Stephanie Lopez, L.I.S.W.-S.
Certified iRest Yoga Nidra Teacher
Stephanie holds a masters degree in clinical social work and is a Gestalt therapist who interweaves iRest yoga nidra and self-inquiry into her clinical practice. Her areas of specialization include anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, relational and character issues, end of life, and grief work. She is also a 200-hour certified yoga teacher.
Stephanie’s teaching style creates a deep sense of safety and support, welcoming all of who you are, and engenders a meeting space based on truth and authenticity. She serves as a Supervisor for certification students as well as teaches group iRest classes, workshops, and private dyads. She has taught principles of iRest Yoga Nidra and non-dualism at 200-hour level yoga teacher trainings since 2007. She has also assisted and taught at iRest Teacher Trainings. Her intention is to join students where they are and welcome self-inquiry to resolve suffering and reveal the utter wholeness of one’s Being.
Stephanie has been devoted to Living Truth, in which the nondual teachings are a pointer, since first meeting and studying with Richard Miller in 2002. She continues to be astonished and inspired by the unfolding of Truth that comes with welcoming life and all aspects of the self, just as they are. She has served as a member of the Council of Stewards with the Center of Timeless Being, which has since developed into IRI. She considers it a great privilege to support IRI, its students, and community to bring these teachings out into the world.
Stephanie regularly finds joy in her marriage with her husband, Francisco, and with her two cats, along with running and hiking. She also has a long love affair with chocolate.
