What people are saying

"I had a wonderful experience! The space is cozy. The teacher’s voice was great, very comforting and a beautiful tone! My body felt great after the recharge and restore class!"
"I came to yoga hoping to learn how to illuminate areas for personal expansion both on and off the mat. Your studio allows me to do that in a myriad of ways and I discover what I need through the thoughtful teachings of your instructors. I’ve become more self aware in my roles of daughter, wife, mother, friend."
"This place is AMAZING. Recommend to anyone. I am a beginner and it’s really challenging me but I am also very comfortable being a newbie. "

Amanda Burtch Form Yoga Decatur
Amanda Burtch
Studio Manager & Teacher

In 2012 Amanda was led to yoga out of her curiosity while in the midst of some big life changes. She was experiencing a great deal of anxiety from these changes and heard that yoga was good for reducing stress. After a year of wobbling around in her living room to beginners DVDs and VHS tapes (remember those?), she landed a job for a wellness-based company that led her down a path to learn more about yoga and to connect with teachers and practitioners...

Shonali Banerjee Form yoga Decatur

After moving to Paris, France in 2004, Shonali did further study in India & Europe focusing on therapeutics & women's health with TKV Desikachar and taught yoga full time.

Dekeely Atkins Form yoga Decatur
DeKeely Atkins

DeKeely’s yoga practice began when her sister-in-law invited her to come along to a hot yoga class to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Once she stepped foot on her mat, she was hooked! With degrees in health and exercise science and public health, she was always engaged in fitness. But DeKeely knew yoga was different.

Marck Maroun Form yoga Decatur
Marck Maroun

Marck has always been a yogi and a geologist at heart. He uses his connection to the Earth to ground down before every practice. Adopting yoga as a way of life, not just the physical practice, is key to his happiness.

Twelve years ago, Marck began his yogic path. His initial gravitation towards yoga was strictly physical wellness. Shortly after, he discovered the bond between mind-body and breath.

Alisa Lewis Form yoga Decatur
Alisa Lewis

When Alisa found yoga, she discovered a spark that quickly lit her up. At the age of forty-two she was astonished that at yoga class, people her own age were busting out backbends and headstands like it was no big deal.

They were moving and flowing with the simple beauty of dancers. But they did not seem to be there just for the cool poses.

Misty McClain Form yoga Decatur
Misty McClain

Misty found yoga shortly after recovering from an Anterior Cervical Spinal Fusion. After suffering from chronic pain for more than 3 years that left her feeling weak both mentally and physically, she came to yoga for the physical benefits hoping to relieve pain and gain back strength. As her body became healthier and stronger, she soon discovered that her yoga mat was where she found a mind body connection and self-awareness. Inspired to take her practice further...

Kate Smith Form yoga Decatur
Kate Smith

Kate’s classes are thoughtful, balanced, playful, and nurturing. She grew up in Macon, GA, home to Otis Redding, James Brown, Little Richard, and the Allman Brothers Band, and her mom (a genealogy wiz) says she’s distantly related to Johnny Cash. How cool is that? With ‘The Man In Black’ literally in her blood, music plays an important role in the tone of Kate’s classes.

Katie May Form yoga Decatur
Katie May

Although she had taken yoga classes in the past, Katie did not truly discover her passion for yoga until 2014 when her husband suffered a spinal cord injury and they started taking classes together as a part of his recovery. She quickly fell in love with the physical benefits of strength and flexibility that came with the practice.

Madison Best Form yoga Atlanta
Madison Best

Madison Best is an E-RYT 500 who first started yoga after graduating college when she was feeling a bit lost. After that first class, she knew she would continue with it for the rest of her life. For Madison, yoga was more than just physical exercise. It was a means of empowerment through outward expression and inner awareness. It helped her reconnect to herself through honesty, self-reflection, sometimes struggle, but above all, love.

Rebecca Moulton Form yoga Atlanta
Rebecca Moulton

Rebecca wandered into her first yoga class in Midtown. What she didn’t know, the studio was just downwind from Krispy Kreme. Coincidentally, the red light came on every morning during savasana, and the room filled with the warm aroma of freshly glazed donuts. She knew it was meant to be.

Fast forward, and her practice led her to the FORM family. Since then, it has changed, ebbed and flowed, on and off the mat, many times over through all her seasons of life. 

Jenn Cook Form yoga Atlanta
Jenn Cook

Jenn started teaching yoga in 2012 after taking her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training under Neda Draupadi Honarvar at Tough Love Yoga. She soon added a certification in Thai Yoga Bodywork & Stretching, a 300 hour YTT with Gina Minyard, Reiki, and prenatal yoga training with Amani Murray & Oh Baby! Fitness. A perpetual student, Jenn is also a certified Breath Coach. Her numerous trainings in the Tarot, the chakra system, as well as exposure to Ayurveda and Craniosacral Therapy gives dynamic inspiration for her offerings and classes. Jenn has a zest for life that drives her to keep learning and growing.

Desiree Nathanson Form yoga Atlanta
Desirée Nathanson

Desirée comes to the world of yoga by way of dance. She began her formal dance training at the age of four at Florida Ballet Arts in Sarasota and continued through her discovery of dance teams in high school. From there, she went on to dance for the University of Florida Gators Dazzlers dance team where she performed all over the country, including the 2000 Men's Basketball Final Four. (She may or may not still be bitter about losing to Michigan State.) Following her four years at UF, Desirée broke into the professional world of dance as an 'A-Town' dancer for the NBA's Atlanta Hawks. Desirée currently serves as an official trainer for the ATL Hawks Dancers.

Amy Anderson Form yoga teacher
Amy Anderson

Amy first discovered the physical benefits of yoga in 2004. But it was in 2010, when she found herself closing a difficult chapter of her life, that she discovered yoga for emotional healing. That was when she knew yoga would be a part of her life forever.

Amy dedicated herself to take a year to go inward, dig deep, and find restoration. She was determined to attract the love and life she knew existed for her. Step one was learning to love herself. She committed to take herself on a weekly date night every Friday. It always started with a Hatha yoga class at a local yoga studio in Carrboro NC, led by instructor/owner Ti Harmony.
