Thursdays with Sam
I began practicing yoga in 2001 to help deal with chronic pain from a back injury. After a few weeks of consistent and mindful practicing my back pain had improved and I was sure soon to be gone. I was right! Yoga made me feel good physically and I began practicing regularly. After awhile the subtleties of the practice began to settle in. I beganto feel more confident about myself and more at peace with myself and the world around me. The yogic path became a way of life in 2011 when I was blessed to train with Anchorage Yoga in their first teacher training with my long time teacher and mentor Katey Inman. I began teaching the first week after training and have poured my heart and soul into my classes ever since. Expect my classes to be physically and mentally challenging. I offer many verbal cues for modifying if your new to your practice or working through injury. If you're looking for a challenge you'll find it in my classes as well. I try to make every class a journey with multiple routes bliss. I'm a free flowing vinyasa junky who loves to tap into the energy body through movement, breath, and song. Wahe Guru!
