Best Yoga Instructor

Gold Winner Stefanie Winters

Silver Winner Kelly Wadden

Bronze Winner Estelle Thomson

“I’m pretty authentic in class,” Stefanie Winters says. “I try to relate to people. I have the capacity to empower them and help them move beyond limits because I believe in them.” The Shanti Hot Yoga-based teacher is a full-time yoga instructor who teaches a variety of classes, all of which add to her student’s lives. “I love a hot, hard vinyasa class, but the sweet surrender at the end is the best part, and sometimes, the class is all about that. I really love that element of rest because it’s not often people will take the time out of their days to give themselves that nourishment.”
