Training In Paradise At Vikasa Yoga Retreat

The 100hr Immersion with Daniel Rama takes place in our paradise at Vikasa Yoga Retreat – our paradise on the tropical island of Koh Samui, in the Gulf of Thailand.
This location is easily accessible with direct flights from all major hubs in Southeast Asia such as Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Once you’ve arrived, our team will pick you up at USM Samui international airport. Vikasa was specially selected as a place for transformation due to its ideal balance of secluded island paradise, healthy, freshly-prepared food and 4 world class yoga salas constructed in a beautiful setting and designed to get results. Each week, you’ll also be able to fully explore the stunning, green, natural surroundings of Koh Samui, with its abundance of waterfalls, white-sand beaches and dense jungle, on your day off. Plus, you’ll have full access to all resort facilities including Wi-Fi, Infinity Pool, Spa, and acclaimed Vikasa Life Café.

Where will I stay during the training?

Vikasa offers several types of accommodation ranging from our popular private ‘Yoga Caves’ to full-sized hotel style rooms. We are not a one-size-fits-all kind of place. We believe this range of accommodation allows for a wider range of students to attend the course.

Our rooms celebrate simplicity, and come with everything you need for a comfortable stay. all rooms are private, mini fridges in each room offer kombucha and healthy snacks, and each room has unique mandala artwork. We are a relaxed establishment where you can unplug and reconnect to something deeper in a meaningful way. As you will notice, some of our room options have a “+” which means they are a little bit bigger or nicer or have better views than the standard category.

A few tips for choosing your perfect room: If you like to stay close to the beach with lots of privacy, check out our Prana Cabanas. If you don’t want to walk down too many stairs, the Yoga Caves could be a good option for you. If you need a bit of extra space and a central location by the pool and spa, the Lotus Pads are a great choice for you.

Our Student Reviews

Yoga Teacher Trainings and immersions are not just about getting a certificate – you’re getting a community. These journeys can be literally life-changing experiences; and so much of that comes down to the beautiful souls they attract. We love hearing from our graduates and past guests about their highlights of their training and what they got out of their time at Vikasa. We have many reviews that you can read, here are just a few:

Its a good mix of vacation and also learning with Rama.

What I like about his teaching is it’s very practical, you don’t have to be doing everything he is doing to appreciate what he is teaching. You aren’t pressured to do anything, you can just have fun and be yourself.

Maan

Hong Kong

There is no floor or ceiling on this experience.

I promise you Rama will be able to take your practice to the next level. It’s very accessible no matter whether you’re a beginner or very advanced, he will find ways to challenge you and help you to grow.

Timothy

Australia

My experience with Rama was beyond what I had expected.

His knowledge base is enormous. I have never come across anyone who has the breadth of knowledge he has about anatomy and physiology. He has a very genuine and heartfelt approach.

Frequently Asked Questions

Browse the FAQ or get in touch with one of our instructors for personal assistance.

Vikasa is located in Koh Samui, Thailand. Vikasa is located in the south east of the island, close to Lamai and approximately 20 minutes by taxi from Koh Samui International Airport (USM).

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. Alternatively, the Vikasa team can also arrange your pick up from the airport. Flying is the quickest route, but tourists and yoga enthusiasts can also travel by train and ferry which takes approximately 13.5 hours.

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 travelers 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

Anyone is welcome to join this 100 Hour Yoga Intensive. It is ideally designed for people who want to experience a yoga immersion with guided support from a professional and expert in yoga asana. It is also designed for yoga teachers to come and gain insights and wisdom in a supportive and inspiring environment to add to their teaching repertoire. 

Yoga clothes, tropical climate clothes, and swimwear. Yoga mats and props and towels are all provided. You may want to add an excursion to your program such as a waterfall hike, in which case a pair of sneakers would also be handy.

You will receive a Certificate of Completion of 100 Hours of Training from the Vikasa Yoga Academy. This can count towards continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance. This course alone does not qualify you to teach yoga – you need to have also completed a 200 Hour Foundation YTT course in order to qualify as a certified yoga teacher. This is a great addition for yoga teachers, or a great intensive for personal development for all yoga practitioners. 

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 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. This breathtaking island provides a perfect environment for practicing yoga due to its remote setting, natural surroundings, beautiful beaches, and untouched seas.

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 alright too, simply bring an open mind and an open heart.

The promotional offer of $250 off is available for the first 5 people to sign up. Check the upcoming dates at the top of this page, if the promotion is available, it will be stated in green next to the date. Otherwise, you may also contact us for confirmation.

You will receive lifetime access to Rama’s Handstand Bundle, Flexibility Bundle, Supportive Courses including myofascial release, knee health and spinal waves. Plus you will enjoy a free year access to the Becoming Balance Studio subscription with new classes and content updated regularly. The additional hours can be done in your own time and are self paced.
