Konstantin Miachin

FOUNDER


Konstantin ‘Kosta’ Miachin is the founder of Vikasa Yoga in Thailand. Kosta resides in Koh Samui most of the year when he is not otherwise training or teaching in other countries. 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. 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. Now Kosta teaches yoga in Thailand, exclusively at the Vikasa Yoga Retreat.

Micheal Murray - Yoga Teacher

Michael Murray

TEACHER

While initially drawn to the physical aspects of yoga, Michael remains stimulated by the interplay between the physical practice and the more spiritual, inner-journey that can be opened up by the physical practice. In pursuit of this interplay, Michael teaches strong and flowy vinyasa classes focussed both on correct alignment and intuitive movement and also facilitates discussions and lectures on emotional intelligence and personal development. With a background as a finance lawyer, Michael understands the importance of rationality and analysis but also the need, at times, to move beyond these concepts, out of the head and into the body.
