ACE Professional Profile



Stephanie Pafford

LA Jolla, CA US 92037-1815

About Stephanie Pafford: As a practitioner of yoga my life has been transformed. I truly believe that you can’t practice yoga without having a change regardless in what shape or form it is transforming, can be magical, and a blessing for some. The first time I stepped on a mat I felt like I was home and something stirred inside of me and the journey began. I have experienced a love for myself that was non-existent before yoga and acceptance of all things regardless if perceived as good or bad I am present and whole. I come from a background where athletics have always been in my life so I started my journey as a Personal Trainer and trained extensively with back issues, as this was a particular issue for me before yoga, active older adults, core and stability issues and worked with teens. I had this false belief that yoga was “easy” so not for me, boy was I wrong. Through “asana” (postures) I was moved to become an instructor and received my 200 Hour teacher training certification and 100 Hour restorative training. I have explored the deeper aspects of yoga with meditation, such a challenge for me, and pranayama. I have done workshops with many, including but not limited to, Roger Cole, Desiree Raumbaugh, and Saul David Ray. I am an E-RYT 200/500 with Yoga Alliance, an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Egoscue Pain, Posture & Performance trained, Completion of Nutrition for Professional. I am the director of Akasha Yoga Studio in La Jolla, California. I welcome all into class and trainings and encourage you to go above and beyond any expectations and limitations.
