About

Steph studied to become a yoga teacher in Portugal with The Sacred Fig; a comprehensive yoga school with faculty from all around the globe. Her training focused not only on the key aspects of anatomy, alignment, pranayama, mantra, meditation & yogic philosophy, but also dove into personal development, linguistics, Ayurveda, energetics & Thai massage. She is a student more than anything; who also happens to teach. She has so much gratitude for her teachers; Anton Brandt, Tony Lupinacci, David Regelin & Jules Mitchell to name a few.

“As a teacher, my hope more than anything during class is to allow for an experience. Yes, I guide the body & breath through movement but ultimately what happens for each student is so very personal and certainly something I take no credit for.  The credit belongs to the student on the mat doing the work. 


To me, the practice of yoga is less about the achievement of pretzel shapes and more about what we are able to learn about ourselves as we come face to face with discomfort and unfamiliar territory. How we show up on our mat is often an indication of how we show up in other areas of our lives as well.  We have to become familiar with our habits and why they have formed in the first place if we hope to change them for the better. Yoga gives us the space to observe and rewire.”

When she is not teaching, you’ll find her singing and playing guitar, snowboarding, eating ramen or writing her book at various cafes around the Bow Valley.
