About us

Stepping Stone Yoga is here to be part of your Yoga journey as there are many wonderful schools of thought and approaches to be explored in this world. By offering unique styles of Yoga such as Hoop Yoga, Healing Core, and Lunar Yoga, as well as some of the more common styles of Restorative, Yin, Prenatal and All-Levels Asana Vinyasa, we hope that you join us when you are ready with an open heart along your Way.  

As with many Yoga studios during the pandemic of 2020, our studio too was deeply impacted.  Alas, we closed our studio-with-walls that was home to a growing community for four years. However, during the nicer weather months, we now operate in-person on our beautiful outdoor studio-without-walls  and virtually with our online Zoom platform.  

As Yoga merged into the West, a true cultural "yolking" took place. We believe that it is our duty here at Stepping Stone Yoga to encourage all students to take a multifaceted approach during practice; not focus only on the physical body only, but to remember that Yoga can have a profound effect on social, emotional, psychological, and the spiritual bodies of this complex human form.  Yoga is an ancient art and science that heals, renews, and connects us to our understanding of the nature of self.  Yoga comes from India, so it is essential that we view and adapt this practice through the lens of where it has arrived: western culture. This is why we embrace the practice from its roots but also enjoy the practice through its branches.

We honor each student where you are at in each moment.  

When practicing with Stepping Stone, you are highly encouraged to take a beginner mindset even if you have been practicing for many years, as well as, to listen closely to what your needs are in every given moment and learn to respond in a compassionate and productive way. 

We look forward to meeting you along the Way.


I first started at stepping stone as someone who had just discovered yoga. It came by recommendation from a doctor, oddly enough.
You see, at 35, I was already having severe back trouble, nerve pain, caused by the compression of a couple vertebrae in my lower back. The doctor gave me a shot of cortisone, and told me that my life would change, if only I would start doing yoga.
I had to laugh. Yoga was something that I was always interested in, but never allowed myself to take the time, for myself, to start a practice. Now here I was nearly crippled from the nerve pain in my back at 35 years old, being told by a medical professional that Yoga was the answer.
I started a 30 day online challenge the next day. I had already quit smoking, I was already on the path to a healthier self... Why not..?
I was 12 days I to my challenge when I reached out to Pippa for private lessons.
Then the synchronicity happened... My day 12-15 online challenge was the exact same thing, that Pippa had put together for me... It was confirmed. Yoga... I immediately signed up for Pippas'30 day challenge and ran 2 challenges concurrently for a little while. I was on cloud 9.
I have to give these women a huge shout out. They are all amazing in very different ways, each of them, something has ique to offer to your practice, whether you want something light, as a beginner with Nicole and Pippa, or even something heavier with Leigh and The Rocket Ashtanga series, my personal favorite!
If I hadn't moved to pursue my own yoga teacher training in the mountains of NC, I would have stayed with Stepping Stone for a very long time.
I love them.
Bless you all. Warrior Women of Light!
I will miss practice with all of you, and carry you in my heart.​​
