Sam Rice, E-RYT 500, is known for her diligent and detailed alignment instructions, that are delivered with great skill, passion, and humor, offering students the opportunity to find renewed depth in practice. One of the reasons that Sam continues to practice is that it requires her to step into the field of self study and reflection over and over again. Sam believes that facing all the parts of ourselves is challenging and humbling, but will ultimately lead to freedom and living a more authentic and integrated life. A life of practice also offers an opportunity to practice self-love and compassion. It is an everyday practice. Sam has met many amazing souls along the path of practice and their willingness to step in has been one of the most encouraging and inspiring reasons to stay the course.
Sam has been teaching since 2007. Sam primarily studies with Christina Sell. Sam also studies and co-teaches with Darren Rhodes, founder of yogahour®. Sam Rice designed the yogahour 200-hour Teacher Training curriculum that is used throughout studios internationally and nationwide. Sam Rice also leads 300-hour Advanced Teacher Trainings. She teaches as a guest teacher in numerous other 200-hour and 300-hour teacher trainings.
Sam resides in Tucson, Arizona with her wife Rachel King, Owl the cat, Puma the cat, and Tortuga the desert tortoise. Sam believes that one of the most healing things for the soul is time in nature, especially submerging oneself in water. She also believes one of the most valuable things in life is laughter and good company.
