Samara is a dancer that thrives on teaching at the intersection of movement and neuroscience to enhance resilience, relaxation and performance. As a certified Integrated Yoga Tune Up® teacher, Samara has a passion for integrating elements to support and empower students to re-discover an innate awareness with their own bodies, identify body blind spots and re-pattern a stronger foundation.
