Samahita Yoga Retreats are for everyone, all ages
and levels, sincerely looking to learn and build a stronger foundation
for practice. For only a little extra money (compared to the Yoga Daily Program),
you have a great opportunity to go deeper into the practice and put the
entire practice into a larger context. It is the perfect balance
between the Yoga Daily Program and one of our Centered Yoga courses.
Although you have extra time with one teacher, there is still plenty of
free time in the afternoons to relax, enjoy the beach and the quiet
Throughout the week you will be working with Elonne, building on the
different yogic practices each day, so that you leave with some
essential groundwork, a more profound understanding and a solid practice
to take home with you. Those with a pre-existing practice will expand
on their knowledge and foundation, leaving with greater clarity and a
more refined practice.Each Samahita Yoga Retreat week consists of the following:

practice, answer questions and help students come to a greater
understanding of Yoga in its entirety. This extra time is invaluable, as
it puts the entire practice into a larger framework.
Although each week has all of the above listed offerings, there is a
specific focus for each retreat, and they are taught by a particular
teacher who will share their individual expertise and knowledge.This Week’s Focus: Restore & Relax
Most of us in our busy lives need to rest more than anything, but it
is often the part of the practice that we forgo because we feel we lack
time. Rest and relaxation are essential parts of the practice. During
this week we will pay extra attention to the importance of
Shavasana/rest and relaxation, incorporating extra time for this
throughout the practice. Learn about and experience deep relaxation and
rest. See it as an integral part of practice.
We will also look at how the entire practice can and should have a
restorative effect. Whether you are doing breathwork or asana/poses and
vinyasas/movement with breath, the entire practice should support all
the systems of the body. Learn how to soften the practice and find this
subtle aspect, touching a deep sense of calm and inner peace.

Elonne has been a committed yoga practitioner and devotee since the
early age of 14. She has lived and taught in the Bahamas, Canada, India,
the United States, and Taiwan where she has taught asana, pranayama,
and meditation at yoga studios, ashrams, resorts, schools, orphanages,
hospitals, and clinics.
