YOU CAN BE THE

PRESENT + CONFIDENT

WOMAN YOU WANT

TO BE + MAKE YOUR

MARK ON THE WORLD

YOU NEED TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE.

You’ve tried to make positive changes in your life and they never, ever last.

You feel worried, frustrated, and exhausted way more than you’d like to admit.

You’re overwhelmed and you know in your heart you’re not living your best life.

And you’re not showing up in the world in the way that you want.

The truth is, you need to reclaim your life.

I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND.

I’m a Certified Yoga Therapist on a mission to empower women to take charge their lives so that they can be the person they want to be.

Because living your best life is the most important thing you can do for yourself, your family and friends, the causes that are important to you, and the world.

But when you struggle to make the changes you know you should you need a doable plan and a confidence boost. (Cause having your sh*t together feels good!)

When you’re worried or frustrated you need to how to get calm right now and not get so stressed out every day. (Cause nobody’s got time for overwhelm!)

And when you’re exhausted you want to be able to take better care of yourself without stopping your life. (Cause we both know that’s not gonna happen!)

HERE’S HOW I DID IT.

It used to be that I felt worried, frustrated, exhausted, and on the verge of losing it every single day.

I tried so many times to get myself together and change my life, but it never worked and my sense of dread got worse and worse.

I failed out of college, struggled to keep a steady job, avoided my problems with bad relationships, and was completely overwhelmed and miserable.

My stress and self-loathing initiated a body-focused repetitive behavior: I pulled on my eyebrows and eyelashes.

And eventually pulled them all out.

This was a low point for me.

I had no eyebrows or eyelashes yet I would find myself manically picking whenever my overwhelmed mind was racing.

It was time to take charge of myself and this weird habit was where I started. (I’ll admit, there may have been a bit of vanity motivating me!)

I was determined to stop, so when I caught myself pulling on eyebrows or eyelashes that weren’t even there, I’d bend over and take a few deep breaths.

And I’d say to myself, “You don’t have to pull out your eyebrows and eyelashes.”

A SHIFT IN PERCEPTION CHANGED EVERYTHING.

This simple practice interrupted my pattern of feeling overwhelmed and my eyebrows and eyelashes (very, very slowly!) began to grow back.

But still, when I felt myself getting stressed, I’d do my forward bend and breathe. I’d calm myself down by acknowledging, “You’re ok, you’re ok, everything is ok.”

Little by little I stopped thinking every challenge was the end of the world and taking better care of myself became a priority.

And as I continued bending over and breathing, my inner dialog shifted to, “I am calm, I am capable, I am at peace.”

I was gaining the benefits of yoga with one simple practice and started feeling more motivated and optimistic about life.

I LEARNED 3 LIFE-ALTERING LESSONS.

1. If you’re calm, that voice in your head makes more sense and you feel more present and confident.

2. Becoming your best self is a daily practice and your life’s most important purpose.

3. Using yoga to heal isn’t complicated, but it does have to be a consistent part of your life.

Years after I reclaimed my life with yoga, I trained in Integrative Yoga Therapy to deepen my understanding of its transformative power.

I began teaching a few group classes and working with individuals to help them use yoga to make positive changes in their lives and manage their stress.

And over the next decade, I built a yoga therapy practice serving yoga studios, hospitals, businesses, and private students.

These years of experience revealed that a few simple therapeutic practices and teachings can be transformational for the vast majority of people.

(Like they were for me!)

NOW, I’M ON A MISSION TO EMPOWER YOU TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE SO THAT YOU CAN BE WHO YOU WANT TO BE.

WHAT IS YOGA THERAPY?

The International Association of Yoga Therapists defines it as the process of empowering individuals (that’s you!) to progress toward improved health and well-being (physical, mental & spiritual) through the application of the teachings (philosophy) and practices (postures, breathing, meditation & so much more) of yoga.

Stephannie brings remarkable kindness and compassion to her work.
