Guest Teacher Retreat
Discover Your Inner Smile Through Yoga
January 4-11, 2014
with Paul Chambers
About the Retreat
Start the new year off with clarity, focus and a deep sense of purpose! Join Paul Chambers for an informative but light-hearted week to awaken and deepen your connection to life, yoga practice, and your inner smile.
Paul delivers a fun and uplifting approach to yoga, working intelligently with the body and sharing his passion for yoga with kindness and humor. During the retreat you will be guided through Ashtanga yoga asana and Pranayama (Breathing Techniques), whilst also being encouraged to explore the poses, within a friendly and positive environment.
You will gain direct experience on how these ancient mindfulness practices are very relevant in today's modern world, providing an opportunity for you to free up physical and mental/emotional blockages. Find out what’s holding you back, wake up, empower yourself, and make a fresh start.
Everyone is welcome to attend this program, whether you are new to yoga or a regular practitioner. The idyllic location and the group energy at Samahita enhances the enjoyment and nourishment received and experienced on this special retreat. Simply connecting with other like-minded people can offer guidance and encouragement for your journey as you start the new year in the most positive and inspirational way.
Paul completed his Samahita Retreat Yoga Training in July 2011, and after gaining his 500 hour accreditation he was resident at Samahita for a 9 month work/study program in 2012-2013. Paul has a commitment and dedication to the lifelong study of yoga. And with a sincere daily practice of pranayama, asana and meditation, he passionately continues his studies under the guidance of Paul Dallaghan and Sri O.P. Tiwariji.
Paul delivers a light-hearted and uplifting approach to yoga, working intelligently with the body and sharing his passion for yoga with kindness and humor. Outside of his time at Samahita, Paul spends most of his time at home in Cairns, Far North Queensland, Australia, where he teaches weekly classes and workshops. For full bio click here.
