Siha Collins is a teacher, speaker, and wellness advocate who uses the principles of yoga + meditation to create transformative change in people and communities. Years after sitting on her first mat (a yellow one), she realized that cultivating a fun, sustainable practice had not only improved her Yoga, but helped improve her daily life. Her insight is that when people feel better, they do better. This led to the creation of Yellow Mat Yoga, a movement + meditation studio that teaches multi-dimensional classes for physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and social wellness.
Leading with humor and ease, Siha teaches the practice of yoga + meditation in a way that gives access to genuine well-being and well-doing in people’s lives. She believes Joy is a powerful tool for bringing meaningful change and calls on her diverse background in athletics, experiential marketing and team building to create a unique experience that balances structured learning with energizing movement and deep rest and is adaptable for all shapes, abilities, and class settings. Her dynamic, open-hearted style holds space for alignment to our biggest, brightest, and most powerful selves.
Siha is also pleased to serve as National Program Director of Connection Coalition, a south-Florida based 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to provide our at-risk youth the tools learned through yoga, meditation, and mindfulness to address the symptoms of trauma such as abuse, addiction, homelessness, incarceration, limited education, poverty, teen pregnancy, violence, and more. Since 2001, CoCo has been able to serve over 17,000 youth nationwide.
