Vikasa Yoga Retreats & Trainings

Wild Heart Thailand Yoga Retreat


Mar 1 - 7, 2020

Prices from: $1500 USD

Led by international yoga instructor Danica Johnson, this trip is a once in a lifetime chance to practice yoga, tune into your beautiful and wild heart, and experience the magic of Vikasa, a world-renowned yoga center on the gorgeous Thai island of Ko Samui.

Danica (@danicayoga) will lead you through daily yoga practices in an open-air yoga shala with a stunning view of the ocean. Between yoga classes, you will be able to pamper your body with spa treatments and Thai massage, lounge on white sand beaches, eat fresh, healthy haute cuisine prepared by award-winning chefs (seriously, check out this menu!), and explore all that Ko Samui has to offer.

We will practice yoga twice a day, meditate, take a tour of local temples on Samui, and close our time together with a beautiful sunset ocean cruise. Your investment includes two one-hour massages, three customized yoga workshops (details below), daily journaling, meditation, and pranayama (breathing practice), the two day trips mentioned above, airport transfers to and from Ko Samui airport, and a goodie bag from Danica. Plus...

Your memories of this phenomenal adventure will be captured by talented photographer/videographer/yoga instructor Felix Rodriguez (@feelo.life on IG). All group images will be provided to guests after the retreat.

Vikasa, with its world-famous teachers and stunning location, is the perfect place to connect with your heart and passions. You will leave this retreat refreshed, relaxed, sound in mind and body, and full of gratitude for the power of human connection and the vast healing power of nature.

Felix Rodriguez: Retreat Photographer and Yoga Instructor

Comparison is the thief of joy, so Felix encourages his students to find joy in every little thing they can and try to connect in a disconnected world.

Felix has photographed famous yogis, dancers, and contortionists from around the world.
