We actively reach out to our community and try to improve what we see.

As the world slowly reopens, we open our doors and our hearts with gratitude. It’s time for revival. It’s time to shake off dormant energy, get back to the mat and back to life. True freedom is having a full heart, open mind and peaceful vibration.

What I Will Learn - Your 300 Hour Curriculum

What I Will Learn

Evolution of Yoga – Kosta Miachin

Kosta refined his practice and teaching of yoga over two decades of experimentation with a number of styles and schools of yoga. The result of this experimentation and refinement is the Vikasa Method. In this module, “Evolution of Yoga”, Kosta leads practices (pranayama, kriya, meditation and asana) which are long and deep – the culmination of years of thoughtful practice, they are not simply physical practices but designed to work on all layers of the practitioner’s being, primarily the often forgotten energetic layer. The practices are physically and mentally challenging, and come with energetic payoffs hardly ever experienced in modern yoga. This module also includes a series of lectures in which Kosta traces the Vikasa Method back to the origins of yoga and situates it within that context and the relevant lineages. The lecture series also dives deep into the rationale behind the Vikasa Method providing a clear and scientific basis for all of the practices and an explanation of the effects.

You will learn:

From Gross to Subtle – Daniel Rama

Health and well-being of the physical body are paramount in pursuit of greater spiritual evolution. As a student, Rama has studied with a diverse array of yoga and movement teachers all over the world. . In this module, From Gross to Subtle, Rama offer expertise and insight into the optimization of the physical body. Learn to build strength, increase flexibility, access greater coordination and more advanced expressions of yoga asana. Progress within the science of yoga moves from gross to subtle; physical to non-physical. This module builds from the ground up and serves as a stepping stone for greater growth. By optimizing physical ability, we begin to access a gateway to deeper experience and that which exists beyond the physical body. Rama has a background in kinesiology and adds a unique level of  authenticity to his yoga practice from living for years in a classical hatha yoga ashram. Present day, Rama has made it his purpose to share the power of yoga, movement and mindfulness with his students online and in person. 

You will learn:

The Art of Sequencing – All Teachers

All Vikasa Senior Teachers have their own individual take on the Vikasa Methodology and Vikasa sequencing principles. In this module, the teachers explain their different interpretations and show you how to sequence effectively and creatively using this methodology but with your own unique flavour. Kosta explains the genesis of the “intelligent freestyle” method. Mikey shows how to create sequences within that framework that are anatomically intelligent as well as fun. And Niki & Michael show how more flowy, vinyasa-style classes can be sequenced using the same principles. The teachers present a clear framework for their approach so that students can understand and replicate in their own teaching.

You will learn:

Deepen & Diversify – Mikey Lazano

Mikey is interested and stimulated by deep physical practice as well as unique techniques and practice modalities that are no longer widely practised within the yoga community. In this module, “Deepen and Diversify”, Mikey takes us on a journey through both of these passions. In Deepen, Mikey leads practices that are complex and physically challenging, designed for advanced practitioners. In Diversify, he leads a series of unique practices (Cross Mat, Mudra/Bandha, Full Surya Namaskar, Partner Yoga) and runs workshops and lectures where these practices are broken down and explained for those wishing to practice in that way themselves. The basics of teaching these practices are also explained.

You will learn:

Higher Yoga – Alex Vyazovov

Alex presents ancient yogic wisdom in a way that is digestible for a modern mind, and thus helps students make their practice more meaningful.

Since all Yoga traditions agree that cultivating the right view is the key ingredient to success on the spiritual path, Alex places focus on Yoga philosophy, and offers meditative exercises that help to embody it.

You will learn:

Making Magic – Niki & Michael

“Making Magic” is a module designed to help teachers find (or rediscover) their inspiration and passion for practising and teaching yoga. Niki and Michael lead (and teach you to teach) “transformational experiences” that are not standard yoga asana practices – dynamic meditations, dance, eye-gazing, guided relaxations, group bonding sessions – but are powerful and transformative for practitioners, and unique and interesting offerings for those leading retreats, trainings or “special occasion” type classes. This module also includes detailed exposition of other key (but often forgotten) advanced teaching skills such as touch, voice and holding space.

Healthy Dinner at Vikasa Life Café

Vikasa mornings are magical with meditation and practice before a robust brunch in a community setting at the Vikasa Life Cafe. Throughout the day, you’ll have a mix of structured group activities such as lectures or workshops, as well as solo downtime and freedom to explore this island paradise. There are 6 days of training per week with 1 day off, usually Sunday. End each day with a relaxing lemongrass tea listening to the island breeze. Sample our YTT for free online to get a taste of daily life at Vikasa. The sound of the tropical birds, the taste of the fresh fruits and the aroma of the flowers? You'll just have to imagine those for 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.
