After spending over 10 years in Marketing and Sales Management in the corporate world Samantha decided she wanted more from life. She started searching for a career where she could combine her adventurous spirit, love for life, & desire to help people. During her sabbatical she developed her own nutrition & fitness program where she lost over 100 pounds & along the way fell in love with Yoga. After taking classes for over a year she began more in-depth studies with Yoga, Chakra Balancing & Meditation. A few months into one of the intense study programs she opened her eyes and realized that she could combine her passion for becoming naturally healthier, happier, and begin to heal not just herself, but the world around her. After devoting over 20 hours a week throughout a little over 12 months she began teaching a very eclectic personally developed style of Yoga on and off the mat.
Since then Samantha has trained with an impressive collection of many amazing experts: Dr. Deepak Chopra, Maty Ezraty, Dr. David Simon, Dr. Wayne Dyer, John Friend, Claire Diab, David Ji... In 2012 she began the study of psychology and has become one of the leading health and wellness experts in her area. Traveling throughout the world transforming lives brings her immense joy. Her knowledge and ability to teach and guide her students to healthier and happier people has turned her passion, dream, and true hearts desire into a full-time successful career. She uses a variety of tools and experiences to guide people to find their personal feeling of fulfillment in life and unity with body, mind, environment, and soul. As of December 2013, Samantha has taught over 4,000 hours of Yoga, thousands of students, and trained and certified hundreds of Reiki Practitioners.

"Most people will never completely understand the full concept of unifying body, mind, and spirit... and that's ok. My goal is to help everyone who crosses my path to get as close as possible to understanding who they are and how to develop their own growth, not following the path of others, but creating the path that is best for them.
Enjoy your life and create the best path for you, only you can find your true self.
Namaste :) "
