Sarah Dunn

Co-Owner and Yoga Teacher

Sarah began practicing yoga in 2012 as part of a  weight loss journey. She was delighted to discover that yoga empowered her to enjoy physical activity and that it was possible for a plus size body to be strong and athletic. As she got deeper into her practice, she discovered the mental benefits of yoga and meditation and made them a permanent fixture in her life.

Sarah now focuses on core strength and all over body training. She has a first hand understanding of physical limitations caused by arthritis, balance disorders, and working around the loose skin issues that arise from massive weight loss.

La-Shonda Spencer

Yoga Teacher

La-Shonda found her way to the mat after her trainer suggested she try yoga due to tight hamstrings. She went to Birmingham Yoga in 2014 and was introduced to Ashtanga yoga. She fell in love with it through modifications until she was able to do the full posture. She became consistent with it and attended Mysore classes to deepen her practice. In July 2019, she completed her 200 hour-training with Vulcan Yoga Teacher Training. She has a certification in Prenatal Yoga.

La-Shonda focuses on Ashtanga, Vin-Yin, and is learning Restorative.  She wants her students to know that yoga isn’t about being perfect but progressing to your body’s potential.  Always remember yoga is an ongoing journey, it doesn’t end. You learn more about yourself and body with each practice.
