Born and raised in sunny South Florida, Stephanie began practicing yoga when a career in the performing arts led her nearly 3,000 miles from home to Los Angeles. Searching for stillness amidst the hustle and chaos of such a big city, yoga became an essential part of her daily life. Bringing peace during a time of great transition and turmoil; yoga was a grounding force that propelled Stephanie into a journey of self-discovery, healing and transformation. Stephanie has had the incredible opportunity to study with some of the top yoga teachers in Los Angeles, acquiring her 200 and 300-hour certifications from YogaWorks and additional Tantra Based Master Training in Subtle Body with Jeanne Heileman. She is currently the resident yoga, meditation and mindfulness instructor at the Waldorf Astoria and Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. Stephanie also teaches classes weekly at Equinox, YogaWorks and Black Dog Yoga and is an ambassador for Lululemon. You can catch her leading events and workshops in the community as well as yoga retreats yearly. One of her favorite quotes comes from the Bhagavad Gita, “Yoga is the journey, of the self, through the self, to the self.” Stephanie believes that yoga is truly a gift and feels honored to share it with others.
