Samahita Wellness Program Team
We invite you to meet our Wellness Program & Wellness Retreat staff
Rebecca is a Health Coach, yoga, pilates teacher and a reiki practitioner. Rebecca started working in the fitness industry in 1996 as a result of her passion for inspiring, motivating and educating others in improving their health and wellbeing. This included a variety of group fitness and pilates classes, and personal training sessions on exercise and nutrition. After discovering yoga for her personal benefit, life started to shift in a very profound way. Within a few years of self-discovery through yoga, she knew that it was time to expand her repertoire. Rebecca completed her Centered Yoga teacher training in 2011 in Thailand, and then returned to Sydney to share what she had learnt. Her desire to help spread the magic of yoga was ignited. Rebecca has continued to educate and expand her consciousness with many great teachers around the world, and is a certified health coach with The Institute of Integrative Nutrition. In 2016 she moved to Thailand to work at a Detox Retreat Center as wellness manager, where she was able to continue inspiring, supporting and educating people on a much deeper level. Rebecca believes in bio-individuality when it comes to the food that we eatāone personās food is another personās poison. Tuning into how we feel after we eat will give us a good indication as to what foods are good for us. When we get out of head and into our heart, our body naturally finds balance. Combinning the right food choices and lifestyle for us as an individual, will lead us in the right direction for a happy, healthy, life. Rebecca loves to travel and explore the unknown. Travel has opened up her eyes, spread her wings and given her the confidence to fly. She believes if we set clear intentions, take action with inspiration and excitement rather than control and manipulation, life will be kind to us.
Manuel I was born in a beautiful Andalucian village called BegĆjar, Spain. When I was fifteen years old, my family and I moved to the North of Spain and since then I have been travelling and living in different places around the world. I practiced yoga for the first time back in 2004 in the Spanish Pyrenees. I fell in love with it and since then I knew I wanted to teach yoga. That was just the beginning of a journey and my research would take me to other places like Ireland and Italy, where I lived and practiced yoga for a few years. I travelled to India in 2010 and Thailand in 2014 where I completed my Centered Yoga teacher training at Samahita Retreat with Paul Dallaghan. I have been involved with nutrition, organic food, vegan and vegetarian food for the last few years, working and collaborating as a cook with yoga retreats in Europe. I believe that the combination of a healthy diet and yoga practice are great tools for reaching our full potential as human beings. For more, please read full bio
