About the instructor: DuShaun Branch Pollard has been practicing yoga for almost 13 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.DuShaun previously worked in higher education, is a trained restorative justice circle keeper and is currently a community organizer in North Lawndale, a community on the west side of Chicago. DuShaun also works in Higher Education, is a trained restorative justice facilitator and a west side resident!
