Samantha Herman Ownby
Sam has had a passion for teaching for many years which is evident from her previous experience teaching high school. Samantha graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Minor in Mathematics in 2004 and went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Education. After earning her degree, she shared mathematics with high-schoolers for over three years and continues to tutor.
After a relocation to Atlanta and a quest for a place to call home, Samantha found an entire yoga community through Tough Love Yoga. Shortly after her move, she realized that she had a true passion for yoga and went on to pursue more learning opportunities. She loved not only how it made her feel physically more healthy and aligned, but also seemed to calm her anxious mind. She completed her 200 hour certification in Classical Hatha Yoga at Etowah Valley Yoga under Sue Hopkins and completed Anusara Yoga Immersion with Gina Minyard. Now Sam has begun to blend her love of yoga and her passion for teaching teenagers into developing Tough Love Yoga's Yoga for Teens program.
