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 DailyBreathJournal.com 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.
