Steph Hanson, RYT 200

Steph_Prayer.JPGSteph is grateful to teach and practice in the awe-inspiring yoga community that is Blossom Yoga. A Laramie native, Steph is a provisionally licensed professional counselor working in an elementary school. For her, yoga is about much more than just practicing physical postures. Although she could be described as “obsessed” with asana alignment, she is even more interested in the mental-emotional benefits yoga has to offer. While pursuing her MS degree in counseling at UW, she simultaneously completed her 200 hour yoga teaching certification from Om Time’s Tillai Univeristy in Boulder, Colorado. Since then, she has received over 100 hours of training in styles of yoga that specifically support healing from depression, anxiety, and trauma, including Shannon Paige’s Bhava Vinyasa, Amy Weintraub’s LifeForce ® Yoga, and Hala Khouri’s Yoga Ed curriculum, Teaching Yoga to Those At-Risk. Although she is a die-hard yoga nerd, Steph’s classes are heartfelt and humorous, not stuffy or somber. She believes yoga can be accessible to anyone, regardless of size, shape, color, orientation, or experience. It is her goal to help each student connect to the body, the mind, the heart, and the breath - both on and off the mat. 

“Yoga creates the power to experience that connection fully, deeply, richly, and with all the complexity that human embodiment promises.” – Douglas Brooks
