Help us welcome Haley Collins to our Yoga Pod Teacher community! Haley came to us as a student, then a karma yogi, and completed our 200 Hour teacher training this Spring. Her intellect, personality, and positive outlook on life are just a few of the reasons why we love her and we know you will to! Read below to learn more about Haley and her journey. ❤️ Haley began her yoga practice at a very young age to help her body balance the high intensity sports she did. She found that it not only helped her athletics, but it led her down a new path of life. The physical benefits are what made her begin, but the mental aspects are what made her stick with a daily vinyasa practice. Haley fell in love with the mental clarity and calmness that she found on her mat. When Haley moved away for college, she knew she had a calling to become a yoga instructor. After gaining experience at Yoga Pod’s 200 hour teacher training, she is thrilled to share her passion with others. Haley wants to invite each student into the room knowing they are safe and in a space of compassion . Haley brings her love for music in with fun playlists set to the theme of each class. Her goal is to show every yogi the amazing things they can achieve when they push themselves outside of their comfort zone.

What’s better than nature walks after work 2 minutes from your house with your bff, baby dog & fav @akinzboardwear leggings? Not much! Well, if we had mint chocolate chip ice cream too, my life would have been complete.☝🏼 Ps, for real. I’m not a huge fan of most leggings anymore, but these are the comfiest, lightest, softest ones & you should probably get some if you’re into that kinda stuff😉
Thanks for the snaps @joyfuljessie !

I’m so sore from golfing (yes golfing). I mean who would have thought you’d be sore from hitting balls and driving around in a large kids toy all day, even if it has been 14 years since your last 18 holes. 😳
I love my home practice the most when I’m sore. It allows me the space to move intuitively as I look at my body from the inside out. Its like everything is so sensitive that I can move my awareness to the areas needing attention without any thought. The bliss that comes from finding stillness there is unbounded. It’s usually those times that I discover new ways to cue and transition postures when I’m teaching. My own practice makes me a more effective teacher. Get on your mat and just move, your body will thank you. ♥️🌈🏌🏻♀️ #yoga#homepractice#yogacat
Come practice with me @yogapodfortcollins this week! Wednesday 4:30 pm podFLOW 1 and Thursday 5:30 pm podFLOW 2! #yogapodfoco
We all have those days, those moments—you know, the ones where you sit with doubt, confusion, sadness & are left wondering, am I not worthy? Worthy of love, worthy of conceiving a child, worthy of happiness, money, a certain job, healing, using your voice, the list goes on & on. I found this quote for you to read, when you need to hear it: “Be confused, it’s where you begin to learn new things. Be broken, it’s where you begin to heal. Be frustrated, it’s where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough, we can hear our own heart’s wisdom through it. Be whatever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy, always.”💛 S.C. Lourie
Sometimes we like to spend time out of the studio connecting with members of our community as our daily yoga. When we think about all it took for Yoga Pod Foco to go from a dream to a reality the people that helped us along the way are what stand out and we love to stay connected with them. ❤️
It was a beautiful day of strategy, conversations about yoga, and laughs. Thank you @adamsass84 and @jaredereimer for all you do for this community! 👏🏼🙏🏼 🏌🏻♀️ 🧘🏼♀️ #yogapodfoco#yogapodtribe#yogaonthegreen
What's the difference between a teacher and instructor?
Ever been in a class (asana or otherwise) where a memorized script of cues is being rattled off with little to no understanding of how it relates to their students? Have you experienced a class where students aren't empowered to understand the why or the how? Have you ever received the answer "...because that's how I was taught."? ME TOO. It's not wrong, I just think we can do much better.
Teachers are not only helping us evolve but are ever evolving themselves. Their way of sharing information is not singular and does not follow one path...it shifts, it changes, it grows. A TEACHER is not afraid to ask "why?". They allow for student exploration with the understanding that it "takes two to tango" ... in other words, a teacher doesn't exist without a student and every class is an experience built by the two.
If you agree and want to be a part of a growing community of teachers hungry for relationship & authenticity; a community of individuals passionate about how we show up as TEACHERS of this practice...I want to meet YOU. Head over to @merakiyogastudio and apply TODAY!
Please join us in welcoming Cassi Sanford to our Yoga Pod Family! Cassi graduated from our inaugural teacher training this Spring. Her infectious smile, warmth, and nurturing personality will be a great addition to our culture. You will see Cassi both picking up classes and as an Assistant Manager on Friday nights. Read below to hear more about Cassi's yoga journey. @faith.grace.yoga ❤️ #yogapodfamily#yogapodtribe
Cassi began her journey into yoga after the birth of her fourth, and last, child. She was initially seeking an active lifestyle and return to her pre-baby body, but she found spiritual growth and began to see the true benefits of yoga beyond the physical. Although she did find endurance, balance, strength and flexibility, Cassi also found mindfulness and confidence on and off the mat. She fell in love with hot classes early on. The hot classes held similarities to the sweat lodge from her cultural traditions back home on the Nez Perce Reservation in Idaho. Cassi later ventured into Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara and Yin. She discovered the benefits of balancing all forms of yoga with a strong focus on alignment into her practice and how well they complement each other. She is committed to a life long journey of yoga and working to find her best self along her 8 limbed path. She strives to be attentive to each individual in her classes to help guide them to success in their asana as well as their practice on and off the mat. Cassi believes yoga is an internal practice with which you can find your own unique path to a deeper meaning of life. Cassi is motivated to encourage and share that belief with as many others and she can. She completed her 200 RYT with Yoga Pod in April of 2018 and is excited to learn and share her love of yoga with her community.
We love you Cassi! 💜 #yogapodfoco#yogapodtribe
