Seven reasons why we were awarded best YTTC in Thailand

1) We are a heart school

Samma Karuna school is based on the development of qualities of the heart such as simplicity, love, kindness & compassion representing one of the spiritual hearts of South East Asia.

2) We are a long-term established and Internationally recognized school of yoga

Your will benefit from an extensively developed and holistic curriculum which is a product of years of dedication and love to yoga. Our Yoga Teacher Training is taught by a team of experienced senior yoga teachers, each of them specialized in their own area, rather than a single teacher teaching all subjects.

3) We are non-dogmatic

Our school embraces Yoga, Tantra, Taoist, Buddhist values and modern science research as part of the yoga teacher training course in Thailand (YTTC yogaausbildung), whilst maintaining a non-dogmatic and open minded approach, as foundation pillars of the school.

4) We offer you a space where you can keep coming back and practicing after your certification

Our Yoga Instructor Course offers a free Yoga Internship to teach yoga asanas at our school (optional), for those graduated students who would like to deepen their yoga teaching skills plus gain access to all regular yoga classes in the school for a lifetime. *

5) We provide an intensive yoga teacher training course (Yoga TTC) in a fun, relaxing environment for you to learn

We believe that life is for learning but also for celebrating, therefore in Samma Karuna we provide a fun, relaxing environment where learning & celebration go hand-in-hand.

6) We are also a community and family

Samma Karuna is not just a school, but also a community of friends and family who practice a conscious lifestyle and take care of each other. You can volunteer with us and receive a 20% discount: By volunteering with us for an extra month you are entitled to a 20% discount on the course price.

7) We have a beautiful space with 3 of our 4 halls right by the beach

We have a beautiful yoga campus of 7000m2 by the beach for our Yoga Instructor Course (Yoga TTC), with onsite accommodation and facilities that allows you to retreat during your yoga teacher training course (Yoga TTC).
