Founder: Konstantin Miachin
Konstantin ‘Kosta’ Miachin and his pioneering brand of yoga called Vikasa, represent the ‘evolution of yoga’.
His vision is one of raising human consciousness and making the world a better place by spreading the message of love and peace. This mighty task is being accomplished at Vikasa yoga retreat by focusing on the study of yoga with an emphasis on holistic health, organic food and an inspiring environment that is conducive to personal transformation.
Kosta’s passion for yoga blossomed in 2004 when he set out on his own journey of self discovery. This journey 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 the North East of Thailand. Kosta is a certified yoga instructor with four different schools: Yoga 23 (Ukraine), Sivananda (India), Ashtanga Vinyasa (Thailand) and Andiappan Yoga (Hong Kong) and maintains close ties to many otheryoga schoolsaround the world.
The vision for Vikasa yoga was born on Koh Samui with Kosta’s 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.
With his wealth of knowledge and experience came the understanding that yoga is an ever evolving process and unfolding of one’s own nature. Thus the concept of yoga as a constant evolution was born as ‘Vikasa: the evolution of yoga by Konstantin Miachin’.
