"An abundance of love, light, and magic!"

So much better than I could've wished. It was such an open, loving, supportive community! I was welcomed with open arms and made relationships that I'll never forget! I absolutely loved all the classes and instructors; so much variety! I took more from Samma Karuna than i ever could've imagined, I hope to have the chance the revisit.

"A full experience "

If youre looking for a full reset go to That place. This is much more than a yoga retreat! This is also about your mind, how to release deep emotions and feel safe and happy. People are nice with you and if you do the classes you gonna feel better. For me 2 weeks minimum

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 have just spent an amazing 6 weeks volunteering and being apart of the Samma Karuna family. It really is a special place, with the beautiful energy of Ishi, Darina and all the other staff and volunteers it's a welcoming and excepting place for everybody to come. I would highly recommend spending some time here, not only because of the wonderful people but also for the varied program they offer. Here is a place to love, heal and be excepted.
