I've been to Samahita several times, the quality of the yoga taught here is the best I've come across and the whole place has a level of integrity & family feel that makes it somewhere I keep going back to!

So Samahita has widened its scope to add spin classes and core classes. This can be added to the already established yoga choices of Mysore and Led classes or for those who aren't yoga inclined, can just add a bit of fitness to your holiday. They also have paddle boards you can take out which are particularly fun in the...

I had been to Samahita in 2009 with a friend, and it was still relatively new (it had moved sites) so the garden was still in its infancy. The ashtanga retreat was amazing, so I returned on my own. It is one of the best places I know to immerse yourself in yoga for a week. I just cannot speak...
