Sam has been organising and facilitating yoga retreats, specialising in Yoga Nidra and other restful practices for many years both in NZ and oversees. 

She is available to provide nourishing and functional movement classes as well as deeply restorative practices on retreats, workshops, or online events. The next one is coming up in June 2023 with details below (WAITLIST ONLY). You’ll find photos from a few events below.

During these COVID affected years, Sam has been involved in running the Thriving in Medicine Retreats, an organisation whose aim is to develop a platform to create conversation and sharing of ideas around workplace wellbeing in the New Zealand healthcare system. Sam’s practices help doctors to understand tools and practices that they can use to recover from burnout and support them to find resilience in their everyday lives.

Do contact Sam about running something for your organisation or a private group.

Feedback from a recent retreat attendee:

“Thankyou Sam, your yoga was the highlight of the retreat. I would love to keep working with you.”

And another:

“Sam’s teaching was beautifully offered. It felt calm, loving and accommodating. There was a lightness and humour at times, and you could feel the strong foundation of knowledge and wisdom from years of teaching and learning.”

And a testimonial from an attendee on the ‘Moved to Rest’ retreat at The Baton House in the Nelson Region:

“If you’re looking to truly unwind, replenish and be nourished, I highly recommend attending one of Sam’s retreats. She fosters a calm and supportive practice, where you can slow down and gently tune in to your own self and the power of rest.”
