WHO WE ARE
Yoga Kuukan is a traveling studio for Yoga, Qigong and Tai Chi with easy and friendly attitude.
Our basic intentions are improving health, uplifting spirit and quality of life. Getting closer to the real essence and living in peace within our bodies.
Yoga Kuukan was started as a traveling studio, located first in Chiang Mai, Thailand since 2014 for five years. We were teaching thousands of people from all over the world various classes and workshops. Now we are based in Kamakura, Japan and focus mostly on workshops, retreats and private sessions.
We are Maika and Tomer (Toma), international and experienced teachers (taught in Germany, Mexico, Thailand, Japan, Spain and more) and we are happy to share our knowledge and practice with you.
Whether you’re a busy working person or a home worker we’ve got something for you to improve your health and sense of well-being. We can help with specific issues (physical and mental) and support healing or improvement. Beginners are welcome to join our private sessions as well.
Enjoying the practice is important for us! We believe that sense of humor is one of the most important things in life.
We are not interested in acquiring another belief system.
We have learned from many different teachers but we are not following only one specific system, style, guru or master. Instead, we are following our hearts and trusting life experience with honesty and aiming at mastering life.

Tomer is the most helpful, verbally descriptive and down-to-earth yoga teacher I have ever had the pleasure of practicing with. Unlike some other classes (which were good i'm sure, but not as suited to my style) I really felt like I was being supported in my practice, and actually practicing it, rather than following some intricate movements of a teacher and trying to 'do it right'. He teaches with humour and is very supportive.
I also did Chi Gung and Tai Chi with Maika, which was blissful and helped me to re-align to my true self. Maika is one of those kind, caring and beautiful people you come across in life and feel immediately at ease. Her classes taught me so much and inspired my practice forever more.
Maika and Tomar are not just wonderful teachers, they also became good friends, and I love and miss them both very much. I will travel back to Chiang Mai to study with them again.
I also attended the full moon meditation which was a powerful and special evening. They also hold dark moon meditations.
The studio has a simple elegance, with water features and wooden furniture. As soon as you walk into the space you are greeted with some lemon water and a warm smile. They taught me the true meaning of reception. It's a haven of tranquillity.

Zen space and wonderful experience with Maika! Highly recommend this class as it helped me ground into my body and come back to the breath, especially after traveling many hours and feeling “floaty.” Great for all levels and definitely one of the top yoga studios in Chiang Mai. I came here twice and wish I could attend more classes but am leaving Saturday. I will be back here soon! Highly recommend checking it out, also in a great area of CM.

Tomer is hands down the best Yoga teacher I've ever had. He is great with absolute beginners and experts alike. So many other teachers make Yoga so hard for beginning and intermediate students, with Tomer it's effortless and you will feel much better after every class.

Their classes I had attended were my best yoga experiences so far. Very calming, rejuvenating, peaceful and joyful. Loved the sala, loved the teachers, loved the care they demonstrated for each and every person there. Highly recommanded!
