More than savasana

More than savasana

 How a local studio aims to use breath and community to help others understand their purpose.

Nestled between the Old Hickory and Hermitage border, Heart and Light Yoga is a studio rooted in understanding one’s “dharma” (purpose). Founder Dawn Staudt wanted to open a studio where everyone feels welcomed and ready to learn the benefits of trying something new, both on and off their mats.


With an inner calling to serve communities that typically do not practice yoga, Staudt’s vision became clear during a meditation workshop in 2019. 

Heart and Light means to let your heart shine and be your guiding light, using this information to get out of your head and live out your purpose. Staudt gives yoga credit for helping her overcome years of fear and self-doubt; she is ready to share that with the Nashville community.
