So here’s the rundown

Rare Bird Studio is a Yoga & Fitness Studio that is passionate about helping women and men to know their worth and realize that there’s so much more to life than a number on the scale. This journey was started out of a desire to help people live their healthiest lives while having fun and learning to be comfortable in their own skin.

Our goal is for all humans to be strong, healthy, and confident in body and soul, and to unapologetically embrace all aspects of their uniqueness.

For all humans to see and feel and breathe, and find beauty in the RARE.


Meet the local birds who are planking and stretching and leading the flock in all kinds of ridiculousness.

Sandie Gore

Brooke Buffington

She likes her music loud, her coffee black, and her lawn flamingos bright pink. Brooke is a beach bum at heart who’s felt the beauty of Fall in the North Georgia mountains and found home, nestled up in Clarkesville with her bearded hubs, two super cute kiddos and a couple of crazy little animals.

Shelby Day

Yoga Instructor

She loves her family, chocolate, reading, drinking tea, hiking, and 80’s hair bands. Not necessarily in that order. Shelby refers to herself as a “recovering Type-A personality” and loves the way yoga has taught her to calm down and let go. She can’t wait to share that sense of calmness and peace with others.

She is a certified yoga instructor, certified Trauma-Sensitive YogaFaith instructor, and licensed counselor in the state of Georgia. Her absolute “faves” include the smell of barbeque, the magic of Fall, daffodils, and sweet hubby snuggles. Victoria’s love for teaching yoga stems from the joy of creating a safe, sacred, and relaxing space where people of all ages and backgrounds can come to move, breathe, connect, and belong.
