Vikara means to change or transform in Sanskrit. Vikara retreats are designed to help people who are already awakening to the reality that life is not just about survival, career building, status, finances, and responsibilities. If you are searching for meaning, joy, and creativity in your life, Vikara retreats will introduce you to a lifestyle that will inspire you to live your life with intention. Vikara combines yoga, meditation, and surfing with delicious quality nutrition and connection to nature to create transformational retreats.
Vikara retreats are praised for their focus on personal attention. The retreats are designed for small groups which make your experience very intimate. The friendships developed on retreat creates a community (meaningful connections with other people healing through shared experiences). The schedule is designed so that you pick and choose what you want to do. The program has many elements to help you feel revitalized, inspired, and relaxed. They also provide many additional services to tailor your experience to suit your specific needs. Vikara retreats start with setting your intention and then work toward helping you to reach your goals. The goal is that you feel at home and allow yourself to be yourself.
