What Lynette did not realise is that she was laying the foundation for her life dedicated to teaching yoga, focusing on awakening students’ inner-teacher; connecting them with their innate wisdom, strength, resilience and fortitude. While helping them live boldly with authenticity, passion, humour and joy and reminds seekers of the astonishing nature of this incredible existence and the extraordinary beauty of one’s exquisite human body.

Sami is a highly experienced yoga teacher with an international background. He is committed to healing the mind through good actions, love and compassion. His only purpose is to spread the knowledge that it is possible to find genuine and lasting happiness by taming and training your own mind. 

His practice is known for being wise, focused and fun. He has explored different kinds of practices, searching for a lighter body and mind and dedicated his studies to Traditional Hatha, the alignment of Iyengar and the flow of  Ashtanga Vinyasa. To settle his mind and find balance between the sun and moon, he dedicates his continued education to studying Yin yoga, Qi Gong, Vipassana and Shamatha Meditation and Buddhist philosophy.

He noticed that Yoga adapts itself according to the practitioner and social aspects. translating this knowledge and making it available to our current time is wisdom.

Our generation has different needs than the past generation. We are colorful, diverse, inclusive and accepting. Some of us notice that the world that we live in needs rest, silence and awareness.  In order to heal ourselves, we need to heal our community, the environment and the society that we live in. Yoga is about that. The healing path is grounded on healing others.

Sami is a free soul. Always on  the road and experienced with different cultures, he has become a citizen with no borders. It is hard to say where he is really from. He was born in Brazil and  carries that playful and enthusiastic joy. Also, his practices are noticeable a great influence of Arabic culture and wisdom, especially with their warm hospitality and generosity. All that combined with ancient wisdom, discipline and respect only found in Asia. Sami’s trainings were held in India, where he regularly returns to renew his knowledge and vows.

His experience includes teaching in different countries, such as India, Egypt, Morocco, Malaysia and Brazil. He has a business background which can be helpful to ground our energy. Be prepared to laugh, work seriously, flourish your potential, and find confidence in your vulnerability. His practice is a journey to the inside, healing yourself through healing the ones around you, whoever they are, whatever motivation they have, all beings matter in his practices.

Sara – Manager on Duty

Spending time in stillness, writing poetry and reconnecting through the practice of Ashtanga, she found the middle ground, the balance she’d been searching for. Her ability to connect with others on a deep emotional level directed her down the teaching route as well as sharing her insights & learnings through the poetry she writes.
