TRHT Pillar: Racial Healing and Relationship Building


Stefanie (she/her/ella) is a healing artist and CEO who leads with her passionate heart in service to collective freedom. Sacred storytelling, mindful movement, meditations to self and ancestors, and more—it is all to support well-being. 

Stefanie has been on a journey of accessing this potential through the practice of facilitating yoga since 2008 and through the formation of her 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Yena, in 2017. She is ready to contribute all of her talents toward collective freedom, including her talent and experience as a performing and recording artist–healing herself and her community through the healing arts of writing, storytelling and music while inviting others to join her in this walk.

Stefanie has a past of teaching and presenting at various local studios, festivals and organizations  across the nation, including BRIDGE, Dallas Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation, SXSW, Cara Mia Theatre, No More Martyrs, Driftless Yoga Festival, Yogis Unidos, Sedona Yoga Festival, Amphibian Stage Productions, the Human Rights Initiative and more!

Hearing the call from COVID-19 and the collective uprising toward racial justice and healing, Stefanie has launched Collective Awakening: an online community that is anti-racist and inclusive, normalizing human courage and truth through movement, historical and contextual education, sacred sound and self-discovery as we relate to this healing and awakening world around us.

Stef is passionate about fueling a future that is free!

Future Focus

Stefanie feels honored and thrilled to receive this support, as she has a heart full of passion to contribute to this healing world! Stefanie is excited to continue writing her one-woman show, which, when performed, she will share with community audience members her own experiences of trauma, racism and transcendence. This is to help us normalize the universal truth that we all experience trauma, and encourage us to transcend together through performance art, sacred storytelling and music. 

Stefanie is also excited to launch “Wellness for the Movement,” a monthly online offering of wellness practices of yoga, meditation and awareness of narrative change with the intent to fuel sustainability for all who are a part of conscious change and loving resistance.
