Be Surrounded by Nature
We are a relaxed establishment where you can unplug and reconnect to something deeper than this external world. We are a yoga retreat with accommodation, not a hotel with some yoga classes.
We believe self-realization and self-love create the best possible version of YOU. Only when you are living from your authentic self and looking after your mind, body, and spirit with self-love that you can unlock your true potential. In order to live optimally and have more energy to do the things you love, you must create a new set of values, beliefs, and attitudes that support the results you really wish to achieve. Of course, a positive attitude is a fundamental key to cultivate if you want an amazing life, however the Vikasa philosophy takes it a few steps further with a holistic healthy lifestyle. Evolution feels amazing. As you start to evolve during your yoga retreat or yoga teacher training in Koh Samui, Thailand, some people around you will suddenly seem to be on a different vibration. You will branch out naturally into new circles. The new people you will start to attract will be healthier and happier people. When you tap into your deeper energy, you’ll unlock a powerful force which is mirrored in those around you. You’ll have a spring in your step with more energy and enthusiasm to live your healthy life the way it was meant to be lived: full of wellness and self-care. Your confidence will rise, your mind will clear, and you’ll feel a deeper sense of self.
Try Our Holistic Lifestyle Experience
The Vikasa lifestyle was created to help you evolve and discover the happiest and healthiest version of you. We’ve developed a powerful set of tools, practices and pillars to help you reap the maximum results on your wellness journey.
Self-transformation is not something that anyone else can do for you. Friends and family may give you advice or encourage you to take a direction that will lead you to happiness, but at the end of the day, it’s your life and no one else’s. This is not to say, however, that this journey has to be a lonely one. When you start making small changes and understanding the effects of your thoughts and environment, you’ll reawaken something deep within you. With that kind of healthy foundation, you start to see what you are truly capable of. When you make small changes to your lifestyle, a new energy will erupt from within you and your health will also become vibrant. Your skin will glow, you’ll feel alive, and you’ll find yourself being more present in the moment.
