Return to Source Hatha Workshop
Step into a traditional hatha workshop with Samantha and journey back to the source of yoga.
Samantha will invoke all aspects of the traditional yoga she practiced during her extended stays in India to bring you an immersive experience during this three hour workshop.
You will be introduced to energy cleansing practices to prepare yourself as you step over the threshold into your morning’s practice. Samantha will share with you specific mudras (hand gestures) and bandhas (energy locks) that will bring a multi-layered intentionality to the different stages of the workshop.
You will practise asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditations carefully crafted to bring you closer to samadhi (enlightened bliss).
Learn how to balance your energy, maintain steady effort without attachment to a goal, observe yourself and feel truly alive in every cell.
After practice we will enjoy a mindfully prepared lunch together at the gorgeous Fields cafe next door.
All levels of experience & traditions welcome.
Step away from your every day and immerse yourself in the practices of the yoga of activity, Hatha yoga.
Focussing on the journey rather than the end goal, we will travel together through kriya, asana, pranayama, bandha & dhyana allowing each to penetrate our physical and energetic bodies to cleanse every layer of our beings and reach samadhi, ultimate bliss.

What our students say
Janet OliverYou asked for feedback on my experience at Same Star Yoga, so here goes: The location - Really convenient! I'm delighted the studio is so close to my home. Design and interior 'decor' - A beautiful, calm and relaxing space. Perfect for practising Yoga. Teachers - All the classes I've attended have been expertly led. The teachers are very attentive to students' needs & requirements. Prices - Very reasonable. I like the idea of the multi-class passes, which are very handy for those of us who want to try out different sessions.
Toni MeddingsI absolutely love my Hatha yoga, Samantha is a really special teacher! I have no dislikes but I love the smell as you enter, I love the gentle studio, the music, the Olive tree as you enter! I’m learning so much…. I’m so pleased I found you!!
Cathy BrownI can't recommend this studio and the teachers Faye and Samantha at Same Star yoga enough. I am now doing my Yoga Teacher Training with them which I feel shows how highly I regard their level of tuition.
