Stefanie is a native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and has been practicing yoga and movement for 15 + years.

Stefanie recalls that her first encounter with yoga philosophy came during her undergraduate studies while in a training seminar on "how to deal with upset people" when she was first introduced to the concept and power of meditation. This experience sparked her continued journey with meditation and yoga and helped to inform her exploration of her path to safe exercise while struggling through childhood asthma.

Stefanie is registered with Yoga Alliance since 2005 and is a certified Group Fitness Instructor with the American Council on Exercise (ACE).

Both an educator and award-winning documentary filmmaker, Stefanie currently lives and practices yoga in New York City.
