Centered Yoga: 20 Years of Teacher Trainings and Unique Expertise

From humble beginnings in New York City in 1999 to its home today at Samahita Retreat on Koh Samui, Thailand, Centered Yoga has continually offered quality, foundation level and advanced yoga teacher trainings for twenty years. Samahita founder, Paul Dallaghan, originally founded Centered Yoga and continues to teach on the majority of the trainings today.

The move to Thailand to set up Samahita Retreat (then Yoga Thailand) in 2003 was inspired by a desire to offer an ideal place for practice, growth and living. Very little yoga existed in Asia at the time -- a stark contrast to today’s booming yoga retreat scene in the region. Paul and his partner had a call to create a space for yoga where people could spend time while benefiting from the beautiful nature, and with high standards of food, hygiene and space for practice. In 2008 the center moved to a quieter, more secluded part of the island on the south of Koh Samui where it still thrives today.

Since its beginning, thousands of students have been certified to the high standards that Centered Yoga trainings offer, far beyond the 200 hour Yoga Alliance requirements. The ethos has always been one of service, care, and quality, just some of the compelling reasons to choose to study at Centered Yoga over other newer trainings offered in the region. Its continued success is largely down to reputation and a focus on high standards that has stood the test of time, even with strong competition on the island and in Thailand and Asia at large in recent years.

Centered Yoga offers three 200-hour trainings, and three to four Advanced trainings every year at Samahita, with a team of highly experienced teachers, and with the full support and care that has gone into the center, the food and the programs. Centered Yoga also has unique expertise in the field of breath regulation and pranayama based on Paul’s pioneering work linking academic scientific research and classic yoga practice under his PhD at Emory University (Atlanta, USA).

After 20 years of leading trainings, Paul offers this advice to those thinking of becoming a yoga teacher:

“Make sure you connect with practice and try to understand what you are doing and why. You will then be more sincere and motivated to keep it up. If it is done regularly going ahead in to the future then you will experience something and have a better understanding of how yoga works, how to do the practice, and in your heart you will feel why it is worth doing. This is then the incredible gift to share as a teacher to others as you continue your own path.”

Samahita Retreat is precisely that place to connect with practice. The center started and grew from pure devotion and dedication to providing a space of support and practice, health of mind and body, that is good for people in their lives, that they can learn and carry home with them. That same interest and motivation clearly still exists today, is behind all that is offered at the center, and supports the growth and evolution of Centered Yoga trainings.
