Darina info

Darina’s persistence and determination paid off when she left Czech at age 18 to pursue a career in the UK as a personal fitness training coach. Unfortunately, an exhausting schedule of teaching and personal training led to injuries and burnout, but subsequently led Darina to yoga & meditation – which saved her life. Deciding to follow her new passion, she packed up everything and moved to Asia to continue studying yoga and the art of a balanced life, and is a registered Yoga Alliance 500 Hr Senior Teacher.

With her creative flair and eye for detail, Darina co-established Samma Karuna – Awakening and Healing School, one of the leading yoga and awakening schools in Thailand.

Darina’s main focus is on Yoga as a therapeutic tool for healthy alignment, and the release of tension & anxiety. She continues to study and explore various methodologies, mainly under the guidance of world-renowned osteopath and integrative cranio-sacral therapist, Oren Dotan.

Currently, Darina teaches Yoga Teacher Trainings primarily in Thailand, but also organizes workshops and retreats all over the world – which allows her to indulge her love of travel, and further her studies in Yoga Philosophy and Vedanta.

Through Yoga, Tantra, Reiki, coaching & other healing modalities, Darina is passionate about working one on one, assisting people to fall in love with life again and pursue their dreams with renewed energy and focus.
