My trip to Peru, with Samantha was a life changing experience. The retreat was planned beautifully, providing us with structure and also lots of freedom. Being a part of this Peru experience, shifted me at my very core. I'd never felt more at home, or comfortable expressing myself. It was the beginning for me, to be more honest with myself and others. To activating deep parts within my soul that I wasn't even aware of quite yet ! Samantha naturally works from a place of love, and intuitively knows how to move around many of the feelings that are deemed uncomfortable or untouchable. She helped to create a space for me that was safe, and I am very grateful for her dedication to her work. I am inspired everyday by the work we did in the temple and I love to incorporate many of the things I learnt, in my own spiritual practices. The retreat center was beautiful, and I feel Samantha also works intuitively in choosing and working with people who genuinely care and want the best for guests. Thank you Samantha! I am still seeing the ripples from the work we did in Peru everyday in my life. I truly understand this is a beautiful process, and I'm so happy that we had this experience together!

I had the pleasure of attending one of Samantha's women's retreats in 2018 in Peru. I can truly say, without a doubt that the retreat and trip overall has helped me evolve and have a much clearer vision of life. Samantha had very thoroughly organised the itinerary with a combination of yoga, meditation, writing, discussions and thoughts of what we were writing/going through/transcending, dancing as well as hiking and exploring and a wonderful scrumptious meal plan. Some of the activity was fairly new to me and I had to adjust; such as drawing and releasing so much emotion in raw form, however, It was quite therapeutic and nourishing to my mind, body, and soul.

The dancing was some of my favourite part as well as writing; and if we didn't feel comfortable or couldn't release anything to share she was very understanding. Sam has a beautiful soft yet firm spirit and you immediately feel her energy, warm demeanor and presence the moment you walk in a room with her. She has a gift of healing and nurturing. She knows how to make everyone she comes across feel just amazing.

We also did the Machu Picchu hike the last few days of our retreat which she organised with an outstanding tour company and our tour guide was fantastic and personable! I truly didn't know what to expect with this hike and it was indeed treacherous, long, difficult, slightly painful in many ways however immensely gratifying, nourishing and empowering; and the endurance (physical and more mental) it takes to complete is one for the books. It is difficult to put into words just how amazing and sacred this country is which is just one of many ways in which I can describe the retreat. It really has changed me for the better.

Astraya is exactly that, a star. A cosmic beam of celestial wonder incarnated into human form. Her angelic spirit is other-worldy ~ producing a mystical effect just by being in her presence. I have yet to be around a woman who embodies the sacred divine feminine so artfully. Her touch is soft and powerful, immediately inducing trance-like states that take you to places outside of space and time. Stepping into her yoga class is like stepping onto a mysterious outer space aircraft; you never know which star system or edible galaxies of sensations she will fly you to. Every flight is different, though they all possess one unique quality: no matter where you go, you always arrive back a different person, having been rebirthed and upgraded into your next level of higher being. Don't even get me started on her readings! Through out the entire hour I had chills rushing up and down my spine- her intuition so strongly channeled from heavenly realms... I could feel my angels right there with us. Her words are like candy to the spirit, so potent with truth and so rich in transformative qualities. She is the caress of Shiva and Shakti, of earth and sky's kiss, Experience her and arrive at bliss.

So where do I start ? ☺️ A friend invited me to attend a yoga class at Energize on Par-La-Ville road. I had been doing yoga off and on for years so I was definitely open to trying a new class. From day one, I knew there was something unique about Sam. I’ve experienced many different yoga classes and instructors but there was something quite astounding about this one.. I started going once a week on Thursday’s then decided to start attending twice a week. Sam used language that spoke directly to my soul. There’s definitely so much more to yoga than flexibility, it’s mind, body and soul for sure. I learned to focus on my breath and heart space. I eventually saw a positive shift in myself. So many things that used to matter no longer mattered. I became more grounded and humble. She encouraged me to challenge myself by trying the more complex yoga positions in which I mastered some while still working on others ☺️ 

I truly believe Sam saw something in me as well hence the reason she recommended that I take a Reiki course which proved to be beneficial. I now understand the significance of meditation and mindfulness practices. 

One notable experience that really stood out to me was one day while in the child pose position Sam said to the class, “Give yourself a squeeze and imagine being back in your mothers womb.” That is so deep on so many levels. The first word that came to me was “purpose.” I am here for a reason. I am loved, I am whole and I am enough. 

I highly recommend Sam. She’s been a huge influence and inspiration to my life mainly my healing and spiritual journey.  During the time, I invited so many other women to meet and experience her classes as I truly believe Sam is an angel here on earth and with gratitude I am so thankful I got to cross paths with her. ✨

Thank you so much.

With love,

There are a select few who touch your life in the most meaningful way. After meeting them their souls will leave an imprint in your heart and from them you will never be the same. These people you call your Earth Angels. You are one of mine Samantha.

Thank You.

I had the divine blessing to meet Samantha in Dominical, Costa Rica in February, 2014. I had come to Dominical spontaneously after going through a bit of an emotional trauma in another part of Costa Rica. This emotional trauma had become physical as well when I suffered a severe spasm in my lower back. I could barely move without serious pain shooting through my lower back and hips. I went looking for some help with my back. I found that, and something even more special and precious.

I still feel so fortunate to have connected with Samantha when I arrived in Dominical. After spending time with her, it felt like I had been guided to her by an angel.  Samantha's massage skills and wonderful touch and intuition guided her, over the next few days, to provide me with 3 of the most amazing and profound experiences that I have ever had on a massage table or elsewhere. The physical relief that the massage provided to my back was excellent. However, it was the energy work and the emotional healing that she did with me that was truly remarkable.I have had a lot of bodywork but had never experienced Reiki before. Samantha's energy work had very a profound and transformative effect for me. Without me knowing to ask for this work she knew that I needed it. Samantha was able to see past traumas in my life and through her work was able to open closed energy pathways that had probably been closed for many years. I don't entirely understand how or what she does but I do know that I felt very different after our sessions. My level of awareness of the World around me and of all of our connectedness has been re-awakened. Her kind, loving, perceptions of so many things that I had been through was extremely touching, and her words are so supportive and nurturing that I felt an amazingly deep connection with her almost immediately.

After a session with Samantha I felt healed and loved. My soul felt like circulation had been restored.I had gone for many years without having very many dreams that I remembered in the morning when I woke up. Since seeing Samantha, I wake up almost every day having had a dream that I recall vividly. I am sure that this is due to her help.

Samantha is a very remarkable, and wonderful being. She is blessed with many talents and skills and love that she shares with people in need. We are fortunate to have her on the planet with us and I wholeheartedly encourage anyone that needs some help with their physical, emotional or spiritual path to seek her out. She has changed my life for the better and I am sure that she can do the same for you.

With Peace and Love,

 Samantha 's freedom of movement is so inspiring to me; I had totally forgotten how healing it was to move in my body and how much I used to enjoy it 20 years ago. I experienced her teaching last summer in 2014. I had encountered many aha moments during it. She held space with such love. It tremendously helped me to accept the femininity as a strength, where I had seen it as weakness and had shoved it in a corner not to be seen or heard. When in fact as Samantha explained; our femininity is a gift, counter half to the one divine sacred flame. As women it is vital for that we allow our womanhood to be seen and heard in a positive way. Samantha 's teaching has become the voice that pulls me up and brings me back when I lapse to my old way of thinking that I inherited for many years to 'protect' my self from the unknown. 

Thank you with gratitude for my awakening, and for helping me save the feminine within me.

"I feel so lucky to have met Samantha! She has been such a beautiful guiding light in my life. Samantha is a very special and connected women who I will recommend to everyone around me. Her spirituality, knowledge, and wisdom is truly remarkable. I look forward to working with her more in the future. "

 " I crossed paths with Samantha when I was at a particularly difficult point in my life and even though I only worked with Samanthaa for a few summer months, the impact she has had on me has been phenomenal. I think of Samantha as one of my teachers, and someone who is a shining example of her spiritual teachings amongst other things. She was instrumental in providing me with love and support, and a safe space, to work through the beginning of my spiritual journey and providing guidance in the way that only someone as aware and tuned in as Samantha can.

Samantha continues to be an inspiration to me and I would consider myself extremely fortunate to work with her again some time in the future; she is an energetic and loving being with the purest and highest of intentions to raise society's vibrations through her uplifting and positive teachings. To have the opportunity to work with Samantha is a blessing I would bestow on everyone. Words simply cannot express how grateful I am to Samantha for simply being her wonderful self.

"Samantha has an amazing gift of not only her amazing skills as a therapist, yoga instructor and teacher, but also healing and touching people's lives. As both her former colleague and close friend, I have learned so much from her gentle guidance and tenderness combined with a sharp intuition. She tunes into clients' and friends needs and concerns with customising her treatments & rituals whilst always educating on what is the best protocol and upkeep. She is very focused & tuned into her treatments and sessions producing the best outcome for clients in both mind, body and spirit. She has outstanding hands as a beauty & massage therapist combined with a soothing and calming voice & energy that instantly puts one at ease.

Just over a year ago, I had the pleasure of visiting her in the stunning Costa Rica at her place of work for a retreat. At the time, I was under some very difficult and emotional circumstances in my life. She spent much one on one time with me with yoga, meditation sessions on the beach and massage/stretching therapy. As I sometimes have challenges with a lot of anxiety, she helped calm and relinquish much of it and put me in a transformative state of mind and body. The stretching & different types of yoga sessions I was involved in truly helped my posture, flexibility and overall well being. As I was in a new environment with surrounded by such lush beauty and nature, I was able to tune out; Samantha also guided me on proper nutrition and we had some deep conversations that helped heal me. I truly have never felt like an almost new person after the trip! It was much needed.

Samantha has a big open kind heart & beautiful soul. I would always recommend her to any & everyone seeking some healing & overall better well being. I couldn't imagine her not in my life, or doing anything more than the path she is on.

I have always wanted to join a yoga class to improve my overall being. I did attend one class at a gym but it didn’t give me what I was looking for. A few months later, a new gym opened up close to work and they were offering yoga classes. I was a little skeptical at first due to the previous experience I had. So after weeks of debating, I decided to give yoga another try. 

Well I am happy to say I am glad I did! Samantha was great! She was warm and attentive and made me feel ok if I couldn’t do the complete poses. Her yoga class was different. It was not only physical but also spiritual. I found myself looking forward to the next week and then the next. I was enjoying these classes. I was overjoyed when an additional class was added and I was able to go twice a week. I started to notice a change in myself; I wasn’t losing my breath anymore because I was learning to breathe correctly. I was moving differently. I was eating a healthier diet. And most of all I was learning to deal with stress differently, in a calmer way. The things that used to bother me didn’t seem to anymore.

I participated for the third time in the Middle to End. This year was different I was breathing better and didn’t lose my breath as in previous years. My body didn’t hurt like it did before. I felt great and I enjoyed the scenery more as I now have a better appreciation for Mother Earth and her beauty. I notice little things I never did before. I enjoy the birds singing, the flowers growing, butterflies, even the whistling frogs at night!

Samantha’s yoga classes have made such an impact on my life as I am also opening up spiritually.  I am experiencing an awakening and now understand the journey I am on. I continue to attend Samantha’s classes and follow the path to enlightenment that she has opened up for me.  I am becoming a better person in mind, body and spirit.

I love Samantha’s spirit and always look forward to seeing her!!

Namaste Samantha!

Love and Light

Samantha is a highly skilled and experienced yoga practitioner who seems to intuitively understand what you need from a session. I always leave her one to one yoga private sessions feeling uplifted, inspired and completely relaxed. Thank You Samantha for providing such a fantastic experience - it is a joy having found someone who so much for what they do.

There are hardly words that encompass what it means to work with Samantha, because it exists refreshingly beyond the mind and deeply seated in the heart. Just to witness her own courage is to heal. Pure essence, divine, present, playful and constant. She is a blessing on every level of being to feel safe and empowered in bringing forth who we know we are.

I had heard about Samantha's abilities during a major transition in my life.
I decided to check out the metaphysical/spiritual/YOGA world instead of seeking the services of a therapist. I was curious if her approach/technique could provide a better way to think and feel about life, and the many ups and downs that we all go through.  I had seen therapists for years and really never felt better about things, or developed better tools at handling problems, so I was searching for a different solution this time.
On our first meeting (which is normally a free 30 minute consult might I add) I showed up, and literally talked and cried and presented the worst version of myself, including all my shadow thoughts and feelings. Samantha held space for me for literally 4 hours (for free), interjecting questions here and there but overall offering her deepest sympathies and genuine compassion, there was zero judgement on her part; I felt 100% safe. We talked about what I had been doing to help myself during transitional periods, and although there is no such thing as "wrong", it was clear that there was a better way - whatever I had been doing/thinking clearly was not working.  Samantha presented her thoughts and solutions on how to deal with my current transition in a way that I had never heard of: vision boards, art therapy, crazy dances, a meditative healing session, readings on several subjects like angels and patterns, as well as integrating a holistic food and body movement approach to generate good feelings and thoughts.  We did talk about the past a bit, and were able to draw up conclusions on certain patterns that were a result of past events, but there was no harping on those subjects, she offered very simple solutions: zone in past events that created dysfunctional relating patterns that I was used to employing, and energetically heal that pattern through raising my vibration and learning to love myself again.
i know this all sounds backwards and crazy compared to the traditional approaches we are all taught to use during life transitions, but you have to ask yourself: are my tools working? Do I genuinely love and accept myself? Am I attracting people in my life who are genuinely good for me and love me the way I want to be loved? Am I doing the work I want to be doing? Am I where I want to be in my life? If any of your answers are no, do yourself a favour and give her a call, you might just stumble upon a more cost effective and long-term approach for finding yourself again, and being genuinely happy! Or you could simply just find yourself a new really good friend! Lucky for me I found both!! After working with Samantha for over a year, I am now embarking on getting my 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate, as she has helped me to see how yoga is a great healing method that can be implemented into our daily routines.
