Stephanie V., Instructor
With well over 8 years of self-practice, I believe yoga is a lifelong personal practice. I am RYT-200 hour, Vinyasa Flow certified, at Inspirit Yoga School. I admire the freedom of Vinyasa Flow Classes. While teaching with a playful, yet calm attitude, I want to help my students feel comfortable and empowered in their own practice. Because of my passion for learning and
teaching, you'll find that my classes include pleasant, yet comfortable modifications for any body type. I believe yoga brings a nurturing experience to the mind, body and soul. I've been inspired through yoga to live more mindfully on and off the mat. Yoga has helped me to grow and move past my own limitations, which in turn guide me to understand and have a deeper connection with my students. With my bachelors in Psychology and self-experience, I seek and pursue to inspire others to find self-acceptance and greater emotional balance. Off the mat, you will find me dancing, reading a book, at the beach, traveling, and exploring new cultures, cuisines and/or spending time with my family and dog. ~Namaste
