Intro to Ashtanga with Sat Inder

The Ashtanga Yoga method brings your attention to your breath deeply, to your bandhas (physical and energetic locks in the body) and your dristhi (literally means looking place) while you move through postures in a set sequence.

When not at the studio, she can be found working with young people, seeing live music, and exploring the many gems St. Louis has to offer.

Stephanie Daugherty

Stephanie found yoga, yogahour specifically, as a way to relieve stress from a demanding career. She stayed for the workout. And when class is over, she regularly feels that she can take on anything... post-shower, of course. After completing teacher training at Southtown Yoga in 2015, she looks forward to bringing these same benefits to her students and the community. In addition to yoga, Stephanie enjoys long walks in the park with her pup, the occasional half marathon, a great book, craft beer, and dessert.
