Change Instigator, Board Member, Teacher
Stephanie Draus, ND, RYT-500 is a naturopathic doctor, a yoga and meditation instructor, and a lifelong defender of the right of all women to speak our minds, control our own bodies, own our power, and take up space. A native of Chicago and a graduate of Loyola University, she is proud to support Hip Circle’s mission to empower women all over the world from her current home in Mystic, Connecticut, USA. Stephanie is certified in Embodyoga, Mindful Yoga Therapy, and as a Grief Movement Guide. Her meditation instruction is based in Vipassana practice as taught in the Shambhala tradition. Her teaching focuses on a rooted experience of body, which connects breath, mind, and spirit to bone, muscle, and fascia. She finds joy in movement and in the marvels of the body (anatomy is power!) and finds peace in the connection of breath to movement and body to mind. Breathe, laugh, honor your skeleton!
