Stephanie Schwartz is a yoga teacher based in New York City and is the founder of Stephanie Schwartz Yoga. Stephanie began her yoga journey during her first year in NYC, with a blind date who invited her to take a yoga class. While the date was never to be seen again, Stephanie felt so drawn to the practice that she began attending class every single day. After practicing for about seven years, Stephanie finally decided to go ahead and get certified, intending to teach yoga part time, after work. The universe had other plans, however, and shortly after Stephanie completed her training, she was laid off from her job. She knew it was time to go for it - and thus began her journey to becoming a full time yoga teacher. Since then, Stephanie has trained in Ayurveda, yoga therapy, yoga nidra, restorative yoga, and yin yoga. In 2022, she launched The Money Making Yogi Mentorship program for new teachers to learn business skills as they begin their yoga careers. Stephanie believes that the practice is a metaphor - and that our time spent on our mat is a training ground for the outside world. With Stephanie, you can expect to be challenged physically, mentally, and spiritually - leaving the mat with greater confidence, endurance, and empowerment than when you arrived. Expect to sweat, learn, and definitely laugh along the way!
