Perfect Place for a Yoga Vacation or YTT
I've been here now the third time here within six years.
The place was already incredible then, but its constant evolution makes it continously even better.
The combination of an interesting diversity of open minded People, the spirit and thorough daily application of a really unique Yoga standard and health program, delicious food in a tasty and healthy mix of raw, organic and thai cuisine, various activities, not to speak about this georgeous place.
All of this together makes it really something extraordinary and special. I'll be back.
Wow My intention was to dive into asana practise and chose Vikasa for its wide offer of schedule, styles and teachers. It held promises.
There is something for every level and demand and I was defenatly challenged and made progress. you can try out new things and you get inspired.
I felt that the teachers teach with heart. My personal favorits: Serge and Pri both made my practise light through their good humour while sharing their knowledge.
The staff is very friendly and caring. The food is just delicious!
