Welcome to Samma Karuna!

We are an International School of Awakening and Healing, and Yoga Retreat Centre in Thailand. We are a mindfulness community, for people who are called to learn to live a happier, more fulfilled and enriched life, based on principles of self-development, acceptance and celebration.

What We Do
The Awakening & Healing Program, Yoga Teacher Training, Bio Development Teacher Training and Detoxification Program are our primary programs. Additionally, festivals, workshops and conscious events for self-development are regularly run at Samma Karuna. Every individual is supported in developing their own action plan to enable them to discover their true self and underlying potential, which in turn helps them live a more enriched life. These action plans are created with support from the community and guidance from the experienced staff.
Our awakening and healing program that runs throughout the year is designed to support you in your own development. Through deep experiential activities, you will learn the tools to find your own truth and path as a cornerstone for a more happy, vital and fulfilled life.

What make us special…


We believe that experiential learning is the best form of learning. Anything that we experience directly tends to have a greater impact on us. Hence, we focus on achieving true wisdom, acquired through our own experience, rather than ‘receiving’ the experiences of a guru or teacher through words or ancient text.
Our sole purpose is to help each and every individual to become who they really want to be. Through self-exploration, everyone can free themselves from the collective consciousness and become their true selves.
Reconnecting people with their inner self and inner wisdom helps them to lead a more prosperous and fulfilling life. We facilitate their journey of self-exploration, rather than giving them prescribed answers or solutions.
A rational mind and a path of experiential learning is the best way to acquire spiritual teachings and be able to sustain them.

  •   Da jeg provde det for mange aar siden var jeg overbevist om at det var prosesser i meg selv som styrte det hele - og det maa det ha vaert - noe annet ville ikke vare logisk. Omtrent som en psykedelisk trip, Er du i stand til aa telle tall du vet du ikke omgaas med til daglig, eller se farger og tenke begreper som er irrasjonelle eller du vet er bare noe tull (?) Da er du muligens paa rett vei.

      A little note to anyone thinking of attending the Samma Karuna School of Awakening and Yoga: DO IT! I did my first yoga TTC in late summer 2014, and loved every minute of every 14hr day. It was one of the most amazing, intense and rewarding experiences I've ever had; emotionally, physically and spiritually. I am highly recommending the entire experience, whether it be a full intense course, a less "full-on" experience, or even just a few yoga or awakening classes. Whatever you decide, Samma Karuna will welcome you with open (and non-dogmatic!) arms. A journey I will never forget, and am already thinking of continuing.... Enjoy! :)

  •   Samma Karuna is beautiful school of wellness & healing arts that all who are seeking excellent classes, nurturing community & the added bonus of personal transformation should go to. I spent the month of March 2015 at their yoga teacher training program & it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Beyond preparing me to teach yoga, I found myself again, made lifelong friends, and my heart feels stronger & more full than ever before. I am eternally grateful for my time at Samma Karuna & can't wait to return again.

  •   I didn't like the attitude of the yoga teacher who taught the Ariel Yoga. American or Canadian man. His manner was not appropriate and not yogi at all. I also met a person who was doing a retreat here and her experience was quite a negative one.
