Our Founder

Ronda Thornton is the Founder and CEO of True North Total Wellness. She is a RYT 500  with specialized teaching certifications in aerial, yin, and yogahour® alignment based yoga. Her yoga teaching philosophy centers accessibility and inclusivity and her classes prioritize creating a sense of autonomy, liberation, and peace within the mind and body. She is also a reiki practitioner and herbalist.

Forever a student of the practice, Ronda initially discovered yoga as a way to stay active while balancing the demands of her life and legal career. As her yoga and meditation practices deepened, she also experienced significant emotional and spiritual growth and development, which she describes as an awakening. From the shift, a renewed sense of passion, purpose, and service emerged in her personal path.

Ronda's work is grounded in the belief that we are all seeking to thrive and live as our most vibrant, authentic self. While there may be some intersections, we are all meant to follow our own path. When we connect and align to our unique centering point or True North, we also find our purpose and how we are meant to contribute to the greater good.

Her vision is that TNTW serves as an inclusive, liberating, and empowering resource for community with thoughtfully created products, safe spaces, and sacred experiences.  

Ronda is a longtime Atlanta resident, attorney, and entrepreneur. A graduate of Spelman College and The University of Georgia School of Law, she is an avid traveler, cook, and overall lover of life.
