The meaning of Vikasa is evolution, or spiritual growth, as translated from Sanskrit. The Vikasa Yoga Method is rooted in the ancient traditions of Hatha Yoga practice. Yoga is a tool for personal growth and evolution – this is the foundation of the Vikasa Yoga philosophy.

At Vikasa Yoga Retreat in Thailand, we focus on the study of yoga with an emphasis on holistic health, organic food and an inspirational environment that is conducive to personal transformation. Vikasa is more than a place or even a practice – it is a lifestyle.



The concept behind the Vikasa Method is evolution or spiritual growth as translated from Sanskrit. The Vikasa Method is rooted in the ancient yogis traditions of the Hatha Veda Texts, Himalayan Vinyasa lineage and higher Taoism practices. In the same way that evolution is personal and ever changing, so too is this reflected in the Vikasa Method.

At Vikasa, we focus on the study of yoga with an emphasis on holistic health, organic food and an inspirational environment that is conducive to personal transformation.

Vikasa is Sanskrit for becoming visible, expanding and shining forth. Inspired by the notion of personal integration and evolution, our founder, Kosta Miachin developed the Vikasa Method to reflect his deeply held belief that yoga can be a tool of transformation: a means to helping individuals evolve physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually.

Kosta resides and teaches yoga in Koh Samui most of the year when he is not otherwise training or teaching in other countries. Born in Eastern Europe, with extensive time spent in Canada, Europe, America and Asia, Kosta is very much a global yogi with a global vision. Kosta’s passion for yoga blossomed in 2004 when he set out on his own journey of self-discovery.
