Stephanie has always been passionate about yoga. She practiced during her pregnancy and found it so rewarding and joyful that it seemed a natural next step to complete the 200-hour teacher training program at the Yoga Loft in order to share her love of yoga with others. She currently received her 30 hour 5Elements Ayurveda Vinyasa teacher training in OBX (2/19) During her classes, she brings a playfulness and confluence of all types of yoga to make it fun and enjoyable. Yoga allows a sense of freedom that we find in our bodies, we connect to our vibe on our mats and in these moments we leave class with savasana bliss.
Stephanie lives in Williams Twp, PA with her husband Jonathan, 2 boys Kohlmann & Hunter, dog Hooper, Meatball the bearded dragon along with Tanner their leopard gecko. You can find Stephanie at the beach, parks or outdoors when she’s not on her yoga mat XO
Yoga is a moving meditation that allows me to really listen to my body and feel connected to it. Over time I am finding more on my mat. Not only do I find strength and balance but I have found a firm foundation that I carry with me to navigate life.
Wanting to deepen my knowledge and practice of yoga, I completed the Yoga Loft 200 Hour certification program. My desire is to share the gift of mindful detailed patterns of movement and breath with intention while creating inner awareness and lightness as we attain our individual goals in our practice. I enjoy teaching themed vinyasa flow focused on alignment. Yoga can transform you and benefit you in endless ways. Living in this crazy busy life we lead, we need to make space for self-health care. To me this means to take time for yourself, pay attention to what your body and mind are trying to tell you. The answer is often in front of you, if you take the time to listen. The journey inward, will lead outward.
Love Life, Live Love

Meghan’s love for yoga blossomed quickly. In 2015, she dropped her three young girls off at Kids Yoga and ended up getting sucked into the yoga class in a neighboring room. Yoga, at first, was a physical outlet but she soon came to see that it was much more than “just a yoga class”. Meghan is passionate about the power of yoga and meditation to change our lives for the better. She believes that the skills we develop during practice can be applied off the mat and have a profound impact on the way we interact with ourselves and each other.
Meghan completed her 200 hour Power Yoga teacher training in January 2018 with Create Karma and House of Yoga in York…led by Sarah Yukie Gingrich and Jackie Dalheimer - both Baptiste trained. She is anxious to build upon what she has learned and already has several continuing education workshop completed and more planned.
Meghan lives in Plainfield Township with her husband, 3 girls, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 rabbits, 2 goldfish and a guinea pig. When she’s not practicing yoga, you can find her homeschooling her girls, traveling, listening to music or just enjoying the sunshine.
