I am a certified yoga teacher for both children and adults, with extensive training and accreditation from Yoga Alliance. I have guided numerous students through their yoga journeys. My teaching philosophy is based on compassion, upliftment, and the fundamental belief that yoga is accessible for all.
Brwnskn Yoga is more than just a practice—it's a MOVEMENT of self-love, empowerment, and healing. Founded by Shawandra Ford, our mission is to create inclusive spaces where individuals of all shades and backgrounds can experience the transformative power of yoga.

Through her classes, workshops, and community events, Shawandra fosters a sense of belonging and acceptance, encouraging practitioners to embrace their bodies and celebrate their cultural heritage.
Beyond the mat, Shawandra is a dedicated advocate for social justice and mental health awareness.
