The morning flow may also include chanting, pranayama, slow flow, and meditation. After a day of exploring and adventure, we complete our experience by practicing Gentle Flow, Traditional Hatha, and Vinyasa yoga in a safe, supportive, and grateful evening yoga session.

Samin, Our Teacher
Namaste. My name is Samin, pronounced SA-MEEN, and I am an Experienced Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher, E-RYT® 200 and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Providers, YACEP. I completed my training in Mysore, India.
I have studied multiple variations of yogic discipline. The different styles I’ve greeted on this path have been Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yin, Restorative, Power yoga, Vinyasa Flow and traditional Hatha yoga. In addition, pranayama, meditation, chanting, anatomy, diet, mindfulness, and yogic philosophy are essential to my practice.
I firmly believe in keeping an open mind and heart in all that you do. This mindset has brought me to various ashrams and yoga programs throughout the world. I have experienced the ways of Osho at the Osho International Meditation Center in Pune, India. I’ve studied at the Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ashram in Bangalore, India. I completed a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation at the Dhamma Shringa in Kathmandu, Nepal. And I’ve practiced at the birthplace of Ashtanga Yoga at Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI).
Yoga has helped me through some of the hardest moments in my life and continues to help me to feel free, healthier, and happier each and every day. My objective is to share the art of yoga and lead others on the path of peace and harmony.
