“With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate and the wisdom to be humble.” Courage is the foundation of integrity” Keshavan Nair. “Kori and the Santosha Society team, you inspire me to keep searching for my dreams and working with love to make them happen. It was a pleasure to share waves, talks, yoga and memories with such amazing human beings! I really feel grateful for all. Thank you for all! Seriously you legends!”
“How to put it in words… I feel centered, I take peace and harmony with me. I barely ever have felt so welcome. This bunch of travelers full of awesomeness made me feel so good. As far as the yoga, OMG that was the best I have ever had. Going through different styles is just great. It was so good for me. I learned a lot and I take home so many new things. Perfect!”
“Beautiful experience. I am so glad and thankful to have been able to particilate in this amazing week with you all. I will do my best to keep the serenity and peacefulness that I gained here. I loved the morning meditations as well as the restorative and yin yoga after surfing. It really helped to release all the soreness. I loved everything actually. Thank you Kori for your classes and your nice calm way to guide us.”
My first yoga retreat and a wonderful experience. I learned so much from the experienced yoga teachers and enjoyed the familiar atmosphere in the group of beginners and advanced yoga people. The stunning scenery of our accommodation made it even more special and a real escape of our daily lives. I got inspired so much from the amazing people around. The double room was luxurious and wonderful. Very comfortable beds and good air conditioning. The food was great. I love that it was all local and cooked by locals. With fresh ingredients and a clean kitchen in combination with the expertise of the chef.
I had no expectations when coming to the retreat, but I am definitely leaving with a heartful of energy, inspiration, and love for all the people I met here. I am really thankful for the organizer, Kori to bring us all together as such an amazing place.
While in Sri Lanka I gained new friends, a taste of Sri Lanka and appreciation for lady slide takeovers. I loved the outdoor shower and spacious room. The mosquito nets were a white girls’s best friend and the cool beautiful rooms provided for a great nights sleep. I have felt so well-rested here. I loved the healthy and vegetarian food options at all meals. There was something for everyone with lots of local flare. Such good fruit, curries and soups. My only problem was that the surf was too fun to practice and learn from you talented ladies about yoga. Some highlights of the retreat are the curry buffet in Weligama, the waves right out front, the great food and the feeling of being free yet cared for if we needed anything.
I rose and fell each night to the gentle sounds of the sea. Each day felt like sailing smooth, refreshing and with new discoveries on the horizon. I can’t wait to attend more of your retreats.
This week I had my first surfing experience, loved the yoga and learned new things. I was inspired by the others. The accommodation is really nice. I liked the different styles and teachers. And I like to see and feel when somebody is totally in love with what they are doing. My favorite cultural experience was visiting the temple and walking around the area. It was a pleasure having the time here. Thank you for all attention and everything.

Beautiful Experience. Trip I will never forget. Most beautiful beaches. Kind sweet Locals. Whole experience very well done. Yoga was great new experience for Jason. The yin yoga was so chill. The room was beautiful and clean. Breakfast and dinner were awesome, lots of fresh fruit for breakfast which was a super bonus and dinner was always new and tasty. Teachers gave a great introduction.
Stockholm, Sweden. (Event Coordinator at Spotify) “Kori is not just an amazing an pedagogic yoga teacher that lets you follow your own pace at the same time as she helps you take your yoga to the next level, she is also a rad human being that will crack you up and make you cry from laughter.”

I have always wanted to go on a yoga retreat, however I felt intimidated since I am not a professional instructor. On a request from a dear friend, I took the plunge and experienced an amazing week long yoga-meditation filled adventure in Sri Lanka with Kori. She welcomed each of us with open arms, patience, and one on one attention. I elevated my basic yoga moves with breath, learned new poses, and practiced focused meditation. My favorite part…yoga on the beach! Thank you, Kori for cherished memories.
UK (school teacher/ seasonal chef) ~ Kori Hahn’s approach to her teaching and the people she invites to join her leaves you feeling like you belong to a big family. She’s incredibly down to earth and her “live and let live” approach to life leaves you feeling that yoga is not only cleansing, purifying and peaceful but she’s a great believer in not taking yourself too seriously. I would thoroughly recommend any opportunity that comes your way to work with Kori….not only will you come away feeling that you’ve made a new soulmate for life but her passion for her teaching and experience is truly impressive and totally infectuous.
Patagonia, Chile (biology teacher/ yoga teacher) ~ I met Kori in Tushita Meditation Center, McLeod Ganj India, where Kori was the daily yoga teacher. I loved Kori’s yoga class on the rooftop terrace every afternoon!! Despite a constant distraction of monkeys, she explained and adjusted the asanas while creating an atmosphere for personal development . I hope to practice with her again, maybe here in Chile?
Houston, Texas (office manager) ~ In an era when there is so much need for grounding, we are blessed to have teachers such as Kori Hahn among us. She shares the wisdom of traditional practices with her travel and life experiences. She applies the practical application of yoga to our daily lives. She is a wonderful spirit to have in your presence.
Canggu, Bali (school teacher) ~ I can’t thank you enough. You are awesome! A fabulous class and invigorating experience with such an incredible back drop xxx
Canggu, Bali (full time mother and teacher) ~ The yin yoga class on the beach today was beautiful. Thank you so much for welcoming me AND Vana, it was such a beautiful experience to share yoga with my beautiful baby in such a beautiful spot lead by such a beautiful person x x x
“Body and mind escape! It was a wonderful week, full on new friends charged with smiles, joyful waves search and rides, delicious food and serenity moments. It was a dream! It was all set perfect! a dreamy escape on the perfect scenario with wonderful people. Wish it lasted longer! I found moments of peace and serenity everywhere, specially looking at those coconut trees skies from the shala. The tuck tuck pace was the best to capture smiles, smells and spots to stop. I enjoyed the temples, the ayurvedic shop and Horseshoe Bay. Definitely I am coming back to explore further places! Take me back! Waking up to the sounds of the waves and the silhouettes of palm trees was a dream. Sharing fun times delicious meals with a bunch of beautiful girls was inspiring. Searching for waves on a tuk-tuk was twice the fun. Thanks from the bottom of my heart to Kori for creating the perfect retreat”
