Samma Karuna is a special place. You have the opportunity to learn and try many different kinds of meditation which are led professionally. The location is beautiful and so is the owner, Ishi. I went through a hard time on Koh Phangan and even though I hardly knew the owner, Ishi gave me the support I needed by offering an ear and advice. I wasn't truly able to express my gratitude at the time, so big thank you to you Ishi. You are wise, humble and have an open heart. Yours truly, Alexander Field

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 the most magical place on Earth. You plan to stay a week, and you're likely going to [want to] stay much longer. I'll be back again for a MUCH longer stay.

I had the genuine pleasure of attending Samma Karuna for several months, and I am so grateful to the universe for bringing me into contact with this magical center of love!!! Samma Karuna is so much more than a place where people do yoga, and can explore a wide variety of meditations, wisdom sessions, tantra, and many many other heart opening workshops.... I felt this place has been truly enchanted by the love and good will poured into it by the creators, teachers, student, and volunteers alike... Unfortunately, there are no words to describe some things, you just have to experience it for yourself!! So If you are thinking about spending some time here, all i can say to you is to follow your heart..... and do it! 🙂

I am a big fan of the kundalini yoga at samma karuna - tought by the two beautiful souls jewels and alex. Always challenging but very much rewarding at the same time I felt a deeper connection to my true self and in general more receptive for the beauty of life <3 Thank you!

I"ve been volunteering at Samma Karuna for one month and loved it so much that I returned for another 4 weeks. Samma Karuna is a truly loving space full of genuine people. It offers everything from Yoga to Osho Meditations and Cuddling Groups. Being part of the community was more than healing and a life changing experience. Anyone who is looking for love light and peace Samma Karuna is the place for you!

Get a deeper understanding on how to align yourself in every pose for a safe and effective practice. Protect your joints, balance strength and flexibility and learn how to correct habits. This workshop is oriented to yoga teachers and experienced practitioners.
The Yoga Fundamentals Workshop is geared for people who are either starting out in their yoga practice or for those would like to revisit and clarify basic alignment principles.
Through demonstration, discussion and experiential movement, the workshop will empower you with key understandings and information on how to help keep your body safe – whether you are practicing in a class or on your own.
The safety and positioning of three key areas of the body will be examined in relation to yoga postures: the shoulders, the lower back and the knees. Correct alignment of these areas will be explored in relationship to building an awareness of core strength and stability.
When asanas (yoga postures) are practiced with awareness and knowledge of healthy alignment, you will find greater comfort and ease in the body. Proper alignment is essential to avoid the risks of injury and to establish a solid foundation on which a practice can grow.
Once the body feels taken care of and is not risking injury, we are also more available to explore the benefits of subtler practices such as pranayama (yogic breathing) and meditation.
