Stephanie Schwartz (she/her) is a NYC-based ERYT-500 yoga teacher, teaching at studios around the city like Equinox, Pure Yoga, Alo Yoga, and One Yoga House. Born in the Midwest, Stephanie moved to NYC in 2012 for a chance to work in fashion. After a chance encounter with yoga on a blind date (yes, seriously), she was hooked. Eventually she decided to pursue teaching yoga full time.
Stephanie is a firm believer in movement as medicine, and in yoga as metaphor. She enjoys crafting classes that reveal insights to practitioners that extend beyond their experience practicing asana (physical yoga). Her greatest goal is always to empower students to create their own practice - one that is authentic, inspiring, and revealing. She wants her students to walk away from class uplifted and armed with self-knowledge (in addition to extremely sweaty).
In Stephanie’s class, you’ll be challenged mentally and physically, and can expect to walk away having tried something new. She recommends coming with an open mind and heart - the yoga works if you let it.
