Our history & our Intention
The CompanYogi was born from the intention to provide the healing benefits of Yoga to people that work and live in a busy life contaminated by stress.
Sandra Akins, Founder of The CompanYogi; worked for many years in the corporate world. She knows about the terrible effects on the body by sitting too long on a chair. Some of these consequences 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 themselves, and to improve their health.
To make the practice of Yoga, a practice well known among all sectors of the Corporate World. So people can not only enjoy the benefits of Yoga, but enjoy lifes in plenitud, living at their maximum capabilities.
Our Mission is to provide High-Quality Yoga Classes to people working at offices and to help them to become stronger, improve flexibility, and reduce stress. With the objective to help people to live a better life.

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. Overtime, 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 of 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!
