A MESSAGE FROM SAM

Sam Grout Founder of Yoga Fun Day Hi I am Sam the Founder of Yoga Fun Day, The YogaShape Method and The SMART System.  I am delighted that you are here and look forward to meeting you at one of my upcoming festivals, retreats or workshops.  I am originally from the State of Vermont and a graduate of  the University of Vermont.  My background is in technology, startups, wellness, yoga and luxury historic properties.  I have been teaching yoga for over 20 years, owned and operated my own studio, inn  and spa, worked for Wanderlust Festivals, I was Featured in Yoga Journal for my high end women’s retreats and all inclusive pamper me weekends on “Fly Fishing and Yoga”, “Kayaking and Yoga” and more. I was formerly the Spa Director at the Hotel Del Coronado and have extensive experience with Rock Resorts and Vail Resorts as a senior leader.  I am a licensed massage therapist, certified yoga teacher, clinical aesthetician, speaker, techie and most of all yogi!  I currently live in Melbourne, FL with my toy poodle Bear and work in technology.

” I am on a mission to bring yoga to all, fight the obesity epidemic and build strong communities.  I want to get people to move their bodies.    I am on a quest to get people to  unplug & unwind, take a break from the green screen, get outside, have fun and most importantly start an adventure.  It is a fact that too much screen time re-wires your brain.  Far too many of us sit 8-10 hours a day behind a computer.  Sadly I do as well as I am a women in tech working as a Senior Scrum Master and Project Leader.  Our bodies were meant to move.  Use it or lose it!

 

I created Yoga Fun Day while living in working in Silicon Valley mainly for people in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) as I saw far too many people in my signature YogaShape Method classes and fellow co-workers with low back pain, diabetes, horrible posture and not to mention all kinds of aches and pains from sitting all day.  Statistics are that sitting all day is worse for our bodies than smoking, alcohol or any other substance abuse.     Thus, my personal goal is to get as many folks as I can to get off their computers for at least one day and take the first step towards improving their health.  Take a break from the green screen, cell phone and computers and explore mother earth!  Discover the joy of yoga, movement,  flow arts and dance in a safe and fun environment. Something magical happens when we go into the great outdoors, dip our toes in the ocean or spend time around trees and the woods.  I  want to help you connect with nature. Get outside!  Have Fun! Get Fit!”  – Sam Founder of Yoga Fun Day
