Steph teaches Gentle Flow, Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, Chair Yoga, prenatal/postnatal, meditation and Plant Spirit yoga and meditation.
She approaches yoga with compassion and patience. Her classes are accessible, grounding and supportive. She believes in creating a space for people to feel empowered to listen to their body and always move in a way that nourishes their unique experience. She has a deep reverence for the wisdom of the body and teaches with an emphasis on breath, alignment, and mindfulness. In her classes, she invokes the principles of sthira and sukha (effort and ease) balancing strength and softness, movement and stillness. Stephanie believes in everyone’s unique expression of yoga, always encouraging students to move with curiosity and kindness. She welcomes all bodies, ages, and abilities ( chair support and variations are available for any of her classes).
Steph loves exploring the wild spaces within and without. In addition to yoga, she loves to hike, kayak, bike, read in her hammock, garden and spend time with her pup.
Steph studied Hatha and Yin with her teacher Joy Morrell in Nelson, BC, 100-hour vinyasa with Troy Hadeed. She studied meditation and Tantric yoga philosophy with her teacher, Sally Kempton. She received her 50-hour certification in Chair Yoga with Annette Wertman and prenatal/postnatal yoga certificate with Lori Lucas. Stephanie regularly sits with her Animism teacher Angela Prider ( Little Bird), learning wisdom teachings of the Earth and how to live in service, sweetness, and reciprocity. She is currently taking her Herbalism certification through Wild Rose Herbal College.
Steph is forever grateful to the unfolding myth, mystery, and wisdom. She bows to her ancestors, teachers, and the Land as they guide her on this path.
