We believe in all things natural, we believe in wellness, We also believe that everyone deserves to have experiences that will aid them on their journey through this life.  We understand through our own hardships that life can be tough at times, but we realize that there are beautiful tools to help each and every one of us find our way to a more balanced, calm state of being, a place where we can ground and work from in a positive way, in all aspects of life. 


Here at The Lotus Cafe, Yoga Studio & Shop, we have put our hearts and minds into consciously encompassing many different offerings with you in mind.  We have built our space with a mission, a calling, to offer a safe, comfortable and relaxing environment for you to come and enjoy, decompress and just be.  From our natural focused, "clean eating"  we offer, our studio's classes and workshops, our massage and holistic spread to our conscious, earthy and cultural shopping experience we love what we do, we love our space and we love seeing all of you choosing wellness and awareness with us because simply...this is what the world (Everyone of us) needs.

About the Owner


Born in Michigan, Stephanie was brought into her life by her late parents Stephan and Evaleen.  She was blessed to be raised in a household where her personal exploration was of the essence and she was always drawn to the artistic realm of life.  She was raised in a household of two siblings, Todd and Cyndi.  At the age of 13 her father crossed over and this experience redirected her desire to understand life from a more spiritual perspective; opening her eyes to the world around her as a whole, no division.  Her mother, Evaleen, would go on, before her crossing over, to instill a level of awareness of conscious eating, living and "alternative" healing that she has carried with her throughout her life. 


Stephanie felt, at a young age, the urge to explore further than her birth state and she , after adventuring around the states for holiday, made the desicion to travel to South Africa at the age of 22. This experience would forever ingrain in her the primal understanding of life and joy through simple lifestyles and traditions.  After returning to the states, she set her eyes on leaving Michigan for good and over a ten year period, eventually moved her way through the states of Nevada, California, Hawaii, & Texas, to end up in Ogden, UT.  While residing in these states she set her explorations into small parts of Mexico and

to Bali where she trained for her 200 hour RYT and to explore yet more incredible

cultures of simplicity and purity.    


After arriving in Ogden, she was sure this was the place to bring her dreams to life.  Here she resides with her vision, passion and ever growing space on 25th Street.  Cultivating a space of consciousness, wellness, growth and culture; Stephanie welcomes you to share in this experience.  As her business and offerings grow she has been able to travel to Costa Rica obtaining her 300 hour Advanced RYT and also now offers an annual retreat with her dear friend and fellow Yogi Kristi Murrin in Ecuador.  Yearly she strives to offer Free community Yoga and is finding more opportunities to be involved in community on and offsite.
