"Sam's extensive experience, impressive knowledge, and kindness-based approach to yoga is always a joy. When I first came to Yoga class and an Ayurveda workshop while on vacation in Park City a couple of years ago, I never dreamed I could now attend them virtually from my home in GA. Thank you, Sam for tirelessly sharing your GIFT with those around the country! It's a much needed opportunity for connecting to others in the wellness community, and also a fabulous way to collectively take a deep breath. THANK YOU for all of your hard work, Sam! We appreciate you!" ~ Jana, Atlanta, GA
"How do I put into words how much I love and appreciate Sam? She has been such an inspiration and support during this time of "stay home, stay safe". Her FREE daily classes via Zoom have truly been a lifesaver: by helping me to stay active and focused on a strong, healthy body; by providing a wonderful sense of community; and by giving some much needed structure to these not-so-normal days. Her classes are varied - all the way from gentle yoga to pretty intense strength training workouts - and her expertise is apparent with every offering. Sam is great about demonstrating from different angles, offering modifications when appropriate (which means often for these old shoulders!), and helpful reminders about form as it relates to function. Best part? These classes are a gift from Sam, from her heart, because she cares. Namaste Sam." ~ Lisa M.
"During the recent Pandemic, I joined Sam's classes online. Great choices for whatever you might need! Feeling stiff or sore? Try the Gentle Stretch and Align. More of a workout needed? Try her Pilates/Yoga class."

"I have known Sam for many years through both yoga and fitness classes. During the COVID pandemic I have taken countless online classes from Sam. Sam is caring and enthusiastic. When I come to class, I can count on her smile to brighten my mood. Most importantly, Sam is very knowledgable about yoga, Pilates, and strength training. Sam is able to adapt a class to people with differently ability and fitness levels and while doing so make everybody feel good about where they are at. Sam has trained extensively in yoga for osteoporosis. I have worked with Sam over the past five years on my own bone strengthening yoga practice. I highly recommend Sam as a yoga and fitness instructor."

"Sam Zilvitis is one of the most highly trained and committed yoga teachers within the state of Utah. She brings such clarity and tremendous knowledge to the practice of yoga that students always walk away feeling stronger and lighter within themselves. Because of her depth and her ability to honor the heart of each individual, I highly recommend Sam to anyone seeking to create a joyful life through a skillful practice of yoga. She is extremely good at helping people to clear pain, create strength and flexibility, and she is great at working with beginning as well as advanced yoga students. It's an honor to have a peer that is such a vibrant ambassador for the practice of yoga"
"I have been attending Sam's Basic yoga classes at The Shop for about four years. She is very welcoming to both regulars and visitors to Park City. I particularly value the tone and speed of her classes, and every time I get on my mat I learn something new, whether it be about a pose or about my body! She is physically strong, and demonstrates the levels of poses extremely well. In addition, I absolutely love hearing the names of the yoga poses in Sanskrit! I would recommend her as a fabulous yoga teacher without hesitation."
