Warrior Yoga


This class is taught by:

Stephanie Grubbs

Yoga found Stephanie in 1992 while living in Key West during a life filled with roller-blading, swimming, scuba diving, and running. She still loved these activities but nothing quite made her feel whole and complete like yoga did. In her early 40’s as a mother of two girls, she decided to pursue becoming an instructor in order to share the gift of yoga with others. She brings her motherly compassion and her children’s curiosity to her teaching, integrating breath work throughout to support and enhance mind-body awareness. Her classes are accessible to all levels of abilities and incorporate modifications for those new to yoga and for individuals with special needs.
 
Her passion is working with Wounded vets and first responders, giving back to those who have sacrificed so much.

Teaching Style:
Alignment-based; I want my students to feel an experience rather than their body “look” a certain way; it’s ok to smile and laugh

Experiences and Certifications:
YRT200, Yoga Warriors Certified, Workshops include: Adaptive, Yin, Chair, Restorative

Favorite Asana:
Chaturanga Dandasana – requires strength, mindfulness and the experience of subtle alignment focus
Warrior Yoga is for veterans, active duty, and first responders only and is a complimentary class based on Mindful Yoga Therapy practices. The MYT protocol is an empirically informed, clinically tested program comprised of five main tools: Pranayama (breathing), Asana (physical yoga postures), Yoga Nidra, Meditation, and Gratitude. Yoga practices can be a powerful complement to professional treatment for trauma and PTS--and have had a lasting positive impact on many veterans and active duty personnel who have worked with us. Mindful yoga practices can provide relief, and work to develop the supportive skills that help in leading a full life.
