Since my early adulthood I have appreciated self-care & mind-body practices as an integral part of maintaining health & happiness.
I have been sharing my love of yoga as a registered instructor since 2001. To me the practice of yoga is the ultimate way to get to know oneself on a deeper level & maintain a balanced lifestyle.
As a natural extension of my work as a yoga instructor, I became a massage therapist in 2007 with the intention of sharing it's effects of deep relaxation, pain management, improved posture, improved energy, improved sleep, mind-body connection & overall feeling of well-being.
With my clients I specialize in attention to the needs of each individual with a focus on the whole being, regarding the mind, body & spirit as a whole. My goal is to work with each client over a period of time to assist them on their path of discovering their best self & balanced lifestyle.
My education & training includes Bachelor of Fine Arts - UNC-Charlotte, Yoga Alliance Teacher Training, Massage Therapy License, NCBTMB Continuing Education Provider, Advanced Thai Yoga Bodywork Certificate, Reflexology Certificate, Clinical Application of Pure Essential Oils Certificate, Dragontree Life Coach Certificate, & several other modalities. I love learning & will continue to serve clients by being a life long learner!
I have been a Massage School Instructor from 2009 to 2015, and currently a NCBTMB Approved Continuing Education Provider for Licensed Massage Therapists. I love teaching, mentoring & helping to inspire others in the fields of massage therapy & other healing arts.
In 2018, I added Goddess Way Life Coaching to my practice. I have completed many hours of training in 3 separate life coaching programs & have been working with clients to help them achieve their goals & dreams. It has been my joy to see clients benefit from the experience of having a supportive coach hold space & be a guide towards greater peace, more love, more light & perfect alignment.
UPDATE 2020! I have now returned to College of Wilmington at Program Director and Lead Instructor, a full time position. I will continue to see clients a couple of weekends per month.
I so appreciate the bountiful support of all my clients over the past 12 years!
I look forward to see you soon!
Take care and be well,
Stephanie Ellis, LMBT, E-RYT, NCBTMB Approved Provider, Massage Therapy Instructor
