Samantha Marcum

Samantha is an active leader in her community as she consistently shares her passion of awakening through teaching Yoga, Reiki, Meditation, leading workshops, and retreats.

Samantha found her Yoga practice in 2003, and embarked on a transformational journey that has, and still inspires her to spread love, awareness, and support throughout her community. Upon receiving her 200RYT certification, she was given the Spiritual name Sri Chandrakanta Devi-The Goddess who shines like the moon. She has embodied the name, as she is part of a huge collective healing meditation movement, in sync with the Full moon. Her Yoga classes go beyond the mat, as she believes in creating a safe space for everyone to journey into their own experiences. She combines the elements of the moon cycles, music, sound healing, and Reiki into her yoga classes and workshops frequently, and her classes tend to be unique and inspiring. She teaches in Ft. Lauderdale, FL  at P.S. Yoga Studios, Urban Namaste, Meditate, Bombay Room, and on the beach. She is also a part of many amazing collaborations, and believes in bringing people together to share their life’s purpose and gifts.

Samantha was born in Spain, and had the opportunity to travel and move to new places frequently at young age, with a Military father. She has kept both the free spirit and the discipline aspect from her childhood, and fully believes in constant reinvention, and creating endless possibilities in life.

Samantha is also a Reiki Master Teacher, Akashic Records Consultant, and is certified to teach Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Kids Yoga, Aqua Kriya Yoga, and has obtained Trauma Informed Outreach certification with Connection Coalition.

Blindfolded Slow Flow-Invocation of Senses
Pratyahara – translated as removal of the senses, is designed to take us from the outside to the inside, a journey for the yogi to find the Self. By removing the option to open our eyes on the mat, we dive deeper into this practice. 

Practicing yoga blindfolded has a huge impact on the rest of your senses. Allow yourself to trust each movement and flow with the inner essence of your self. As you tune in to the other senses, sound, taste, touch, smell, you FEEL your practice. Shifting your yoga practice into a movement meditation.

As we slow down we become present in each movement with heightened inner awareness. Aware of every breath, every movement, every sound. The thoughts become distant, and we find a pause-in the space between. This is where the magic happens. Present moment awareness. 

The present moment gets amplified, and we tune deeper into the breath, feeling and hearing the sensations of the body moving. 

Shedding the need for any external approval, and aligning with the internal knowings that we are all perfection. 

Samantha will guide you through a slow Hatha yoga flow with deep stretches paired with ambient, sultry beats to move you through the senses. Melt into your mat for an extended Sound Healing-infused Savasana.
