500RYT - YOGA
Stefanie (500-HR) began her yoga journey in 2010 simply looking for a low impact workout to assist her recovery from a serious bicycle accident. Originally, she had only expected to approach yoga as another way to safely move, heal, and build strength, but what she discovered was so much more. This practice has become inseparable from the overall way in which she lives both on and off the mat. Yoga has become not only a moving meditation, but a lifestyle by which she engages the world with a growing discovery of beauty, spaciousness, and breath. Stefanie is continually humbled and inspired by this healing and life-changing power of dynamic, joyful, and intentional movement that unites body, mind, and spirit. In 2013, Stefanie completed her 200-hour YogaWorks certification under Anna Gilbert Zupon here in Pittsburgh, and has since gone on to complete her 300-hour YogaWorks certification in New York City studying under her mentor, Caitlin Casella. In 2016 she became certified to teach Love Your Brain friendly classes, which specialize in work with TBI survivors.
