What an inner jouney in Samahita ! I took this 200 hour yoga teacher training mainly to go deeper into my yoga practice. I already thought yoga was a life changer, but the inner change I felt in Thailand was really beyond my expectations.

I first heard of the Samahita Retreat through a recommendation from a teacher. Upon further research, I became intrigued by the name, Centered Yoga. Over years of practice, I encountered many flavors of teaching and yogic philosophy. I knew for my 200-hour teacher training I wanted a grounded but challenging course, both physically and mentally.

There are certain moments when life seems to happen, things around us  naturally evolve towards a direction that we do not yet, and then comes a  moment when everything seems clear and in the mind a limpid idea appears, such as an illumination or revelation, which we feel we must  follow, dragged by a kind of major force.

My decision to take part in the Yoga Teacher Training at Centered Yoga Samahita in Thailand was a easy one. I had visited Samahita many times before, and I never forget my first holiday there, the peaceful place right at the ocean, the perfect setting for a escape out of our busy and sometimes stressful lives.

I came into yoga from a fitness background and for many years used it as my stretching practice. I ran, cycled and did crossfit, yoga was my counter balance. I knew it made me feel good but didn’t need to know any more than that.

Before coming to Thailand for the Centered Yoga 200 hour yoga teacher training in Samahita Retreat, my relationship to yoga was very inconsistent and superficial. I knew yoga was good for me, but I was not disciplined enough to have a regular practice in my hectic life and I was mainly focusing on getting some asanas done.

I participated in the Centered Yoga 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in August 2018 at the beautiful Samahita Retreat in Thailand. Samahita perfectly balanced all I was looking for in a YTT. Paul and the team teach a yoga that is scientific, structured but taught from the heart.

Picking up yoga in 2014 from the comforts of my warm toasty room in Greenland meant that my understanding of the practice was mostly from what I saw on YouTube, which was mostly asana practice. I began practicing ashtanga regularly after being inspired by Kino MacGregor. However, the more I practiced the more questions I seemed to have.

Despite of my professional establishment in the fitness field, i.e., 2 years as Fitness Physique Champion armed with over 12 international recognized certifications & awarded as best coaching, I was holding back to start yoga for many years simply because I feel is crucial to improve multiple areas same time of your life, from motivation to habits, and tapping into the power of lifelong learning.

I came to Samahita to undo myself: my mind, body and soul. Upon arrival my expectations were blown away due to the kindness, compassion, and mindfulness exhibited by all of the guests and staff.

The 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training absolutely deserves to be described as an education in yoga. Even though I expected that Paul and his Teaching Team are exceptional Yoga Teachers my expectations were exceeded during the month at Samahita Retreat.

I have been practicing yoga for about 12 years now – pretty regularly, and various forms (hot, power, yin, hatha, etc.). The past 5 years saw a bit of a downgrade in my practice as I tried to balance working mega international events abroad with a regular practice.
