RYT 200 Yoga Instructor
Stephanie W is a travel junkie, health nut, foodie, and lover of family, and life. She believes that yoga should be accessible to all, and strives to create a positive supportive environment for a true mind-body connection.
Her path to yoga began after taking her first class at a local gym in Baton Rouge, Louisiana over 20 years ago. It was not until she moved to Alpharetta, Georgia, in 2009 that she revisited the practice by taking a few classes a month at a local gym. In 2014, she found Lift Yoga studio where she was able to learn from amazing instructors, deepen her practice, and find her true passion for yoga on and off her mat.
After a minor back surgery in 2015, she struggled to find her balance and flexibility, and found it difficult to touch her toes. In Yoga, she found strength, and peace every time she stepped onto her mat, and learned that all things take time, consistency, and love.
Life experiences, and completing her 200hrs at Lift Studio with Kim Saunders has allowed Stephanie to follow her childhood passion, and dream of helping others. She feels that coordinating the movement with the breath during each asana, encourages acceptance and flexibility, not only in the body, but also in the mind.
Fun fact: Until moving in with her husband seven years ago, Stephanie moved every two years into a new house, apartment, city, or state. She truly has a gypsy soul, but has found a way to keep herself grounded. Since she was 10, she has kept a box full of old journals, letters, cards, mementos, and photographs. This box has always moved with her. The box has grown larger overtime, but these things are always kept close her heart, and soul.
