What Students Say

WIN_20180115_135632“Of all the yoga teachers I’ve had, Sam is by far the most special and unique teacher of all. She has an amazing way with words that tells you exactly what to do with your body. Every class is a joy. I have loved every single class I have ever attended with her and none has ever been the same, which is just amazing to me that she always finds something new to share with her students. I have always been amazed at how she can teach beginners and yoga instructors in the same space, elevating the experience for all. Her classes have made me laugh, cry, and gain a sense of serenity that is difficult to ever find in every day life. Sam has truly enriched my life beyond measure. She will always be with me.” M

“Sam is the best yoga teacher I have had in many ways. She understand20160311_152917(2)s what yoga is all about, the physical and the spiritual aspects, and is able to project this to those in her class. She led each class always with a serene and caring attitude, and appreciated the uniqueness of each of her students.” L

“Sam is at once irreverent and holy, serious and playful, relaxed and disciplined. I have taken Sam’s classes for thirteen years and through that time have developed a deep connection to breath, chakras, movement and my own divinity – not through her preaching, but her presence. I truly believe she is gifted to bring peace and deeper thinking to those who practice with her, and I am so fortunate to have been her student in my lifetime. And did I mention she has a great sense of humor? A helpful thing to have when you are asking students to literally stand on their heads!” R

“I practiced y20160303_104600oga with Sam for over 16 years until I moved to the West Coast. I have not found any yoga teacher that comes close and miss her classes a great deal. Sam taught me that yoga is a practice and there is no perfect pose. She taught me to recognize the strengths you have in your body and not to focus on the weaknesses. Her gentle way of pushing us to recognize that we are stronger than we think, helped me to feel confidence that my body could do poses I would never think I could! She brings yoga to life with a sense of humor and a spiritual lens. As a teacher she has given me the gift of yoga that I practice in my daily life.” L

“I loved Sam’s yoga classes and only wish our schedules meshed so I could continue studying yoga with her. I’ve enjoyed her style of yoga – combining spirituality with breathing and physical poses. Classes were very calming and helped with my physical and mental balance and flexibility. She has been a unique and wonderful teacher with her caring, encouraging, and humorous style – always accepting the limitations of her students.”   SWIN_20160603_160135

“Sam Wilde is an exceptional teacher. She creates an environment in her classes that is accepting and encouraging. Wherever you are on that day, tired, sore, or invigorated, you can participate at your level. She wants yoga to be part of your day, for health and fitness. And lastly, she is kind, sincere, and attentive.” M

“I met Sam many years ago when I was a beginning yoga student. Immediately I was drawn to Sam’s energy, her quick wit, and her encouraging style. I also found that Sam’s flow class met my need to keep moving! As a newbie I did as much as I could but kept trying to do more. I never felt that I was inadequate because my body was somewhat inflexible or my sam in prayer poseposes were awkward. Sam makes all her students feel that they are an integral part of her class. Over the years I have grown in strength and flexibility and have deepened my understandings of yoga. Thanks, Sam!  I love being your student!” W

“I came to your class to feel my emotions in the presence of you.” R
