THE VIKASA LIFESTYLE
Transform Your Life. Inspire Others.
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. The Vikasa Method is rooted in the ancient yoga traditions of the Hatha Veda Texts, Himalayan Vinyasa lineage and higher Taoism practices. Our vision for the future is about evolution. Everything in the world evolves constantly, including human beings. Together we can find a way to be healthy and happy.
TOGETHER, WE CAN RAISE HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS
And make the world a better place. At Vikasa, we focus on the study of yoga with an emphasis on holistic health, organic food and an inspiring environment that is conducive to personal transformation.

Imagine A Place
..where people openly surrender themselves to the waves of transformation and evolution. Surround yourself with boundless, courageous human beings who help to inspire your own evolution. Imagine a transformational wave of energy encompassing all of humanity, like a ripple affect with each individual it graces. We believe a healthy world starts with healthy people, and every evolution starts with just one person. If you change yourself, you can change the world.
YOU CANNOT DO YOGA. YOGA IS YOUR NATURAL STATE
Yoga is a way of being, thinking and giving. Several paths can help us to grow towards being healthier and happier overall. Physical yoga practice is combined with personal transformation in the areas of food, community, wellness, meditation and philosophy. Tools such as detox, adventure, spa and other carefully developed programs make the journey so enjoyable and tailored to individual needs.
the evolution of yoga
Kostantin Miachin, the founder of Vikasa Yoga Retreat is a yoga pioneer and advocate of healthy lifestyle. He shares his vision for a better world through teaching his unique style of yoga, Vikasa Yoga, and by raising human consciousness in regards to philosphy and community.
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 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.
