About Agama Yoga Center
Agama – “The world’s biggest tantric yoga school” (The Guardian)
On the island of Koh Phangan in Southern Thailand is a destination for your soul
For many people, Agama Yoga has been the fulfillment of a long-awaited dream. For long decades now – and maybe even since centuries in the West – people of rational orientation have waited for a scientific presentation of metaphysical and spiritual truths, yet which should not lose its mysterious, magical and sacred flavor. Many seekers have dreamt about a system of practice and evolution that should be at the same time clear, effective, goal-oriented and rational, and also truly spiritual, transcendent in its aspirations, enlightening and compassionate. For such people the teachings given by Agama Yoga are exactly the right combination.
“Agama is an authentic tantric path. Agama is the path of the agamas (of the tantric texts) of the tantric tradition from India and Tibet. Today, there are very few places in the world, in where this kind of yoga, this kind of practice, this kind of knowledge is being preserved and Agama Yoga have been given the responsibility, the stewardship of preserving these things.
So, Agama Yoga is a spiritual path from A to Z and it has, on one hand, the main trunk of the tree, which goes with the levels and everything from Muladhara to Ajna and Sahasrara, to the higher Chakras, to the states of Samadhi and to the higher states of consciousness, but of course we are aware that a very limited number of people in this world have that kind of aspiration and have that kind of longing and then the tree of Agama contains many other gifts.
There are things about healing and things about improving daily life. There are things that relate to cleansing your psychological blockages, things about having a much better sex life, there are about a hundred other things, which address the body, the energy, the emotions, and the mind, which Agama does address collaterally.
They do happen in Agama, anyway, as byproducts of Yoga, as byproducts of your spiritual practice and we have many, many people, who are in Agama precisely because of those collaterals.
For us, we see only the vertical dimension, you know, the big picture. But besides that it is like a tree which is loaded with a lot of gifts on all the branches and therefore, there are many, many collateral things that people can get from Agama and it starts with a simple thing, which is so very important such as health, body, energy and similar things.
We aim much higher than that, way beyond that. But that’s not to be denied or neglected. It’s still very important.”
-Swami Vivekananda Saraswati on Agama Yoga

Agama Yoga Center Reviews
One of the oldest, biggest and probably the best school of yoga in Ko Phangan. I returned after 8 years and took the course of Hata yoga level two and also a workshop of tantra. The school continues to impress me by combining traditional Indian yoga with a modern way to teach and learn. All the topics are well explained and documented by professional yoga teachers from all over the world including India. The teachers are very competent and devoted. The environment is warm and cozy and makes you feel very comfortable. You find everything there including a vegetarian restaurant, a library, shop, 4 big pavilions for yoga classes and nice people. I will always return with great pleasure there
Koh Phangan, Thailand
Amazing teaching. I did level 1 intensive program of traditional hatha yoga. Theory, philosophy, practice... everything was high quality. The teachers are exceptional, each one specialized in a different subject which makes the teaching so rich. Attentive, available, and very open-minded, they push you to ask every questions that may come to mind and they will happily answer it and also encourage you to make your own observations and experiments. I met amazing people there during level 1 intensive program and I cannot wait to be back for level 2 ????
Koh Phangan, Thailand
A spiritual diamond with a profound understanding in Yoga and general the nature of reality. Knowledgeable teachers, beautifully inspiring. Powerful, life changing teachings and a Swami with a spiritual verticality and a immeasurable clarity. A harmonious environment for spiritual seekers from every tradition and background.
Koh Phangan, Thailand
I have been attending Agama for five years. I am a Yoga teacher, a Reiki Master and an astrologer. I received very important and necessary teachings for my profession. I attended the Tantra courses in these years (2015-2019), Yoga and Psychology, Metaphysics, Art of Diyng, Astrology and the first 3 levels of Hatha Yoga. Both me and the people who came with me to attend the courses found themselves very well. The campus is well equipped, the Masters and teachers are very well prepared and I have learned many lessons that I did not have in Italy. It is truly a special school. I highly recommend it.
Koh Phangan, Thailand
Agama is truly amazing. The teachers are so knowledgeable, skilled and genuinely dedicated to ensuring the development of their students’ path that it’s quite impossible to leave one of their courses with anything but an open heart and mind. I took three tantra courses and wish I could have taken more. I would and constantly do recommend going Agama to anyone who is interested in actually evolving and furthering their spirituality, yogic and tantric knowledge and more importantly themselves as a whole. You’ll leave the school in a whole lot better shape (physical, mental, spiritual) than you were when you walked in.
