Samaa Living 4 Day Yoga Retreat in Montana

With Naader Shagagi and Carolina Cotman

June 19 - 23, 2024

Retreat Theme: The Stages of EGO

During our devoted class time our Samaa Living founder, Naader, will lead us on an exploration through the three aspects of EGO. We will discover our own egoic stage and what determination exists to move through the development of our ego in order to arrive at PEACE, a place in which we find that the world no longer has a jarring effect on us; we are above irritation, and all manner of agitation is removed.

Peace is not something that can be found outside; it is within ourselves, though it is buried under the false ego.”


We also want you to truly experience the benefits of intentional time to relax, restore, and renew body and mind. At our summer retreat you can expect:

  • Easy access to nature and the outdoors – both at our facilities and in our surrounding trails, mountains, rivers, and parks
  • Daily yoga and meditation practice (no experience necessary!) as well as talks, sessions, and guidance based on the retreat’s theme
  • Opportunities for fellowship with others during meals and sessions, as well as solitude and individual contemplation
  • An immersive nature experience in Glacier National Park (weather permitting)
