Savanah Benedick, Yoga Instructor
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!
Cory Dillingham, Yoga Instructor
Cory believes that a yoga practice is both a lifestyle & a journey. Deepening her own practice helped her to understand yoga on a more therapeutic level, seeing the impact it had on her life inspired her to travel and learn its teachings.
In 2014 she traveled to Spain and completed her first 200 hour yoga teacher training. In 2017 she took her second 200 hour yoga teacher training in Fort Collins, Colorado. In January 2020 she completed a very different training program, a 200 hour mindful grieving yoga therapy training through the Grief Support Network in Boulder, Colorado.
The style she represents is gentle and calming, taking time in each asana and using the breath being key to bringing awareness into the body and mind. Cory also has a passion for jewelry making. She makes mala necklaces known as prayer beads as a way to heal her heart. She loves to be outside in nature, gathering herbs for medicine making.
