Tina Strawn sets her intention to be a courageous, unapologetic truth seeker and truth teller everyday, but often she falls short and she's ok with that (seeing as how she's not fully enlightened yet). One minute she can be found encouraging her students to squat lower in her Barre classes or breathe deeper in her yoga classes. The next moment she may be marching with local civil rights groups against social and racial injustice.
Tina first found her voice by teaching a variety of Group Fitness classes over 14 years ago, as a way to deal with her mothers death from non Hodgkin's lymphoma, and a way to find sanity in the midst of being an overwhelmed, body insecure working mother of 3 kids. Today, she is the GM of Anytime Fitness Alpharetta/Milton and she interacts online with the fitness community through her brand, Group Fitness Life. At the intersection of her activism and her teaching, Tina created Satya Yoga Trips, where she leads 3 day anti-racism yoga trips in Montgomery, Alabama, visiting the lynching memorial and the Legacy Museum, using the philosophy and the practice of yoga as tools to dismantle racism.
Tina and her wife live in Alpharetta with their fur baby, Jax, where they are empty nesters who enjoy creating exactly what they want. She is an expert at practicing self care and saying no, and she considers herself a follower of joy, a chooser of love and a jumper.
