'Breathe in, Breathe out, rest in the moment, really feel your heart's joy as your mind & body rejuvenate  '

Stephanie teaches a variety of Yoga: Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga and Meditation, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga and Yoga and Relaxation in various gyms, spas and Yoga studios in Surrey and Berkshire. Also teaching at events in London and UK Fitness and Wellbeing Festivals around the country. 


Stephanie came to the mat for her first Sun Salute back in 2001 and ever since then has been committed to regular yoga practice especially during her time working in Television, Film and Education. As a student of Yoga it has been an incredible journey of self discovery. She has travelled the world and with every new step her practice as a student and as a teacher has deepened. 


Her passion is to inspire and encourage her students to grow in strength and good health within their own Yoga practice and find that inner confidence to just be. Reminding her students to be kind to themselves along the way.  Laughter is always welcomed in class and Stephanie's warm personality puts you at ease. At the foundation of Stephanie’s class, is her knowledge in anatomy and the unique health benefits of yoga.  Incorporating her knowledge as a Sports Massage Therapist within her yoga sequencing. She combines uplifting sequencing for body and mind balance with her relaxing and encouraging voice you leave the studio with a sense of feeling restored and rejuvenated. As a keen long distance (marathon) runner & surfer Stephanie has felt and seen the benefits of Yoga within her own athletic development. She now regularly teaches yoga to those who take part in a variety of sports such as running, football and cycling as part of their training for up and coming races and fitness events. The journey is ever evolving and Stephanie believes it is with every new breath that we learn, we grow and we heal.


Stephanie is a SUPYoga instructor, so if you can’t find her on the mat you will find her on the SUP board. Her love of yoga and the freedom of the open water combined. 

Stephanie has written for various magazines on health, fitness and wellbeing.  You can find her most recent Wellbeing writing in the August issue of Woman Alive Magazine.  Stephanie created her You Tube channel Gracefulbow Yoga last year (2019) and you can find a variety of free yoga and meditation classes there that you can practice anytime and anywhere.  


There are many health and wellbeing benefits to practicing yoga regularly. And Stephanie loves to welcome beginners as well as those who have been practicing for years, yoga is for all. Come and see for yourself, start your yoga journey with Gracefulbow Yoga.
