Private Yoga Retreat


There comes a time in life when you really need to press pause and come to center.  Time to reflect and remember who you are, what you need, and what you want.  Private yoga retreats at Samasati are designed just for you and will help to sort through the monkey mind to see clearly what is next.

The journey begins with an email introduction and exchange between you and Samasati’s resident yoga teacher, Stephanie McKenzie.  Guided by Stephanie you will co-­create YOUR unique private yoga retreat.  Go ahead, get personal and fill her in on your intention and desires for your retreat and your time at Samasati.

Stephanie’s approach is to bond at the place where you are.  She draws upon decades of practicing and teaching various traditions of yoga to weave together a transformative journey of self realization through yoga.    She will meet you where you are in your practice and also meet you at the foot of the mountain when you arrive to Samasati.

On your day of arrival Stephanie will greet you at base of our mountain and personally escort you to the Samasati sanctuary.  The immersion begins at 5:00pm with candle light yoga in the yoga studio. Dinner follows and then your days unfold with loving care and attention from Stephanie and the entire Samasati Staff.

We look forward to sharing a slice of yoga life in the jungle with you.
