Bloom where you're planted.
We don't need to know or prove anything. Just to be, take the risk, and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. You have the right to be you.
Stephanie Coggins, 200 RYT, Vinyasa and Buti
From a young age, Stephanie has been an athlete. Whether it was competitive cheerleading, gymnastics, figure skating, or playing street HOCKEY with her brother, she loves being active. As she became older, her muscles WOULD sore quicker and her joints were stiff immediately after a workout. She admits she wasn’t originally draw to yoga and the one class she tried at the gym left her feeling, just, blah.
In 2013, Stephanie NEEDED SOMETHING MORE TO HER LIFT and decided to try a class at a local yoga studio with a few friends. This time, not only did she want her body to be relieved from pain, she also wanted her mind to be clear. When she walked into the studio she felt a sense of community, love, and dang, did it smell good! Shortly after, THE ACHES AND PAINS DISAPPEARED and she was starting to feel herself again.
Over the past few years, she has become passionate about her practice and using THE TOOLS SHE'S LEARNED to help her students who might be struggling PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY just like she had been. “The practice of yoga is a practice and every time we show up ON OUR mat THE PRACTICE WILL FEEL different. Maybe you didn’t sleep well the night before or you’re anxious about the day ahead of you. Whatever the day may bring, what’s important is that you leave what doesn’t serve you purpose on YOUR MAT."
Stephanie is has continued her practice with a certification in Buti Yoga, a practice that empowers women and men of all ages to promote happiness and health. In the future she would like to be certified in working with post-traumatic stress and chronic conditions such as grief, depression, and anxiety.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
