"Yoga has been the catalyst that's helped me reclaim my life, release trauma, and build my resiliency. Yoga is powerful. This is why I'm so passionate about sharing it with others." 


Hi, I'm Stephenie, a Trauma-Informed Intuitive Eating Counsellor, Body Confidence Coach, Energy Therapist and Yoga Instructor...that's quite a mouthful. So, why do I do all of this? Why do I teach yoga? My "why" is my story below.


 I spent my life enduring severe criticism from my narcissistic mother. When I was a child, she would feed me cake and say, "You'd be so pretty if you just lost weight." How confusing is that to a five-year-old? I was bullied, teased, and humiliated by classmates at school because I was bigger than they were


As an adult, I spent far too many years in abusive relationships with self-absorbed men who could not truly love me because of their own trauma. This brought up childhood wounds of feeling; “not good enough" or "worthy enough" of being loved. But, unfortunately, I didn't realize it was suffering from complex post-traumatic stress from all the abuse. This trauma caused and maintained my poor body image and disordered eating. 


"Yoga has been the catalyst that's helped me reclaim my life, release trauma, and build my resiliency. Yoga is powerful. This is why I'm so passionate about sharing it with others." 


This is my story. This is my "why." Namaste
