Cory Dillingham, Studio Manager, Yoga Instructor
Cory is calming, nurturing and authentic. Yoga has taught her that the practice is both a lifestyle and a journey. While deepening her practice in 2014, she began to understand yoga on a more therapeutic level. Seeing the impact yoga had on her life during that time inspired her to travel and learn the teachings of yoga. She went to Spain and completed my 200 RYT and a few years later decided to take upon another 200 YTT at Old Town Yoga in Fort Collins, Colorado. The style of yoga she represents is gentle and calming. She believes taking time in each asana and that using the breath is key to bringing awareness into the body and mind.

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!
