Learn At Vikasa Yoga Retreat
Eating better doesn’t mean starving yourself or forcing yourself to eat food that you don’t enjoy.
Naturally, much of the program will focus on learning about better nutrition and finding a new way of eating that works for you. We will help you analyze your approach to real-life situations involving food, from end-of-the-workday comfort food binges to celebrations. You will have ready-made strategies and tools to help you stay on track with new habits once you return home. Vitox will teach you how to respond to hunger cues, and to adapt your behavior to nourish yourself guilt-free. A major part of this learning process involves positive thinking and working out how to connect the frequencies of body and mind. If you learn how to think more positively, you are more likely to eat more healthily. In turn, you will feel better in your body and have the energy needed to regularly exercise.
Vikasa’s Vitox Program is a 100% holistic cleansing process.
Rather than focusing on deprivation and colonic irrigation, Vitox uses herbs combined with select whole raw foods that feed your body while it has the opportunity to clean itself from the inside out.
When you arrive at Vikasa, you will undergo a private consultation and initial assessment with a qualified Vitox coach. He or she will help you to devise your eating plan for the duration of the program.
There are various levels or options for your week on Vitox. There is an option to consume juices only, juices and raw food or a mix of only juice and raw food depending on how you feel.
Each day, your Vitox coach will review your progress and make any needed adjustments to ensure your detox process is as enjoyable and effective as possible. We employ a team of experienced specialists on nutrition, naturopathy, and health coaching to come up with a plan that will leave you looking and feeling amazing.
Do you feel physically or emotionally heavy? And tired of having an unhealthy relationship with food?
The Evolution Of Detox
What do you imagine when you contemplate a detox program? Visions of hunger, weird food, kale juice, colonics and coffee enemas?
Vikasa’s Vitox Program is aimed at detoxing the body at a deep cellular level, rather than bulk weight loss. However, losing a few kilograms of extracellular fluid is a common outcome. Many of those who derive the deepest feelings of accomplishment after completing the course are those that have weight-related goals physically, mentally and emotionally.
A week in the serene Vikasa retreat can be a perfect opportunity to address unresolved emotional issues and to make a clean break with old, negative influences. Our detox specialists will provide support and encouragement in daily one on one coaching sessions. They will listen to you and make any necessary personalized adjustments during the course of the program, so you get the most out of your time with us.
Aside from learning about nutrition, you will leave Vikasa with a strong, positive mindset. You are a powerful creative being. You can change your perceptions by changing your thoughts and expectations. You can treat yourself with love and self-respect.

Enjoy The Experience
Vitox has been specifically designed to minimize ‘healing crisis’, a mismanagement of free radicals released as toxins. Common symptoms can include lethargy, irritability, and cravings. These are symptoms of a short-term reaction to the healing process and will pass quickly as your body adjusts.
It is natural to have some hunger pangs during the first days of a cleansing program, often due to psychological, rather than physiological, factors. These will eventually pass as the stomach and mind become accustomed to your new regime. Some people lose weight during a cleansing program, and others lose very little. How much primarily depends on how fast or slow a person’s metabolism is, and how much weight they are carrying.
Each day during the Vitox program, you will feel different; physically, emotionally and mentally. Be patient with yourself and stay positive; you are going through a healing process which can be challenging.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Browse the FAQ or get in touch with one of our instructors for personal assistance.
The Vitox program and detox in general is incompatible with smoking and drinking alcohol. We recommend undergoing programs to remedy specific addictions before undertaking a detox program if foregoing these habits will overshadow your detox experience. In addition, you will have to go without coffee during the Vitox program, but the good news is that we have a tasty, healthy substitute in our blend of chicory root coffee.
The practice of meditation will still the mind as your body undergoes the changes brought about by a new, healthier diet. When meditating, we are able to focus inwardly and control our mental state. We can step back, observing who we really are and what we really want from life rather than short-term fixes that leave a feeling of emptiness afterwards.
You will learn breathing techniques to still the mind, reaching a state of grace and leading you away from the hectic, panic-laden responses to the demands of modern life. You will learn how to evolve as a person, adapting to your environment in a stronger, more sustainable manner. You will learn how to better control your environment and to project positivity rather than vulnerability.

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.

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.
