Interested in Private Yoga Lessons?
Yoga Teacher Training Certificate 2015
In 2015, I completed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Loft in Bethlehem, PA. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher RYT-200 with the Yoga Alliance. My teaching style is alignment focused and is beginner friendly. 

"Whether in art or yoga, my teaching style is gentle and intended to be of an empowering nature. I hold space for you and let you know that everything I offer is an option- that you always have choice. I am patient and resourceful- if something doesn't work for you, I'll do my best to find another option that will. 

My greatest joy as a teacher is guiding people to do things (for any number of reasons) they didn't think were possible. I like helping people quiet their inner critic and to discover that the journey is often much more important than the destination."

One hour private yoga lessons are $55 each. I am also open to teaching public classes at your yoga studio, or private group lessons at your business.

"Stephanie is an engaging teacher who has an ability to foster community while teaching a very personal process through artistic expression. She teaches from experience and that adds weight to her words. She also has a great sense of humor!" - Tina Stroh, Founder and Co-owner of just plain yoga studio

"Her knowledge of her art is as deep as her ability to transmit that knowledge to people at every level of skill. She is a gifted teacher, a talented artist, and a great person." - Ron Bloch, President, CEO at ELH&W Corporation

"Stephanie is an energetic artist and teacher who is inspirational and professional. Stephanie is a great guide and teacher who is easy to understand. Stephanie has a manner of empowering others to discover and use their talents as a manner of self-expression and healing."  - Melissa Cook, Clinician at Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center

“Two years ago I took a meditative mandala drawing working shop with Stephanie Smith, and my life changed.  I learned to use mandala drawing as a fun and relaxing meditation activity, since I had great difficulty quieting my mind in a traditional meditative way.  Not only did I enjoy this new creative activity but it open up new doors to how I see the art of mandalas, whether created or existing in nature.” - Heather Rodale, President Healing Through The Arts

07/10 Mandala workshop at the Summer Rhythm Renewal in Loretto, PA

"Stephanie is a bold and fearless artist who creates beautiful works of art!  She is also a wonderful teacher, and I have had the privilege to take her mandala workshop several times. Each time, she has lead me to a place where I feel comfortable to express what is deep inside … the place where I am no longer “thinking”, but simply creating. It is such a freeing experience! Thank you Stephanie for being such an inspiring guide!" -Jaqui MacMillan, Drum For Joy!

"Cathartic. Inspirational. Uplifting. These are all words to describe Stephanie Smith's mandala workshop.  Not only did her class facilitate an emotional release for me, but it helped me remember the simple childhood joy of putting crayon to paper.  Thanks to her, my son and I are now drawing together almost every day.  Stephanie makes everyone feel like an artist, and she may just help you transform your life in the process.  I am grateful to her for her help and guidance, and would highly recommend her class." - Kim Cooper

Mandala Class
07/09 Mandala workshop at the Summer Rhythm Renewal in Loretto, PA.

"I had the pleasure of attending Stephanie's mandala workshop during Jim Donovan's Summer Rhythm Renewal this past July... She had a most creative way to allow us to find the creativity within and let go of control. Having a "Type A" personality, and wanting very much to be in control of my art, made this quite challenging. That was a good thing, and Stephanie guided in a way for me to be imaginative and find inspiration for my mandala from within, instead of trying meet an expectation. I received a lot more than my finished mandala that day; I rediscovered my affection for drawing/painting and the creative muse that emerges when I just let go and let my spirit guide me on the journey." - Darlene Ralicki

My Mandala workshop at Circle of Trees Retreat
October 2010 Circle of Trees Women's Retreat Milford, PA

"I wasn't really certain what an afternoon of "doodling" could really tell me about my personality or place in life!  Little did I realize that nary an hour later I'd be staring at some of my biggest strengths...and problems...illustrated in magic marker and colored pencil on the desk before me!  I really enjoyed the workshop and left with a sense of respect for the art of mandala!  Stephanie is a great facilitator and her session is very worthwhile!" -  Kent Tonkin
