Recharge At Vikasa Yoga Retreat
The Vikasa lifestyle, as taught in the Recharge program, teaches you how to take better care of your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
Our team of supportive, qualified professionals includes a nutritionist, a naturopath, raw food chefs, health coaches and internationally trained yoga teachers. Your program coach will help you to incorporate the course techniques into your daily life, leaving you prepared to take on a healthier new chapter. Your personal wellness coach will arm you with information to enable you to make better-informed choices to discover what works best for you.
The Vikasa approach nurtures belief in one’s self and emphasizes the importance of a positive mindset to begin and maintain lasting positive change. You may have some bad habits but nothing is hard-wired for life; you can always be the person you want to be and to attract the things you desire most.
In the modern era, prescription drugs are given as a cure-all for general health issues, including managing our moods and energy levels. While we value and appreciate the necessity of conventional healthcare, we also believe that exercise, diet, mindset and a holistic lifestyle can vastly improve our physical, energetic and mental states.
It is important to understand your complex relationship with food and to find a dietary regime that nourishes you. At Vikasa, you will discover just how delicious and satisfying healthy, organic, whole foods can really be. Our wellness coaches will review your previous eating habits and help you to experiment with different types of foods to find a new approach to nourishing yourself. Can you imagine feeling more energized, vibrant, clear – even creative – simply by eating differently? What we eat doesn’t simply affect our weight; it also affects our emotional state and mental health. Like prescription drugs, our food intake has a chemical effect on our mental and physical systems, affecting memory, attention span, and emotions. Developing our awareness is the best way to break addictive habits that may be causing us unnecessary harm.
Yoga to Recharge
Yoga is an integral element to the Recharge program. Whether you are new to yoga or already have experience, our team of experienced yoga instructors will help to educate you on the benefits of yoga and how to develop a practice to support and enhance your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Aside from yoga asana (the yoga poses) you will also learn calming and entering meditation techniques to lower stress and anxiety, as well as effective pranayama techniques (breathing exercises) to bring you into the present moment and reconnect with yourself on a deeper level. The Vikasa Yoga Method isn’t just about practicing yoga on the yoga mat. The insights and wisdom you will gain through these practices can be introduced into your daily life to create a more balanced, fulfilling and happier way of existing.

Recharge The Battery of Your Soul
Balance is the origin of vitality. When we are out of balance, we are burning energy inefficiently. The Recharge program teaches ways to manage stress, create balance and harness the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Through yoga, nutrition and private one-on-one coaching sessions, you’ll effortlessly discover a better way of living.
The personal coaching techniques aim to create an awareness of behavior patterns that may be inhibiting your life and wellbeing. Learn how to gain control nd live in greater harmony through a more positive mindset. In our normal waking state, we can be bombarded with anxiety, bad memories and fear about what the future holds. Discover how to return to the present moment and center yourself to maintain a lower-stress, higher-energy lifestyle. Over the course of just one week, you’ll experience feelings of profound inner peace and recharge your mind, body and soul.
‘Vikasa’ is Sanskrit for becoming visible, expanding and shining forth. Inspired by the notion of personal evolution, Vikasa was created as a safe and inspiring space for everyone to experience the benefits of yoga and wellness. Our open arms policy welcomes all levels and people from all walks of life. Our breathtaking yoga retreat in Koh Samui provides an idyllic setting which will ignite positive change in your own life. More importantly, your time at Vikasa will equip you with a new philosophy and lifestyle to take home and incorporate into your own daily routines. If you are curious about yoga and mindfulness and are searching for a more meaningful, balanced and healthier way of life, the Vikasa Recharge program is for you.
Access a higher state of mind. Tap your intuition and discover a sense of peace and calm within.
The Recharge program is designed to offer you a rejuvenating retreat experience that acts as a springboard for a better way of life. Your private one-to-one coaching sessions will analyze your current lifestyle and routines and help you develop new ones that align with the positive lifestyle that you envision for yourself. Throughout the week you will be introduced to yoga, meditation, pranayama and the concept of food as medicine to help you optimise your wellbeing on a physical, emotional and mental level.
You’ll learn a variety of pranayama breathing exercises as well as simple mediation techniques that can take you beyond the frantic pace of modern life and the busy nature of our mental chatter, to a place of quietude, peace and clarity.
Yoga asana classes will equip you with physical practices that not only help you to develop strength, flexibility, agility and balance, but offer you a robust yogic framework and yogic philosophy that will help you to transfer these positive lessons and benefits into all areas of your life.
Adopting a ‘food as medicine’ approach to eating offers you a way to move beyond cravings and impulses to truly nurture your body with vibrant nutrition that is abundant and mouthwatering, never restrictive or dull. With a healthy approach to diet comes the propensity for greater self care, self worth and self love.

Enjoy The Experience
At Vikasa Yoga Retreat, we have carefully nurtured an environment that facilitates personal evolution and development.
The ocean views, the palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze instill a sense of tranquility. The nourishing diet, the ambiance of the tropics, the sense of community, the private coaching sessions; These allow you to reach a new mindset that you can apply every day for a sense of contentment and peace within yourself.
Processing emotional issues and discarding bad habits can be daunting. Taking time and focusing on one’s own wellbeing – rather than money, career, or family – can feel unfamiliar. Ironically, it can be difficult to relax and justify the time and space needed for personal evolution. However, it’s worth the effort – the benefits of a supportive coach will help you adjust to the Vikasa lifestyle as you recharge your mind body and energy. Self-improvement is not all hard work, in fact it can be quite enjoyable. The Vikasa Bliss Spa sessions included within the Recharge program package will soothe you into a state of bliss with absolutely no effort required!
Feel a sense of achievement as you embrace a healthier lifestyle, and a sense of community with like-minded people on the Vikasa campus.
Arrive to Vikasa with a decision to try something new, meet new people, eat new things, learn something new and embrace the new. This is the mindset for transformation.

About Vikasa Yoga Retreat
Vikasa is truly a paradise location which adds an extra dimension to your yoga practice as a whole.
The environment is conducive to relaxing where you can disconnect from the hustle and bustle and focus inwards on your practice and spiritual growth. Here at Vikasa our core values are the three ways in which consciousness expands. This expansion starts with the self, it grows through our minds, bodies and energy until we are powerful motivators of connection and manifestors of change through our communities and throughout our world.
Vikasa is the ideal healthy lifestyle venue for a yoga training, due to its balance of secluded island paradise, freshly-prepared food and a yoga sala constructed in a beautiful setting and designed to get the best out of students – making it the perfect environment for study.
We are a relaxed establishment where you can unplug and reconnect to something deeper in a meaningful way.
Vikasa Yoga Retreat in Koh Samui offers several types of accommodation ranging from simple eco-friendly bamboo bungalows to full-sized rooms. We are not a one-size-fits-all kind of place. Our rooms are democratically priced because we believe this range of accommodation allows for a wider range of students to experience Vikasa.
Tips for choosing your perfect room: If you like to stay close to the beach, check out our red-roofed Prana Cabanas. If you prefer a garden location with a village feeling, try the Zen Bungalows. If you don’t want to walk down too many stairs, the Yoga Caves could be a good option. If you need a bit of extra space and a central location, Lotus Pads are a good place to start.

You will become aware of the limiting beliefs that are preventing you from achieving your full potential. You will recharge and thrive.
Being equipped with breathing techniques and nutritional information will provide a solid platform on which to base your lifestyle. However, these alone will not precipitate dramatic change without learning how to fortify your mindset and adapt your environment to one more conducive to your new-found habits. Your life philosophy is created by your own thoughts and beliefs, which mold your perception of your environment and, in turn, your own reality. Learning how to adopt a positive mindset will positively influence all areas of your life and wellbeing.
Aside from the obvious benefit of enhanced focus, meditation also enables us to look for the answers that are only available with access to the higher mind (intuition and unlimited source of creativity). You will find it easier to live fully in the present moment, to cultivate a sense of calm and presence in daily life and not be triggered by small nuances throughout your day.
Meditation helps us feel a greater connection to our self, as well as a connection to the greater world and our place within it. Learning tools for meditation will offer you natural ways to cope with stress, anxiety and feelings of negativity. You’ll learn how to center yourself and find a lightness, confidence and ease that truly knowing yourself, and this quiet space within you, offers.
Vikasa is located on Koh Samui, which is an island in the Gulf of Thailand. Vikasa is in the south east corner of the island, in between Chaweng Noi and Lamai. Vikasa is a 20 minute drive from Koh Samui International Airport (USM) and a 35 minute drive from the Nathon and Lipa Noi ferry terminals.
The best way to get to Vikasa is to fly into Koh Samui International Airport (USM). There are daily flights into Koh Samui from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and others. We will arrange your pick up from the airport.
This will depend on where you are from. For details of Thailand’s visa arrangements with specific countries see here:
Although tourist visas are generally required, there is an exemption for travellers from 30 countries (Australia, UK, USA, France, Germany, Sweden and others) who wish to travel to Thailand for 30 days or less. If you are a citizen of one of these countries you do not need to obtain a visa. Note that if you plan to stay for longer than 30 days, it is possible to obtain a short extension from the immigration office on Koh Samui at some point during your stay.
If you are not a citizen of one of the countries with which Thailand has specific visa exemption or waiver arrangements, you will need to obtain a 30, 60 or 90 day tourist visa before arriving in Thailand

Koh Samui is a beautiful tropical island located in the Gulf of Thailand. It is approximately 90 minutes from the mainland via ferry, but is easily accessible via airplane. It has a population of around 70,000 people and has key infrastructure such as a small international airport, good medical facilities (including hospitals), banking facilities (including ATMs), good wifi coverage and good roads. It is possible to drive around the entire island in around 90 minutes, and visitors generally either travel via scooter or taxi as walking is difficult. Vikasa is located between Chaweng Noi and Lamai in a quiet area of the island. It is possible to walk from Vikasa to nearby beaches, but guests generally stay on the Vikasa premises or rent scooters or taxis for trips to nearby markets and shopping malls. The weather is generally hot year round, with temperatures often around 30 degrees celsius.
We recommend that participants download the free lifestyle guide and read up on the Vikasa Lifestyle before arrival. If you don’t have time to read it that’s ok too, we will review some content during your program.
