Samantha, grew up in Millbrook and worked in NYC full time for many years. After 22 years of a fast paced life as an interior designer and owner of her own business, Samantha made a conscious shift and commitment to focus on her health and wellbeing. Inspired to find the balance with life and health as her body was struggling, it had begun to reflect the toll of 32 years as a type 1 insulin depended diabetic as well as hip injuries. Samantha chose to explore many different options, one of them being a commitment to deepening her practice of meditation and the study of yoga. Samantha completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training at Sadhana Center for Yoga and Meditation in Hudson, NY under the enlightened guidance of her teachers Sondra Loring and Raghunath Cappo. During the training Samantha learned the strength of connecting deeply into self compassion and loving kindness toward herself and others through movement, meditation and breath. Samantha brings this compassion to her yoga teachings, helping people find acceptance and compassion within themselves. Samantha is currently studying for her 500 hours Yoga Teacher Training at Satya in Rhinebeck.
