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.
