About Us

Sutherland Yoga Studio was founded in January 2012 in the heart of Valdosta, Georgia. The first of its kind in the small southern town, Sutherland Yoga Studio has proudly combined a passion for yoga with the desire to maintain a healthy active lifestyle. With years of personal practice and the respected credentials for instruction, Michelle Sutherland took her vision to the sky when embarking on establishing a space for her daily practice to call home.

Each of our instructors brings as much enthusiasm to their classes as they do to their own practices. Our instructors aim to provide classes that fit each and every skill level as they guide their students through the yoga postures. Come join us on the mat and challenge yourself. It's yoga practice. Not yoga perfect.
