Stefini is so great at meeting others where they are within their own yoga practice and helping them feel comfortable to learn
Don’t be fooled that this class isn't challenging! Stephani makes this class inclusive for all levels. It is what you make it. Major strength building for all levels here. The breath practice alone will make your day!
Stefini's great instruction and pause for Triangle pose made me a have a whole new perspective for stretching my body and mind! Loved the class.
Awesome instructor. Love the studio as well. It has a very tranquil feeling. I cannot wait for my next class!
I was there this morning. What a calming and beautiful studio space. Stefini is a caring and gifted teacher who is soothing and very informative. A great place to practice yoga!!! Jaimie L.
Sundog Yoga is amazing! I absolutely loved it! From the moment I walked in the door I felt so welcomed & when I left I knew I would be coming back. I can't wait for my next class!!!
Stefini with Sundog is an amazing instructor! I loved how she gave our group different options so beginners wouldn’t feel intimidated but experts weren’t bored. Her genuine desire for you to learn and her passion for yoga fills the room. Highly recommend.
I have taken yoga in the past and it never clicked. One class with Stefini made all the difference. The way she thoroughly describes: each movement, where to put pressure, where to release, how to breathe, it all made sense. Stefini mentioned a few alternatives (hand placement / blocks) that you could use as well. Being a beginner, I loved having numerous options to work with in finding the pose. I will be back!
I love Sundog Yoga. Stefani is wonderful with beginners as well as the experienced . I took my 11 year old granddaughter, Madison, as a guest today and she was welcomed with open arms. It was such a great experience for her! Thank you again.
Stephani is so calming and can adapt for any ability level. This is a good instructional focus class to build your practice.
Stefini led a much needed hip opener session and restorative poses with so much work from home sitting.
Sundog Yoga Studio has a very relaxed atmosphere to practice in. Stefani is very knowledgeable & personable in her teaching approach. I would highly recommend this place and hope to go back soon.

Sundog Yoga Studios opened October 1, 2018 in Montgomery, Texas and we moved to Rogers, AR in November 2020. Our classes and events are virtual since our move and we continue to embody the true yoga spirit; cultivating awareness, encouraging a sense of community, and providing the opportunity for some to begin their yoga journey while others continue to deepen their practice. We are seeking a more optimal state of balance with our mind, body, and spirit by integrating a regular practice of yoga, breath work, and meditation.
Asanas are the physical postures of a yoga practice or the poses and probably the most well know aspect of yoga in the West. "Sthira sukham asanam" refers to the balance of opposites in poses. How do you demonstrate effort and surrender in a pose? How do you remain rooted down yet light and lifted in a pose? The practice of the postures is an essential tool for balancing the physical body and asanas prepare our bodies for meditation.
Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning lengthening of the breath, prana or life force. Ancient yogis believed they were born with a certain number of breaths in their lifetime. They practiced pranayama to slow their breathing rate and increase lung capacity in an effort to extend their life span. Pranayama effects us at the root of our physical, emotional, and spiritual being and it helps to prepare our minds for meditation.
Meditation is about allowing our attention to settle in on the gaps and stillness between each of our thoughts. We do this by observing our thoughts without judgement, not getting caught up in their storylines, and then letting go. Meditation can create a sense of expanding or extending time because we focus on the present moment, letting the past stay in the past and not being guided by our limiting internal scripts that try to predict the future.
