Stephen started his movement career when he studied dance in college with prominent dance teachers such as Marie Del La Palme, Raul Cruz, Miriam & Leonardo to name a few. He found himself in his first yoga class for the mobility yoga offered and stayed after he fell in love with the spiritual, calming and meditative aspect of yoga. He completed his 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Corepower Yoga in 2014.

Stephen quickly made a name for himself in the O.C. area teaching Acro yoga & compassionate, fun yoga classes. His passion for movement allows him to teach from a place of deep understanding and tradition while making the classes fun & challenging for all levels. His classes are fun and light-hearted, guiding each student to advance within their own body, mentally, and spiritually.

Favorite Yoga Move: 

Revolved Big Toe Pose (Parivrtta Hasta Padangusthasana)

How Has Yoga Benefited You The Most: 

I wanted to be more flexible in dance; this practice started solely physical for me. Over the years, yoga turned into my medicine, keeping my mind and body in shape to live a life of service and happiness.

Reason Started Doing Yoga: 

Yoga was the reason I quit a lifestyle of partying and drinking. (It’s hard to do yoga when your hungover!) Yoga has allowed me to fully accept and love the person that I am in the body I occupy. Yoga has allowed me to see the good in everyone I meet and understand, at some level, we are all deeply connected.
