Discover the simple choice that changed my whole life in the intro to my forthcoming book.

I’m Stephannie. 

I’m a Certified Yoga Therapist and creator of Make Peace with Stress.

But really, I’m an inspiring teacher with an interesting story and practical mentor who cuts through the overwhelm to get to the heart of the matter.

I’m amazing at compassionate truth-telling.

And I’ve devoted most of my life to discovering how to overcome challenges as the path to being my best self and teaching others to do the same.

When you work with me you can expect wholehearted connection, and you’ll probably be surprised and delighted by just how potent, yet practical yoga therapy for stress can be.

My work matters because when you change the way you look at things, the things that you look at change. 

And I’m here to say, you’re one simple choice from improving your whole life and the world.

My question for you is: If not now, when? (Hint: It’s always NOW.)

I’m partnered with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation to plant trees with 5% of all proceeds. 

Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.

They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.

Trees have deep roots, strong trunks and broad branches. Trees dance with the wind and breathe for the whole world.

In the physical practice of yoga, tree pose (vrksasana) is a balancing posture, for the body and mind.

Being grounded, centered, and willing to grow in all directions, helps us weather the storms of life—as strong and steady trees so often do. 

You’re one simple choice for changing your whole life—and the world—for the better.


Stephannie Weikert is a Certified Yoga Therapist who helps smart, capable men and women manage stress with some of the most fundamental, yet little-known principles of yoga.

She’s been teaching therapeutic yoga for stress in studios, hospitals, businesses, and with her 1:1 clients since 2005. Now she’s on a mission to make meaningful personal growth doable and practical with her signature Make Peace with Stress approach so of us can be present, calm and confident, and change the world.

When not mentoring individuals and organizations to transform challenges into catalysts for growth, Stephannie can usually be found under a pile of books or working on writing her first book about how to take charge of your chaotic mind and focus on what’s really important to you.
