Meet your instructor: Steph

Hi, I’m Steph, I work as a secondary school science teacher and part-time yoga instructor.  During my spare time, I try to keep myself outside as much as possible – preferably on the beach.

My yoga journey started when I lived in Sydney, Australia.  During this period, I went through some extremely tough times and without any family or friends to help, I had to look elsewhere to try and improve my day-to-day life.  There were yoga studios everywhere, and I began to enjoy all the benefits of the different styles on offer. I really started to fall in love with the practice when my daughter started school and I became friends with two school mums, both who happened to be yoga teachers. I learnt so much from how they lived their whole lives according to the eight limbs of yoga. I left classes feeling completely different, and this revolutionised my view on just how much power yoga can have on your body.  From this point onwards, I was hooked and realised it was just the thing that I’d been missing.

Back home, my yoga journey continued, shining more awareness into my life that I’d previously overlooked. One massive gain was developing the ability to sit with uncomfortable feelings and using my breath to get me through anything unpleasant. Practising yoga has taught me so much as it is not a linear journey with an end point. It taught me to embrace the natural ups and down within the practice and lean into my inner dialogue to make any improvements, which could then mirror everyday life, helping me navigate any stress more effectively.

Wanting to take my passion of yoga further, I signed up to a yoga teaching course and qualified as an instructor in 2019.  I teach Vinyasa and sometimes Ashtanga and Yin classes if needed.  It is an absolute delight, pleasure, and privilege to be able to pass on my love of all things yoga to whoever I can.  If students experience a fraction of the benefits I do, then it makes all worthwhile.  Yet, the most wonderful part of yoga to me is that it is a continuous journey, always with something new to learn.
