Stephanie’s love of nature, passion for living sustainably, and desire to serve the yoga community led her to live and teach yoga full-time in the Hudson Valley.  Originally from New York City, Stephanie has been interested in health and lifestyle since she was a child, always possessing an intuitive attraction to healthy foods and alternative ways of living years before they appeared as popular trends. Her interest in the ancestral knowledge of health and healing led her to South America to live amongst indigenous communities in Peru, Brazil and Mexico, where she learned about herbalism, shamanism, and fasting from specialists there.  After doing the Peace Corps, Stephanie got her Masters Degree in Social Work and Community Organizing, and worked for over 6 years as an advocate of workers rights, women’s rights, and immigrant rights in cities throughout the East Coast and Mexico.  A lover of travel, yoga, and health, Stephanie sees being in nature and doing wellness in community as a necessary step to achieve positive social change on the planet.

In 2005, Stephanie began immersion studies in Anusara Yoga and Tantric Yoga philosophy with John Friend, Dr. Douglas Brooks, and Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, in addition to other professional yoga teachers in New York City and across the country.  She studies Living Ayurveda with Cate Stillman of YogaHealer.com, whose teaching and healing from a global evolutionary perspective has been revolutionary!
