Sammie has been teaching yoga for over 14 years and received her Vinyasa certification from the Yoga Tree Teacher Training Program in San Francisco. She was born and raised in Java, Indonesia, where her first introduction to yoga came at the age of seven as she watched her aunt teach Hatha Yoga.
After coming to California, Sammie developed a passion for yoga. She has practiced and studied with many Bay Area instructors such as Tim Thompson, Gretchen Mehlhoff, Jamie Lindsay, and Stephanie Snyder as well as with Ana Forest and Richard Freeman.
Her classes focus on strengthening, aligning, and cleansing the body to release tension and to bring calmness to the mind through breath and movement.
