Enter Educator: Stephanie Walmsley

In Featured by Samatva Yoga0 Comments

Yoga teaches me something new about myself every day. This journey of self-discovery happens on and off my mat because yoga has taught me to look inward to find answers. The most important lesson I have learned so far is self-acceptance and I am an honored to be able to help others with this realization.

HOW I LIVE MY PRACTICE

I try and stay present throughout my entire day. This is a huge challenge but like anything else in life, the more I practice the easier it becomes.

Staying present.

Cashews and coconuts (I’m a vegan )

I love to read and I always have a few things on the go. Currently I am reading Don Quixote.

HOW I HAVE FUN OFF MY MAT

Travelling, trying out vegan restaurants & creating my own recipes, running, snowboarding, scuba diving and spending time with family and friends

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE

I am always happiest exploring new places and trying new things
