Schedule as of March 20th, 2022

My private practice is growing!

While I am grateful for the continued ability to teach meditation and yoga on-line, I look forward to longer, warmer days ahead that may allow for more in-person instruction on my clients’ lawns, decks and porches.

Additionally, I have a home practice space where I meet with students who are comfortable on-on-one indoors, as well.

This past winter, I created an on-demand library and started adding mini-classes designed to support not only physical practice, but also the more subtle practices of breath work, meditation, and contemplation of dharma (truths/nature).

As the library grows, I will add classes that are varied in duration, theme, and intention designed to balance, steady, and strengthen the mind/body connection.

If you are looking for individual or small group instruction in Southcoast, MA, I look forward to hearing from you!

 

Be well and thank you for being here,

Sammy

“Living Your Yoga” ~ A Retreat in Costa Rica

 Saturday, January 29-Saturday, February 5 in 2022 ~ SIGN UP IN JUNE 2021

Escape the Northeast next winter and spend a week at the Blue Osa, a beachfront paradise on the Osa peninsula in Costa Rica, one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world. Come nourish your mind, body and soul on this unforgettable journey. With 13 rooms and a capacity for 28 guests, this intimate beachfront eco-resort offers the ultimate sanctuary if you’re seeking solace from the hectic world. Nestled off-the-beaten-path in the virgin Costa Rican rainforest of the Southern Osa Peninsula, guests have an endless selection of quiet places to meditate and reflect. 50 meters away from the waves, you can see the private beach while practicing yoga from our elegantly designed second floor Yoga Studio. On site, there is also a chemical-free lap pool for an afternoon swim. Built from the ground up as a sustainable micro-grid that runs mostly on solar power, Blue Osa intends to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible. Eco-friendly not only in design, Blue Osa Beach Resort encourages guests to be mindful by implementing a morning silence to a pre-dinner ritual of presenting the food during their freshly prepared  organic farm-to-table  communal meals. For full relaxation, there is also a  full-service spa  offering Blue Osa signature facials and body scrubs. Massage practitioners offering therapies such as Thai and Deep Tissue Massage. A Chinese Medicine acupuncturist is also available.

ABOUT THE RETREAT

Ramsay and Sammy will offer two yoga classes a day (morning and late afternoon), along with extra specialty classes/mini-workshops (TBD by interest & time availability). Both the morning and afternoon sessions will vary in style and format ranging from active vinyasa-style yang yoga to gentle, slow-flow classes incorporating elements of Yin and Restorative yoga, pranayama and meditation. We will incorporate philosophy discussion and mindfulness teachings into time before and/or after classes.

The yoga classes that we offer will be appropriate for all levels of students as we will offer the chance to modify or add on when appropriate. So whether you are a beginner or advanced student, we will work with you at your level to provide a week of challenge and growth. During the day, you will have the freedom to spend your time as you choose….treating yourself to a massage, napping, reading, sun bathing or going on an adventure tour (hiking, surfing, zip lining, waterfall rappelling, chocolate tours and more).
