Why everyone loves this retreat

“The WO Vikasa Yoga Retreat was pure bliss!  It was a pivotal point in the expansion of both my yoga practice and spiritual depth.  Dustin and Nova shared an authentic expression of themselves and provided a safe and sacred space for vulnerability and growth.  A truly magical retreat on all levels which empowered me to turn my focus inwards and unlock the medicine I needed to forgive myself, love myself and rise above my greatest fears!” – Yvonne

“Dustin and Nova ran the week brilliantly – their passion for yoga, people,  life and each other was truely inspirational – not only did we share two beautiful yoga practises daily (including some acro yoga which was so much fun), we got to play games, ‘dance like no one was watching’ (making me feel like a teenager again!) we focused on helping to appreciate the amazing things that life has to offer with daily journaling and we also learnt to look inwards and appreciate and love ourselves more. We had beach play daily,  the most beautiful organic foods imaginable, daily massages or facials if you wished but, the beauty of it all is that you could join into everything or just spend time alone in the most beautiful location when needed or just read around the pool overlooking the ocean!” – Robyn

“Thank you so much for an awesome retreat. It was beautiful and I received a lot more than yoga! Absolutely stunning environment, world class healthy food, and wonderful to share it with so many beautiful people all in an authentic space in their lives – very refreshing – none of the usual small talk! Well done Nova for moving everyone right past the small talk phase! Just such a beautiful place to just ‘be’.

As a busy working mother it was a personal challenge making the commitment to leave my family behind but was definitely the right decision. So many positives, endless yoga, endless massages, endless me time and endless Instagramable moments.” – Emily W

“I cannot recommend this retreat more! Nova and Dustin took us on a journey both as a group and individually. Before this retreat I very much considered myself a beginner but my level of practice did not impact my experience at all and everyday I showed up to the mat wanting more!

This retreat had something for everyone! Meditation, chanting, arco yoga, workshops, tune up balls (which are life changing!), journaling, activities and confidence boosters as well as down time to lay by the pool or get a massage so it really did suit everyone!” – Nikky

If you’re looking for typical comforts, then we recommend waking up in a Lotus Pad or if you’re looking for an amazing view from your bed you cannot go past the Lotus Pad Plus.

YOGA CAVE PLUS

SINGLE BED

Rest and recenter in a compact yet calming space that combines comfort and simplicity. Restful tones and natural materials channel through the room drawing your thoughts inwards, and your gaze outwards to the sea and meandering coastline. Caves are modest in size with a single bed designed for solo journeys. The space may be small but you won’t feel caved-in as sweeping ocean views give a sense of infinity. Each Yoga Cave is climate controlled and has access to the shared but clean bathroom facilities right next to the block. Bathrobes and basic toiletries are provided.

We often walk down together as a group in the mornings to watch the sun rise on the rocks  and swim in the crystal clear water of the small beach on Vikasa. Other beautiful beaches around the island can be reached by taxi.

Can you accommodate my special diet?

We sure can! Vikasa Life Cafe is OMazing and can definitely accommodate your dietary requirements. The food is so delicious and one of the main reasons we go back to Vikasa year after year. Both the breakfasts and dinners are fresh, local produce, exquisitely prepared, health conscious and largely vegetarian with some pescatarian options.

If you do have any requirements or allergies please be sure to inform us before the retreat.
