DuShaun Branch Pollard has been practicing yoga for almost 15 years and fell in love with yoga because it allowed her to find peace of mind while moving her body.

As a yoga student, DuShaun noticed that in the majority of her classes she was the only black and plus-sized person in the room. This inspired her to become a practitioner to bring yoga to more people who looked like her. “DuShaun is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) through the Yoga Alliance and was certified through Bloom Yoga Studio in June of 2020.

In addition, she received her 95-hour Children’s Yoga Certification from Mission Propelle in the summer of 2018 and was trained for Prenatal and Postnatal yoga with the Amala School of Yoga. DuShaun is passionate about creating space for rest, for calm, and helping people find tools that work for them to relieve and reduce stress.

DuShaun also is an Adjunct Professor at North Central College in Naperville, Il is a trained restorative justice circle keeper and has been a community organizer in North Lawndale.
