Our Yogi | Stephanie Clift
I am a local gal who loves to be outdoors. Living in paradise allows for some great activities. Some of these activities, however, take a bit of a toll on my body. With my yoga practice I'm able to balance my life with movement, breath and mindfulness. I am even able to play outside better and with more ease! All of my life I have played team sports. My first introduction to meditation was through college soccer, but my first real experience in a hot room was in October of 2013 my friend invited me to Alpine to do yoga for a cause, I have been hooked ever since. Yoga is a wonderful way to balance everyday living for sports enthusiast like myself and for everyone I know. If you know me, I cannot stop talking at any time of the day, or thinking of what I have to do next in my life except for yoga practice. I have learned what my body is capable of and have pushed my limits and I also have learned that practice takes patience, hard work and also rest. So many beautiful ways that Yoga has changed my life, I have learned to be more accepting, patient, kind, gentle and loving towards myself and others. I love how Yoga heals the body from the inside out. Yoga is so many different things to so many different folks, but I truly am blessed to be a part of BHY, the close connection with my Yogi’s and Yogini’s. I want to share with all that I know what Yoga can do for you, I am so excited to be teaching and looking forward to breakthroughs with students and our shared love for yoga.
