Quamay Sams, E-RYT 500, is a New York City-based yoga instructor with a profound passion for the teachings of the practice. Using the magic of this discipline to help aid his mental health and developmental trauma, his mission is to engage individuals in the study of the self to heal trauma, bring awareness to patterning, and encourage overall development of the body and mind through movement.
Striving to create a balance between movement and the mindfulness of spiritual meditation, Quamay began teaching in his home of NYC. His journey has led him to manage studios, lead retreats, and cultivate teacher training at studios across the country. Following his passion for learning, he moved to the Bay Area in 2018 to pursue further education with his primary teacher Jason Crandell. Pulling from his own deep anatomical influence, Quamay shares his love of yoga in class through skillful sequencing and genuine mindfulness.
