Samantha Cameron

Samantha ERYT-500 is a Vinyasa Flow Yoga instructor and is the creator of ShaktiYogaDances and Mindful Mandalas. She instructs dance at Wellesley College, writes for and is a professional Astrologer. She integrates these energies into her classes, making for a lively experience.

She says: because Yoga has helped heal and transform my life, I love sharing it. The charismatic exchange between student and instructor is a celebratory t wo way street. My Yoga background, infused by dance,metaphysics, poetry, planetary energies, years of hard knocks, and profound friendships infuses my teaching with physical, emotional, and spiritual layers of healing wisdom. While classes are physically demanding they also offer spiritually expressive opportunities for self-discovery. Along with a deep appreciation and anatomical understanding of Asana, classes are layered with the energies provided by: Astrology, Ayurveda, chant, mudra, and Pranayama. Each class is structured to flow with energies of the week and season. This opens the practice to greater depth and wider possibility. Selfacceptance and celebration are primary intentions at every moment. I offer gratitude to the many amazing people who have guided my practice over the years, especially my students who continue to be my greatest teachers.

“I am most familiar with Samantha, (goddess of love!), although all instructors at LDY are truly amazing. Gentle, personal guidance is offered as well as alternatives for poses that may challenge, allowing all to participate according to ability.  Samantha adds further dimension and illumination by incorporating the influence of the moon and planets to our practice, magnifying and enriching their power and opportunity.  In fact, she writes an incredible weekly email to each of her students shedding light on such mysteries and on the promise of transformation through yoga.  

It is the dedicated and inspirational leaders like Samantha that elevate LDY studio to the top in the area. “

“Samantha Cameron’s yoga classes at Laughing Dog Yoga are physically challenging.  She encourages students to move beyond imagined limits and consider the work as a “five year plan”.  You find yourself trying things that may be outside of your comfort zone.  Samantha teaches with great warmth, humor and grace, connecting with every person in the room.  Our Wednesday afternoon class feels like a welcoming circle of friends.”

“Samantha is absolutely fantastic! She has extraordinary experience as a yoga instructor and her cues and direction are really great. She has an incredibly ability to guide through 6-8 pose sequences on each side with seamless transitions.  Her practice is always lighthearted and fun. After a long and high stress day I look forward to her Wednesday night class to open, empty and align anew.”

“For the past three years, my Wednesday evenings have been brightened by Samantha’s vinyasa class. Her class is unlike any other class I have taken before, and I always leave feeling that my body, mind, and my spirit have been refreshed. I would wholeheartedly recommend her class to anyone despite their age and experience level.”

“Samantha Cameron’s gentle attention to breath awareness, mudras, and the power of inversion has guided me to expand my practice.  She is one of the most encouraging of teachers, compassionately pressing me to extend my reach and yoga experience.  She guides me in bringing balance and mindfulness into my own life outside of the studio.”

Horace A.

“Samantha does a brilliant job of combining the spiritual with the practical in her yoga classes.  Each class has a theme based on astrology and she works her students to best handle any challenges expected in the upcoming days.  The practical ensures each student is using the correct form for the poses.  She has a pleasant, outgoing personality that keep the students coming back class after class.  The neck massage at the end of class is worth all the work put in the prior 75 minutes.”
