My Story

I first came to yoga eight years ago when I found myself overwhelmed with work and life in London. Discovering the London Buddhist Centre my journey began by signing up for meditation and yoga courses. It acted as a cure for my stressful and imbalanced life, building a bridge which connected my inner self to the outside world more positively.

It has played such a powerful part in my healing journey and I’m very enthusiastic about sharing my passion for how yoga benefits my life in order to help others. This led onto a lifestyle and something that I couldn’t live without. Yoga has taught me so much about myself and I love the fact that in each class I teach or practices in, there is always something new to learn or change for the better.

My Knowledge

Since completing my six month, two hundred hour Yoga Alliance teacher training with ‘One Yoga’ in London I have also completed various mindfulness and meditation training, growing my overall focus into Soulful Yoga, Health & Well-being and Meditation practices.

Although yoga started off as a physical practice for me, as it does for a lot of people, overtime the connection was made with the mind and spirit and how one can affect the other.

My Style

My teaching style is fun, friendly, positive and energetic with a focus on correct alignment and avoiding injury. It’s structured in a way to connect mind, heart and body with uplifting energy and emphasis on the healing roots of yoga. My intention is to share yoga in an inclusive way, providing a space for students to explore and welcome all that arises throughout their practice, in order to harness a deeper sense of awareness through mind/body connection.

In my classes you will find focus on the conscious breath and how to connect it with each meditative movement. I hope to take you on a journey of your own body, with no judgements, just complete acceptance of where you are in this particular moment. This will support you to experience and enjoy the journey of ‘the self’.​

Further Learning

Despite being a teacher, I remain a student of yoga. I learn from different teachers and practitioners and maintain a daily self-practice. I believe that we’re all on a continuous journey and I deepen my knowledge by attending regular workshops, training and retreats. I have also achieved my 18-month Level 4 teacher training and graduated as a British Wheel of Yoga Teacher (additional RYT 300 hours, July 2018).

I am very passionate and keen to share ‘the path of balance’ and my desire to live in balance has become my life’s practice. It is the barometer that allows me to check in and acknowledge when I have swayed to the wrong side of the spectrum. It is easy to get caught up in the doing, the getting things done to accomplish the many tasks we list for ourselves. In the complexity of modern life, it is easy to become imbalanced, which can often lead to irritation, fear, anxiety, or illness. When I do too much, overextend myself, and lose sight of the delicate equilibrium between work, play, and rest, I am not happy. There is no peace.

It’s important to cultivate and acknowledge that our Yang driven worlds need Yin to create that true centered balance and to slow down. In June 2018, I embarked on more ‘Yin Yoga’ teacher training, for Yin teachers, going deeper into this power practice with Yin Yoga Master Norman Blair, such an incredible experience. I have achieved an additional 30 hours of certification with the Yoga Campus. (Yin Intensive Training: Minds, Meridians, Moments).

  • I can hands down say Stephanie is the BEST yoga teacher I have ever had. Her style of teaching is something I've never experienced before.

    The class flows really well, I understand why we're working on certain moves and what poses it's working towards.

    It's really challenging, I actually sweat and shake! So I know my muscles are working hard. But at the same time, it's really relaxing and a brilliant way to relieve stress.
