Our history & our Intention
The CompanYogi was born in Dallas, Texas in 2015. Our intention is to bring the healing benefits of Yoga to people that work in an office environment, and have no time to go to a gym. So, here we are, to teach Yoga to your team, at anytime, in any open space, and in any style. And the great thing is that the only thing they need, is to have an open mind and a body.
Sandra Akins, Founder of The CompanYogi; worked for many years in the corporate world. She knows about the terrible effects of siiting too long on a chair. Some of these effects are poor circulation, back problems, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and slower metabolism among other problems. Sitting is considered the “New smoking.”
Sandra found that Yoga can help reduce, and in many cases mitigate these effects. Yoga provides strength, flexibility, mental focus and stress relief. Yoga is by far, one of the best exercises people can do at any age, to reconnect to themselves, and to improve their overall health.
To provide high quality Yoga classes to Companies located in Dallas & Fort Worth
I want to see companies, embracing our brand, by not only wearing a T-Shrit, but by becoming continue Yoga practicioners.
That make yoga, not only a practice offered by their company, but a practice that becomes part of their regular lives.

Valeria Rodriguez RYT 200
My journey of yoga began with Bikram style yoga when I was 16 years old. My goal was to be fit for prom, but what I got out yoga was so much more. Over time, I continued my practice and learned that yoga helped me with my stress levels during college. After 8 years of yoga, I came to a point in my practice where I felt I needed a change. I tried Crossfit for a year, but I found my body and mind wandering back to yoga. Then I was introduced to Vinyasa style yoga, which I immediately fell in love with. During my Vinyasa practice, I was laid off and decided it was the perfect point in my life to pursue my passion for teaching yoga. I began my journey as an instructor by earning two certifications and teaching my friends and family. My favorite style to teach is a more upbeat rhythm with a lot of movement, generating heat and excitement!
