About the Teacher
Arielle has been interested in human movement since she was a competitive teenage athlete, which led her to pursue her degree in Kinesiology. After her degree and years of competitive sports, she recognized the healing and balancing effects that a committed Ashtanga practice created within her own body. In 2005, Ariellecompleted the Centered Yoga Teacher Training, with Paul Dallaghan, where she was fortunate to be introduced to Sri O.P. Tiwari and the study of pranayama. In addition to travelling through Europe, South America, Central America, India, China and Southeast Asia, she returned to Thailand annually to grow in her practice,prior to making it her home in 2013.
Arielle teaches with humility and aims to guide students toward a better understanding of their physicality. Arielle also teaches anatomy in teacher trainings and continuing education courses, at Samahita and other yoga studios. She is grateful to her teachers, Paul Dallaghan, Tiwariji and R. Sharath Jois who have shared a part of themselves to guide her along this path. For more please see her full see full bio.

I have been sick for a while, fainting with no founded diagnosis, experiencing muscle pains, stress and constipation for many years. A friend of mine invited me to attend this retreat. After 7 days of detox and yoga, I found that I slept well, my snoring was gone, and my muscle pain in my arms was gone. I highly recommend everyone to be open minded, your health will be better. The therapists at Samahita Wellness were also experienced and approachable. Thank you to all the staff for making me better.
