"Stephanie's yoga instruction is simply masterful, and I'm confident that the four years I've spent practicing yoga under her direction has added countless years to my life. Her flawless form has enabled me to create a solid foundation on which I continue to build. In fact, I can point directly to Stephanie's instruction for helping me reach the best shape of my life, and one in which I can easily meet various physical demands.
Stephanie has been integral in every stage of my yoga development. Her constant emphasis on core strengthening and form has produced dramatic results, including a marked improvement in flexibility, strength and range of body motion. Each session varies and builds on previous sessions and I never balk at the idea of waking up at 5:30 a.m. to practice with her. Stephanie is truly a shining light in my day." - Jackie Kern
"Stephanie's yoga classes cured my debilitating back pain. I had suffered through periodic episodes of excruciating back pain for over a decade. A herniated disk was diagnosed easily. But a reliable cure was not found until Stephanie. I used to subconsciously "protect" my back by avoiding engaging it, leading to defensive posture and misalignment. With Stephanie's classes, I have freed my back of fear of pain. Now I feel stronger, aligned, and at ease with working my back. It has changed my body and my spirit. It is obvious to others too. In recent times numerous people who I see rarely have commented about how healthy and relaxed I look, and they're right. Being confidently pain-free is liberating to the soul. Thanks to Stephanie's classes, I am pain free and confident physically in my 40s in ways I could not imagine in my 30s. My only regret, it took too long to find her." - Ben Aitkenhead
"After herniating several discs in my lower back, I suffered years of chronic and debilitating back pain. While the doctors suggested surgery, I wanted to exhaust all other options before I made such a drastic decision. I saw orthopedic doctors, physiatrists, physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and osteopaths, trying every noninvasive option available before a friend suggested that I try yoga. Following her advice, I decided to take private lessons with Stephanie to see if yoga could help. Stephanie was knowledgeable, patient, and caring. Her ability to help me heal transcended what all the medical professionals were able to achieve, and within months I was back on track to living a healthy lifestyle. It's been ten years since I started studying with Stephanie and thanks to my work with her I've been able to avoid the surgery. I've also done so without compromise as I'm able to enjoy karate, sailing, golf, tennis, surfing and all sorts of other rigorous sports... all without back pain." - Dan Kern
"Stephanie is an exceptional person and teacher. Aside from her personal accomplishments (which she never talks about!) and yoga prowess, she has remarkable intuition, which manifests in her always knowing when to challenge, model, explain, etc. I worked with Stephanie every Saturday morning for over 4 years until my daughter was born. There aren't many people I want to see every Saturday morning but Stephanie knows my body and understands what I'm capable of better than I do and provides everything I need when I need it - humor, sensitivity, rigor, and more. She guided me through my pregnancy - through my eighth month - which proved to be critical for my physical health and mental well-being. One of the best things about Stephanie is that she strives for perfection - an invaluable strength in yoga because doing positions incorrectly can be painful and damaging to one's body. Stephanie has taught me and corrected my poses in a way that I know I can attend any yoga class with confidence that I won't get hurt. Still, I've not been able to give up working with her; I've worked with Stephanie for over 8 years and she has changed my life." - Allison Feldman
