Practice & Teaching

The suite of practices at Samahita is taught in a variety of guided group classes, teacher-assisted self-practice classes, or one-on-one private sessions.

Guided Group Classes

A group class where the teacher leads the class offering verbal guidance, shows visual cues, and offers some amount of physical hands-on correction to a group of people in one class, being led through the same sequence of activities or poses. Skilled teaching makes sure modifications and degrees of intensity are offered for the different capacity of each person in the class. It is an ideal setting to receive more detail and be motivated by both the teacher and within the group.

Teacher-Assisted Self-Practice Classes

practice teaching self practiceThis is a traditional yoga approach where the student has some experience with the asanas and is aware of some sequence to practice in. The teacher does not lead in normal group verbal way but rather approaches each student individually and offers a combination of verbal guidance, visual cues, or physical hands-on correction or adjustment to the position (asana) to either show how it is done, reveal to the student it is possible to do, help to get into the pose, correct or improve one’s position in the pose, or, most subtle, to highlight certain nuances of the body and mind while engaged in the asana. The class then is a mixture of people each following their own practice receiving guidance from the teacher. In popular yoga language (from ashtanga) it has also been called Mysore Style.  However, this is inaccurate as it is just a city in India and all traditions of yoga in India have engaged in a self-practice style. We believe it is a great way for a student to go deeper into what they are doing. Caveats exist where a routine becomes mechanical and dogmatic. A student should then be in a good guided class, as we offer here, and then come back to self-practice refreshed. The aim is to practice with awareness, connection and feeling.
