    The classes are nice and you learn a lot but outside of those classes you can't get any information unless you pay. For instance for music meditation they will not give you the names of the musicians you are listening to but they will ask you to buy a CD. And so on..

    Ah, so now I 'get it'.. and I can do it! I spent 2 days at the health centre doing morning sessions as was told I would be welcome to join the next Level 1 start. The first day is free then you can pay by the day, week or entirety. Very much affordable too. Unfortunately I left it right to the end of my trip but as a recce was an enormous success.

    I've been doing yoga for a decade now and have taken a bunch of classes and courses in different places. I find Agama stands apart from the rest in one significant way: the teachings are comprehensive. Yoga is such a vast field that really is made up of many different kinds of Yoga practices. If you're curious and want to learn all that you can about Yoga then Agama is a really good option. If you're just looking for a place that will teach you asanas (postures) then Agama is not necessarily any better than the other places. One difference about how they teach asanas: you'll have a strong emphasis on focusing on the energy (chakras) behind the asanas and holding the asanas for a long time. If you like flowy type of Yoga this is the exact opposite.

    It was a good experience. the two hours went by very quickly. There was a person who held the course and two people who went around correcting at people's positions. I felt very comfortable.

    Spending 1 week and I had a great time, agama is not fitness studio but is yoga school for body and mind.

    I could only stay for two weeks for the level 1 course, but it was a beautiful experience. Sure, I will came back to do the entire level 1. The lectures are amazing and of course all of the experience that I had.

    Life changing.

    My husband and I did the level 1 yoga course at Agama to find some answers: how to be happy in this crazy western world we live in today. How to cope with difficulties, depression and disappointment, how to find ourselves and to reconnect with what is really essential in life. At Agama we found (inner)peace and tranquility, we learned how to press on the pause button and to see the world and our existance through a different point of view.

    It was a real eye opener and after 1 month we had so many new or renewed goals which we still live by now at home. We do not only cherish the good memories but really live our life with big or small things that we've learned from the teachers, and this every day. We sometimes laugh about being reborn, but actually there is no better way than to describe this experience.

    The hatha yoga was new to us but we really felt good during and afterwards, and I do not only mean physically. The way that Agama introduces the asanas by explaining the theory and guide you through the practice is really high-level, in a way that you really feel and know what you are doing. And not only the asanas, but we got to hear a lot of lectures on yoga, yamas and niyamas, on nutrition and cleansing, etc. Basically you get to know everything to become a better person, with instant results. There is so much more to learn in the following levels, but for now we are very grateful to have had this experience because this was what we really needed, and we can only recommend this highly to everyone who feels like they're a bit lost or who wants to learn the 'real' yoga, not only the 'fitness yoga' we see in the gym. It is worth the money, it is worth your time. I promise!

    Agama is awesome!

    Thank you for the pleasant experience doing my Agama level 1 training, I was so impressed!

    Agama is a great place to learn meditation focused yoga, there is no accommodation on campus but there was plenty nearby when I was there in September. The crowd/community in and around agama are very friendly. You can have a great time and learn as much as you want to about yoga and tantra.

    It's nicknamed "The yoga university" for a reason. Their curriculum is very comprehensive as far as yoga and tantra are concerned. The one-month intensive level 1 is certainly an inspiring and informative course that could benefit anyone, being total neophytes to yoga as well as experienced practitioners. It's definitely worth a try.

    Agama Yoga is an amazing yoga school on the island of Koh Phangan in Thailand. They offer great workshops and one month yoga classes that include the traditional and famous postures of Yoga as well as invaluable lectures on various topics. Their teachings are well researched, well presented and very interesting. I am absolutely amazed by the people who have created this fantastic place.

    I did the 4 weeks yoga training "First Level Intensive". It was a fantastic experience. Very good teachers, nice students, and good place to be. I visit this place every year and love it!

    Spiritual knowledge is everywhere. all you need is to google it. then you sort it out and understand it within a frame of logic. Well agama teaches this structure. the teachings of yoga technology and the philosophy behind it is structured in a way that the western mind grasps the very essence of it. It is a short cut of reaching to a very well organized knowledge of how the universe revolves and woman / man evolves.

    Beautiful experience of self-transformation in a 3 month intensive process to become a Yoga teacher. The knowledge is very good and practical. The tools received are made to improve your life and evolve gradually by building your own daily practice. The effects and benefits have appeared quickly and were rewarding the efforts. I definitely recommend this school for their deep understanding of the tradition of yoga!

    With almost no prior experience in yoga I signed up for the Level 1 Intensive course. It was amazing! The physical bit was a bit hard at the beginning but what motivated me a lot was that I could see the progress I was making from week to week. Mentally it blew my mind, so many new ideas to think about and theories and knowledge.The tantra aspect of this tantric school is optional, you can choose to attend extra workshops on the subject. I followed Tantra 2, which focuses on relationships, and it made me look closely at what I believed is a relationship and gave me new insights for which I am very grateful. I loved every moment at Agama!

    I visited Koh Phanga just for the purpose to take lessons in Agama Yoga. We got to know about the 1. month intensive course from my sister and did it one year before at the same place. We were there with our daughter (5 years). One of us went to Yoga and the other was on the beach with our girl. After a month we swapped. It was so great to combine holidays with intense yoga practice and teachings. The yoga was very deep and the teachers with a lot of knowledge and enthusiasme. We took also the chance to get personal advice from advanced teachers. Besides yoga there is also a holistic health center which works hand in hand with the yoga school. After the first month we came back this year and went on with the next course level and now we do agama yoga at home since then.

    My experience at Agama was nothing short of transformational. When I attended the classes there my partner and I had been away from each other for several months and I was considering our relationship to be finished. Obviously the universe had different things in store for us because we found ourselves eating up the workshop at Agama and really finding a renewed and deeper connection with one another (and beyond!).Since then I have recommended so many couples and others to check out the classes there & each has come back to me and reported similar life-changing results. The instructors are deeply knowledgeable, infinitely caring and approachable to a fault. Every time I think about my experience there I have a little grin to myself because I just imagine how differently things may have played out had I not learned what I did there.I am so profoundly affected by the teachings and so very grateful for the contribution the facilitators are to the conscious community. Blessings, Agama!

    I studied at Agama for 3 years and am very grateful for the valuable knowledge , experienced teachings and friendships I received there. From the Levels, TTC, courses, workshops, retreats and other misc things constantly going on i highly recommend it as a place for spiritual learning and meeting like minded people.

  • a traveller United States

    When I first started TTC in 2015, Level one, I didn't resonate with Agama very well. Mainly, I wasn't enjoying the wording & vibration of the teachers teaching. I felt much disconnection & contradictions in Agama's theology of spiritual paths & the teachings of what role we all play. I was considering leaving. I had already paid for the class and wasn't going to get a refund. I was on the fence about making a decisions. After some events, I decided to follow the rest of the program. Now I am about finished & I can say that the deeper I dove into Agama the more I resonated with the teachings. So my opinion changed and my experience evolve into a blessing. I do now very much enjoy the teachers and I am grateful for Agama. I can foresee the tools I received will be used for the rest of my life. Sincerely Thank you Swami Vivekananda Saraswati. I will carry on supporting you & the Legacy of Agama. Much love & aspiration.

    Great for your mind, the yoga is Hatha yoga so don't expect to leave with that fitness body. Go there with an open mind. I loved it, and would go back again for a few weeks to switch off from reality.

    It was such a blessing to find this place and all the like minded individuals there. The first day free was a great introduction and can't wait to return to take the full program.

    I had the pleasure of going to Agama Yoga in India as a solo trip, right after my 25th birthday. The teachers and students were all so wonderful and I made lasting friendships with people from every walk of life, through all across the world. I certainly would recommend this experience and hope I have the chance to head back at some point! Thanks again!

  • a traveller Denmark

    Agama teach that yoga is not gymnastics. So don't go here if your desire to do yoga is to work on getting in shape or just relaxing. Practical exercises are great, but you should only go here if you want a very spiritual approach to yoga. If you have a scientific background you'll find yourself listening to a lot of bogus, so called "empirical science" which is mainly backed in experiences of individuals or clairvoyants.

    Amazing nurturing and spiritual environment. All the staff were very supportive, kind, caring and thoughtful. Swami gave wonderful informative and insightful lectures on a daily basis. A great place to get fit with fantastic like minded people.

    Agama is a beautiful community of yogic practitioners committed to keeping traditional and authentic yoga practices alive. The leader of the school, Swami Vivekananda Saraswati is a brilliant and inspirational man who has committed his life to Yoga and has been teaching for almost 30 years. I've been to Agama 4 times in the past 5 years - there is something for everyone: intensive workshops, meditation retreats, teacher training programs and even a 5 year program of Yoga for those with a strong aspiration. If you are someone who isn't satisfied with the watered-down Yoga being practiced in most places, Agama is definitely a place you should visit. Be warned - many come for the famous first level intensive course and end up staying for years!

    I stayed at Ananda for a month and completed an 11 day detox and month yoga course at Agama. The detox is definitely challenging in itself but the staff couldn't be more supportive! Nor was amazing and super friendly and helpful reminding you to take your next pills or drink your shake. Villy is super knowledgable and helpful and the facilities were great! The salt water pool is definitely a big positive! I would highly recommend Ananda and I will definitely be back next year for round 2 :).

    I did the 11 day detox program at Ananda and I've have decided that I will be returning at least 3-4 times a year for health holidays. The detox was hard but very much worth it and the herbal sauna was a life saver :).

  • Sazza United Kingdom

    This was a totally fantastic experience and every element of the detox and programme was run to an excellent standard. All the staff are fantastic and I nor is always reminding you what's coming next and when to take what. I was initially nervous as have never done a detox before nut soon put at ease will villys knowledge. Basically I feel reborn and will be back next year to detox again. Thanks to Villy and her fab team and especially Katie too who I called the fairy grandmother as she comes to check in you daily and Nor also for organizing us.
