YOGA vacation IN THAILAND
Did you ever return from your vacation feeling like you need another? Stressful daily routines lead us to chose holidays which are the polar opposite of our everyday lives, such as a typical beach holiday fueled by cocktails and fried foods.

Are you ready to transform your day to day routine and start living a life that brings you lasting health and happiness?

So many of our guests have wrote amazing letters to us, sharing their stories of transformation and how the Vikasa Experience changed their life forever..
Beginners are welcome
Many people try yoga at Vikasa for the first time. It might be challenging in the beginning, but you just have to remember that you are not here to impress anyone, and you have nothing to prove. Just keep trying and enjoy the process.
The Vikasa Experience may often result in major changes in your lifestyle. Once you see how we do it here, you are very likely to fall in love with the place, but also start making changes to your own lifestyle upon returning home.
As you condition and strengthen your body through physical exercise, it becomes resistant to stress. Combine that with meditations, which are exercises for the mind, and you have a tool set to keep yourself stress free.
HEALTHY AND HAPPY
Healthy body and calm mind lead to healthy spirit. Through yoga practice and good diet you can become healthy and strong. Practice of mindfulness, or being here and now, will lead to happiness, as you will learn to focus on the amazing things around you instead of being lost in your thoughts all the time.
