Testimonials

“Very good. She knows her subject and able to get it across in understandable manner. It was very interesting. Example and illustrations were very good.”

“So interesting, and hopeful, and more than I anticipated. Stephani explained this very complex science in a say that I was able to grasp – and become increasingly awed by the intelligence our bodies and mind and everything within working together. She tied this information beautifully to yoga asanas and living. She made me hungry to learn more. Thank you Stephani!”

“This topic blew me away. Many things to think about and consider. the topic was right on with the Yogic philosophy of putting distance between ‘you’ and your ills.”
