Neti-Neti Advocates

Samantha Collmar, Owner
Run Coach, Yoga Instructor,
Licensed Massage Therapist


Developing Neti-Neti has been a dream come true. For a large portion of my life I thought I was broken and the only way I would be repaired was to achieve accolades in school and in the workplace. Thus, I forced myself into curriculum and roles that didn't suit me. After I turned 35 years old (3 decades after a traumatic experience that completely changed my life), I came to the realization that the only way to be truly happy was to combine what I love (sports, yoga, wellness, and massage) with helping others achieve their own goals. 

After coaching runners since 2016, my heart lead me to the Big Island of Hawaii, where I became a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) at the Full Circle Yoga School in May 2021. I learned to confidently guide others in meditation, breath work, and traditional yoga poses from Stef (left) and Molly (right). But even more, these two exceptional instructors taught me the power of love, gratitude, and healing.  

During my Yoga Techer Training my classmates always loved my hands-on assists and encouraged me to become a Massage Therapist. Having massages once a month since becoming a runner, I knew I could help others, the way my massage therapist has always helped me! I earned my Massage Therapy Certificate from Stark State College in May 2023 and obtained my license from the State of Ohio the very next month. I returned to Stark State in January 2024 to specialize in Sports Massage and will graduate with an Associates Degree in Massage Therapy in December 2024. 

Balancing running with yoga has been a total game changer in my personal training. Additionally, with regular blood screenings, supplements, essential oils, and massage, I have been able to train year-round without exhaustion, injury, or distress to my body and mind.

I look forward to helping others achieve this same satisfaction!
