Mia Neuenhoff - Kavi

My name is Mia Neuenhoff. I started a full time yoga practice around 2006. I live in the country, so originally my yoga teachers were on dvds and PBS.

I wanted more. The first time I actually took a yoga class I wondered how I would drive my car home. My legs were noodles. And I was forever changed.

I took as many classes as I could. When I traveled, I would seek out yoga studios. Yoga filled the sweet spot. It satisfied my mind, body and soul. Yoga means to yoke. I was strong and serene. I loved that yoke.

I received my 200 hour teacher certification in 2011 and my 500 hour Master Yoga Instructor certification in 2012. I also have a certification in Chair yoga and Touch Training. I am currently finishing my second 300 hour Master training. I have had the pleasure and great fortune to have received most of my training under Brooke Boon. I have also trained with Patrick Nolan, Shannon Paige, Adri Kyser, Carson Calhoun, Taylor Harkness and Amy Johnson among others. Yoga is a lifetime practice and I welcome continued training.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Yoga Pod community. Being a Yoga Pod Kavi (Sanskrit for wise and skillful keeper) combines my two great loves: yoga and business.

I have a husband that’s a nut and two grown children; a marine biologist and a tattoo artist. I have three heavenly grandchildren. They are my deepest breath.

I love to run. I love to garden. I love to draw. I love to knit. I love to read. I have no time for any of it, which is one of the reasons I am so passionate about yoga. I know folks feel guilty doing things for themselves and they are stretched thin. I don’t think it is overstating to say that yoga is something you do for yourself, but impacts others beautifully, as well.

Lots of love and gratitude,
Mia

I like to feel strong. Strength comes in many forms and I believe that yoga is the path to complete wellness. The mind, body and spirit are all connected in yoga and it makes for a beautiful harmony.
I moved to Texas 2 years ago from Florida where I practiced Hot Yoga and Mindfulness. Fitness has always been a lifestyle for me. I enjoy strength training, swimming, hiking, biking, white water rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding; basically anything that keeps me moving. While here in College Station, I completed my 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training and am registered with Yoga Alliance.
A former Early Childhood Educator and Montessori Director, I have a passion for working with young children. On the other end of the scale, I have implemented the Montessori methods working with my father, and others afflicted with Alzheimer's disease, for the past 5 years. I love working with seniors and am interested in working with the Baby Boomer generation to ensure mobility and longevity as we enter our later years.

Young or old, new or experienced, come join me on the mat! I promise it will be a joyful and empowering experience.

Charla Anderson

My name is Charla Anderson and I have been practicing yoga since the mid 90’s. I was a group and personal fitness instructor attending a yoga training at one of the health facilities where I worked in Knoxville, Tennessee.

I will never forget it, I kept thinking, this feels so familiar. It was so much like the modern dance/Graham technique I’d danced in high school. The movement flowed with breath. It felt good and right and so natural. The collective energy in the room was powerful. AWESOME!! My body felt aligned and energized, my mind was clear, centered and calm and my soul was at peace. I felt connected to something much greater than myself. I remember the teacher said during the last resting posture, “This is the time to receive, so stay present and just listen to your body. Listen to what it is telling you about your practice today”. I remember feeling thankful, prayerful, even. I was hooked and I wanted more. So I have practiced yoga (from Ashtanga to Bikram to Vinyasa Flow) off and on since that time.

The only good thing about time off from yoga is that I see clearly that I am better when I practice. With yoga, I shut off the chatter in my mind. I am able to yoke (unite) my body, mind and soul. The world would be a better place if everyone did YOGA.

My yoga journey began when I was searching for the perfect way to cross train. Being a horseback rider I needed something that would provide strength as well as flexibility and yoga checked all the boxes. What I didn't realize was all the physical and mental benefits I would experience as I dove head first into my yoga practice. As an Exercise Physiology PhD student I have a keen interest in anatomy and the musculo-skeletal system which plays right into the fundamentals of yoga, feeding my intellectual side as well as my soul. Over the past year I have had the privilege of teaching yoga and other physical activity classes as a part of my program and realized yoga had a lasting effect on everyone it touched. As I taught and practiced I realized I wanted even more, so I spent the summer of 2016 completing my 200hr here at Yoga Pod. I will be subbing for Ashtanga and various other classes and hope that I can leave people with a wonderful experience and a curiosity to continue their own yoga journey wherever that may take them.

16 years ago I was in graduate school, a brand new mother, and 50 pounds overweight. I put in a yoga video looking for one more thing to help me get in shape, and it opened up a whole new world. In Savasana, I found my first taste of self-acceptance, and with that my journey toward a healthy weight and a happier life began. Fast forward a decade and a half, I have learned and achieved so much and yoga has supported me the entire way. Yoga helped keep my stress at bay as I juggled motherhood while earning a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. Yoga kept my joints and muscles healthy and flexible as I lost those 50 pounds and earned three black belts in Taekwondo and Hapkido. Yoga breath sustained me through the birth of our second beautiful child. Yoga meditation helped me break through crippling depression I suffered in the wake of a catastrophic personal loss and helped me rediscover the joy I thought I’d never see again. At 46, I’m feeling healthier and happier than ever. I recently received my 200 hour SEVA Yoga Certification here at Yoga Pod, where I’ve been a student for two years now. During the course of training, I realized that I have a passion for creating flowing asana practices and sharing them with my friends. I’m an Aggie, class of ’97. In my spare time I volunteer as a counselor for a crisis hotline. I also enjoy gardening, photography, reading, running, COFFEE, astronomy, martial arts and time spent with my husband of 27 years and our two active, busy children. I’ve enjoyed teaching gentle yoga donation classes and my passion is vinyasa, power and hot yoga. I look forward to sharing my understanding of yoga asana, breath and meditation with new friends here in Bryan/College Station.

There is a chance you could recognize Kailey as one of your past local meteorologist. Although one of her greatest passions is weather she has always had a true connection to yoga. Her yoga journey began during her sophomore year of college when she roomed with a yoga instructor. Her roommate would drag her to the early morning classes so there would be enough people to have a class. Eventually Kailey would willingly wake up and attend the class. It was only a matter of time before she was hooked. Kailey has used yoga in all different aspects of her life and looks forward to her next chapter. Kailey recently completed her 200-RYT and is registered with Yoga Alliance. Kailey looks forward to sharing all of the joys of yoga with you!

I began my journey into yoga in 2003 after overcoming immense health challenges. I then received my yoga teacher certification from the Living Yoga Program in Austin in 2004. Yoga, nutrition, and wellness became not only a hobby but a passionate way of life over the past 23 years and helped me to triumph over adversity such as cancer, spine replacement surgery, and even brain surgery. Yoga has awakened more strength mentally, emotionally, and physically than ever imagined! It truly is a lifelong passion and daily journey for me.

I grew up in Austin and College Station, attending Consolidated High School and Texas A&M until moving to Colorado from 1996-2013, at which time I returned home to my beloved Texas! I am so happy to be part of the Aggieland community once again!

I teach a variety of yoga styles from hatha to vinyasa, restorative to yin, as well as power flows and hot classes. The focus in my teaching style is to help the student deepen their mind-body connection while increasing awareness, physical and mental strength, and opening of their hearts and mind as well as their bodies! My motto is to challenge yourself, yet honor yourself!!

In addition to yoga, I have a background in interior architecture and marketing, yet my health challenges led me down a career change into health and wellness. I am currently pursuing a masters of holistic nutrition and conduct health and wellness retreats combining yoga, cooking and food, nutrition, and finding one's passion and joy in life!

Lorelei had wanted to try yoga for years but had been making excuses until one morning she woke up and decided to work on doing more of the things she wanted to do. She rolled out the mat she bought years ago and started stretching and moving in whatever way felt good. Eventually she started watching short YouTube yoga videos-one day she missed, and that day was when she realized how much yoga affected her not only on a physical level but a mental as well. She began to research, went to a week long intensive festival attending classes and workshops from instructors and physicians, took a college course on yoga, attended more festivals and then accomplished her 60hr YogaPod Hot teacher training, and is continuing her journey and training. She looks forward to sharing what she has learned and excited to continue learning, smiling, and stretching-feeling good with all of you!

My first introduction to yoga was in 1994 when I started doing a sequence my dad copied out of a fitness book to help me with flexibility and stamina on the tennis court. I fell in love with yoga through Sirsasana (headstand). It is still my favorite pose and I continually work on perfecting it. After a trip to India in my mid teens I became very ill and stopped all physical activities until my late twenties when a motorcycle accident put me in the hospital for a week. I went to India for a month in order to heal. This is where yoga came back into my life through seated meditation (the original yoga pose). I returned to Oklahoma, where I was living at the time, and found the only yoga studio in town. I practically moved in and fell in love with Ashtanga. Since then I have taught soldiers in the US Army, kiddos at a youth shelter I worked for, and a health and fitness weight loss organization I volunteered for. I realized how much yoga had done for me so I wanted to give back as much as possible. When I moved to College Station in June 2014 I realized the only way I could keep doing what I loved so much would be to finally get certified. I completed my 200hr here at Yoga Pod as part of their first teacher training class offered. I teach Ashtanga, power, and peak pose classes where we develop specific skills needed to conquer some of the most difficult poses.
