VIKASA is Sanskrit for EVOLution, becoming visible, expanding & shining forth. Add a little LOVE to this, & surrender to the unfolding path of the Vikasa Thailand Yoga & Jiu Jitsu Retreat.
Why EVOLution and Why LOVE? Love starts with you. With how you feel in your body & how your feel in your heart. To be more compassionate with yourself & to listen to your body. And then it expands. EVOLution. Love yourself & you will experience more connection with others. Love the dark & the light. Connect to your heart’s longing & what matters most. Once you have found this connection, surrender to the unfolding path!
My goal is to inspire you to dive deeper into your soul & what you desire to share with this world. What brings you joy? What makes you feel alive? Traveling gets us out of our comfort zone, allows us to experience more presence, connection, freedom & have a fresh perspective. Traveling also cultivates healing & curiosity. We incorporate yoga, mantra, meditation, jiu jitsu, self defense classes & play into our retreats, while savoring nature’s beauty, nourishing our bodies with food full of vitality & allowing ourselves time to relax & renew.
