Samantha’s yoga journey began in high school in a required gym class. Resistant at first, she found herself looking forward to that quiet place on her mat more and more. She quickly learned that it was the first time after losing both of her parents, where she could experience peace. She was hooked. As the years progressed, she yo-yoed in and out of her practice, but always kept yoga in her back pocket for self-directed therapy sessions. Her mat has been with her all over the world, as she practiced and studied in different countries, receiving her first certification in Rishikesh, India.
Most recently, Samantha (Sam) graduated from the Teacher Empowerment Program in Steamboat Springs, CO. In this program she dove into the philosophy of Baptiste Yoga and techniques to empower herself and others. She loves bringing this work into her classes.
Her classes encourage students to be in the work of discovering something new on their mat, whether it’s their first or 100th practice. She believes that our bodies have limitless potential, and every new inch, every new breath, is a miracle worthy of celebration. Through her challenging classes, students learn to lean into their breath as an access to their inner reservoir of strength, healing, and limitless possibilities.
