Stephanie began teaching āsana in 2013 and has continued to expand her education in yoga ever since. After receiving her master's degree in Yoga Studies from Loyola Marymount University in 2019, she immediately began teaching yoga courses at the community college level. It was paramount for her to bring these teachings to college students because of the research she conducted while in her graduate program. Stephanie proved that a yoga course based on yogic philosophy, breath work (prāṇāyāma), meditation and āsana had a positive effect on undergraduate college student's mental health and emotional wellbeing. Unfortunately, yoga courses are rarely offered in course catalogs. If they are, most focus solely on āsana and are not taught by a graduate of yoga studies.
One thing that Stephanie relied on the most in college was her planner. Having a planner helped her complete assignments on time and kept her life events together in one place. This habit stayed with her beyond her undergraduate years and eventually led her to create a planner, for both students and working adults. With this planner, college students and students of yoga can incorporate yoga practices into their life while keeping the rest of their responsibilities and priorities in order.
Living a life of mindfulness, observation and compassion is a lifelong practice. Stephanie continues to work towards this lifestyle and hopes that you choose to take the journey alongside her.
