About Us

Yoga Arts promotes an authentic student-centered approach to learning the art, science, and philosophy of the Eight Limbs of Yoga. Through skilled and compassionate teaching, our classically trained yoga practitioners invite students to surpass limitations and liberate themselves; as a woman-owned studio, Yoga Arts offers events, classes, and workshops that teach accessible ways to achieve a greater sense of freedom in the body, mind, and consciousness. Together as a community, Yoga Arts is committed to social justice and equity, to integrity, inclusion, and diversity, and to supporting the physical and mental health of the individual, the community, and the world.

Stephanie is personally inspired by the dynamic changes that occur with daily practice, and in the classical teachings of BKS Iyengar, she is committed to encouraging her students to cultivate their own precise and playful practice. All are welcome.
