Samantha moved to Fort McMurray from Victoria, BC to join the Higher Health team in February 2014. After attending Yin Yoga: A Foundation Training & Experiential Intensive with Marla Ericksen at the 2016 Toronto Yoga Conference Samantha realized she wanted to instruct yoga.
During the city wide evacuation in May 2016 Samantha enrolled in teacher training in Victoria, BC.

The 5 week intensive training covered Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Chanting, Anatomy and Physiology, Yogic Lifestyle, Ethics, Philosophy, and Teaching Practice with a special focus on teaching Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, and Trauma Sensitive styles of Yoga.
Samantha is passionate about practicing and teaching Vinyasa and Yin Yoga. Her classes will leave you feeling nourished and invigorated. You will often see her practice at the studio in Sivanada, Hot twist & detox, Masala Ashtanga as well as any & all restorative and yin classes.
Samantha recently attended Tina James’ The practice of The Wild 70 hour Ashtanga intensive in October 2017 and is excited to incorporate all that she has learnt into her classes!
