Yoga retreat with Chandra
Feb 2020 • Solo
I have just attended an 8 days yoga retreat with Chandra. What a great experience!

Chandra is such a kind, funny and caring person! He definately knows what he is doing teaching yoga and guiding you through meditations and pranayama.

I was having some problems with my shoulder arriving at the retreat, so Chandra treated me with acupuncture and massage everyday (extra cost) - he is very talented in everything he does.

I can highly recommend him as a teacher, therapist and just very nice company.

Swami was teaching yoga philosophy, meditation and chanting. He is a very wise man, such a strong personality and just a wonderful guide. Thank you!

The yoga school is located away from the cliff. It is not fancy, but very quiet, peaceful and simpel and basic.

I stayed at Oceanic Beach Residency, 7 minutes walk by the cliff from the yoga school. Great acommodation, friendly staff and great food.

If you want a true and authetic experince with yoga and everything that goes with it then do classes with Chandra! You will not regret it!

Excellent yoga and shiatsu!!
Feb 2020 • Solo
Chandra is a very gifted shiatsu practitioner. I saw the sign outside and decided to pay him a visit. I've had numerous sports injuries and carry a lot of tension which have left my body very unbalanced. He was able to identify my worst areas and tailored his techniques accordingly.

He also has lovely energy so I decided to attend his hatha (sivananda) yoga class. His class is very good for inflexible westerners and he was able to help students get into the best position for them despite physical limitations. Highly recommend.

Yoga and Shiatsu.
Jan 2020
We followed daily yoga class with Chandra. His class is extremely good balanced, a mix of Pranayama, asana's and relaxing. Also the location is very relaxing in a quiet garden.
We also took a series of 10 Shiatsu massages. After this, we could feel that our body changed.
Chandra is a real professional. We can strongly recomment him.
Also a lot of other treatments and yoga teacher training courses are available.

Body and mind reset and refreshed

I attended Chandra's yoga class for a 7 day duration as part of an organised yoga and meditation retreat. His class was very well attended as he is very popular in Varkala. The yoga was very well structured with pranayama, warm up exercises, Sun Salutations and then asanas, meditation. I loved Chandra's teaching style, he brings a warm sense of humour to the classes, and is very vigilant to people's postures. I also signed up to 5 days of shiatsu and 2 days of acupuncture and these were really beneficial, I have sore shoulders due to work, and was having issues with my left hip. I had also had a very stressful time recently. The combination of the treatments and the yoga have helped me feel rebalanced physically, emotionally and spiritually. Since returning to the UK 6 days ago, I have felt calmer, clearer, and have now set up a daily morning practice so I can retain all the good vibes that have been created. Totally recommended Chandra's school.

Best yoga and massage
Dec 2019 • Solo
I went to see Chandra as I had hurt my back before arriving in India and it was getting worse. I wasnt enjoying my holiday as much as i had hoped due to this. After 2 sessions i could notice an immediate improvement, enough that I could attend classes. I decided to have a course of treatments as I was feeling so much better and as well as resolving my back issue Chandra also managed to rectify some other mobility issues I had been having.
I continued to go to his classes every morning and really enjoyed them. Though I have practiced regularly for many years I still learned a lot in his classes, especially how to deal with any more potential injuries. The classes were fun, but always professional, Chandra always explained everything clearly and I felt that they were suitable for a beginner uptown someone quite experienced. Chandra seems to assess everyone's capabilities quite quickly and offers guidance and modifications.
I will definitely return next December for both yoga and massage, the two compliment each other and I felt amazing by the time I left.

Best Yoga TTC in Kerala!

I did my yoga teacher training with Chandra last month and it was an amazing experience! I learned so much from him and love his style of teaching. I have grown so much as a person. Chandra is warm and light hearted and so pleasant to be around. I couldn’t recommend this course enough. We had beautiful Ceremonies together with mantra chanting and every class was extremely high quality. 10/10!

Yoga TTC
Nov 2019 • Solo
I arrived in Varkala at the beginning of November and my friend and I decided to try out a yoga class. We chose Chandra’s as he had really good reviews and it is in a very good location. After the first class Chandra came and spoke with me and he had noticed that I had scoliosis (curvature of the spine) which I highly appreciated, as this meant that he pays close attention to all of his students. Chandra offered to give me some further lessons and chiropractic sessions which turned into me deciding to take the 200 hour Teacher Training Course for the month. I have now successfully completed the course and learned so much about yoga so that not only can I now do the asanas alone and strengthen my spine but I can now teach other people. I am also more aware of myself mentally as yoga encompasses many meditative, pranayama and philosophical components of yoga which are encompassed within the TTC too!
Overall, I would highly recommend the yoga TTC to anybody who has even the slightest interest in yoga, whether it be for becoming a teacher or bettering your personal practice. I can also really recommend Chandra’s chiropractic sessions!
The location of the the TTC is also fantastic with a beach view and there are plenty of delicious food options nearby.
Thanks Chandra, I will be back soon!

Best yoga in Varkala

Chandra is a great teacher, with 15 years experience. He really knows how to make newbies to LOVE yoga, which makes him a really execptional man to learn from. I first met him 13 years ago, and finally came back to practice with him again. Me and my husband felt completely different after only 10 lessons, much more healthy and flexible and happy!
