Sam has spent 20 years teaching a system of yoga that understands how to deeply listen to our individual needs and respond to them appropriately. A holistic health practitioner, shiatsu therapist, kahuna bodyworker and advanced yoga teacher she incorporates all her tools and experiences for the students in the classroom and the season they are experiencing.
Sam began her training in Shiatsu therapy in London, and returned to Australia to study with Nature Care and Zen Renaissance. She loved it so much she continued with: Ryoho Yoga Therapy; Traditional Hatha Yoga at Qi Yoga; Kahuna Bodywork with Mette’s Institute; White Tantra Oki; Ki Yoga; Iyengar; and Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow yoga.
Sam’s classes are a beautiful blend of balanced postures and mindfulness that brings vitality, joy and peace to the mind and body. Sam is always aware of the individual needs of her students and how they can best benefit from the various aspects of the yoga practice.
She has a great desire to teach across the community and has taught in yoga centres, high schools, preschools, yoga retreats, yoga training courses, retirement villages and fitness and wellness centres across the Northern Beaches and city centre.
Ultimately for Sam, yoga has offered her a path to be truly happy, more genuine and deeply connected to people and the world around her. Sam is a mother and when she is not practicing yoga or bodywork, she loves to spend as much time outside as possible, enjoying time with family, friends and the sea.
