ABOUT SAM

Sam Turner Yoga in Warrior 2 yoga pose.

Hey, I am Sam. I discovered yoga when I was at university. It gave me an hour of peace once a week where the only thing that mattered was what was happening in the room. Once I finished my studies, I continue to attend regularly. It offered me a place to chill out, focus on learning more about my body and get a gentle workout in that was enjoyable! This was a massive turning point for me and the interest continued to grow until I decided to train as a teacher. I want my classes to offer the same benefits that I experienced.

 

Since completing my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2019 at Whitespace Yoga Studio, I started teaching beginners classes in Northampton, Northamptonshire designed to be accessible, yet challenging. ​These classes find a balance between strength, stretch and breath as my goal is to help students strengthen the body, experience breathing techniques and a mind-body-breath connection. I love to see each student's progressions as they practice yoga. My classes have progressed in ability with the students.

 

My world expanded when I embarked on a Yoga Nidra Teacher Training course to become a Yoga Nidra Facilitator. This practice is about rest, reconnection and relaxation. There’s no movement in Yoga Nidra. You simply lay down and listen as I guide you through a script. It sounds so simple but it is so profound. This is a fundamental of my personal practice. I offer Yoga Nidra online, through my Yoga Nidra Library, and in-person at monthly events.
