Personalised Yoga¬†in Detail
Do yoga on the beach in Thailand! The classes are typically conducted in our beachfront yoga shala facing the sea or in the main practice yoga shala.
Meditation & pranayama (breath work) classes
Open up your day with our signature guided meditative practice and simple breath work. This is an excellent practice for decreasing stress, increasing mental clarity and settling the mind.¬†
Mediation cannot be done. It is a force that rises from within. The senses are withdrawn and full concentration of the mind occurs. As it extends, the state of mediation is reached. At Samahita our teachers will help you to develop a fertile ground for this meditation to occur, through all of the yogic techniques and practices from asana, breath work and pranayama to healthy eating and learning to watch your daily activity and behaviour.
Pranayama is a practice that develops emotional strength and balance. It uses the breath as well as the entire respiratory system to purify and strengthen the nerves, which-when practiced consistently over time-leads to greater control of the senses, as well as a calmer, clearer mind and a great ability to handle stress in all situations.
Paul has studied pranayama for many years under one of its few remaining authorities, Sri O.P. Tiwari, who has taught him (and only one other student) the complete Pranayama. Paul continues to practice at a very advanced level under the close guidance of Tiwariji, who is the direct disciple of Swami Kuvalayananda, founder of the Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute.
At Samahita we teach Classical Yoga. This is a non-dogmatic approach to the rich tradition of yoga practices. It is based on a correct understanding of the nature and purpose of the different practices, be they asana, breath, or others. This understanding helps inform the approach of the particular practice, which goes past the mere physical effect and presentation to the subtle aspects. These gross to subtle elements, principles, are well explained by the tradition of yoga, which can be interpreted as its scientific base. This is how yoga has survived over the millenia, through correct understanding of the nature of practices, learning them well and continuing practice. Classical Yoga maintains integrity by staying true to these aspects.¬†
Ashtanga Vinyasa is a beautiful yet thorough approach to asana practice. It is rooted in a solid tradition and carries with it this strength of thousands of years. Ashtanga is the basis of so many approaches today. It masterfully presents the asanas and lets the students move through them, growing and undoing the blocks they encounter. It incorporates movement with breath, a unique science in its own right. Its real advantage is that it gives the student a practice and something to always progress and develop in.
Paul and the teachers are highly experienced in this practice. Paul, specifically, was one of a few in the world directly certified by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois.
The Ashtanga Mysore style is a very thorough approach to the practice of yoga. The sequence begins with basic postures, later opening up and revealing its depth as students continue to practice. The Mysore approach works with students individually, so that they progress according to their level. A beginner starts with only a few poses, gradually adding more and more as your practice develops and your proficiency and commitment evolve. This ensures that the student is always challenged and growing while, at the same time, practicing at the level appropriate for you.
