Steve Rubin-Yoga Teacher

Steve Rubin’s first step on the path of yoga began in 2001, like many 22 year old Americans, in the gym, starting with the physical body and asana (posture) practice, attending classes regularly while exploring a variety of approaches. After some time exploring, and learning to manage the breath better, he was drawn to spend most of his effort learning through the Ashtanga Vinyasa method. Jumping right in (or through) with both feet his passionate interest, study, lifestyle changes, and steady growth in yoga has literally taken him all over the world (India, Thailand, Israel, Suriname, and throughout some major cities in the US) in both study and then later teaching capacities.

His main teacher Paul Dallaghan,founder of Samahita Retreat he met in 2006 on his first of 6 trips to Asia totaling 20 months of focused study and self discovery. Steve utilized the vast majority of those months under Paul’s direct guidance, and with Paul’s two main teachers: the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois (and grandson Sharath) in Mysore India studying Ashtanga Vinyasa at the source, and with Sri O P Tiwari, head of the Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute in Lonavala India, one of the most recognized and accomplished masters of classical yoga, Pranayama, its practice and meaning.

Continuing to study under Paul and Tiwariji, he’s also spent significant time with a variety of senior certified Ashtanga teachers, Steve Rubin Practicing Yoga

participated in a vast amount of workshops with well known teachers of varying approaches, had transformative experience living on a couple ashrams in India for several months, studying philosophy, Sanskrit, human anatomy, and the human condition. He’s been invited by his teachers to teach at their institutes on multiple occasions and has lectured at large scale international yoga conferences in India and the USA. In the last 3 years, the practice of kirtan (ecstatic chanting), and karma yoga (volunteering time weekly) has taken on great significance in his personal development, particularly in opening the heart.

Of greatest importance, Steve maintains a sincere and dedicated daily yoga practice of pranayama, asana, and meditation as given by his teachers, whom he continues to spend time with a couple times a year. He feels incredibly blessed and grateful to be able to share as he has the good fortune to learn under their close guidance, and continues his rewarding effort in this path and goal, which is yoga.

Steve can easily be found and messaged via his Facebook page for any questions or discussion about the retreat. See more photos and other events by this presenter
