Stefan Walz began practicing yoga in the early 1990’s. As a student he enjoys the calming effect yoga has on his mental and physical well being. In 2017 he was inspired by his wife to enroll and receive a 200 hour certification at Vancouver Yoga Center under the teaching of Melonie Nielsen. His circuitous path to teaching includes a Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and a Bachelors degree in Social Psychology. Stefan enjoys all forms of yoga from Yin, Hatha and even hot yoga! His classes encourage students to listen to their physical form and adjust to the appropriate comfort level. When he isn’t in the studio he enjoys raising two teenage children in tandem with his wife of 25 years and spending time outside hiking, cycling or any form of manual labor.
