path to your highest self.
"Yoga is the martial art of the soul, and the opponent is the strongest you've ever faced: your ego."
