Agama Yoga does not provide accommodation, but offers several trusted recommendations, and help with booking.

Approximate prices for bungalow accommodation

A budget price bungalow with attached bathroom may cost around 6,000 to 8,000 THB per month. Budget bungalows are usually older, may not have hot water and may not have a kitchen. Medium price bungalows, which generally include hot water, tiled floors, kitchen, and air-conditioning, may start from around 8,000 to 14,000 THB per month. High price bungalows start from around 14,000 THB per month, and would normally be a much larger and more luxurious bungalow located in a prime location such as beachfront.

The Thais are constantly building new accommodation near Agama Yogas campus, although more and more students are joining Agama yoga annually. However, the abundance of new construction probably helps to keep rent down and increases your options of finding something suitable.

Recommended resort

Ananda Wellness Resort was previously the host of Agama Yoga first level intensive yoga course and so is very yogi-friendly. Ananda offers Agama Yoga students a 30% discount off its official rates, with additional discounts for longer-term stays or for accommodation, in conjunction with cleansing programs. Ananda offers detoxification cleanses using the herbal products of Arise and Shine, in three-day, seven-day or 11-day formats. It is a newer, yogi resort with herbal sauna, natural (un-chlorinated) pool, massage therapists on call, internet and many other services, including free wireless internet for room guests.

Other accommodation on Koh Phangan

The areas close to Agama Yoga center are Ao Hin Kong, Srithanu (sometimes spelled Sri Thanu or Seethanu, depending on the source) and Haad Chao Phao. There are a number of websites through, which resorts and rental bungalows can be booked. A locally run option is Phangan Rentals, and another option is Phangan Accomodation.

Phangan Resorts provides a detailed description of accommodation to be found on Koh Phangan, though this is focused more on resort style accommodation and not long-term bungalows. Koh Phangan Thailand also has information on resort style accommodation. You can also try Travelfish, as well, which offers an overview of some of the bungalow resorts along the side of the island. For some you may do online booking, although this may be a more expensive option than showing up in person.

The Agama teaching training course (ATTC) is an excellent platform to expand upon existing practice and knowledge, to learn new and interesting ideas, and to help support and guide oneself and others along the yogic path.

Agama Yoga style

Most Yoga schools and styles focus on the physical part of Yoga, looking to increase flexibility, to detox the body, to release stress and to recharge. Agama goes far beyond the physical components of Yoga. In the Agama practice, postures are only the first step. The teachings and courses help students go deeper into the understanding of the source of emotions, explore the mind and its abilities of perception and discernment, and learn to govern energy in the body.

Agama has a strong and all-encompassing understanding of how energy works, and utilizes the Chakra system - the seven governing energy centers of our being, as a map to navigate through this world. Chakras enable us to achieve a state of inner balance and harmony, access amazing powers, and reach mystical experiences and deep states of consciousness.

Students have a rare opportunity to learn and practice forgotten, sacred teachings and techniques from the east. This school integrates authentic India and Tibet wisdom with a Western mindset. Agama believes that there should be a bridge between spirituality and rational thinking. Classes are taught in a modern and easy-to-understand way, while keeping the essence and integrity of the ancient teachings.

    "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."

    "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!"

    " 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."

    " 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."

    " 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!"

    " 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."

    " 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."

    " 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! "
