Samarasa, literally 'same essence', refers to the essential unity of all existence,

the supreme bliss of harmony 



Samarasa Academy offers Embodied Yoga Therapy Education. We offer teacher trainings and courses to

  • Yoga Teachers

  • Healthcare Providers

Our offerings are accessible as:

  • Online Courses (pre-recorded)

  • Hybrid Online Yoga Therapy Teacher Trainings (pre-recorded, live calls, mentoring and supervision)

We believe that any genuine and long-lasting healing can only take place if the chosen therapy activates the self-healing mechanisms of the body. Yoga Therapy provides precisely that: It is a non-invasive, self-empowering, integrative form of healing which looks at each person individually. In order to assess each client and condition accurately thorough training and experience is required.

Our team brings in a diversity of knowledge, with career backgrounds ranging from western medicine and classical homeopathy, to business, innovation & entrepreneurship, and also an overall profound experience and knowledge of the Yogic system.

Through our work we aim to bring you inspiring, meaningful and progressive teachings, as well as complete health, own personal growth and inner well-being.

It is our hope that by passionately and competently offering continued education programs to Yoga teachers, health care professionals and Yoga enthusiasts, a deeply integrative approach to health and healing is propagated. An approach which uses scientific data, includes teachings from western medicine as well as the deep wisdom of the yogic system.


Looking forward to welcoming you soon!

As an international academy for Yoga Therapy to us 'samarasa' means a body and a being which is completely open and in full health allowing the pure essence to radiate through in its entirety; bringing a body full of light. Then ultimately when we go deeper it is a state of complete freedom, of peace and attainment in the realization of the absolute Truth.
