East meets West
Stephanie was initially drawn to yoga for its physical benefits – but it didn’t take long before she started noticing a positive effect on her mind and body as well. With each passing class, she felt her stress and tension melt away. Her mind became clearer and more stable. It was then that she realized that yoga was not just a sport, it was a lifestyle.
Having worked in the fashion industry for 10 years, Stephanie understood the struggle and stress inherent to the corporate grind – and having experienced the transformative benefits of yoga, she felt a profound desire to share them with others.
Her first stop was Rishikesh, India, where she completed a 500-hour teacher training program. During this training course, she discovered yoga therapy, and instantly knew that this was her calling.
She then acquired the necessary certifications to officially become a Yoga Therapist. Upon her return to Canada, she combined her teaching skills and therapeutic approach and founded Yoga Works.
Thanks to Yoga Works, Stephanie has been able to offer private yoga workshops tailored to people’s specific needs, experience level, and injuries. She infuses her teaching with classic yogic philosophy, giving students the tools they need to practice on their own in a safe and well-informed way.
As a Yoga Therapist, Stephanie combines meditation, asanas, pranayama, kriyas, nutrition, and psychoanalysis to help treat psychosomatic diseases caused by our modern lifestyle. Her practice can help diminish the effects of diabetes, back pain, migraines, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, and more.
The Yoga Works concept is a holistic take on the modern studio setting, and has been wildly successful in Canada, Asia, Central America and Europe.
