Neda Draupadi Honarvar, E-RYT 200

Known for her fiery nature and deep desire to make yoga accessible, Neda’s teaching style reflects her passion and playfulness as well as her dedication to the science and discipline of yoga. Her classes are an engaging blend of clear, direct, alignment-based instruction and creative sequencing; expect hard work and play with generous servings of sweat and laughter. Neda is the owner of Tough Love Yoga and the creator of Metal Yoga.  She maintains an active teaching schedule, including private and group classes, workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings. Neda has trained over 80 yoga instructors as the Program Director of Tough Love Yoga Teacher Training, a 200 hour alignment-based hatha yoga program registered with the Yoga Alliance. She's served as an ambassador for lululemon athletica (2012-2015) and as a presenter for Dirty South Yoga FestWanderlust 108 Atlanta, and Wigwam Wellness Festival.

Neda’s love for teaching is second only to her passion for learning, believing that being a student of yoga has and continues to transform the capacity and potential of her mind, body, and heart. She has been studying yoga for over 16 years and is a devoted student of her beloved guru Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati and her teacher and mentor Darren Rhodes.
