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!
