Samahita Yoga Retreats

Christmas & New Year Samahita Yoga Retreat

Celebrate the Holidays and Enter the New Year

Week One: December 20 – 27, 2014 AND / OR
Week Two: December 27 – January 3, 2015

with Paul Dallaghan and Special Musical Guest Edo & Jo

About the Retreat

Paul and his team will share in the task of teaching and guiding. Our expanded yoga shala space allows us to handle all students in different classes, as necessary. The retreat will offer a mix of Asana and Pranayama practice, along with practical workshops on philosophy and integrating yoga into daily life. Our intention is for you to feel uplifted and clear in what to practice by the time you end the retreat.

 

The first week will place an emphasis on Asana in the workshops, with more on the Philosophy by the second week, apt for an understanding to contemplate closing the old year and opening the new, with both weeks focused on the breath. Keeping things fluid Paul will still entertain questions on all subjects over the different weeks.

 

There will be a Christmas Eve celebration with special gourmet feast and performances and fundraiser for our local charities. On New Year’s Eve there will be a special ceremony to acknowledge 2014 and welcome in 2015 as well as a feast and performances. The special ceremony will help you close and heal the past year, setting the energy and intention for the year coming with an impetus to follow through on it. The rest of your time will be a nice break from all the crazy holiday happenings and commercial onslaught. Come and really enjoy a real break from the holidays.

About the Teacher

Paul Dallaghan

(Available during specific Retreats and Trainings only)

Paul Paul Dallaghan VDO Bio Paul is a well-known world-class yogi, scientist and teacher with 30 years of experience in the practice and study of yoga, the breath, and the meditative techniques. His dedication to the path of yoga has come from a combination of intense practices, meditative experiences, silent retreats and numerous pilgrimages in India, Tibet and Thailand. He was one of the dedicated few to put in many years with Pattabhi Jois in the old days of ashtanga vinyasa, certified by him, with an expertise in asana. Further, his dedication to the practice of pranayama for over 20 years leaves him in a unique position as the senior student to carry forth these teachings from his teacher O.P. Tiwari and the tradition of Swami Kuvalayananda and Sri Madhavadas. In addition, he was accepted into one of the top PhD programs in the U.S. to conduct scientific research on yoga and its effects. He is still a student and loves to share and learn. Sincerity, not seriousness, is the key to enjoying this path of yoga and meditation. He has led workshops and trainings all over the world, and founded the retreat center, Samahita, in Thailand, that offers teachings to students from all backgrounds and all levels of physical and mental readiness in Centered Yoga—an open-minded method to encourage inner awareness.

Paul is also the happy father of two lovely boys. For more please see his full bio.

 
 

Edo and Jo

Edo and JoEdo and Jo met in Bali at a yoga retreat and first connected through Kirtan. It was this sweet soul music that sparked a recognition of the eternal in each other. A vision was born in that moment that some day they would walk the path together, sharing the love of song and spirituality. Since then, magical adventures of music, yoga and seva (humanitarian service) have ensued.

“Through twists and turns over mountains and into deep ravines, we travel with the guidance and love of divine blessings, wonderful friends and fellow enchanters. Opening to Truth, as it unravels and unfolds us, connecting us with who we really are.”

Edo and Jo reside half the year in India at Narayani Peedam where they study, lead regular kirtan and yoga events. May to July is spent mostly in Bali where they run yoga retreats, weekly residency at The Yogabarn in Ubud, the Bakthi Yoga component at yoga teacher trainings (link) and Sacred Sound Yoga at the award-winning sacred arts and healing resort, Fivelements.

In Sydney regular places of enchantment include BodyMindLife, Yoga Synergy, Qi Yoga, Manly Yoga, Mangrove Satyananda, Mantra Yoga, Absolute Photography, Yogamoves, and Harmony Centre. Interstate and overseas travel include Byron Spirit Festival, Sydney Spirit, Bodhi Festival, Yoga Om, Samudra in Western Australia; 136.1 Yoga in India. Edo and Jo have toured in Australia with Dave Stringer and internationally in Bali and India partnering with Twee Merrigan, Yoga Arts (Louisa Sear, Lucy Roberts), Emil Wendel, Yogacoach (Mark Breadner).
