Hailing from New York and based in the Bay Area, she earned her 500-hour teacher training certification from Yoga Garden in San Francisco and has been teaching since 2020.

Stephenie Williams

Meet our newest instructor!

Stephenie started her yoga journey in 2012, after being introduced to the practice through fitness videos during high school gym class. She was immediately drawn to the sense of relaxation and meditative release that yoga offered. 

 

Over the years as the demands of life increased, the dedication to her yoga practice also increased. For Stephenie, yoga is a practice of being in the now, about being completely in the present moment. When pulled out of the mind and settled into the body, all else falls away. The physical practice of yoga itself is a meditation, a journey to acceptance and allowing everything to just be. 

 

After many years of practice and searching for a yoga teacher training, Stephenie finally completed her 200-Hour YTT in the Summer of 2022 through the EkaShri Schools of Yoga. Trained in the style of Vinyasa Krama, Stephenie structures her classes in a step by step format that combines both strength and flexibility while offering modifications to maintain accessibility for all. Expect movement, breath, and meditation for an energizing and uplifting class. 

 

Off the mat you can find Stephenie drawing, reading, spending time in the garden, cooking something up in the kitchen, or going kayaking and camping around California.
