Stephanie Schwalm

Owner, CYT, IPT Professional

Stephanie began her yoga journey in her early thirties. As a new mom, suffering from Post Partum Depression, she found it hard to do this for herself, but as she did it, she felt better, mentally and physically. Over the weeks of taking classes, she began to lose weight and learned to relax, which gave her the courage to head back to the gym and went on to have a 50lb weight loss. During this time, she took a leap of faith and with the encouragement of her instructors, she enrolled in a yoga teacher program. Stephanie began her training at Sanctuary Studios in Plymouth and received her 200 hour certificate in Transformational Yoga, which is predominately anatomy based. During those studies, she received certifications to teach chair yoga, SUP(Stand Up) Paddleboard Yoga as well as her Thai Massage Certification. She then began training at the world renown yoga school Kripalu in the Berkshires. She has studied under Tari Prinster (Y4C) to help people in their recovery of cancer.  She began the study of a new modality, Integrated Positional Technique, to help people live pain free, with top notch neuromuscular therapist (NMT) Lee Albert. Stephanie, after 2 1/2 years of training and clinicals, is one of nine from the first graduating group of students  with a level 4 certification.

Her newest certification is in Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra (R). She studied this with its creator, Jennifer Reis. 

Stephanie also offers IPT sessions, Thai Massage, Group and Individual Private Sessions.



Laurie has been practicing yoga for over 20 years. Laurie was into pursing a certification in yoga instruction and in 2009 she began her path in sharing her passion for yoga and all it can give. When one comes to Laurie's class the experience gives a feeling of peace and joy. Classes are differentiated- anyone can come to class and get a good stretch because Laurie gives several options and modifications for each pose. Laurie's philosophy is that "Every body is different and all of our genes and experiences  are different. We can try and reach the perfect pose and attempt to clear our minds, we may never get there, but we will keep striving to reach it.  The practice of yoga incorporates many things; meditation, breath work, asanas or poses and more. Laurie instructs students in Hatha Yoga and varies every class; she has never taught the same sequence twice!

Hi, I'm Jess and I love sharing yoga with everyday people like myself!

Not Flexible?

I got your stretches!

Too anxious or stressed? 

I got your "keep calm"!

Off kilter?

I got your balance!

In my 35 years, I have gone through periods of everything from anxiety/depression and daily pain from scoliosis to complete inability to focus! I tried everything from alchohol to ADD meds just trying harder and harder to be perfect. After finding that a regular yoga practice began bringing it all back into balance and perspective, I was hooked. 

If you arent perfect, and you'd like to relax and find some balance, please come play with us!

You'll fit right in!

Sarah was first introduced to yoga in 2004 during the pregnancy with her son.  She continued her practice after giving birth in order to get back into shape.  She began to notice that not only did her body change but yoga also had a profound effect on her postpartum depression.  This sparked an intense curiosity with the mind-body connection.  She became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2011 after completing a 900-hour program in Massage Therapy and Complementary Studies at the Salter School.  In 2014 she followed her longtime dream and enrolled in the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Sanctuary Studios in Plymouth.  Sarah is trained in multiple modalities including Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Sport Massage, Myofascial Release, Transformational Yoga Senior Yoga, Meridian Yoga, and energy work.
