Stella Dolan’s yoga journey started back in 2008; in a small carpeted studio- AYF’s first home in Severna Park. It took a few years of practicing on and off before she developed a consistent practice; this led Stella to Spring 2012 Teacher Training in LA. After Teacher Training, Stella briefly taught in Salt Lake City before moving to Philadelphia. Stella taught for Hot Yoga Philadelphia for five years, it was there she cultivated her teaching skills and love for health and nutrition; this led Stella to nursing school, a compliment to her undergrad background in psychology. Now Stella is an emergency room nurse in Baltimore and teaches at AYF part time. She loves blending her knowledge to teach classes that encourage self awareness, mindful and intentional movements as well as giving special attention to the small details. Stella’s love for her yoga practice has expanded over the years to sharing yoga with her two young sons and working on ‘off the mat’ yoga in her daily life.
