Cowboy Hats and Yoga Mats
By Jenna Hawes
Cowboy Hats and Yoga Mats was created by Leann Hayes. Such a silly name must have a fun story.
“It was based on an impromptu park fitness
class and literally by what was in the trunk of my car.
I thought it describes my lifestyle perfectly.
I’ll be a concert tailgate Saturday night, but Sunday morning
you’ll find me at yoga class. Wine and green juice.
Cookies and kale. Rage and rest.
Life is about BALANCE.”
Leann has always known that a career in health was her calling – she has been working in health insurance as her “day job” but her passion is with fitness and fun. Leann carries such a lightweight spirit with a genuine care about others. Her reasons for beginning this brand was because she couldn’t help share her new recipes and fitness class experiences with her friends.
“I didn’t realize how many women .I am motivating and that I’m making a positive impact on,it’s an incredible feeling I feed off!”
It all began with Tone It Up, and from there Leann has continued to insert and certify herself in POP Pilates, Sports Nutrition, and is a Barre Instructor. Her most recent endeavor is Cowboy Hats and Place Mats- a meal prep service to make healthy meals more accessible to hard working people. Leann organizes retreats quarterly that are full of healthy snacks, fitness classes, nutritional education, wine, and plain leisure. The perfect Saturday mix. Enjoy all the fruits of life – hiking with a beautiful ocean view – yoga – toning your tush in Soul Cycle class – and then washing it all down with a fine Rose! Check out her Instagram for upcoming retreats, her meal prep services, and more. Leann is ready and willing to help you with your fitness goals!
“I live in athleisure (clothing designed for working out). I geek out over superfoods. I’m all about studying the science of how certain diets and programs work for certain people.”
