Stephanie took her first yoga class in 2001 as a way to improve her strength and flexibility. She found yoga helped alleviate chronic muscular pain from a lifetime of competitive sports, and improved her ability to manage stress from her job in corporate finance. As a former collegiate athlete, Stephanie has long been interested in the power and movement of the physical body. As her yoga practice deepened, she quickly discovered how the body’s connection with the breath can be an invaluable resource to quiet her mind during difficult times.Stephanie lives in Southern New Jersey with her husband and two daughters and strives to incorporate yoga poses and mindfulness practices into their daily lives. She graduated from the 200 hour teacher training program at Live in Joy in May 2016 and is especially grateful to have the opportunity to teach here at this studio.
