Vikasa yoga teacher training 15 April-13 May

Some time ago, in November, I wrote about an opening of a new yoga studio - Vikasa

Today, after being a loyal member of this place from the day one, and after watching daily studio life, I want to share with you one of the most incredible journey, which I have ever witnessed in Samui (pity - couldn't join) - Vikasa first yoga teacher training 15 April - 13 May

For those who didn't read my post before - Vikasa Yoga in Koh Samui, Thailand is a boutique yoga studio and raw food organic restaurant, created by Konstantin Miachin and a team of professionals.

Although this might be hard to believe, this is the only open-air yoga studio in Koh Samui at the moment, located in a beautiful Zen Garden, between Chaweng and Bo Phut, just opposite Makro supermarket on ring road.

Konstantin is an international yoga teacher and founder of Vikasa Yoga studio.  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, 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.

That's what our typical daily class looks like (well, a bit slower than that, but you get the idea :-)

This first Vikasa Yoga Teacher Training at Koh Samui, Thailand welcomed 26 amazing people from all over the world as the students. Like the relaxing pace of the island life style, it went by smooth with teachers and students getting closer with one another. There is a great deal of respect between all of them. There were many nice relationships developing, and also amusing, or provocative interactions amongst them all.

For four weeks they’ve been working really hard on practice, anatomy, and philosophy.
Amongst the students there was a very talented photographer, R2. She was daily documenting and producing an amazing album of group classes and everyone’s Asana, she also took a camera with her while going to the beach at Chaweng Noi for sunrise pranayama and swim.

Here’s some photos from her amazing album, which the studio let me share with you,  and by the way - the next Yoga Alliance Certified 200 Hour Teacher Training in Vikasa studio will be taking place September 16 – October 14, 2012.

 Wasn't it amazing?.......  I think it truly was...
