Paul Dallaghan
CEO & Co-Founder
Samahita International Co., Ltd

Paul Dallaghan is one of the pioneering entrepreneurs in the well-being retreat world, having established Centered Yoga in 1999 in NYC and Samahita Retreat in 2003 in Thailand, leading how yoga, fitness, meditation, and body and mind hacks are incorporated into the hospitality industry. Paul completed his initial academic studies in economics and business but due to an early personal inner experience of meditation, he was driven on a genuine search for meaning and what made sense in his life. His sincere and ongoing role is to teach, write and research to help put out experienced and authentic information on these areas in a world full of confusion and conflicting messages both off and online. 

Paul's expertise with breathwork, body and meditative practices comes from three sources: over 25 years of daily dedicated practice and teaching these techniques; immersion in the original culture through one-on-one direct training in practice and study of ancient texts; doctoral scientific research at a leading US university (Emory) on yoga and breath in terms of stress, health and aging. Paul occupies a unique space to impart genuine teaching and science on these practices, acknowledged by his teacher and lineage (Kuvalayananda) in India as a Teacher-of-teachers and a Master of Breath, identified to carry the tradition (Pranayama). This places him as the only master-level yoga and breath practitioner currently immersed in scientific academic research on breathwork, stress and health.
