Stefani Hoyt RMT, E-RYT500 - yoga educator, yoga therapist, registered massage therapist


Stefani is an Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher at the highest designation through Yoga Alliance with over 3,000 hours of teaching under her belt. Trained in Vinyasa Flow, Yoga Therapy, Prenatal Yoga and Thai Massage she has studied with teachers in Detroit, Montreal, Toronto and Seattle. Greatly inspired by Anusara yoga and Viniyoga, she specializes in teaching yoga privately and mentoring other yoga teachers.  She is a Registered Massage Therapist and an active member of the NHPC, the International Association of Yoga Therapists and the Yoga Alliance. She has studied Holistic Nutrition, Ayurveda and Raw Vegan Culinary Arts and in addition to offering nutritional counseling taught cooking workshops and classes in Southern, Ontario where she used to reside. She owned and ran a yoga studio for 5 years where she taught sometimes eight classes in a day, worked with clientele privately, ran yoga teacher training and even operated a Holistic Catering business. She understands what it is to be busy and more importantly she understands how to help her clients find calm in the midst of that business.

I specialize in private yoga sessions that are empowering & transformational and bring my strengths as a yoga therapist into my group yoga classes. Teaching since 2001, I like to notice the little things - subtle opportunities for refinement, alignment and strength. My classes are the merging of vinyasa flow and yoga therapy. I use fluid sequencing and breath led movement at a slow, strong pace and help my students improve their strength & mobility while decreasing pain. I offer: private yoga sessions (Yoga therapy), community yoga classes, yoga for women's health and yoga teacher training & mentoring.
