What People say about Stefanie's Writing Yoga® Retreats and Workshops...

“I am one of Stefanie’s regular yoga students and had a wonderful time at her Writing Yoga® retreat. I feel more focused and positive than I did before the weekend started. I loved the activities she planned and would definitely take another retreat with Stefanie! She is the best hostess and makes everyone feel special.” – Patti C., Educator

“I just loved the whole vibe of the weekend, the interplay of yoga and writing. The thing I might love most about yoga is it teaches me to be present, to stay here and now. I get so bad at that, especially when I don’t practice it, and I think engaging in that frame of mind carries off the mat to the writing space. It did for me, here, anyway.” ~S. Kraemer, Writer
