About Stephanie


Meet Stephanie Toler

Stephanie is a certified Hatha Yoga instructor with over a decade of experience. She currently lives near Asheville, North Carolina where she writes, paints, and leads all-inclusive yoga retreats. Occasionally she hosts retreats in her two of her favorite spots, the coasts of Ecuador and mountains of Western North Carolina.

Stephanie doesn’t simply teach “yoga.” She holds space for personalized growth while guiding students to a place of self-empowerment – where they learn to heal themselves – which always begins from the inside. She meets her students where they are, from beginners to experienced yogis seeking to learn more advanced asana postures and techniques.

Her classes are more than a physical practice. She teaches holistically with a healing intent, teaching students useful concepts, such as how to work with our energetic body (the Chakras) and practical techniques to help us remain grounded and centered in our everyday lives. She blends physical postures with other healing modalities, such a self-reiki, breathwork, meditation, positive affirmations and more, addressing all levels of being.

In addition to yoga, Stephanie is passionate about writing. Her messages focus on spiritual exploration and personal growth, which she expresses through thoughtful articles and poetry. She is currently working on her first book, Ayahuasca Spirit Medicine. Check out her blog.

A lifelong student, Stephanie recently completed a 500-hour Hatha & Ashtanga yoga certification in Rishikesh, India as well as the Hay House Writers’ Workshop.
