Rachel 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.
Ivana is a Yoga Teacher and Wellness Director at Samahita Retreat. She trained ballet and modern dance for many years, taught elementary ballet classes and barre á terre and it was at that time she was also introduced to the world of hatha yoga as an assisting tool for dancers to go deeper within.
Realizing that there was so much to explore about the connection between the mind, body and breath (and how to relate this connection with one's life) she started to seek more insight by practicing different styles of hatha yoga, going to meditation classes and various spiritual lectures before finally settling into an ashtanga based self-practice.
In addition to receiving her yoga teacher training certificate in Croatia in 2008, Ivana feels very blessed to have had the chance to deepen her knowledge by completing the Teacher Training with Centered Yoga in 2011 under the guidance of Paul Dallaghan, Elonne Stockton and other wonderful teachers. She is grateful for having the chance to be a part of the Samahita team and thus contribute to the wellbeing of our guests as well as continue to grow as a yoga student and teacher. (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. More power to you.
