the meaning of namaste.

Namaste is a Sanskrit expression found in some regions of India used with the intention of honoring another. Etymologically, namaste, is a respectful greeting or salutation (Namah + te means "I bow to you").  It is also used as a casual greeting similar to hello or goodbye.

Our intention for the word (and practice)  is to let it serve as a respectful reminder to honor all whom we meet with sincerity.

meet the founder

Samantha "Sam" Reynolds is the founder of Cafe Namaste™. She's a lifestyle architect, yoga teacher and creative entrepreneur. Sam is passionate about uplifting others through a holistic approach to well-being. Her mission is to help others find a healthy balance and she believes everyone has the potential to thrive.

After living in four countries and visiting over 40+, Sam never imagined that her most significant trip would be the journey inward. Her experiences overseas ultimately led her to study yoga, with the help of her mom who introduced her to Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi and the Bhagavad Gita. Prior to transforming her life, Sam worked in Rwanda at a non-profit, Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village, for orphaned teens and created educational programs in Prague on 20th century European history including Holocaust studies for the University of Miami, her alma mater.

She created the concept of Cafe Namaste initially as a yoga and plant-based brunch experience at a rooftop in downtown Miami to give people a chance to reset and recharge in a holistic way. She wanted to help people feel empowered, inspired and connected beyond the studio class. Sam envisioned a holistic space for wellness, connection and growth. She observed at the very core of being human is the desire for meaningful connections, both inward and outward.

In addition to events and classes, Sam offers social outreach initiatives , Project Namaste, to engage the community in service with local partner non-profits. She is committed to ensuring Cafe Namaste is a holistic brand for personal and societal well-being.
