Her teachings touch the heart of our inner nature and allow it to shine, even during times of stress, anxiety and the deepest grief. Sami’s study of these healing practices began after her older son’s suicide in 2003. Her workshops help others find the peace and centeredness that has gently nestled its way into her heart, as her grief has blossomed into a deep understanding of our intimate connection to everything.

She has completed the RYT-200 certification through the Yoga School of Therapeutics, with an emphasis on Pranayama & Meditation.
