Sunday June 25th 

1 - 3:30pm

Drawing Your Power

An art workshop that reconnects women and non-binary persons to their sense of purpose, belonging and their true selves through using their own creativity.


Through a safe and inviting space, we draw for the experience of it with no expectation of the outcome. So instead of trying to make a nice picture that looks like something, we come to the paper with an open mind and draw whatever comes up. 


This is not an art class and no experience is needed.

Instead, think of it as a practice that brings healing awareness to the mind and body.

This workshop takes

beginners and those out of

practice through the basics of asana (Postures) and pranayama (Breathing techniques) to prepare students for public classes. This is a great way to get familiar with movements and verbiage

"Samastah has helped me to look

inward and really see myself with grace and

compassion. It is where I have received support, encouragement, and guidance to continue to

look at myself, and my life, while finding ways to love and accept myself – all of me – just as I am. "

Dana Sladowski

"I would give this studio 10 stars if I had the option, Maura & Joseph are absolutely wonderful to practice with & learn from! I started the yogic development & embodiment course about 3 months ago & have also been taking the yin & hatha classes, all of which have far exceeded my expectations! The amount of healing & growth I've had since I started here is amazing & I absolutely recommend practicing here."

Cassie Leger

"This space is a total gem. If your heart is seeking beauty and belonging, give Samastah a try. Maura and Joseph are gifted teachers who craft their classes to meet the needs of the students who are present. Strongly recommend for postpartum healing. Oh and they sing to you too! Maura has a voice like a bell."


"One of the very best yoga studios I have ever been to. Every time I have practiced here, it has been a great workout, and a true mind exercise. Joseph has the gift! Really a wonderful leader.
The studio is less of a modern work out yoga gym, and more of a traditional eastern/spiritual yoga center"
