Welcome to Namaste Doing Yoga! My name is Stephanie and I’ve been doing yoga since 2007. It all started with a good friend of mine at Brooklyn College who got her teaching certificate. As one of her first students and a brand new yogi I fell completely in love with yoga and all its benefits. After getting my BS degree in Chemistry in 2011 I moved out to NJ for work. Quite a bold move (literally) at 21 to leave everything you know while battling a ton of health issues and start your life all by yourself. About a year after the move a yoga studio opened up right around the corner from my apartment. The moment I walked in it felt like home. The incredible students and teachers inspired me to get my 200 HR CYT certificate. Here I am on my journey with you and the rest of my students/fellow teachers in hopes to better the lives of everyone I meet. It is such a humbling and wonderful experience to teach at the studio that once welcomed me to my new path (www.jingayoga.com). Stay tuned for updates, videos, how to videos, sequences, photos, tutorials, and a little bit more about my path and why/how I plan to “namaste doing yoga” for the rest of my life. Xoxo my yogis and remember that EVERYONE CAN DO YOGA!
