Stevie played soccer her whole life ending up in Division 1 at UCI. She had identified with this role for so long that when her soccer career came to an end, she was lost. She discovered yoga in 2011 and felt the transformation from the instant she stepped on her mat, after fighting off her resistance to try it. The experiences she was having were so monumental that she couldn’t wait to share this gift with others. She dedicated herself to becoming an instructor that can hold a space for others to experience their own personal revolution. Now as an instructor she invites her students to explore every facet of themselves and feel safe doing so. Rather than denying the unwanted emotions and feelings, accepting and understanding them so that in turn they can reframe the stories that are holding them back from accessing their truth. She believes that yoga is not just an awesome way to “work out” and move your body but the primary focus is the “work in” you get from each experience.
