Yoga asana is incredibly effective at both strengthening and opening the body leading to balance across the different bodily systems. Yoga asana is of ancient origin, designed to aid:
Of course, this is only possible if done correctly and practiced for a while. Our emphasis is on core support to aid inner organs first by managing the autonomic nervous system, and second, for equal impact on the spine.
In this process, mobility is key with strength and flexibility as good outcomes of the conditioning power of yoga asana. To help this development, we offer both guided dynamic and restorative classes as well as teacher-assisted self-practice.
A dynamic class that both challenges and conditions the body, breath and mind. We have developed three different sequences to target separate areas in practice. These sequences are spread across different days during the week so you get a more holistic effect on your body.
Skilled teaching makes sure modifications and degrees of intensity are offered for the different capacity of each person in class. You can expect to cover a variety of asanas across standing, sitting, forward and back bends, twists and inversions, as well as a movement base from sun salutations, and a variety of targeted core exercises.
Many flow, power and Vinyasa classes today have their roots in early Ashtanga practice. Paul was one of the few senior teachers of this in the past. Regular ashtanga is long and cumbersome but one of the benefits of having really learned it is the experience to know how to modify, adapt and change it.
In this class, you will still follow the regular linear routine of the system but infuse good detail and remove unnecessary heavy movements.
Restorative, popularly these days called yin or similar names, can take many forms, some being very relaxation focused while others being slow-moving or long holding of positions to go deeper into restoration of the body.
This is why there are four different sequences offered throughout the week so you get a balance of approaches. Breathwork and some sitting towards the end of practice are also incorporated, where you can tune into the sound of the sea and the nature around you, center.
Core sessions at Samahita are designed to get you in touch with your deep core muscles - to support your back, pelvis, and spine.
The core developmental classes are either mixed with asana or stand alone and only use body-based approaches without equipment of any kind. This class helps identify the psoas muscle, work the key integral core muscles, and continue with classic grouping core exercises that amplify basic strength and stability. One can expect to work on:
These classes cover key functional fitness principles in a high-intensity training format. Afternoon core classes incorporate fun, music based, dynamic exercises designed to increase strength and freedom in functional movement patterns, including rotational strength in the core, hips, shoulders and glutes, by integrating foundational body-based core exercises with top of the range functional equipment including:
Indoor cycling (aka spinning) with a direct view of the beach is a fun, mega cardio, fat burning, sweat pumping, fitness building workout. You don’t need experience, just your desire to ride. Fortunately, you adjust the resistance and manage your intensity.
Samahita's dedicated cycle studio looks onto the beach and is stocked with Schwinn’s latest Carbon Blue cycle technology in bikes. In the morning, there is a silent-sunrise-cycle while in the afternoon it’s a music-infused upbeat ride.
Samahita Retreat offers complimentary weekly excursions including a boat trip to a nearby remote island with snorkeling and a temple walk.
