Very nice �� frist time I go .woooooow amazing
It's a magic-place right on the beach, the real paradise!
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
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! 🙂
I completed my yoga teacher training here in February this year. Beautiful place in a fabulous location on the beach and wonderful trainers. Thank you for this great experience : )
I don't know where samma karuna located but someone says that is special place.I think that may be holy place lastly I like to know about this greate place.
Such a wonderful centre, a family, a home away from home to discover, experience and enjoy your true and highest self
Amazing Yoga School! The place that gives you wings.
I have just completed a month of volunteering at Samma Karuna Awakening and Healing Centre, and I wish I could stay longer. This has truly been a transformative experience. Surrounded by wonderful open-minded people, immersed in love and wisdom I found myself in an environment where growth comes naturally through daily yoga and meditation practice. There is a variety of classes to choose from to work on your mind, body and spirit, and all this in a friendly supportive atmosphere. Truly wonderful place. Thank you, beautiful family.
Absolutely fabulous yoga retreat and incredible team of people working at Samma Karuna 🙂
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.
Love this place!! Very welcoming with wonderful people and great energy all around. Spent many hours there and hope to spend many more <3
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!
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.
A & H Program is amazing. So much inspiration to me as an absolute beginner in kind of such experiences. Very unique place with amazing classes, teachers & people. I only stayed for 8 intensive, mind opening, funny & inspiring days. Shared with other beautiful people or just with myself. Thx a lot for everything. Namaste.
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.
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.
