Marcia ‘Madhavi’ Scredon
Marcia Scredon taught her first class in 1976 while still in college. She has been offering classes in Gwinnett County for over twenty five years and teacher training for the past six. Her eclectic teaching style is heart-centered and adaptive, reflecting years of training and continual re-training. Confident and intuitive, she mixes the innovative and original with the timeless traditions of yoga. She specializes in offers classes that heal the spirit while relieving stress.
Marcia was certified as a yoga teacher by Yogi Hari before Yoga Alliance was formed and she registered with Yoga Alliance after her 200 hour teacher training in Integrative Yoga Therapy with Joseph LaPage in 2000. Since then she has accumulated extensive hours of Vinyasa Yoga teacher training and studied Kundalini Yoga with Ravi Singh and Durga Alhund. She has been profoundly inspired by all of her teachers including master teachers Shiva Rea, Tom Gillette, Amy Weintraub, Sarah Powers, Seane Corn, Rod Stryker, Todd Norian and Jonas Westring.
Before opening this studio seventeen years ago she taught yoga at several area locations including schools, hospitals, wellness centers, a YMCA, a fitness center, and the old Metamorphosis yoga studio in Decatur. She co-founded The Light Center, a yoga studio that operated in Lilburn from 1993 through 1996. Her somewhat related career path outside of teaching yoga includes experience as a social service professional (managing the Gwinnett women’s shelter) and as an aerobics instructor.
She has taught psychic develop and tarot. She is a Reiki master who also offers sessions and attunements at the studio.
Joe (Sean) Hanrahan has been a student of Kripalu Yoga for over a decade, but in 2017 found his true calling when he received his 200hr RYT certification from The Yoga Source. He has always led an active lifestyle, an accomplished tennis player and avid golfer, you probably won’t find him sitting at home on the weekends. He has served his family and community in many ways over the years, as a Cub and Boy Scout Leader, an OM Coach and as a Board Member of the local Swim Tennis Association that he belongs to. He believes in the unification of breathe and movement in his practices and brings a unique approach to the classes that he teaches.
I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and this beautiful journey has bestowed upon me tremendous bliss and peace. Like so many others, I came to yoga with the thought it would be an addition to my fitness routine, and, it certainly became as such. However, along my yoga road, I began to experience the true essence of yoga. My body and breath began to relax, my mind became calmer and focused and I began to discover a new inner self. In the hectic environment we belong to, the calming effect of yoga assists to bring us back to the present moment and reminds to take care of oneself.
My desire to study yoga more deeply led me to embark on a teacher training program in Hatha Yoga with Madhavi Marcia Scredon of The Yoga Source and later with Mukta Kaur Khalsa for my teacher training certification in Kundalini Yoga. I am a 200-Hour Registered Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher in Hatha and Kundalini Yoga. I have been blessed to have studied with other teachers in various traditions of yoga, including Rolf Gates, Tommy Rosen, Nikki Myers, Amy Weintraub, Snatam Kaur, Ann Ritter “Hari Kaur”, and Sat Dharam Kaur which has brought me to further my knowledge and practice of Restorative, Kundalini, Vinyassa and Mantra Yoga. In addition, I hold certificates to teach yoga specific for depression, PTSD, addictions and personal experience with yoga for cancer.
I hear so many people say they cannot do yoga because they are “not flexible enough” and my reply is “Everyone can do yoga!” My classes include therapeutic techniques that will begin to strengthen and release tension in the various muscles along with various breath meditations to enable the whole body to release the stored stress.
Come flow with me and share the beautiful practice of yoga!

As a Registered Yoga Teacher, through the Yoga Alliance, Leslie is ready to share her passion of yoga. She favors Hatha and Restorative Yoga, as she enjoys helping others find stress relief, both physical and mental, through the tradition of a yoga practice. Leslie is also trained and certified in Senior Yoga, through the Rewind Senior Yoga methodology. Working with the senior yogi is a wonderful gift. She feels honored to teach seniors ways to build upper and lower body strength in order to improve and maintain their ability to perform activities of daily living.
Leslie takes pleasure in sharing the spiritual and mindful energy found in a thoughtful yoga session. Yoga, the coming together, the union of the body, mind, and spirit, is what she would like to help others achieve and assist in making yoga a wonderful daily ritual.
Leslie has a degree in Psychology from UC Riverside, Senior Peer Counseling Training from the Agewise Program, and is a Gwinnett Neighborhood Leadership Institute graduate.
As a recent graduate of the 2017 YTT class, I am delighted to be sharing my practices at The Yoga Source. While my exploration of yoga began in my college years, it was a trip to India in the summer of 2015 that was the catalyst for becoming a yoga instructor. My daughter, Abbey and I spent 10 days at a yoga retreat in Kerala. It was one of the most culturally rich and complex experiences I have ever participated in and to share it with Abbey made it extraordinarily special. Each time I come to my mat, I am grateful for the chance to share this lovely practice with others.
Laurie Burns was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1954. At 17 years old, she began her yoga practice at the local YMCA. During college, she went on World Campus Afloat semester at sea. She traveled all over the world studying art and teaching yoga on board the ship.

In 1988, Laurie and her family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia where she began teaching art for the Gwinnett County Public Schools at Centerville Elementary. Laurie taught at Centerville Elementary from 1988-2014 when she recently retired.
Laurie’s life long yoga practice brought her to the Yoga Source in 2007. After completing The Yoga Source 200 Hour Teacher Training in 2017, Laurie now finds herself guiding other yogis through their practice!
“Yoga has helped me through the hardest times in my life and has helped make all the good times even better! Namaste, ya’ll!” –Laurie Burns
I have been practicing yoga throughout my life, being brought up primarily in the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. In becoming a mother, I began a more regular, dedicated practice of yoga, finding it strengthening for my body, calming for my mind and healing for my spirit. Today, yoga philosophy is engrained in almost every aspect of my life.
I have worked in the alternative health field for almost 15 years as a colon hydrotherapist, Community Herbalist, Reiki practitioner and certified nutritional coach. I received my 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification from the Yoga Source and am currently working towards my 500-RYT certification at the Asheville Yoga Center.
Being a life-long student, I am always finding new ways to strengthen my own practice along with my students’. My intention is to create a safe and nurturing yoga class where each student feels empowered in the body they bring to the mat that day. My focus is to guide my students into a holistic self-awareness through conscious alignment and mindful breath, uniting the body, mind and spirit.
