Meet Stefani Hoyt M.S., RMT, E-RYT500
Thank you for looking at my website. My name is Stefani Hoyt and I am a Registered Massage Therapist (2200hr diploma) with a Masters of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition (focus in Ayurveda). A lifelong student, my undergraduate degree was in Cultural Studies and I have had the privilege of traveling throughout Asia and Europe. Between traveling and the various courses I took in philosophy and religion, I became fascinated by yoga and yoga therapy. In particular, I was drawn to the intricate way that yoga works to release tension from all of the body systems, especially muscular, nervous, respiratory and even energetic. As a result I have studied in Detroit, Seattle, Montreal, Toronto, and Chicago with wonderful teachers who continue to inspire me. Through these teachers I have studied: Thai Yoga Massage, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Holistic Psychotherapy, Chakra Therapy, Ayurveda, Yoga Philosophy and Viniyoga & Anusara approaches to yoga.
Mandorla Therapeutics is my integrated practice where I combine all of my education and experience to serve my clients out of my home studio in Calgary, Alberta. (I also work collaboratively with Prema Sai Wholistic Living on 14th St. in Southwest Calgary.) You can make an appointment for a massage treatment (Thai or Orthopedic), nutrition & lifestyle counseling or yoga therapy or book in for an integrated session where we can tailor your appointment by drawing from all of my background.
For those of you interested in deepening your personal practice, I offer yoga teacher training and small group as well as private yoga classes that incorporate orthopedic exercise principles such as muscle energy testing and PNF and functional movements. These classes draw from my Ayurvedic studies and focus on having a specific energetic effect on the body. You can check out my schedule here . . .
As the director of the Mandorla Yoga Institute, I share my time between Ontario and Calgary running the 200 hour and 500 hour yoga teacher training programs. I do not take on a lot of clients for this reason, but make myself extremely available for those whom I am working with. I look forward to meeting you soon in a session or workshop!
