Your Lead

Stephania Spitzer (E-RYT 200, RYT 500) yoga teacher from Mexico City. Passionate about yoga for more than 15 years. She has experienced in her personal life the transformative power of breath, mindfulness, meditation and asana, her beginnings with Iyengar and Vinyasa yoga helped her to make an effective connection with her body.

Stephania is an Experienced Yoga Alliance certified 500h teacher. She completed 200 YTT in Tulum, Mexico where she lived for over a year teaching and hosting retreats and workshops. In 2019 she moved to India to complete 300 YTT and from then on she's been living half-year in India half time in Mexico hosting teacher trainings, retreats and workshops.

Her training includes professional workshops on teaching vinyasa flow and advanced asana, restorative yoga, deeper meditation, subtle body, yoga philosophy, anatomy, the art of sequencing.

She has created unique flowing classes that connect postures with breath and provide dynamism and creativity. Guiding students to reconnect with their body and experience internal and external changes.

Her philosophy when it comes to teaching a yoga class is to forever remain a student. Her goal is to simply be a mediator, to pass along knowledge that she is constantly seeking to absorb. To her, yoga is all about practice; it’s the idea that you can see something that looks impossible and go on a journey to make it possible.

Hmmm.. where to even start?! Life changing, incredible, more than I could have expected, sensational??? Everything about this 200hr training was a dream. Stephania is one of the most educated and passionate teachers I have ever experienced. And fun!!! She is a gift. The location is perfection, right by a beautiful beach and a 15min walk to anything you’d need. The rooms are clean, a lil warm, but I loved it and the fans they provided. The food… the FOOD! Addy knows what she is doing. I’ve traveled the world and I still crave her dishes. You, will, not, be, hungry while training. The most abundant and delicious food ever! Silvia and everyone who worked on site were a blessing. I felt incredibly safe and taken care of. Anything we needed, they had it covered. I miss everyone so much. Honestly, I can’t think of any negative things to say… I want to do it all over again. Thank you so much! Derrick

omg absolutely amazing from the welcoming ceremony to graduation. The classes were great, challenging. I definitely felt like my own personal practice improved 100 percent during these 2 weeks. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to further their practice or if anyone is interested in teaching. Also Addy's meals were absolutely incredible!!! Vegan gluten free for 2 weeks (and although I already eat gluten free) I am not 100% vegan (just the occasional meatless monday), I never felt like I was doing without or lacking in protein. The meals were inventive and varied, we never once had a repeat. And her desserts were to die for. Will definitely buy her cookbook when and if she publishes it. All in all, top to bottom, an absolutely irreplaceable experience that I am so grateful to have experienced and would 100% endorse to anyone. Hoping this school starts doing 100 hr trainings or 300 hr trainings so I can come again.

Maybe a little overpriced but it did take the guess work out of arranging it myself and made it super easy to just show up and go.

Do it! This was such an incredible experience! I was shocked by how much I learned in just two weeks, but also how much I got out of it emotionally and spiritually. I wouldn't say going into it, that I am a particularly spiritual person, but I can't say enough about how healing the two weeks were for me. I loved the structure of the program. It felt intensive but not overly so. I was immersed but there was still plenty of time to lay in the sun, jump in the pool, or go to the beach each day. The beaches and island of Isla Mujeres were beautiful and friendly. Also, the food they provided was incredible. I was nervous about being on my own without knowing anyone, but the group was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I made lifelong friends that I hope to visit throughout the country! I am so grateful I had the courage to just jump in because it was so worth it. Thank you so very much Kootenay Yoga School and Michelle! If you have a chance to do the training with Michelle, you will be supported and encouraged. She met me where I was at and was so gentle while also challenging me. Her style of yoga is really lovely, so I am excited to carry that forward in the way I teach. There were so many other things Kootenay did for us that were so much beyond my expectations but most of them are meant to be surprises, so I'll leave it at that. I don't usually write reviews, but I just had to for this because it was such a powerful expereince. Go if you can!
