Samm Short is one of Riverheart's creators and owners and also a fellow painter and long-time student of Ian's. Fearless love and courageous expression are the two guiding principles that she tries to work from each day and that Riverheart has been founded on. For her, the practices of writing, painting, yoga, and meditation all seek to discover and express the same truth that love and joy are at the root of all things.
My first experience of yoga came when I worked with an NGO in central India that taught and nourished underprivileged children through yogic techniques. The compassion, tranquillity, maturity, and integrity that shone through each individual child was unlike anything I would ever observe before. This, combined with my own self-practice shows me that yoga is a tool to create a better world and this is where my passion lies. As a teacher of classical Hatha yoga, I focus on body, breath, mind alignment. I also teach yoga and mindfulness to adolescents and children.

"We had a wonderful week at Riverheart Retreats "
Spent one week at the Riverheart Retreats Family Retreat with my son. Everything was perfect, from food and surroundings, to a friendly and loving atmosphere created by Samm and Mike and hatha and yin yoga classes. My son loved the kids programme and I got to relax and unwind 100%. We will definitely come back!

Prachtige locatie, hoewel de "Rivier" eigenlijk maar een klein stroompje was. De gemoedelijke sfeer en relaxte omgeving waren geweldig. Er was veel aandacht besteed aan de aankleding en de eigenaren deden er alles aan om het mij naar de zin te maken.
