Morning Rise Yoga, Core Yoga & Flow with Grace
Aly practices and lives what she teaches, yoga is a part of everything she does. Her hope is that in teaching others the practice of yoga they may find a healthier, energized, enlivened, focused, empathetic, holistic, empowered, and spiritual version of themselves; a better understanding of their true selves. This is the real value of yoga, recognizing that we can shape our bodies and minds, that everything we need is within, we don’t have to look for it outside.
Strength Yoga, Tranquil Flow Yoga & Serenity Yoga
Stef is particularly interested in helping others release both physical and mental tension and in helping students find authenticity within their yoga practice. When not in the studio, you can find her hanging out with her two cats and her husband, or out snapping photos and exploring nature.

It was then that she hatched an idea to pay these gifts forward, and share yoga with others through teaching.
