Stephanie (she/her) came to Iyengar yoga after years of debilitating back pain, trying many forms of rehabilitation and eventually having had surgery. While her healed back has become a testament to the power of the practice, she is quick to point out that physical health is only one of many remarkable gifts that Iyengar Yoga affords. Stephanie is deeply moved by the playfulness and self-discovery inherent to the practice and regularly weaves these themes into her classes.
She is the director of Studio Po and holds a Level 3 Iyengar Yoga teaching certificate. Stephanie continues to study regularly with Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers worldwide.
