Stephanie Gaines-Bryant discovered yoga after years of suffering from back pain. After her last round of physical therapy, she decided to look for a more holistic approach to her chronic back issues. She began taking yoga classes at Crofton Yoga. Within a few months, the pain had almost completely disappeared. Two years later Stephanie completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification from the Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts. She later received her 300 hour advance certification from the Pranakriya School of Healing Arts.
When Stephanie is not teaching yoga, she is a radio news anchor for WTOP Radio in Washington, D.C. Stephanie is married to Telecommunications Executive, Richard Bryant. The couple has four children; Richard Jr., Christian, Kendall, and Gabriel.
Stephanie has a B.A. in Mass Media Arts from Hampton University and an MLA in Liberal Arts from Johns Hopkins University. Stephanie is also an avid jogger who has run over two dozen half marathons.
