Yoga Teacher & Retreat Host
Leaving the corporate sector in her 20s, Stela was drawn to the centering and healing power of yoga as a source of sanctuary, which included living in a traditional yoga ashram for some years, immersing herself in the pursuit of personal learning, self-enquiry and service to others.
She went on to undertake her 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training with The Yoga Institute, formally qualifying as a yoga teacher, and credits the mentorship of Dr Michael de Manincor as a pivotal influence on her yoga journey.
Stela is passionate about yoga for mental health and yoga for the support of women and children who have been exposed to trauma and violence, and loves offering a personalised support for everyone’s unique circumstances.
Along with other faculty members, Stela provides a loving and nurturing presence for our yoga retreat attendees.
