Key principles and rules of yoga are taught, allowing the teachers and dedicated practitioners to gain in-depth understanding, knowledge and insight into the methodology and the effects of yoga practice.

Key principles and rules of yoga are taught, allowing the teachers and dedicated practitioners to gain in-depth understanding, knowledge and insight into the methodology and the effects of yoga practice. Our approach encourages integration with society in a modern context. Our teaching modules each represent a pillar of the Vikasa Yoga Method: Mind, Body and Energy. These three pillars, when taught together, create a well-rounded yoga education with emphasis on the development of the individual.

The unique curriculum that has been tried and tested over the years, ever-evolving with lasting results.​

Our approach is further defined by the 5 shells or layers known as “koshas” physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual. We like to think of our curriculum as two “hands” of learning under two structural pillars of practice and theory.

The branches of topics vary from asana and meditation through methodology and application. This method of learning has taken years to refine and now provides a stable platform for learning on mental and physical levels.

Kosta Miachin

Founder & Lead Yoga Teacher

Kosta’s journey into yoga has taken him to the far reaches of the world, from remote Himalayan ashrams, to his initiation by a master monk in a sacred Sak-Yant ceremony in Thailand. Kosta has undergone extensive training and was certified with five different schools: Yoga 23, Sivananda Yoga, Mysore Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Andiappan Yoga and Universal Yoga and maintains close ties to many other yoga schools around the world. The vision for Vikasa Yoga was born upon realization that the deeper dimension of yoga is a spiritual journey and a conscious evolution of the individual. Seeing this as the ultimate human endeavor, he committed his life to supporting others on this path and has been teaching yoga for over 20 years now.

Yoga Retreat With Accommodation In Thailand

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 modestly priced because we believe this range of accommodation allows for a wider range of students to attend the course. We are a relaxed establishment where you can unplug and reconnect to something deeper in a meaningful way.
