Stephanie howe violett

Pro trail + ultra runner
Western States 100 Champion 2014
Oregon, USA


Stephanie dominates the trails. But she's also had her share of setbacks, including a year off after huge performances at Western States 100 (Champion 2014, 3rd 2015). 

She also holds a PhD in Nutrition & Exercise Science. She is full of hard earned competitive running lessons and is literally an expert in so many facets of the sports world. 

She is a leader in trail and ultra running — as a competitor, peer, and advocate for the sport and wilderness she loves to play in. Her philosophy on recovery and mindfulness is enlightening, and we can't wait to see where she goes next!


"I ask a lot out of my body. I push my body to its physical and mental limits on a regular basis. Jasyoga is my way of giving back to my body. I use yoga to reset and support my body. The ying and the yang. Train hard and recover harder."

"I spend many hours on the trail with my own thoughts. I train my body as well ad my mind to perform. I use Jasyoga to maintain the connection between my mind and body. When I'm running 100 miles in the mountains by myself, the ability to stay connected is crucial. My yoga practice helps me to stay present and keep my head and heart in align."

"I love to push my body to it's limits, but I also love to rest, recharge, and take care of my body. Incorporating Jasyoga into my daily routine is an important part of my training. Recovery and self care is so important for being able to push my body day after day."
