Stef found yoga in 2002 per a friends recommendation after a deep chat about life. Even though she felt completely lost in her first classes, she noticed some real changes in her attitude toward herself and toward life, so she kept coming back for more. Stef completed her 200-hour certification at Samyama Yoga Center in 2017, and recently completed her 100-hour prenatal training at Lotus Blossom as well. Stef looks forward to creating an environment where her students can drop into their own bodies and leave class with the same positive outlook as she felt since day one. When she is not teaching yoga, Stef works at a tech startup in Sunnyvale, is hula hooping or planning her next escape to a foreign country.
