I, Karyn Stein, PhD, am the founder of Earth Strong Yoga and have been passionate about yoga since  adolescence. I remember both of my parents doing yoga when I was young. My interest and desire to dig deeper into this ancient Indian tradition resulted in my recent completion of an MA in Yoga Studies from Loyola Marymount University in LA. A few years ago I completed my Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training with Bliss Baby Yoga Australia. I am an advocate for women-centered and empowered natural birthing practices. I had a midwifery led home birth for both of my daughters in New Zealand.  I completed a 1.5 year teacher training with Yoga Aotearoa - the International Yoga Teacher's Association of New Zealand and am the secretary as well as a teacher in their 200 hr Teacher Training. I am an Adjunct Yoga Instructor for the University of South Carolina. I will also be finishing my last module for Yoga Therapy Training Certification with Svastha Yoga next year. Besides yoga, I am passionate about promoting self-sufficiency, sustainability and simple living through going back to the land and organic food growing practices. I hold a PhD in Geography with a focus on Sustainability.
