Samahita Yoga Retreats
Classical Pranayama and Asana: Renewal of Peace through Practice
January 26 - February 2, 2013
with Elonne Stockton
About the Retreat
The beginning of the year is a great time to establish or reestablish our connection and dedication to practice. It is through our commitment to regular practice that we are able to enhance our lives, moving towards overall growth and positive development.
In this retreat, students will be given specific tools to work with and will leave with a clear direction, with a personal practice to keep up and grow with. Throughout the week we will develop our self-practice of yoga asana and breathwork - pranayama. And we will also take a deeper look at other elements of practice, like chanting and philosophy.
In the mornings there will bebreathwork - pranayama, mantra work and asana practice (led asana and self practice classes). In the afternoon we will have workshop and Q&A sessions, as well as pranayama and restorative asana classes. Some mornings there may be additional silent walks or walking meditations, and some evenings we will have optional meditation, satsang and other activities.
All levels are welcome. Please join us!
About the Teacher
Elonne has been a committed yoga practitioner and devotee since the early age of 14. She has lived and taught in the Bahamas, Canada, India, the United States, and Taiwan where she has taught asana, pranayama, and meditation at yoga studios, ashrams, resorts, schools, orphanages, hospitals, and clinics.
In 2006, Elonne moved to Asia, where she met her teachers, Paul Dallaghan, O.P. Tiwari, and Richard Freeman.
As Elonne's understanding of the practice grows, she feels more and more like a beginner, and she is excited to continue this journey. She feels blessed by the opportunity to teach at Samahita Retreat, and she is extremely grateful for the chance to help others while she continues her own studies. For more see her full bio.

Only after 5days I feel refreshed and connected! The rhythm of the center
is relaxed and calm - the class is blend Fantastic to be at a yoga center
that catch awards.
I was very impressed by the whole program and I have done many detoxes. I think this is the 10th detox. I loved this one. Even though it was the Candida detox and quite challenging, what I feel like now was so worth it. The support throughout was amazing. The staff forever helpful even through my tough moments and grumpiness. I had all the detox reactions (mildly) and felt very good throughout. More importantly, the support post detox and the help have been fantastic. Thank you so much to Wellness Director and her team!

I wasn't sure what to expect from a detox program. The experience was very educational and eye-opening. This won't be my last time at Samahita Retreat (and it is already the second). Thanks for everything.
