Stephania grew up as a ballerina and a golfer, who grew quickly to love hitting the gym solely for the challenge of strengthening herself for sports performance. Her love for yoga and fitness flourished so much that she became a certified personal trainer in 2013 through AFAA and began teaching group fitness and yoga as a side hobby in college. Upon graduating, she realized that it was much more than a side gig, but rather a passion she needed to pursue a career in. Stephania is most passionate about helping others feel their best and strongest selves. She feels as though everyone should be confident in their own skin. Her moto is "work your body, love your body" and she can't wait to see you in class.
