Meet Samantha Gallentine
“I am an organizer of a Meetup group which I call “The Happiness Group”. My favorite events have been learning to play pickleball, trying paddle boarding, attending a pie tasting, and the group tour of Wyuka Cemetery in 2021.”
In 2013 and in her 40’s, Samantha was training for her first amateur women’s body building competition. It was recommended by the pro athletes that she practice yoga for flexibility and to work smaller muscle groups on her “off” days. Samantha promptly purchased her first yoga DVD from The Dollar Tree for a buck. Slowly tiring of the repetition of watching a recording, the practice was left to the way-side. Several years later, Samantha scheduled a yoga class as a Meetup Group event to find a shared interest, engage in a physical body-movement activity, and as a stress-reduction practice.
In 2020, Samantha completed her 200-hour RYT training at Lincoln Yoga Center under the guidance of Sheila Palmquist of Lincoln, Qigong Certification from Suman Barkhas of Omaha, and Vibration Sound Therapy Practitioner certification and license though the Vibration Sound Association through Jeff Howard of Roca, NE.
After completing yoga teacher training, Samantha found that her mind was still restless with attempts at meditation. It was during this time that she experienced her first Vibration Sound Therapy (VST) on-the-body session. She found that she was able to completely turn inward and settle her thoughts. If you have never tried VST, give it a try and see for yourself what happens for you.
Samantha teaches a monthly Sound Bath Mediation – on the 4th Sunday of the month from 4-5pm. Check under the “Events” tab for more information.
