Samantha Jones Garrison
Yogala Founder, Yoga & Meditation Teacher, Reiki Master
A dancer since she was 3, Sam's loved a disciplined physical practice and expressing herself through movement. After boarding school in New England, ballet gave way to yoga. Through the evolution from teenager to adult (college, a series of Hollywood assistant jobs, marriage, babies and many many homes), yoga kept her feet on the ground and spirit full of freedom.
She's practiced Iyengar, Bikram, Sivananda, Anusara and now through the myriad of inspiring teachers at Yogala, incorporated many more styles into her evolving practice. In 2008, she completed teacher training at YogaWorks in NYC.
With the help of many in the local community and many of the teachers who are still growing Yogala today, Sam opened Yogala in March of 2011.
Through her classes and the others at Yogala, she is dedicated to offering a variety of ways for our community to grow together with flexibility, strength and peace in our bodies, minds & souls.
