For most of her life, Savanah has had a strong love for movement and yoga. As a young child, she began her love of movement through ballet, tap and modern dance. At the age of 13, Savanah was diagnosed with severe scoliosis in her thoracic spine. After consulting with many doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists, Savanah realized that her love for movement is not only a passion, but a necessity for pain reduction. She started doing yoga in college, and found relatively early in her journey that yoga was the best method for pain relief. Her passion for yoga has grown tremendously and continues to be an essential element of her life. In 2015, Savanah became a Certified Yoga Teacher, RYT-200, through Holistic Yoga School in Fort Collins and has been teaching yoga through the vinyasa, hatha and yin traditions since the completion of her training. She loves teaching all experience levels and is eager to share what she has learned. She knows that yoga can be practiced by anyone willing to take a moment to breathe, relax and play. She is excited to continue to grow and learn from this beautiful Fort Collins yoga community!

After completing a 200-hour training she was compelled to continue her education, so she headed to Costa Rica for an immersion.
