Inspired by the Thunderbolt community’s passion for practice and change, she is most excited by watching students, whether brand new or experienced, let go of their fears and tackle new poses. A big proponent for understanding yoga to its fullest, Lynn continually studies all aspects of yoga - philosophy, anatomy, history, different styles, etc. - and encourages her students to do the same.
An Atlanta native, Lynn received her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and her MBA from Georgia Tech. When not teaching, Lynn leads a digital marketing team for a large software company and in her free time, can often be found with Winston, her 14 year-old rescue dog. Keep up with her on Instagram and Spotify - @lrperry-us - and in the studio teaching on Saturdays and Sundays.
Darby was introduced to yoga while she was studying music at Auburn University. She was intrigued by yoga and the stark contrast that existed between her strict music practice and playful yoga practice. Not long after practicing, Darby discovered that the benefits of practicing yoga reached far beyond the physical asana; she craved the connection between body, mind, and spirit.
Inspired by taking risks and the opportunity to learn, Darby loves teaching because it allows her to help her students to feel good, not only physically but mentally and because she gets to help her students become their most authentic selves.
After graduating with her music degree, Darby moved back to Atlanta to be close to her family in Alpharetta. Keep up with Darby on Instagram and Spotify - Darby Stanton.

Alana joined the Thunderbolt Power Yoga team in 2016, after graduating from the Carly Grace Yoga School. Believing that the atmosphere of a studio really impacts your practice, Alana teaches and practices at Thunderbolt because of the environment its leadership team has cultivated. Encouraging growth, unity and uniqueness, the environment at TPY is what she loves most about the studio.
The glimmer in students’ eyes when they finally land a pose for the first time is her favorite part of teaching; seeing how hard students work and watching them progress in their practice is the most rewarding part.
Alana is an Atlanta native and graduate of Georgia College and State University. When not teaching or in dolphin, her favorite pose, Alana can be found playing with Bear, her Pomeranian, and spending time with her husband Robby.
