Why choose Vikasa Yoga?

Vikasa means evolution when translated from Sanskrit. The Vikasa Yoga Method is based on individual evolution and spiritual development. Our world and nature are in a constant state of change. Our primary goal is evolution, and yoga can be seen as a tool to facilitate that.

The Vikasa Yoga Method is an integral system of yoga based on classical Hatha yoga lineages, with influence from Himalayan Buddhism and Taoism practices. The method is based on universal rules of yoga that ultimately allow the practitioner to develop highly intelligent and mindful practice.

Our training starts with a strong physical foundation, evolving into energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual practice. Key principles and rules of yoga are taught, allowing the teachers of Vikasa Yoga and dedicated practitioners to gain in-depth understanding, knowledge and insight into the methodology and the effects of yoga practice.

The Vikasa yoga system encourages function within an existing society, rather than against it or apart from it. This allows for deeper connections with the spiritual and physical beings that surround us on a daily basis. When individuality is inspired and oneness within community is celebrated, the teachings become inclusive of infinite possibilities.

Who is this immersion for?

 

This Training Is Not For Everyone.

The depth of the spiritual and physical practice of Vikasa Yoga is for yoga practitioners who yearn for a more profound balance and closeness to their true essence.

We invite you to apply for this training if you:

  • Are a serious student committed to the study of yoga.
  • Wish to become a yoga teacher, differentiate and add to your yoga instruction skill set, or if you just want to dive into a deeper inquiry with yoga.
  • Have a longing for immersion, in a 4 week all encompassing educational and spiritual guided program.
  • Feel a connection or pull to experience the beautiful energy of Thailand.

Our teaching program includes, daily yoga practice, lectures, experiential personal and spiritual development activities, lessons and time to practice yoga teaching skills and techniques, and adequate rest and relaxation.

Unlike a local Yoga Teacher Training, where you go to classes and otherwise live in your normal surroundings [with the stress and responsibilities that come with it], this course is designed to be all-inclusive and immersive, so you can focus purely on your growth for the life changing weeks you are in Thailand.

 
 
 

WHO ARE THE TEACHERS?

Training will be led by a team of expert teachers, each sharing their specialist knowledge to help you become a skilful and teacher

Konstantin Miachin

Course director, founder of Vikasa Yoga Academy

Kosta’s journey into yoga 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 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. The vision for Vikasa Yoga was born upon 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.

Mikey Lazano

Assistant Teacher

Michael Lazano first came to yoga as a means for increasing flexibility, but after discovering how much more there is to yoga, quickly fell in love with the practice, which actually happened on a visit to Vikasa for a yoga holiday; he came back and completed both his 200 and 300 hour Teacher Trainings here, before eventually returning permanently, to live in beautiful Koh Samui and take a place on the Vikasa team. Although Michael only found yoga later on in life, in many ways he was born into the lifestyle, raised as a Vegetarian with a strong spiritual/moral compass, with a philosophy completely aligned with the ancient Yogic texts; he always felt a pull to help and serve the world and all beings in some way or other. Michael feels strongly about promoting choices of happiness, peace and love, along with simply having fun and enjoying this short ride we call life.

Graduation

The best yoga teacher training graduation ceremony on the entire planet.

We don’t like to brag but this is special…

We leave Vikasa around 4pm and hop aboard this incredible sailing boat and set sail for Koh Som Island!

Delicious food and drinks are served before everyone jumps off to swim in the warm, crystal clear waters of the bay… the sound of chilled out beats filling the air.

Music and dancing on the boat as the sun sets before the emotional and joyful graduation ceremony itself.

A truly magical experience shared with special new friends….

A fitting conclusion to what will have been a life changing few weeks.

 

What will I eat?

 

Vikasa serves wholesome health-conscious meals in buffet style as part of your all-inclusive package price. Vegans and vegetarians are catered for with love.

Your day begins with a healthful and energizing brunch. A freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee, a sunny side up or vegetable omelette, wholegrain toasts, oatmeal muesli with yoghurt or chia seed pudding, super foods, boiled veggies with specialty in-house organic dips, vegetarian sandwiches or pancakes, and of course a variety of fresh-cut tropical fruits.

Dinner includes a hot soup, typical local dishes with tofu, brown rice, two or three vegetarian dishes, fresh salad, dahl, and always one seafood dish. For dessert we serve fruits, occasional delectable mango sticky rice or other uniquely Thai savouring.

Our homemade signature tea is a perfect finish to your meal. We also serve light snacks during afternoon breaks; however many students prefer to eat out while exploring nearby beaches or famous shopping areas.

REQUIREMENTS / BACKGROUND CHECK.

The course is recommended for those who have already successfully completed a foundation teacher training course. The completed foundation does not have to be from Vikasa, it can be from another yoga school. On a physical level, ability to sit still comfortably for at least 30 minutes is required. Full padmasana or lotus pose is recommended, and so is headstand, however do not worry if you cannot do them, they might just open up to you during the course. Students should be able to hold chaturanga dandasana for at least 30 seconds (for ladies with support of knees on the floor). Ability to perform the foundation series of Vikasa Yoga.
