Arianna Elizabeth

Hi there! I’m Arianna and I have a huge passion for yoga but an even bigger heart for Jesus. It all started in a small, studio smack dab in the middle of Buckhead. Just me, my mat, and Instagram. After a year of practicing on my own, I mustered up the courage to take my first yoga class, which ended up becoming the first step into an entirely new fitness journey I never saw coming! Long story short, God put it on my heart to take my passion for yoga and incorporate His love in it as well.

Through thoughtfully planned vinyasas and a blend of carefully selected music, I enjoy guiding my students, breath-to-movement, through their individual practices. I design sequences that require minimal demonstration while still maintaining a mental and physical challenge. Modifications and/or variations of each asana are always available as each class is delivered in both English and Sanskrit. Ultimately I strive to allow my students to experience liberation through their practices by offering asanas that build functional, intrinsic strength rather than superficial strength that will be used in their day to day lives.
