I've been practicing yoga for over 3 years, and Stephanie's class is one of my favorites in Los Angeles. Her energy is infectious and makes me eager to get on my mat. What makes her unique and special is the attention and care she puts into her sequences. She gently guides her students to do their best, regardless of what limitations they may have. She is a rare soul, a people lover, and was born to bring the benefits of yoga into people's lives and hearts. I highly recommend her!

Stephanie is a teacher that creates a nurturing energy in the classes that she teaches. I've been able to take a few classes from her and she balances each session with a warm and beautiful Hatha flow and a nurturing cool down that involves calming essential oils for savasana. She is comfortable to give adjustments and is mindful to ask prior to adjusting anyone's body. I found Stephanie's classes to be well-executed and purposeful and left feeling well-adjusted, calm and balanced. I highly recommend Stephanie if you are looking for a yoga class that focuses on mindfulness, alignment and a gentle, yet invigorating flow.
Stephanie has a great presence as a yoga instructor. It's more like she is on the journey with you, not just instructing you. She is able to gauge and sense the classes energy and abilities and simultaneously adjust the feel, motivation and energy in her instruction throughout the class. She is well versed in her knowledge of instruction and experience in her practice. She clearly knows ahead of time how to pose, feel and motivate where needed. For instance, if I was doing well or having trouble in some poses, I never felt out of place or left behind. Stephanie's patience and ability to help made me feel comfortable and able to push a little harder each time all while still enjoying the flow and therapeutic calmness of my practice in her classes. She is always open to any question and her calming voice and good energy helps in keeping pace with your flow and ability. All of these elements make her instruction and classes the most pleasant yoga experience ever. Her classes will take you away from your daily grind and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul!

I love Stephanie's classes. I've worked with her privately and in groups of various sizes, and she always gives everyone individualized attention based on their personal goals, individual level, and personality. She really has a talent for tailoring a class to fit everyone's needs. I love how she takes mental note of my goals and injuries, and comes up with new ways to help me progress. Stephanie is perfect for anyone who's looking for a yoga teacher with the perfect combination of knowledge, passion for the practice, and genuine care for every student.
