Siem Reap Yoga
Navutu Dreams Resort & Wellness Retreat is thrilled to introduce the new name of its Siem Reap yoga studio to the Siem Reap community – Samadhi Yoga by Navutu Dreams. “Samadhi” [suh-mah-dee] comes from a sanskrit term which means “the highest stage in yoga & meditation” in which a person experiences oneness with the universe. At Samadhi Yoga, our goal is to honor the science of yoga, to share the practice and help empower people to breathe, relax, heal and transform.
Come to Navutu Dreams and try a Siem Reap Yoga Class or a Healing Session with one of these friendly faces who are steeped in experience and tradition. Navutu Dreams introduces its shiny, new Samadhi Yoga Team!

Maria appreciates adversity when a car crash at 17 fractured her spine, but a daily yoga practice brought amazing healing to body and mind. Maria qualified in India in Ashtanga and Hatha and has taught retreats, resorts, gyms, and privately.
Maria’s understanding of the varied abilities in a class adds to a modern, clear approach to postures, breath and meditation. You will find Maria leading the Ashtanga classes with a modern twist, she ensures the classes are inclusive to all levels with a dash of comedy – the quickest way to enlightenment is laughter after all!
Melissa’s understanding of the depth and benefits of yoga have assisted her to become more present, as well as soothe her imaginative (sometimes over-stimulated!) mind in her cherished daily practice. This depth shows in her classes which always have an emotional or energetic theme, Melissa combines an intention with each practice. You will find her teaching Vinyasa and Hatha on the schedule, ranging from slower paced classes to faster flows.
Melissa’s belief that yoga really is for everyone, her favourite part of teaching is seeing the joy of a student achieving a pose they never thought possible!
Dorka has had a passion for moving arts since childhood, from Hungarian folk dance and modern dance to pilates, she gained a scholarship to volunteer in Mysore (India) where she gained her qualification and could combine her passions of movement, helping others and different cultures.
In Dorka’s personal practice, she values the silence, being patient and tolerant with herself. You will find her on the schedule teaching Vinyasa and Hatha. She creates holistic, grounding classes which include Asana, breathing and meditation, with plenty of adjustments. One of Dorka’s favourite memories is teaching kids living in the slums of South India, and seeing the loud, energetic kids laying in a calm relaxation after practice. That is the power of yoga!
