Welcome to Agama Yoga!

Our purpose at Agama Yoga is to offer clear and inspiring guidance to spiritual aspirants wishing to reach the highest goal of Yoga and spirituality: Enlightenment.

Agama has teachers and centers around the world - find an Agama center or teacher near you.


New Students:
Every new student to Agama Yoga starts with the 'First Level Intensive Yoga Course'. This is a 4-week program that covers all the basics of Yoga, and introduces you to the Agama Yoga system, which teaches a Tantric form of Yoga that is energy based.  Our system is created in a way that it is perfect for beginners in Yoga, but proves just as beneficial for the experienced Yoga practitioner or teacher.  You will not only learn 20+ Asanas in detail, complete with energy flow awareness and healing benefits; but you will also receive in-depth knowledge about such specialized topics as the Yamas/Niyamas, purification, and The Five Bodies.

Our's is an approach to yoga which is nearly lost today. It relies on energy awareness during the Yoga practice to produce a highly accurate self-understanding of body, mind, and spirit. We also focus on meditation, healing through detox cleanses and purification, exploration of special topics in-depth through immersion workshop courses, teacher training and meditation retreats in Thailand and elsewhere around the world.

Agama wishes to promote Yoga that resembles neither cheapened Hindu mysticism nor fitness-oriented gymnastics. We are interested in a third option: the pure and genuine Yoga discipline. Agama founder Swami Vivekananda Saraswati is one of few Yoga masters today trying to save this path from extinction. Under his leadership we have developed an extensive, five-year curriculum that is both thoroughly spiritual and yet adapted to the Western modern, rational mentality.

Join us for Yoga in Thailand along the beautiful Western shores of our home island, Koh Phangan, where we are reminded of the garden of the original paradise. Here we teach our First Level Intensive Course, advanced course levels, workshops, retreats, and several, annual certified Teacher Training Courses. Agama marks stages in the coursework with competency exams, and exclusively issues degrees upon their successful completion. Our courses are flexibly structured to allow each student to progress through the curriculum at his or her own pace, enabling a complete integration in the individual's daily life.
