Stephanie Shershow

Certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher

Stephanie’s first exposure to yoga was at the age of 16 when she was introduced to Kundalini yoga by Lisa Whitting, owner of The Gothic, in Belfast. Trying to help her with her anxiety and distress, Lisa also attuned her in Reiki. While in college as a vocal performance and Opera major at Syracuse, Stephanie took semesters of yoga, thai chi, and ballet. It wasn’t until Stephanie came into a program of recovery did she understand the true value of yoga as a way to heal the spirit and honor the body. She did her yoga teacher training in British Columbia with Moksha and received her certificate of teaching in the US with AmericanAthletic Association in 2012. She completed her Ayurvedic Yoga and Nutrition certificate in Portland Oregon at Yoga Pearl and has been a Barre teacher since 2014. Stephanie is the former owner of YogaRosa, heated yoga in Thomaston, Maine and has taught on private yachts where she was employed as a chef for many years.

Nothing touches her heart more than the opportunity to teach donation classes for the Family Restored and for another local sober house where she donates her time. She also gives weekly classes to the employees of the Black Tie Company. Yoga has always been a spiritual exchange for her, and is so grateful to share with the community in Portland. She wants you to always remember : “your light is your gift. Shine.” SS
