CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
Steph is an E-RYT 200 certified yoga instructor with 18 years of teaching experience and self-confessed “anatomy nerd.” She is revered, among those in the know, for her ability to pinpoint what’s going on with your body — what’s causing that pain in your hip or that tightness in your psoas.
At Mala, Steph has created a place that feels joyful and inviting, a safe space where students can bring their moms or boyfriends to give yoga a try. Steph loves teaching students of all experience levels, and one of primary goals is to help you manage the physical and emotional challenges of the modern age through yoga's ancient poses.
Warm and welcoming, passionate and personal, funny and full of life, she not only remembers your name, she remembers your injury history and the unique way your body moves. She is, quite simply, the one yoga teacher you will never forget.
A competitive runner, Steph is also the founder of The Run Studio, an innovative, first-of-its-kind program designed entirely for runners of all abilities.
Co-Founder & Director
Angela’s unique approach to the practice is an original hybrid of several yoga lineages, combined with her experience in dance and anatomy study, both in formal settings and through caring for personal injuries.
Each class you take with Angela is a carefully selected blend of movements achieving a grounded and complete whole. Deep structural alignment is the starting point, creating the foundation for a successful practice. From there, she makes way for subtle shifts of body and mind to help you find your own bases and pillars. She pays special attention to the different needs of different bodies, offering assistance and adaptations that are not found in any book, but are the result of her own study, practice, and wisdom.
Angela’s meditation philosophy is unconventional as well. Because she knows how challenging the stillness of meditation can be, how intimidating it can be to walk into the studio to face your own silent thoughts and breathing, Angela is committed to making the practice accessible in a warm and friendly environment. There is no dogma or judgment. There are no “silly” questions, and any response or feeling is welcome. She offers tried-and-true techniques but is wholly adaptable to your needs. Simply put, she wants to find what works for you.
