Hatha Flow


This class is taught by:

Stephanie Nosco (Staniforth)

I have been practicing yoga asana (physical postures) since 2004, and meditation since 2007. Although my practice started as something physical, most recently meditation has been at the forefront of my practice, as I am interested in how mindfulness can be integrated into yoga asana, as well as overall mental wellbeing. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Eastern Religious Studies as well as an Education Degree from the University of Calgary. I am registered under Yoga Alliance as "E-YRT 500" but over the years have accumulated more than 1000 hours of training from many teachers from a variety of different disciplines; including hatha, kundalini, anusara, athlete specific, vinyasa flow, and yin yoga, as well as Shambhala and Theravada Buddhist meditation. I am so grateful for my teachers Dr. Adela Sandness, Yogi Vishvaketu, Kevin Elandar, Bernie Clark, Jules Mitchell and most recently Sarah and Ty Powers, with whom I am currently mentoring as a part of the Insight Yoga Institute. Despite the help I have had from many amazing teachers, I have come to know that that the real learning must come from practice, which is what I share with my students. I like to think of myself more as a "practice sharer", rather than a yoga teacher. My mission in the role of "teacher" is to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be, through discovering your own potential for practice. As the Buddha said: “No one saves us but ourselves, no one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

Teaching is a privilege for me, it is a gift that nurtures more sacred and genuine connectedness on an off my mat for myself, while providing the space to meet like minded people in this journey of life. It is with great pleasure I simply hold a space so you may learn more about your essence. Buddha said: “The mind is everything. What you think is what you become.” My wish is that we rise above insecurities and limitations and truly see the light within each of us as we navigate transformation and refine our higher selves. Community, movement and authenticity light me up in a big way- See you on your mat!

Yoga found me exactly when it needed to. It felt good to carve out time in my day to stretch and breathe, but the magic happened when I connected with the spiritual side of my practice. I sunk into a deep committed relationship with this thing called yoga and we’ve been serious ever since. Eventually I wanted to learn more about what I had discovered was something that got to me right down into my soul, beyond where any other kind of physical movement had taken me before. During my first teacher training I learned a very simple lesson; yoga guides me towards the best version of myself. I hope that in your own practice you are guided towards that best part of you, where the ego moves aside, you can work though the chaos that life presents and simply feel content with who you are in the moment- even if it’s just for a moment. What you can learn from within yourself can take you as far as you allow it. I feel humbled to be a teacher in this space and a student along side you.

I have been teaching yoga in Calgary since 2009. The saying, “when the student is ready, the teacher appears” has held true for me during my yoga journey. I have been blessed to learn from a variety of wonderful teachers over the years as my practice and understandings evolve. For me, the practice of yoga is a powerful tool for us to really know ourselves on a deep level, to remember who we are and to connect to our life’s purpose. I am so grateful to be teaching at Junction 9! I love getting to know all of the wonderful yogis!

Born and raised in Southern California I began practicing yoga with my mom at age 13 in Laguna Beach, California. When life gets weird I find a good laugh and 90 minutes of mat time are the ultimate fix. My practice and teaching style is an ongoing melting pot of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara, Yin, and Restorative methods. I make a point to find yoga in my travels. I have studied and taught in California, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, and Chile.
In this slowed down class, we have brought focus to alignment. The teacher will offer the building blocks with modifications/alternatives for sun salutations so you will have confidence to head into our Power Class while still giving you a challenge. You will get all the benefits of our flow class, but at a pace to deepen your knowledge, and foundation of the postures. You will be guided through a variety of traditional and non-traditional yoga movements to develop functional ranges of motion and a deeper sense of body awareness. Detailed cuing, creative sequencing and props will help you discover new possibilities of movement. All levels welcome.
 
This is a great class if you are nervous to jump into a Power Vinyasa Class or are dealing with any physical injury that would prevent you from feeling confident in downward facing dog, or sun salutations.
