get to know - Samantha

Hello Friends! My name is Samantha Louise Rocco. I went to Erie community college for my Associates degree in Business Administration and I am currently attending the New York Institute of Massage to become a Massage Therapist. I graduate on 10/5/17!!!!! I have been a Reiki Practitioner since I was 17 years old when I was attuned to the first level of Reiki and now at age 21 I have been attuned to the third level of Reiki, Master-Teacher. Throughout the years I have taken several classes in mediumship, intuitive development, spiritualism, meditation, etc. I have been part of the Lily Dale Spiritualist Church for 3 years and work as a Spiritual Healer there. In the next couple years I plan to attend the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine to become a certified Herbalist. One day I hope to open a holistic retreat center to give people a wide range of alternative treatments to balance mind, body, and spirit. My entire life I have been very active with sports, running, weight training, and for the past 3 years yoga has been part of my life. I believe my true purpose in life is to make others feel better. It brings me joy and peace of mind when I can help relieve someone’s stresses or the discomforts in their lives. Even seeing them simply smile is a step in a positive direction!

            Yoga is a place of peace. A place for me to find myself, look inward and discover the missing pieces. Yoga challenges me and always has me reaching for more. Yoga is not only about strength or balance; it is about seeing past the mundane and connecting with a higher energy force that radiates through every one of us. It empowers us to grow, helps us see clearly, and help us focus on what is truly important. I AM YOGA is a gift; it is a studio full of happiness and positive people that are looking to spread only love and awareness. I AM YOGA is a beautiful community of people who I am so blessed to be a part of. Each and every one of you is inspiring and shines in your own light. Thank you for showing me I AM YOGA!
