Hi! I'm Stephanie
My healing journey began when I was a freshman in college. In an elective sculpture class (that I LOVED so much, even to this day), I made friends with an amazing human- Alyssa. She introduced me to my first yoga class. Whether she knows it or not, this helped to change my life forever.
After taking one yoga class, I was hooked! I loved the way my body felt, the way my mind felt, and how everything was just somehow better after class. I practiced 6 days a week, sometimes 7, and couldn’t get enough! As a high school mathematics teacher in training, I knew this was something I also wanted to bring to schools. I believed teenagers could benefit so much from asana, and wanted to help provide them access to this beautiful practice.
For a while, my practice was mostly physical. I played with some meditation here and there, journaled a bit sometimes, but yoga was really where it was at for me. About a year later, I met another woman who would help to change my life forever- my teacher, mentor, healer, friend, and so many other titles that would take another 3 lines of text to list- Janet.
My work started with Janet when I was 19. Through Reiki, destiny sessions, past life regressions, and so many other things over the years, I was able to heal and learn about myself in ways that I never could have imagined. Through our partnership and my dedication to the work, I was able to constantly evolve, making choices that would serve my highest good.
A few years later, I took the leap and became a certified yoga instructor and did exactly what I intended to do- I brought yoga to schools. I founded a yoga program at the high school I was employed at, teaching freshman girls about yoga, breathwork, meditation, and mindfulness. The outcome was amazing. Students loved my class, craved the teachings, and really used them to make better decisions in their lives. It was profound.
Soon after, I was accepted into a program at Teachers College, Columbia University to pursue my other dream- getting a PhD in mathematics education to make a meaningful impact in education on a larger scale.
This is when things got interesting.
My fiancé and I moved to be closer to the university. We got married and had a BEAUTIFUL wedding, but then things began to change. The pandemic hit and life became different. In quarantine, like so many other people, I began to really sit with myself and what I wanted from life. Things were coming up, relationships were shifting, and there was a lot of raw emotion. This time is a beautiful blur of laughter, tears, love, loss, lessons, and awakenings that propelled me to where I am now.
At the time, I was doing the work alone. I was feeling all the feels, but using the tools and the teachings I learned over the years to guide myself, commit to a home yoga practice, and dig deep into who I was. I thought I was Stephanie, the mathematics teacher who liked yoga. However, I am more than that- much more.
After moving a few more times, working with some different teachers, and learning more and more about my own spirituality and heart’s desires, I became increasingly unhappy with teaching. I was angry, annoyed, and frustrated at all times. I felt like I had no time for myself or my family. This was NOT the life I wanted- and I was able to see that clearly after all of the hard work I did with myself.
So- I quit. I changed gears. Took some space to gain clarity on the situation.
What happened next was pure magic. I got a call from Janet- we started working together again in 2021- and she invited me to be a part of her mystery school. I knew this was what I was manifesting and what I was looking for so I said YES!! Another leap of faith.
Since then, life has been a series of synchronicities. While there were still hard lessons to be learned and cycles that needed breaking, all of these events were such blessings to help me evolve. I feel connected to who I am at my heart more than ever before, and I am SO thrilled to be able to re-introduce myself to the world.
So- Hello! My name is Stephanie Braine. I am an empath and highly sensitive person who has felt deeply since I was a child. I love to be silly, laugh, sing, dance, make art, take pictures, create, and read books. I am Stephanie, a woman with beautiful intuitive gifts, a true passion for teaching and learning, and a love that runs so deep for this Earth and all of her gifts. I am an intuitive healer, reiki practitioner, yoga teacher, numerologist, artist, teacher, life-long student, wife, and cat mom to 3 beautiful fur babies.
Reiki, coaching, and intuitive guidance has helped me more than I can ever explain in this life. It has changed my life, helped me get to the core of my being, and step fully into myself, my power, and my sovereignty. Through this work, I am honored to offer healing, yoga, and intuitive services, events, and so much more to pay it forward, and help guide others on their paths to greatness.
It is so nice to meet you.
