Vonda Neal is a a Certified Baptiste Power Yoga Teacher and the founder of True North Yoga. True North opened its doors in April 2011, being the first yoga studio in Kingman, Arizona. Vonda did her training with world-renowned yoga master, author and presenter, Baron Baptiste. Participating in Level One Teacher Training in Hilo, Hawaii in February 2010 followed up with Level Two in Austin, Texas in September 2010. With the idea of sharing her love of yoga, Vonda started teaching her close friends in her home, which led to venturing into teaching outside of her home and eventually the opening of the studio doors. Keeping community and service in the forefront of True North - the studio holds a community yoga class every Saturday, this is a donation based class with all monies raised going back into the local community. So far the money has gone to local elementary schools, cancer patients undergoing treatment, as well as helping establish a scholarship fund for high school students who have overcome adversity. In September of 2012, Vonda became a Yoga Aid Community Ambassador for Kingman and hosted a local event to raise funds for the Africa Yoga Project. Bringing together a studio owner from a nearby community, the event raised just over $1000. When she is not sharing yoga, she loves to be traveling with her husband, John and spend time with their two boys, Mason and Daniel. Vonda also enjoys desktop publishing and book keeping when she is in her home office.
