about me

Stephanie Shindler

My work is supported by over 1500 hours of training from schools in New York and California. But, more important than knowledge of this or that technique or modality, my intention is to meet with the nervous system's slower, restorative rhythms to support the body's own healing resources.

As a young adult, I was limited by a belief that I wasn't a "physically gifted" person and spent most of my working life in front of a computer. Over the years, I practiced martial arts, yoga and other movement arts until an undeniable longing in me was asking "how can I live with more embodiment and purpose?"

I'm grateful to my Kung Fu instructor, dance teachers, Taiko sensei, yoga teachers, and all the healing mentors in my life that have given me the gift of self-exploration and joy.

They've inspired me to keep learning and to connect with my community via volunteer work with Pathways Hospice and the Charlotte Maxwell Complimentary Clinic.
