Building & Deepening a Practice with Integrity

October 4-11, 2014

with Rachel Grey

About the Retreat

Together we will explore yoga as a physical practice and how to incorporate yoga into life, aiming for a more holistic approach in order to gain insight into ourselves and the world around us.

If you have an existing Mysore practice there will be a chance to practice Mysore on a daily basis. And we will support you in deepening your practice by filling any gaps in its foundation, thereby strengthening and enhancing the more advanced aspects of practice as well.

However, if you are just beginning yoga we will give you a solid grounding to start you off safely and with integrity, and you will leave with a self practice. Yoga Therapy will be used as needed with the Ashtanga Vinyasa as a way to work towards the full practice smoothly, at your own pace.

The mornings will focus on the meditative practice including pranayama meditation, as well as some walking and sitting at the beach to connect with nature and the beauty of the beach. The afternoons will be an opportunity to clear up any misunderstandings that arise through theory, workshop and Q & A sessions. And we will end with a deeply relaxing restorative style class.

This will be a valuable time in which to focus, learn together as a group and individually in your own way. And we will also enjoy paradise of course!

About the Teacher


RachelRachel has practiced and had interests in various styles of yoga since 1999, and felt that all of it led to a greater understanding of her current practice. She completed her Centered Yoga teachers training with Paul in 2005 and has returned regularly to SYT over the last 5 years. Her main focus in teaching is to create an appropriate intelligent bridge to the dynamic form of Ashtanga, breaking it down so that each person is practicing to their own level and reaching their potential. She has taught in London, and more recently in Sydney focussing on courses, workshops and Mysore classes. She uses her experience from her daily yoga practice, workshop intensives in yoga therapy, back bending and inversions combined with Thai massage experience for a holistic approach to teaching and when giving adjustments to share the joy of yoga. bio.

I wanted to find, decide, honour, love, live – and I did. It was a true transformational week; I came in stiff, tense and shy. I found my flexibility and beauty again. My body and mind learned a lot from Rachel, amazing experience! My thoughts got a challenge and my spirit found new roads to explore handled by Dorien. 2 beautiful women and 10 beautiful circle members; a holiday for body, mind and spirit in a marvelous respectful environment.

Yoga Therapy helped me with my back ache; L4, L5 Arthosis and stiffness which I had been suffering with for 2 years and been intensely treated by doctors in CH with little result. That was a huge surprise. Many thanks to Rachel!!! She is the best!

One of the most fantastic things about Samahita Retreat is just how much support there is. There is no judgement if you’re going through a tough time, just alot of love and understanding and not just from the course leaders, but also from the staff especially the women in the wellness centre. I would definately return.I loved the yoga, Rachel is a brilliant teacher.
