Victoria Cochran

Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor

Victoria is a high school student at Rabun Gap Nacoochee School, which she has happily attended since 2013. From the first day of school, she became very involved in performances and training in Rabun Gap's Aerial Arts and Circus Program. She quickly grew interested in the ability to gain body flexibility and build strength. When Clayton Health and Fitness first opened in January 2018, Victoria took yoga and pilates courses during her seasons away from the Cirque Program. She quickly fell in love with yoga and decided to acquire a teaching certification. Victoria teaches stretching and aerial arts to other students at RGNS, and she hopes to continue teaching throughout college. She loves to share the skills she has obtained through years of hard work to her friends, family, and fellow yogis.

Audra has lived in many places around the world and most recently lived in Denver. Her parents have lived in Rabun County for the past 30 years and she is excited to have the opportunity to spend time in this beautiful place. She loves hiking and spending time in nature with her husband and two boys.
