Paul Dallaghan-Founder and Senior Teacher, Samahita Retreat

Paul is a senior teacher of Pranayama, Asana and the meditative art and science of Yoga. He has been a dedicated student since the late 1990s of both Sri O.P.Tiwari, one of the few remaining classical yogis and masters of Pranayama, and the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in ashtanga vinyasa. Both of these great teachers have personally certified Paul in these practices, a unique position as the only one to receive this double honor. Paul continues with Mantra practice from the yoga lineage and meditative approaches, influenced by the Thai Forest tradition. This combination of practice and study through dedication and devotion has helped him gain some understanding of practice and to apply this appropriately in Asana, Pranayama, Mantra recitation and Meditation for the different level of students he has the privilege to share the teaching with. He continues his studies in health, philosophy, anatomy and physiology. Paul is also conducting PhD research on the yoga practices at Emory University in Atlanta, USA. One of his main gifts is to be able to relate the teachings in a very down-to-earth way for the modern seeker. He does not take life or yoga too seriously and as a result the discussions and philosophical sessions are lively and humorous, helping to explain the meaning behind the practices and philosophy.

Paul is the happy father of two lovely boys and the founder of Centered Yoga and Samahita Retreat.

Edo Kahn and Jo Mall

Edo and Jo met in Bali at a yoga retreat and first connected through Kirtan. It was this sweet soul music that sparked a recognition of the eternal in each other. A vision was born in that moment that some day they would walk the path together, sharing the love of song and spirituality. Since then, magical adventures of music, yoga and seva (humanitarian service) have ensued.

“Through twists and turns over mountains and into deep ravines, we travel with the guidance and love of divine blessings, wonderful friends and fellow enchanters. Opening to Truth, as it unravels and unfolds us, connecting us with who we really are.”

Edo and Jo reside half the year in India at Narayani Peedam where they study, lead regular kirtan and yoga events. May to July is spent mostly in Bali where they run yoga retreats, weekly residency at The Yogabarn in Ubud, the Bakthi Yoga component at yoga teacher trainings (link) and Sacred Sound Yoga at the award-winning sacred arts and healing resort, Fivelements.

In Sydney regular places of enchantment include BodyMindLife, Yoga Synergy, Qi Yoga, Manly Yoga, Mangrove Satyananda, Mantra Yoga, Absolute Photography, Yogamoves, and Harmony Centre. Interstate and overseas travel include Byron Spirit Festival, Sydney Spirit, Bodhi Festival, Yoga Om, Samudra in Western Australia; 136.1 Yoga in India. Edo and Jo have toured in Australia with Dave Stringer and internationally in Bali and India partnering with Twee Merrigan, Yoga Arts (Louisa Sear, Lucy Roberts), Emil Wendel, Yogacoach (Mark Breadner).
