Shebah Saturn

Writer, Artist & Educator of Toma Fit

Hailing from East Los Angeles, California, Shebah Saturn is a devoted wellness advocate. She shares and teaches others about  deep, yogic stretching, nutrition and a body positive outlook. Using her creativity and belief in the importance of open-ended form, Shebah has spent several years integrating pilates, the spirit of modern dance, and ashtanga yoga into a sequence of intuitive movements that she shares with others. She has taught her original, yogic series in Los Angeles, New York, Georgia, Italy and the Czech Republic. She continues to study the connection between clarity of the mind and the positive impact it has on the body.

Prior to working for herself, Shebah spent time as a student teacher assisting elementary English Language Learners. After her student teaching she earned her degree in Creative Writing and became a lead teacher, demonstrating writing techniques and structure to high school students in Oakland, California. She later taught Spanish Levels 1 & 2 to middle school students in Brooklyn, New York.

When she arrived in Atlanta, she helped grow several small businesses, some in the private education sector, others in labor management and the import and export industry before taking her last formal position as an Administrative Specialist in Fulton County’s Department of Arts & Culture. After ten years of professional experience in several occupational sectors, Quic finally convinced Shebah to dedicate her time and talent to their very first “family business,” Toma Fit!
