Student testimonials

No words can truly describe this beautiful Samma Karuna Breathwork training - because how can you explain magic? All I can say is that if you feel even the slightest calling for this, then please follow your heart and go there. I have just finished a month long journey with the school and have come away with so much more than a certification in breathwork.

The teachers were all incredible and bought a unique teaching that really helped with my healing and self connection. The property on the water is beautiful. Sunsets were a bonus! I can’t wait to come back and next time as a volunteer/teacher. The breathe work was unlike anything I’ve ever done.

I came here for a volunteer experience and I ended up finding a community of people just like me. There is something magical about Samma Karuna. The people, the workshops, the classes, the food and the location. I have attended many classes from breathwork, to yoga, to inner dance which have all been an integral part of my healing journey.

I am not experienced with breath work and the class itself was great and very beginner friendly. I would absolutely recommend the class for anybody who is interested in learning more about breath work. Aravind is a great facilitator and clearly has a lot of knowledge on this topic!

I recently attended the three day breathwork intensive with Zivile. I could not recommend this enough for people who want to dive deep into themselves to unlock our healing potential. Zivile knows exactly what you need, when you need it. I will hopefully be back for the next in the near future. Thanks so much Zivile, your an inspiration 🙏🏽✨❤️

I stayed in Samma for two weeks with the Awakening and Healing program and I had a wonderful time there. I liked the different classes, such as Tetra Breath, Biodevelopement classes, meditation etc. Also the yoga classes are amazing. Even after the two weeks I stayed longer and did one intensive breathwork over 3 days and the BioDev TTC. Thank you for everything Samma, I’m hoping to come back and enjoy more of this amazing place ❤️
