Darnell and Genevieve Harris

Darnell & Genevieve Harris founded the “studios” in 2017 after commuting to the city of Atlanta and more populated counties surrounding the perimeter. Genevieve obtained her credentials in Yoga as an E-RYT 200 teacher bestowed by the Yoga Alliance between the years of 2016-2018. Her practice began in BUTI Yoga and she now teaches Vinyasa, HOT Yoga and the Barre program with her certification as an ACE trainer by the American Council on Exercise. Her business is a family affair as her husband, also formally trained in the practice and her three sons assist in the operation of their local studio. The Harrises live in the Westside of Georgia and take great pride in serving their community.

Their non-profit called “Special Needs Strong” allows local special needs parents caretakers, therapists, doctors, aides and school professionals practice yoga for free .

    BUTI Yoga RYT 200 Evolutionary Education YPTT 200 “Yoga provides a way for us all as humans to move through our lives with more grace, compassion and wholeness.”


    Greenville RYT 200 “I do yoga because it helps me release unwanted emotions so that I can come home and be a better wife to my husband, a better mother to my children, and a better friend. Yoga helps me connect with my true self. It makes me happy. I’ve never left a class thinking; man, I wish I had not come.”


    Gurmukh Mike Noury, Yoga of India (Sandy Springs, Georgia) E-RYT 200 YACEP

    "Yoga is a practice, not a perfect. If practiced consistently, it becomes a way of life. It is an invitation to deeply explore our minds and hearts; to observe, nurture and heal ourselves.
