Namaste dear yogis. Welcome to Varkala, the absolute kingdom of Ayurveda. We are nestled in a palm tree jungle bordered by one of the most stunning cliff beaches in the world. We aim to support your personal journey with daily yoga classes, Ayurveda therapies and spiritual ceremonies, all dedicated to your happiness.
Adishakti offers an authentic blend of Ayurveda and Yoga courses for beginners and advanced practitioners. We focus on the traditional parts of yoga. We feel that the yogic culture is losing its limbs. We empower traditional practices (bandhas, kryias, mudras lifestyle, yamas, niamas) and we believe that yoga and Ayurveda are like sisters and are linked together. This is the reason why our courses are based on this combo. We teach and share with our students how to live and build-up the ayurvedic lifestyle with authentic knowledge and wisdom.
The best school
I had a great experience with Adishakti Yogashala.
Amazing teachers, interesting classes, beautiful roof top yoga hall, good clean rooms and delicious vegetarian food!
The place is good, close to the beach but quite and cozy, you can take different kind of Ayurvedic treatment here also and do your self study in the library.
But the most important thing is the learning process and teachers. I really enjoyed all classes and have learned so much about traditional 8 limbs of yoga, ayrveda, philosophy and much more. I deepened my asana practice and understanding of what the real yoga is.
Looking forward to come back and study more!
I Made the Best Choice
During the early months of 2019 i was searching for a Yoga Teacher Training Course in South India.
I had met Manoj in Varkala during one of his drop-in classes and was engaged in his teaching style and content – immediately presented with his wealth of knowledge of asanas and pranayama.
3 weeks later i returned to Varkala to embark upon Adishakti Yogashala’s first 200 Hour YTTC with Manoj, Pankaj and Anil, i can honestly, with complete sincerity say, i dont think ive ever made a better choice in all my life. A truly unique experience, where each day i was dumbfounded by the depth of seemingly unlimited knowledge all the teachers possessed.
As we were a small class, we had the privilege of the full attention of the teachers; always answering our many questions, never feeling ignored, and always well looked after.
I’ve felt overwhelmingly grateful to have found this school, embracing as much yogic knowledge as i could absorb and returning to the UK with a new understanding of what yoga is. i left with an even stronger desire to teach than when i began. now i feel i have the confidence to take steps towards that goal.
Thank you to everyone involved at Adishakti Yogaslaha! <3 Id highly recommend this school to anyone interested in any yogic practise - from single classes to YTTCs 🙂
I can genuinely say, that they are the best <3 Amazing teachers, who pour their heart into their teaching. I've taken all of their classes and I cannot wait for more.
Wonderful teachers and learning experience.
I tried both hatha and ashtanga yoga and every time I enjoyed so much. Great teacher as always trying to achieve new moves. Thanks for everything I’ll be there as much as I can!
