Yoga Educator

Presenter Raffa Yoga Teacher Training Program

Registered Yoga Teacher (500 hour, E-RYT 200, YACEP)

An instructor at Raffa since 2010, Stefany believes you are never too old or too young to learn fabulous new things. Her teaching style incorporates a welcoming blend of yoga styles which she integrates into easy to understand instruction for students with various levels of experience.

Not a naturally flexible person, Stefany is passionate about helping yogis of all levels, regardless of their degree of flexibility, to deepen their practice through luxurious, Yin style yoga classes where mind, body and spirit connect and align.

Stefany’s clear, precise and intuitive instruction combined with her encouraging and playful teaching style allows students to improve the fundamentals of their yoga practice regardless of their level of experience. Stefany’s classes regularly include tips and advice regarding the development of a personalized home practice and the importance of incorporating the knowledge one learns by attending a regular program of group yoga instruction.

Her personal yoga instruction has included anatomy and physiology, yoga philosophy, meditation, pranayama, the subtle body and the science of Ayurveda. Stefany is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher and continuing education yoga instructor (RYT-500, E-RYT 200 and YACEP) and is passionate about sharing yoga information with her students.

When she’s not teaching yoga, Stefany works as the marketing director on the Briarcliffe Senior Living Campus and she is also a Certified Dementia Care Practitioner.

Whether your yoga experience includes “doing” Yoga at a gym, miming to a recording, practicing yoga at a studio OR having never experienced yoga at all, Stefany invites you to come to class and find ease on your mat. We all begin somewhere…

My favorite quote is: “ Give thanks for a little and you will find a lot”. I love being in service to the Raffa community. At Raffa, yoga is the great equalizer. On our mats, we are one with ourselves in that moment. Nothing else exists. I love being able to help people find their breath, give themselves permission to relax and to find peace for the moments we spend together each week.
