Stephanie Rio

Steph (she/her) believes that showing up to practice yoga is a path to experiencing joy, empowerment, and growth. She encourages students to meet themselves where they are on their yoga journey, knowing that it is one that is deeply personal and interconnected. She works to create a space where people from all backgrounds and bodies can explore ways to be their authentic selves both on and off their yoga mat.

When coming to practice with Steph, students can expect a thoughtfully sequenced Asana flow, including plenty of options for students to guide their own practice. Steph also loves pairing a complimentary playlist to her flows, allowing the music to deepen the yoga experience. She likes the studio to feel "cozy" so expect to see lots of candles and ambiance in her classes. 

Steph completed her 250 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training in 2012 at Wake Up Yoga in Philadelphia, and Kids and Family Yoga from Yogawood in 2009. Steph had the honor to mentor yoga teacher trainee students at Wake Up Yoga, and has been practicing as a student herself for over 20 years, as well as teaching yoga for 9 years. During the pandemic, Steph also opened an online yoga business. She is grateful to all her teachers who have guided her along this path.

In her free time, Steph likes to hang out with her family, friends, and pets. She loves books, Christmas, youtube vlogs, podcasts, and cold weather!
