About us

RYT 500

E-RYT 200

Co founder of Samma Karuna

Founder of RadiateLove retreats


Coming from a small village in the Czech Republic, Darina had little chance to travel the world and help people through exercise, two passions she now gratefully enjoys. Her persistence and determination paid off when she left her country at 18 to pursue a career in the UK. There, she completed fitness trainings while venturing into the yoga world, bringing new opportunities and synchronicities.
Unfortunately, overtraining in her own practice led to injuries and burnout. This is when yoga & meditation saved her life. She sold everything and moved to Asia to continue studying yoga and the art of balanced life.
Darina brought her creative dedication and eye for detail to Thailand, empowering her to help establish Samma Karuna – Awakening and Healing School, one of the leading healing centres in Thailand.
Yoga as a therapy to release tension & anxiety is Darina’s biggest focus. She continues to study and explore methodologies, mainly under the guidance of world-reknowned osteopath and integrative cranio-sacral therapist, Oren Dotan.
Her love of travel has taken her across Asia and India for further study of yoga and philosophy.
These days, Darina teaches yoga teacher trainings primarily in Thailand and organizes workshops and retreats, although her main passion is working with people individually.
Through Yoga, Tantra, coaching & other tools, Darina helps people to fall in love with life again and pursue their dreams with renewed energy.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
