Welcome to MarkStephensYoga.com, where you'll find information on my yoga classes, teacher trainings, continuing education workshops and yoga retreats plus a variety of free instructional resources - an asana video library, asana slideshows, guided classes, talks on teaching and practicing yoga, inspiring poetry and more.
My approach to yoga starts with the idea that best teacher one will ever have is alive and well inside, and that much of the practice is about coming to clearly hear and honor our inner teacher. All of my classes, workshops and trainings tap into the deep wisdom of ancient yoga traditions while weaving in modern insights into the practice, an eclectic approach designed to prepare teachers for a lifetime of sharing sustainable and transformational yoga experiences.
Enjoy exploring. Namaste!
