Led by Yoga Desires owner and certified instructor Samantha, retreats guide stretchers of all experience levels on uphill excursions into the great non-indoors. After an early-morning roundup at a predetermined public location, participants caravan in their personal vehicles to trailheads in locations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. From there, a high-elevation hike, averaging about six hours and ranging from 3 to 15 miles round-trip, challenges the physical and spiritual strength of flexible folks with a trek to a waterfall, a lake, or an otherwise breathtaking setting. Once in the wild, instructor-led yoga and meditation sessions are held for those who wish to take part, while others may privately practice or simply experience the vast beauty of nature without having to hide in the hardware-store nursery overnight.
Samantha, the yoga teacher and life coach behind Yoga Desires, creates a personalized yoga experience for her students. Whether they practice at the student's home or location of choice or her private East Hampstead residence, she gently guides students through the poses and meditation. She works with everyone from first-time students to experienced yogis to individuals recovering from injuries. Along with yoga, she also teaches meditation classes and hosts retreats worldwide.
