Hi, I’m Sam!
My pronouns are she/her, I’m a full-time office worker, and part-time yoga teacher, mindfulness practitioner, and guided meditation facilitator.
After trying & giving up on yoga in 2003, I returned to the mat in 2014 and fell in love with the effects on my mind, body, and – eventually – lifestyle, as I discovered there was much more to yoga than just making shapes on a rectangular mat. After five and a half years of consistent personal practice & learning, I completed my teacher training in 2019 under the guidance of the wonderful teachers of Frog Lotus Yoga International, at Suryalila Retreat Centre in the beautiful Andalusian countryside.
I share the practices of vinyāsa flow yoga, restorative yoga, chair yoga, and yoga nidrā in person and online, and have a special passion for helping people who also spend many hours chained to a desk feel more comfortable in their bodies – as that was one of my earliest benefits from yoga, and my practice continues to help me stay this way. I also find great joy in sharing various ways we can support our bodies & minds through dealing with feelings & emotions, especially anxiety – as I’m a lifelong warrior/sufferer.
I enjoy supporting each student to investigate their own experience while honouring their body, free of judgment & competition; and I believe it is only by using the full range of yogic techniques that we can truly bring about a sense of peace, calm, and bliss.
