A proud Bay Area native, Steph P. found SoulCycle when she was living in New York City attending grad school at NYU. Needless to say, she was hooked after the first class! When Steph heard that SoulCycle was opening a studio in Marin County, only then did she decide to return home after living in the Big Apple for four years. Her love of the Bay Area SoulCycle community inspired her to make the leap from rider to instructor, and she couldn't be more happy with the decision! Steph brings her passion for fitness, music & community to each class and encourages her riders to challenge themselves but never forget to have fun while doing so! When she isn’t on a bike, Steph loves hiking, reading, traveling and spending time with her husband and fur-child, Banana, their rambunctious and adorable French bulldog.
