About Our Yoga Retreats

Yoga Retreats at Samahita give you the opportunity to go deeper into the practices with a full daily schedule and more dedicated hours for yoga! Yoga Retreats have a fixed date, and can either be with our senior Samahita Retreat teachers or with a visiting guest teacher.

Some retreats focus solely on yoga, including yogic philosophy, while others invite you to learn about health, wellbeing and creativity alongside yoga. Retreat programs are suitable for all levels of students, and you will have the opportunity to work closely with your dedicated teacher to either learn a new practice or to work upon your existing one, asking questions and learning together in a fun and supportive environment.

Some of the programs are simple retreats, excellent for integrating yoga into a holiday or vacation. Others are more specific, covering areas of special interest and training. These present ideal opportunities for intensive study, to practice deeper, learn more, or sometimes even to begin the practice of yoga. Retreats are usually priced at a set rate that covers the full yoga program, accommodation and meals.

We offer four types of retreats:Types of Retreats

Samahita Yoga Retreats

Samahita Retreat was established by dedicated and experienced yoga teachers whose seniority is recognized internationally. We offer informative and lively programs on all aspects of yoga, including classical teaching of authentic pranayama, asana, philosophy and meditation from the tradition. Choosing a Samahita Yoga Retreat gives you the chance to deepen and further your practice or if you are new, creates an ideal starting foundation. There’s plenty of opportunity for discussion and personal guidance from the teacher as well as greater opportunity for going deeper into the study and practice of yoga. Choose from our five core Samahita Yoga Retreat Packages each with their own specialized focus. Restore & Relax – Breathe and Meditate – Align & Flow – Strengthen & Balance – Philosophize & Harmonize. Suitable for all levels. Beginners welcome.

Samahita Wellbeing Retreats

Our Wellbeing retreats have been designed to give guests the opportunity to learn and discover techniques especially designed to enhance wellbeing on every level. As with all of our programs at Samahita Retreat, there is a strong yoga element, helping guests learn the fundamentals of breath work and Yoga asana. What makes the Samahita Wellbeing Retreats different is the inclusion of alternative and holistic techniques to compliment yoga practices. From unlocking creativity and personal transformation to learning EFT or Thai Chi, Samahita Wellbeing Retreats are open to all levels. In addition, one-to-one life coaching retreats are available.

Samahita Health Retreats

Detox Retreat, Weight loss and De-Stress Retreats. This is a focused time spent on working on yourself, whether through a detox retreat, fasting or weight loss retreat approach. Experienced Samahita Retreat teachers will guide all levels of students towards establishing a yoga practice, and you will also enjoy the additional health packages, therapies and treatments from our Wellness Spa menu designed to compliment each individual retreat.

Guest Teacher Retreats

We are happy and privileged to be able to host visiting teachers who are experts in the field of yoga. Over the years we have developed relationships with them, sometimes teaching alongside them, other times studying under them. There is much to learn from these individuals, who despite being highly regarded teachers remain humble and always grounded.

September 22 - 29, 2015 Relax & Restore with Amy Arman

Relax & Restore

Samahita Yoga Retreats are for everyone, all ages and levels, sincerely looking to learn and build a stronger foundation for practice. For only a little extra money (compared to the Yoga Daily Program), you have a great opportunity to go deeper into the practice and put the entire practice into a larger context. It is the perfect balance between the Yoga Daily Program and one of our Centered Yoga courses. Although you have extra time with one teacher, there is still plenty of free time in the afternoons to relax, enjoy the beach and the quiet retreat environment.

Throughout the week you will be working with Amy, building on the different yogic practices each day, so that you leave with some essential groundwork, a more profound understanding and a solid practice to take home with you. Those with a pre-existing practice will expand on their knowledge and foundation, leaving with greater clarity and a more refined practice.

September 26 - October 3, 2015 Yoga and Belly Dance: Movement On and Off the Mat with Natasha Devalia & Dorien Israel

Yoga and Belly Dance: Movement On and Off the Mat

Yoga and Belly Dance: Movement On and Off the Mat

Dorien and Natasha welcome you to join them for a week at Samahita Retreat exploring movement and our relationship to it both literally and more metaphorically. No prior experience in yoga or belly dance is necessary, although if you have some that’s fine too! All levels and ages are welcome.

In the morning sessions Natasha will introduce and gradually build up a pranayama (breath work) practice. Emphasis will be placed on learning correct and efficient breathing technique with the hope that it informs and supports the yoga practices and in turn, the dance practice, and daily life.

The asana practice will mostly be in the Ashtanga Vinyasa method.  As the week progresses, the sessions will shift from fully guided to Mysore (self-practice) to allow for individual growth and expression. The asana practice will focus on proper alignment both external and internal using the breath, and other yogic techniques which will be introduced appropriately to everyone.

Prior to the afternoon session you will have time to enjoy the delicious, healthy brunch offered at the retreat, go for a dip in the sea, or take a nap by the pool!

October 17 - 24, 2015 Samahita Yoga Retreat Love Food & Yoga with Anthea Grimason

Samahita Yoga Retreat Love Food & Yoga

Start the day watching sunrise on the beach before meditation, breath work and tailored yoga classes. All levels will be catered for whether you have a regular practice, dabbled a little or only thought about trying yoga. Each individual will be given the support and attention you need whether completely new to the mat or a regular practitioner. The focus will be on enjoying the practice and learning how to use it intelligently to support your life. We’ll go back to basics, tuning in to the breath, checking in with the distractions of the mind, moving the body with focus and flow in the mornings and winding down the day with restorative and deep relaxation in the afternoons.
You will learn a basic Ashtanga-based yoga practice from scratch, or have the opportunity take your own practice even deeper, with the focus being on practicing with awareness and intelligence. Each class will build on the previous to help you, over the course of the week, develop a self-practice you can take home with you. You will also learn some basic breath work and mindfulness techniques to calm the mind and nervous system.
