Stephy J, lover of movement, spent the majority of her life dancing, with decades of training from classical ballet, jazz, hip-hop, modern, contemporary dance and so much more. She danced professionally for 6 years following her undergraduate studies in Psychology, her last professional stint was with Lauri Stallings and gloATL wherein she had a life altering experience with the gaga movement system (created by Ohad Naharin). Through the deep spaces explored in gaga, Steph made the transition from “dancer” to “moving artist”.
From this moment in her life Steph began teaching from the foundation and truth that each of us hold the capacity to create meaningful and pleasurable movement that can facilitate healing ourselves from the inside out.
Stephanie is in her 15th year of teaching and is currently teaching both Core Fusion and yoga at Exhale Mind/Body spa in Midtown. She received her 200/hr yoga certification in Rajadiraja (Spiritually centered) yoga in 2013, is certified in Budokon “martial art” yoga with Cameron Shayne, and has most recently fallen head over heels for Bowspring, created by Desi Springer. Steph is also a Usui Reiki master, with heavy interest in the healing and therapeutic arts. Although her love of yoga is strong, Steph will forever and always be a movement enthusiast, guiding students to tap into their unique groove. Come, play, get curious and be moved!
