Stefanie started practicing yoga in 1999 hoping to alleviate back problems after her 4th child was born. She soon
discovered the other benefits of a dedicated practice…including increased flexibility and strength. Through yoga, she has learned how to breathe and connect to her mind, body, and spirit. From this connectedness came an inner peace she had never experienced before; a peace that has allowed her to live more fully and "in the moment."
Stefanie received her 200 RYT from Suddha Weixler at the Chicago Yoga Center and has continued her education by
attending workshops led by Manju Pattabhi, David Swenson, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Paulie Zink, and Philip Urso.
A landscape contractor by trade, Stefanie feels a sense of gratitude to be able to do what she loves in life –
landscaping and teaching yoga.
Stefanie emphasizes the philosophy of non-competition in her class balancing rigor and serenity.
