Evolve Retreat by Vikasa (7 Days / 6 Nights)

Evolve isn’t your average yoga retreat. This is a week dedicated to your personal development and evolution. 

Join Niki and Michael at Vikasa in beautiful Koh Samui, Thailand and be guided through a retreat journey designed to help you let go of the old and embrace new beginnings.

With daily yoga, morning rituals, guided meditation, dynamic meditation practices, dance, movement, journaling and wellness activities, this retreat invites you to dive deep within to unearth anything stagnant that has been holding you back from living a life of freedom, truth, love and joy.

This is a small, guided group journey, open to all ages and all levels of yoga experience. 

In a supportive and inspiring space you will be invited to navigate your own personal journey of self-inquiry and self-discovery. You will shed old layers, tap into your innermost dreams and goals, and begin to find your way back to who you truly are. 

As a group, you will practice, play, share, explore, laugh and cry. You will leave not only a beautiful experience and set of memories to hold onto, but with a number of tools and powerful yet simple practices to continue your journey of self-evolution from anywhere life takes you. 

This week-long immersive yoga retreat will awaken your soul and open your heart with unique practices and dynamic workshops to activate, nourish and enliven you.

PRACTITIONER

Niki Lunderber Vikasa Retreat - Destination Deluxe

Niki Lundberg
Vikasa Senior Yoga Teacher and Vikasa Co-Owner   

Niki has been hosting yoga and meditation retreats in Sweden, France and India for many years. She has witnessed and facilitated the personal evolution of hundreds of people. She is convinced the transformative power of yoga can be sparked instantly and sometimes a short yoga retreat is all it takes for lasting journeys to begin. Her senior teaching position in Vikasa’s Yoga Teacher Training programs combined with her background in psychology, entrusts Niki with the emotional development of our next generation of yoga teachers. In this role she is committed to developing yoga teachers who are technically proficient and emotionally aware with skills such as non-reactive listening and holding space. In formulating the Evolve Retreat, Niki and Michael included some elements inspired by the Vikasa YTT which they both help lead several times each year.

 

Michael Murray Vikasa Retreat - Destination Deluxe

Michael Murray
Vikasa Senior Yoga Teacher and Vikasa Co-Owner

Michael worked for nine years as a finance lawyer before finding yoga as a means to handle stress. Very quickly it became much more than that for him. Yoga became a powerful tool to reconnect with his true self which he was repressing for a long time. It also led him to meet his wife Niki and uncover the purpose of his life. Today Michael and Niki share the transformative power of yoga with retreats such as the Evolve Fitness Retreats. Michael also teaches in Vikasa’s Yoga Teacher Training programs. His teaching style is physical yet playful, flowing yet accessible for all. Michael and Niki often teach together where their different yet highly complementary styles combine to create special experiences for their students. They created the Evolve Retreat as a guided nurturing space which is accessible for all levels of yoga and meditation education and experience.

 

WHERE: Vikasa Yoga, Koh Samui, Thailand
WHEN: 22 – 28 December 2024 (7 Days / 6 Nights)

ACCOMMODATION & PRICE: 

Private Yoga Cave Plus (US$1,790 all-inclusive)

Bridging the gap between a hotel room and an authentic Thai experience, our Yoga Caves are small but very comfortable single private rooms that offer sweeping views over the sea and rocks below.

Relax on your comfy bed facing out over the ocean and take in one of the best panoramas on Koh Samui. Sleep, read or meditate in peace. Modest in terms of size but still to our high standards, the air-conditioned Yoga Cave Plus offers a quiet, personal place to stay for individual travelers.

The yoga caves do not have bathrooms en-suite. There is a large shared and public restroom and shower facility located just behind the block of Yoga Caves. The showers have hot water and Vikasa toiletries provided. A bathrobe is provided in each cave for your comfort. Rooms are cleaned daily by our housekeeping team. 

Private Lotus Pad (US$2,180 all-inclusive)

Renew your flow each morning gazing over the calming waves or nestled in the rejuvenating tropical gardens; these private ensuite rooms offer a serene space that centers around the plush king bed oriented towards the beautiful, expansive views. Each room is accented with local elements and eco-friendly toiletries.

Most Lotus Pads have a private terrace to soak up the fresh island air, meditate, relax, and take in the stunning natural surroundings. They’re conveniently located between the pool and the yoga shalas so you can recharge between classes. All Lotus Pad rooms have a healthy mini bar, desk, hot water, air conditioning and are cleaned daily by our housekeeping team. All rooms have been recently renovated and refurbished for maximum comfort.

FOOD: Meals are a highlight of every Vikasa retreat.

The Vikasa Life cafe is a world-renowned restaurant on Koh Samui offering the highest quality, most delicious, and highly nutritious meals to fuel your yoga journey.

Kickstart your day with an amazing brunch enjoyed in a beautiful, community setting with majestic view across the ocean. Fresh juice, tea and coffee, a sunny side up or vegetable omelet, fresh sourdough toasts and spreads, oatmeal or muesli with yogurt, or chia seeds pudding, superfoods, veggies with specialty in-house organic dips, and of course a variety of fresh-cut tropical fruits.

Enjoy an abundant buffet plus cook-to-order hot dishes.

Dinner includes hot soups, flavorsome Thai dishes with tofu, brown rice, two or three vegetarian dishes, fresh salads, dahl, and always one seafood dish. Each night is themed with Mexican, Thai, Italian, Middle Eastern, and more. Every night there is a buffet with soups, salad, bread, and vegetable dishes plus one cook-to-order main meal served to every guest.

If you need a pick me up outside of meal times, the full al la carte menu is available, plus plenty of fresh juices, smoothies and kombucha, and healthy, guilt-free treats and snacks.
