Stefanie Lemieux has been passionate about teaching since she was in her teens. A childhood abundant in dance blossomed into her love of yoga, a passion she has been practicing for over 20 years ago.
'Movement fascinates me, and seeing what the human body can do, from breath, to healing to bending backwards, is just amazing'It is no secret that Stef is married to her practice. Both as student and teacher she is always seeking new ways to grow by exploring various styles of yoga; always looking to broaden her knowledge of the practice. While on this journey, Stef fell in love with stand up paddle (SUP) and the following year, combined her love of both ocean and yoga with SUP Yoga right here in Barbados. Everyone now calls her The Mermaid, and she is alright with that! "Yoga is about union... I believe it is accessible to everyone! Come unroll your mat and have a laugh; savasana is the best part!!”
What happens when women from different places in the world meet in Barbados and start kitesurfing? Naturally, we start a blog. Hi, we’re the KiteSirens. We kite, we blog, we live our dream, and we want to share it all with you.
The idea for our blog was born when it became very apparent that there are far more men kitesurfing than women. While that’s not a bad thing (especially for the single ladies!), we are so passionate about the sport that we want to strengthen the voice for female kitesurfers. We also want to use this platform to inspire and motivate other women who are learning to kitesurf or are curious about the sport. Anyone is capable of kiting; it just takes grit, determination, and commitment, then you’ll be flying high. If anything, you can enjoy pictures of our beautiful Caribbean island, Barbados, that is known for consistent trade winds and exceptional beach living.
