Samahita Retreat - Newsletter January 2011
Samahita Retreat has its early roots in my days of teaching classes, workshops and trainings in New York in the late 90s. It was then Centered Yoga was born and for these past twelve years it's been the vehicle for all our courses. On one of my trips to Ananda Ashram I spent time with Sanskrit scholar, Dr. Sharma, and discussed this Centered yoga concept in sanskrit terms. He advised the best translation would be Samahita. It is a beautiful word, used in the sutras and other teachings and gives a meaning of balanced, centered within, as well as truly getting to know oneself through work on oneself. The word itself has long lived in my mind. Only recently did we title our Wellness Center with it, as the meaning of 'balanced' is its essence. It now seems fitting to give Samahita Retreat its own distinct identity and so use this 'Samahita'. It is our brand highlighting our individual nature based on a strong history and lineage. Samahita, moving towards balance with integrity. Please join us when you have the chance.
Our very best wishes for the New Year.
With love and respect,

It was one of my greatest holidays! Travelling as a single person I did not feel alone at any time because of the great people at Samahita Retreat. I will come back for sure!

I recommend taking the time to do the detox, especially if you are here for a course. Time for yourself with surrounding support is best. Enjoy and observe all processes and having the time to reflect is key.
