IT’S TIME TO STOP STRUGGLING.

I know you’ve got a lot on your plate (you’re a modern woman) and it feels like you’re always in survival mode. And running on empty.

You’re tense and frustrated more than you want to be. You can’t focus or relax because your mind is all over the place.

HOW MUCH LONGER CAN YOU LIVE LIKE THIS?

I’m sure to the outside world it looks like you’ve got it together, (you’re amazing that way) but inside, you’re slowly falling apart.

You’re worried and exhausted a lot. And you’ve been thinking things will get better for a long time, but it’s just not happening.

WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE TO MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY?

Taking care of yourself probably feels like just another thing you should be doing and can’t seem to figure out, right? I completely understand. 

And I want you to know that once you’re ready, reclaiming your life from stress is simple. Here’s how I know.

I used to feel worried, frustrated, exhausted, and on the verge of losing it every single day.

I tried so many times to get myself together and change my life, but it never lasted and my sense of dread got worse and worse.

My stress and self-loathing caused a body-focused repetitive behavior: I pulled on my eyebrows and eyelashes.

And eventually pulled them all out.

This is what it took for me to pay attention and reclaim my life from stress.

When I caught myself pulling on eyebrows or eyelashes that weren’t even there, I’d bend over and take a few deep breaths.

And say to myself: You don’t have to do this.

This simple practice interrupted my pattern of stressing and my eyebrows and eyelashes (very, very slowly!) began to grow back.

I continued to do my forward bend and breathe when feeling stressed. I’d calm myself down and acknowledge, You’re ok, you’re ok, everything is ok.

I was gaining the benefits of yoga and changing my life with one simple practice.

I stopped struggling and started growing in ways I never thought possible.

And I want that for you too.

Going through Make Peace with Stress was profound for me. It was just what I needed.

IF WE HAVEN’T OFFICIALLY MET, I’M STEPHANNIE.

I’m a Certified Yoga Therapist who created this program after reclaiming my own life from stress and a decade of teaching yoga therapy for stress in yoga studios, hospitals (Johns Hopkins, Mercy Medical Center, Mt Washington Pediatric, and Bon Secours), businesses (Catholic Charities, FastForward), and to many clients 1:1 in my private studio.

These years of experience revealed that a few simple insights and practices get transformative results for most of us.

Since 2014, I’ve been honored to guide and support women through Make Peace with Stress. During this time, one thing has been confirmed over and over: therapeutic yoga is the most holistic and effective way to stop struggling with stress and continually improve your life.

If you’re stressed and struggling more than you want to, if you’re ready to reclaim your life once and for all so that you can be the present + confident woman you’re meant to be, I’d be honored to have you in the Make Peace with Stress Community.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much time do I need each week to do the program?

I’ve worked really hard to make this program concise and simple!

The science of habit-building is built into the program so you’ll start small and gradually increase the time you’re spending each week. The time commitment in week one is about 5 minutes each day. Week two, around 7 minutes. Week three, 10ish. You get the idea. It averages out to about 20-minutes and will be the MOST VALUABLE time you spend because it will shift the rest of your day, week, and life for the better. Our Connected Coaching calls are about an hour, but they’re optional and if you can’t make it live, you can submit questions beforehand and a recording will be available afterward.

Also, you have lifetime access to all of the online materials, including all updates and upgrades, as well as access to my best rate for additional Connected Coaching Calls if you want 1:1 support from me at any time.

I've never taken an online program before, how does it work?
I’ve made the entire process EASY!

All of the program materials are hosted on a private membership site which you’ll get immediate access to upon registration. You’ll create a login and go to the Welcome page where a START HERE video introduced you to the Make Peace with Stress method and gives you a tour of the program site. There’s also a short checklist of preparation items so you can set yourself up for success.

Each Sunday, you’ll receive an email with step-by-step instructions for that week’s module and Connected Coaching call, so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of what you’re supposed to be doing. I’ve got your back. :  )

How do you teach yoga online?
Like many online courses, this program teaches yoga philosophy and practices through video, audio, and print materials.

Each Module includes a video lesson and the pages of the GrowthWork workbook are delivered as PDF files throughout the program. The practices, which include very simple movements as well as meditations are taught by me through audio files (where I lead you through the practice instructions) as well as a printable practice guide that features illustrations and step-by-step details.

What if something happens and I can't complete the program?
Life happens, but you’ll always be able to come back to this work. You have lifetime access to all of the materials, including all updates and upgrades, and once you’ve joined, you can participate in the group program twice per year. (You’ll get something new out of it every time because it’s yoga and therefore of endless depth!) Every time you participate in this intentional period of self-care, stress relief, and revisiting this method, you’ll renew your commitment to yourself, deepen your simple, therapeutic practice, and continue building resilience. Also, as a program participant, you get access to my best rate for additional Connected Coaching Calls if you want 1:1 support from me at any time.

IMPORTANT NOTE: FALL 2018 IS LAST TIME FREE, LIFETIME PARTICIPATION WILL BE OFFERED AS PART OF THE ORIGINAL COST OF THE PROGRAM. NEW MEMBERS WILL STILL HAVE LIFETIME ACCESS TO THE ONLINE MATERIALS, BUT STARTING IN 2019, THERE WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL FEE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LIVE, SUPPORTED VERSION MORE THAN ONCE.

Is there another way to do Make Peace with Stress?
YES! I offer Make Peace with Stress as a 1:1 coaching package each Spring. 

When you go through Make Peace with Stress as an individual, you still get lifetime access to all of the same Modules, the GrowthWork workbook, the audio guides, and the Practice Library. You still get time on the phone with me each week. You still get the incredible results of this life-changing program.

The difference is it’s just you and I so you benefit from my direct attention, and there’s a bit more flexibility in the schedule. But you do miss out on the power of the group and it’s about 60% more expensive.
