Welcome to Yoga 42, specializing in yoga instruction for elite athletes.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Class with Steph is an incredibly unique and rewarding experience. As a former competitive athlete, I appreciate the combination of endurance, power, balance, flexibility, and rhythm she incorporates into her practice. However, Steph’s greatest strength as a teacher is her ability to get your mind locked in the zone so you can maintain that deep sense of focus from start to finish. She is the best yoga teacher I’ve had the opportunity to work with and her resume speaks for itself.”
— Walker, P., Student
