Stephanie Smilas Living mindfully, wearing many hats.

Stephanie began her meditation journey more than 20 years ago on the yoga mat. She admits though, that it wasn’t love at first practice. It took much exploration to find other styles that she could really connect to. Because of her own experience, she’s particularly interested in teaching various methods to help her clients delve into the breadth of the topic. She completed her yoga teacher training diploma in 2010 while living overseas and opened a studio shortly afterwards.

Since returning to Australia she has continued teaching yoga and meditation while working in the corporate world. More recently Stephanie focuses on teaching mindful living and self discernemnt to mainstream organisations and individuals. The aim is to positively support people with an emphasis on effective communications and to challenge the way mindfulness.
