Samantha is an active leader in her community as she consistently shares her passion of awakening through teaching Yoga, Reiki, Meditation, leading workshops, and retreats.
Samantha found her Yoga practice in 2003, and embarked on a transformational journey that has, and still inspires her to spread love, awareness, and support throughout her community. Upon receiving her 200RYT certification, she was given the Spiritual name Sri Chandrakanta Devi-The Goddess who shines like the moon. She has embodied the name, as she is part of a huge collective healing meditation movement, in sync with the Full moon. Her Yoga classes go beyond the mat, as she believes in creating a safe space for everyone to journey into their own experiences. She combines the elements of the moon cycles, music, sound healing, and Reiki into her yoga classes and workshops frequently, and her classes tend to be unique and inspiring.
She is also a part of many amazing collaborations, and believes in bringing people together to share their life’s purpose and gifts.
