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. I chose the Centered Yoga 200 hour teacher training in order to not only deepen my asana practice, but to look inward in order to learn more about myself.
Before the training, I saw yoga as a way to help myself and others, but did not realize the importance of the breathe. Paul and Jill helped me deepen my pranayama and meditative practices, showing me that anything is possible when you breathe. The Island of Koh Samui, Thailand is gorgeous. Meditating and hearing the waves brush up against the shore were a daily ritual, but it felt like a dream. Arielle’s anatomy course forged a connection between the body, the soul and the breathe which allowed for me to acknowledge the beauty and complexity of the human body. I cannot thank Samahita enough for this rigorous course and extensive training in yoga.
