My name is Steph - I have a gypsy heart and a hippie soul. I'm also a bit of a body-nerd with a sneaky degree in Physiotherapy. I grew up spending summers in & on the water, and I feel most at home when there is somewhere to dip my toes. "Home" is a pretty fluid concept for me - I've called about 8 different countries 'home' in the last 15 years! My whole adult life I worked as a performer in waterski and stunt shows, which is what afforded such fun international opportunities, and a lot of travel. As the stunt world took a toll on my body, I started to dive seriously into yoga - and it completely changed my life. I studied and taught yoga in India for a couple seasons, and started my company Suptopia Floating Yoga in 2014. SUP yoga is where my deep love of nature beautifully collides with my passion for yoga. I love to practice outside - when you take away the walls, the ceiling, the "floor" - you somehow end up so incredibly tuned in to the world around you. Which translates to being so incredibly present within yourself. I also teach Acro Yoga, and love everything that practice asks.. Please trust another, communicate your needs & wants, be curious & creative with how bodies can shape & align, laugh, try again, and above all - PLAY.
Connect with with some of my classes, events, retreats - or book me all to yourself to work on something special.
