Stephanie Enbysk, RYT 200
Stephanie started her yoga journey in January 2018 at YiA Yoga with Lead Trainer Doris Martinez. She came to the mat to discover herself on deeper levels of health and happiness with the motivation of spreading that knowledge to others. In March 2019, Stephanie participated in a 200 Hour YTT at YiA Yoga and became certified. During the training she discovered yoga as her passion and grew deeper in the ancient holistic knowledge and practice. She went beyond the asana and felt the true connection between the body and mind through meditation, breathwork, philosophical discusions and much more that brought a deeper level of peace to her soul.
Stephanie seeks to hold a space of mutual trust and friendship within her classes and empowers her students to love and respect their bodies.
