Her flow classes maintain a strong focus on alignment and balance while integrating playful opportunities to fly and explore. Having dealt with knee and neck injuries, Samara has a strong foundation in thoughtfully guiding students through fluid sequences that incorporate safe transitions and options to modify or take asana to the next level.
Being an avid lover of hiking, stand up paddle boarding, and cycling, Samara has a strong focus on the complementarity of yoga and other fitness disciplines. Using yoga, breath work, Yoga Tune Up®, and The Roll Method® specialized therapy balls to both strengthen bodies and to provide stress and tension relief, Samara supports students develop healthier happier bodies.
Samara likes to start and end class with breathing and mindfulness practices designed to relieve stress, re-center, and connect in with your higher self so you leave the mat feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready to take on life’s next journey. Her classes are known for a divine tune down and aromatherapy Shivasana.
