meet our yoga instructor
Stephanie Congo teaches powerful yoga classes and offers life changing energy medicine sessions. She teaches a variety of workshops, programs and retreats on health and wellness for healing. She has been studying Yoga, Pilates, Meditation and Energy Work for almost 20 years.
Balance is central to Stephanie's life. She strives to be steady and stable, which is apparent in her calm and steady demeanor. An ongoing and consistent spiritual practice enables her to continue to grow and adapt to life's changes. This strong foundation allows her to be present and supportive of her clients and students in their healing journeys.
Her yoga path started with Pilates and Power Yoga classes, with a love for active movement and exercise activities. She loved being able to jump off the couch and run 3 miles, swim, hike a mountain, lift weights, rock climb, canoe and bike. Her life was more balanced when she was fit and strong. Yet, her depression and anxiety ebbed and flowed. She soon found the more she practiced yoga, the more she couldn't live without it. Yoga cleared her mind and balanced her depression and anxiety. With yoga, she could live life with more ease and confidence. The itch to become a Yoga Teacher grew. Fast forward to Shamanic Yoga Teacher Training in 2011 with Jaguar Path Vinyasa Yoga in Massachusetts. Her quest for seeking out specialty teachers around the world has continued to give her the ability to blend unique yoga styles, ultimately teaching her own: "Steph Yoga". Stephanie's expertise is cultivated with over 20 Nationally known Yoga teachers, culminating in over 850 hours of Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.
what is yoga
Yoga is the union of mind, body and spirit. We practice yoga to get better at life. When we blend the three components of yoga, we can in turn be the most balanced, centered and best version of ourselves that we can offer the world. We call it a practice because life is constantly changing and we must constantly practice our adaptation skills. By centering the mind, moving the body and using the breath in ever-changing patterns of movement and rest, we find peace and calm. We deepen and acknowledge the life force within each of us. We notice the subtle shifts and changes both inside and outside of ourselves. We are able to grow strong and take responsibility for how we create and interact in the world.
