Vikasa Yoga

            +66 831077397      



Vikasa means evolution, or spiritual development, when translated from Sanskrit language.

The concept of “evolution of yoga” is based on the notion that everything in the world evolves constantly, including human beings. Our primary goal as a human race and that of any living organism is evolution, and yoga can be seen as a tool to facilitate such evolution in any given individual. However, as the practice of yoga itself changes with time and place, as new techniques are being introduced, the approach is becoming more technical, precise and scientific, any definition of it as a system or style seems to be a limitation in itself. Therefore, the “Evolution of Yoga” approach has to be seen as an ever-evolving process, which anyone can be a part of, rather than a complete static system.

“Evolution of Yoga” approach is based on integrating deep core work with precise alignment, combining active dynamic exercises from different disciplines with static poses from classic hatha yoga schools, alternating dynamic and static, pressure and deep relaxation, therefore exploring the ha-tha or the yin and yang concept to it’s maximum potential, using the principle of hyper compensation for a progressive and balanced practice, which becomes a very effective tool that allows the body to transform efficiently and optimize all bodily systems.

Evolution of Yoga is about challenging yourself with ever progressing program in order to transform, optimize and balance, to fine-tune your system. Core bodywork is integrated with precision breathing, through which highest states of concentration that lead to meditation can be experienced. As the students get more familiar with the bodywork, pranayama or breathing exercises are introduced to take the practitioner to the next level, ultimately leading to meditation and expansion of consciousness, or – evolution!

  • Do you love yoga?
  • Tired of working in a corporate world pleasing your boss?
  • Would you like to have a freedom of choice?
  • Are you ready to make some serious changes to your life and set yourself free?

You could try to set aside more time for normal classes, or your personal practice, but… when you realize you can just come and learn from master teachers in a setting where you can just study, practice, and live Yoga, without any distractions, you’ll know you’re going to be on the fast path to a brighter you. Our comprehensive course is all about providing this opportunity for you.

We bring all the ancient wisdom to light in a way that is fresh and applicable to the modern time and lifestyle. Our team of teachers will make sure your understanding and practice of Yoga is clearer and more powerful than ever and you’ll feel and see how life begins to change from the inside out, to become more beautiful, peaceful, and happy. We will give you the retreat you need to go deeper into this space of transformation while still providing convenience and all the modern amenities. Could it get any better as you picture it happening on a lush tropical island with white sand beaches, crystal-clear blue seas, gorgeous green jungles? Not to mention, there is also the pleasant experience of the local Thai culture, agreed to be one of the most beautiful and amiable in the world.

This is our Yoga Teacher Training in Koh Samui, Thailand, an awe-inspiring get away in South East Asia, agreed by many to have an energy that magnifies your intentions. Whether it be a relaxing vacation, an exhilarating adventure, or a life changing Yoga journey that has the best of both, this is the place. When you join our course you will become a part of a group of peers and teachers who are driven to improve the quality of living in the world today.

What you Get

You spend one month learning about your passion in our classic, Thai style wooden house at a beautiful and healthy setting between the mountains and the sea, recharging and even upgrading your batteries!

You get our 200 hour Yoga Alliance standard Yoga Teacher Training course which covers everything you need and more to go out and start teaching Yoga right away!

You’ll make a new network of peers, mentors, and friends that will open up opportunities and new experiences to you for the rest of your life!

You’ll transform yourself to be a person that is easier to be happy, harder to be upset, and all around wiser, fitter, and healthier.

More importantly, each of our five teachers is dedicated and passionate about what they will be teaching you. They live what they teach! This makes for a high quality course with lots of practical application, perfect for budding, soon-to-be Yoga teachers. You’ll be witnessing and experiencing yourself in new ways through practice, anatomical demonstrations, philosophical lessons…lessons that show you the subtleties of what it means to be a human being awakening into a undeniably new stage in the evolution of consciousness. You’ll also be getting lots of hands on experience teaching and assisting your fellow classmates as we compassionately guide you to be the best you can be. And, whether you plan to go on from your training as a teacher, or a practitioner with a deeper appreciation for yourself and the yogic lifestyle, you’ll be confident and energized to give a little more love to the world around you as you live a happier and healthier life.

Deciding to do a Yoga Teacher Training in Asia, especially in Thailand, has some nice benefits. Thai culture is infused with Buddhism which is an offspring of the ancient Yogic philosophies. It reflects in the behavior and character of the people here who generally tend to be very friendly and polite. You’ll find lots of inspiration visiting the Thai temples and seeing people make ritual offerings all over the place. And even though most Thai’s are Buddhist, they also incorporate the Hindu deities used by the traditional Yogis of India. It’s common to see statues of Shiva, Ganesh, Saraswati, and so on. The climate here is also just right for having a vigorous and detoxifying practice.

Greatest Reasons to be a Yoga Teacher

You passion becomes your job! As you develop as a teacher your compassion will grow as well!

Work less and earn more! You can spend way fewer hours working compared to a typical job and still earn just as much…or more! Leaving you with more time for your own practice and other passions.

Be your own boss! Make your own schedule! This job has some of the greatest flexibility possible…(you know I didn’t mean like that!) because you create and take the classes that work for you.

Have more freedom! You increase your traveling potential. All you need is your presence and experience and you can work all over the world. And, as you make connections, more possibilities open up to you.

Take your own practice to the next level! Teaching will bring your mastery to a new level. You may have heard a saying like this, “To learn, study. To know, practice. To master, teach.” Really, you discover there is limitless potential.

Make a difference! You have a job that really matters and touches people!

Stay healthy, happy and fit, and be surrounded by like-minded people.

While this is the first Vikasa – the evolution of yoga teacher training, the experience and expertise of your teachers could convince you otherwise. Consider all the bases covered.

You’ll have three exceptional Asana teachers who can assist your own practice, giving you valuable feedback, and leading you safely into deeper postures, meditative states, and energetic practices. They’ll also be training you to develop your voice as a teacher, lead amazing classes, how to market yourself, and be there to guide you through your transformation.

You’ll have a registered Physiotherapist and expert on anatomy teaching you all the fundamentals and fine points about the structure and movement of the human body. There will be essential practical demonstrations for understanding anatomy applied to Yoga Asana, how to give precise adjustments, how to avoid injury, and various methods of using props to assist alignment or create therapeutic practices.

For the historic foundation and inner workings of Yoga you’ll have an expert of Sanskrit and mantra, teaching philosophy, meditation, and leading kirtan(call and response chanting) with musical accompaniment on sitar.

Philosophy and Spirit of Yoga Module

This portion of the course is going to reveal more than you ever even thought there was to Yoga!

You’re understanding of why, how, and what we call Yoga will be amplified. Ram will be teaching you the most important and relevant ancient texts of India that show the bigger spiritual picture of Yoga and how to live in it. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras will be examined carefully as this masterpiece provides a clear view into the nature of Mind, self-discipline, and the path to Enlightenment. The Bhagavad Gita will be studied as a means for understanding Dhamma, or our sacred duty in the world.

Sanskrit, the language of Yoga, will be explored as you hear and recite different mantras and sutras which invoke the wisdom of sages and the empowering vibrations of the Sanskrit alphabet. This bridge of spoken Sanskrit will lead you into energetic practices, really experiencing what the ancient Yogis of India have blessedly passed down to us. Pranayama, methods of controlling and moving energy, will be taught and practiced regularly, as well as group singing in the Kirtan. Pranayama can greatly increase the power of our discipline and our bodies. The Kirtan experience helps us dissolve into the heart of the human spirit, singing together as one group, no thoughts, just our voices and the music.

Anatomy and Therapy of Yoga Module

Brought to you by Australia and Hong Kong registered Physiotherapist, Ms Michelle Lam (University of Melbourne, Australia), these practical based sessions, aim at introducing the Anatomy and Physiology that relate to Yoga. Basic anatomical structures and definition of terms will be introduced, followed by practical sessions on the various joints that are most prone to injuries in Yoga. It is the aim of this session to reduce the likelihood of injuries in the vertebral column, knee joint complex, hip joint, shoulder girdle and pelvic girdle. Constraints due to individual structural variations and how these would affect asana performance will also be discussed.

Anatomy session will not be completed unless you can put your knowledge into practice and application. The Applied Anatomy training is focused on how to adjust clients and / or using Yoga props, based on the understanding of joint structures and the analysis of the asanas.

To perfect student’s understanding, the Anatomy & Physiology session also includes the basic physiology of the respiratory system and digestive system. Understanding these internal dynamic movements leads the practitioner to a more profound energetic practice as you learn how to develop greater lung capacity and refine your awareness of Bandha.

Marketing And Business of Yoga Module

I also had all these doubts when I started out… This portion of the course will teach you how to work less, and earn more.

Yoga in Action Module

This program is about embarking on a journey of self-inquiry, with the support of a like-minded group, that leads to action within our community and outside world. “Action” can be many things, ranging from healing relationships with family and friends, to extending oneself to the larger community, or doing national or international work. The main intention is to understand the nature of our interdependence and our unique role in the web of life: to feel significant and as a part of this greater whole. This is the embodiment of Karma Yoga and also Dhamma, or self-less service and the fulfilling of your duty in this life.

During this week, you will be guided through an intensive transformational process using vinyasa flow yoga and other tools to uncover your deepest passions and motivation. We will combine yoga asanas, meditation and visualization, experiential exercises, process work and ritual with the practical tools of communication, organizing, and collaborating with your peers. We will also introduce practical methods for each of you to begin to bring your own unique purpose into the world as action with the support and inspiration of your community.

Teacher Profiles

Konstantin Miachin – course director, founder of Vikasa Yoga

(Teaching methodology and practice, Marketing and Business)

Konstantin is an international yoga teacher and founder of Vikasa Yoga studio based in Koh Samui, Thailand. He has been passionately learning, practicing, and teaching Yoga for over six years, and his passion has lead him to search out his own personal development throughout the world. This quest has brought him into contact with many different schools and masters all over the world, in places such as Rishi-kesh, Uttar Kashi, Gangotri, Kerala, Goa, Canada, Thailand, Hong Kong and Ukraine to name a few. He has completed teacher trainings in three different disciplines, including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yoga 23 (by master Andrei Siderski) and Sivananda. Such an overwhelming wealth of knowledge has led to a deeper understanding of yoga practice as an ever evolving process – rather than a finalized system, as a tool for evolution of a human being – rather than a goal in itself. Hence, the concept of “Evolution of Yoga” was born.

The concept of “evolution of yoga” is based on the notion that everything in the world evolves constantly, including human beings. Our primary goal as a human race and that of any living organism is evolution, and yoga can be seen as a tool to facilitate such evolution in any given individual. However, as the practice of yoga itself changes with time and place, as new techniques are being introduced, the approach is becoming more technical, precise and scientific, any definition of it as a system or style seems to be a limitation in itself. Therefore, the “Evolution of Yoga” approach has to be seen as an ever-evolving process, based on classical hatha yoga techniques, which anyone can be a part of, rather than a complete static system.

George has been actualizing a life inspired by Yoga for over five years now. In the beginning, and to the present, Yoga has shown him that life is about the quality of our present experience. For the last three years he has been teaching integrated Yoga practices from many teachers and styles with a little something extra… through a penchant for profound yet simple observances, he reminds us of the vastness of the infinite possibilities, each contained within this present moment. These Zen koan like anecdotes cultivate a practice opened up to discoveries and evolution within the planes of experience.

Since becoming a certified teacher he has facilitated practitioners while teaching at detox retreats, conducting workshops and scheduled classes in USA, Thailand, and Vietnam, as well as teaching bilingual Yoga teacher courses. He has also worked extensively with students privately, one on one, creating practices that provide personal challenge, encouragement, and humor.
