"This is the first workshop I have done with Sam and was very impressed! I had no idea what to expect from the workshop and it exceeded all expectations. Sam is a great presenter, very clear spoken, great explanations, and with concepts broken down into small bits. She used a lot of examples to help the audience understand concepts. The workshop was the right combination of theory, practical knowledge, and take home information to use immediately. What is really helpful is how humble Sam is. She uses herself as an example that we should not strive for perfection, but we should accept our human fallibility and love who we are regardless of our faults. I felt the workshop feeling not only refreshed but with a renewed sense of purpose. It was perfect for a Spring re-boot!" ~ Karen M.
"Sam's workshop was life changing for me. Ever since Yoga Teacher Training, I have been passionate and eager to learn more about the practice of Ayurveda and how to add it to my holistic lifestyle. The workshop motivated me to add more simple practices to my daily routines based on my specific dosha, and I literally get excited to wake up and do a few of them because of how much they truly positively impact my day. Overall, this is a must take workshop for anyone wanting to learn how to connect more with the flow of the Universe and become more aware of how to create a more wellness-focused lifestyle. THANK YOU SAM!" ~ Emily P.
"Sam's workshop was transformational. She has such great knowledge of Ayurveda, and her teaching style is comfortable and casual. Several practices have been incorporated into my lifestyle and the difference in my body and outlook is noticeable. Thank you, Sam!" ~ Melissa
"Sam’s Ayurvedic Nutrition Workshop far exceeded my expectations. The three hours just flew by and the information shared was well organized, thoroughly researched and truly applicable to our daily lives. Sam is a truly gifted teacher who engages her students, provides detailed yet easily understood explanations, and freely shares her personal experiences. She welcomed us with homemade tea, had a fabulous display of various healing foods, and sent us off with more homemade goodies. As a follow-up, she emailed us recipes, instructions and numerous links to additional resources. Thank you Sam for a truly incredible afternoon." ~ Petra
"On 9/8/18 I attended Sam’s Ayurveda Nutrition workshop in Park City. Her class was very well planned and executed, and in just one afternoon I discovered many useful tips to improve my diet and way of life. For instance, I have started drinking warm herbal tea during the day instead of ice water, and I already feel better hydrated, with improved digestion, and I might even have lost a couple of pounds! It is clear that Sam loves to share her Ayurvedic knowledge with others. I would recommend her classes to all." ~ Jane H.
"I came to Park City with my daughter. We are both yoga teachers, and I a somatic psychotherapist and coach. We were interested in increasing our practical knowledge of Ayurveda and spending some quality time in Park City. We took a 3 hour training presented by Sam on the the natural rhythms of Ayurveda. Sam was engaging, practical, kind and supportive throughout the presentation. She was warm and answered the questions that were presented with such great advice. She sent us home with so many practical tools to use in our lives. I have already shared the list of self care with so many clients! So grateful for YOGA and AYURVEDA and such wonderful teachers like Sam." ~ Jen, Waitsfield, VT
"Since I was a child, I’ve always felt an innate sense that I should try to align myself with the natural elements around me. Attending Sam’s workshop was that moment of illumination when everything I had intuitively felt was supported by a science that has been around 5,000 years. As a teacher myself, Sam’s delivery of information is informative, engaging, welcoming, and inspiring. Even though the workshop was only 3 hours long, I walked away with a solid foundation that has now led me to further study and seeking out others who can help me continue this journey. I credit Sam for this continuing education as she not only orally presented critical information but also recommended texts, websites, and advice on how to delve deeper. Meeting Sam was truly divine intervention. Namaste. ~ Tara M.
"I thoroughly enjoyed Sam's Ayurveda workshop. It was well thought out and laid out in a way that kept her audience alert and enthralled with the material throughout the training. Being a yoga teacher myself, my favorite part of the workshop was when we integrated the doshas into a yoga practice, to more deeply understand them. Thank you for an amazing workshop, Sam!" ~ Colie
"I have such respect for the knowledge and age-old wisdom that Sam imparts to her students in her Ayurvedic
workshops! Food and self care are such elementary medicines for our well being. Sam’s enthusiasm and well organized presentations of the Ayurvedic principles is truly remarkable! She prepared a wonderful e-book, so we did not even need to take notes. Instead I was really able to be present and digest the extensive information provided. Loved the tea and kitchari, delicious- inspired me to come home and cook it! ~ Betsy
"You are a gifted teacher and I am grateful for your wealth of knowledge and experience." ~ Edie
"Sam's Ayurveda Wellness Workshop was fantastic and provided a wealth of information about lifestyle and nutrition considerations by season. Right from the welcome circle to the last yoga segment, Sam kept us totally engaged with her presentation, the display of what foods and spices to consume by season, and her balancing yoga practices. I look forward to participating in more of Sam's workshops. Thanks very much, Sam." ~ Louise G.
"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."
