Each of Riverheart Retreats' teachers has developed their own individual style and approach. They will draw on a range of practices including Iyengar, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga. However, these are just labels. The most important part of these practices is that they come from the heart and encourage you to reconnect with your own body-heart-mind in an authentic way.
The meditation sessions will draw on a range of traditions including Buddhist, Sufi, and earth-based spirituality practices. The retreat also includes a yoga philosophy workshop each day to help you better understand how your practice on the mat can be transferred into your daily life off the mat.
Tara is dedicated to sharing true yoga that dissolves the individual into the infinite by continually pointing toward the heart and freedom. Yoga is a big part of her life. It brought peace and sanctuary when she thought there was none to be had and has opened her mind, body, and soul to the infinite. The balance of energy is her focus, in the mind, the physical body, emotional body, and on a spiritual level. She began exploring in the UK, then did her first teacher training in India in 2015 and now continues to learn alongside Jim Tarran at Vajrasati in Brighton.
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.
