Yoga saved Sami’s life; it’s from that place of determination and vulnerability that she shares her love of the practice. Armed with experience and empathy, Sami’s classes mix creatively challenging sequencing with candid rawness. After her first 200 hour training in 2009, Sami attended Level One, Level Two, Level Three, and participated in and assisted various programs with Baron Baptiste. Outside of Baptiste Yoga; Sami’s teaching is inspired by the steadfast alignment of (what was) Anusara, the lyrical dance of Vinyasa, the diligence of Ashtanga, and the value of slowing down through Yin. Sami has been featured in various national publications as a cover model, teacher, and contributor. Off the mat, Sami coupled her yoga with her design career and served as the Creative Director for several national yoga magazines and as a designer and brand strategist for leading sports and yoga industry names. Upon moving to Boston in early 2017, Sami joined the teaching and management team at Down Under School of Yoga as the Director of Marketing, Brand, and Strategic Planning.
