He assists physically without consent and does arm balances on top of students to entertain himself.
He stands over people's knees in deep folds for no reason.
His class is all about the asanas under the disguise of spirituality. He told me to lose weight in order to achieve a bind, which was anatomically incorrect (I am a teacher myself) and deeply upsetting.
This man should not teach until he does some serious introspection or undertake further trainings to understand human beings beyond his narrow scope.
I knew this man was teaching using his inflated ego instead of the principles of yoga the minute I walked in. I was disheartened to be proven right, particularly after seeing so many positive reviews.
He clearly attracts a crowd of devoted students - which is common with teachers who push students in advanced asanas, so for anyone reading this who wants to get their pincha or whatever : trust me it can be done with kindness and awareness. You will not find that with Joseph.
Avoid.

I’ve had the opportunity to take yoga with Joseph during my stay in Varkala and the experience was amazing. The practice is challenging and he pushed me to go deeper into asanas, but always ensuring that everyone is safe and giving individual attention to all the people in the class according to their bodies and level of practice.
He’s very knowledgeable and have a lot of experience, you can really feel his passion. He made me feel more confident and happy, giving me very valuable tips.
Unfortunately it was a short stay in Varkala, but it will be a honour for me to come back and do the 200 hours course with him and his team.

I’ve had the opportunity to take yoga with both Joseph and his son Joyal, and the experience with both was amazing.
On this trip in particular I had one-on-one classes with Joyal for 2 months (June & July). I came in with a spine injury so was a bit hesitant to practice. Joyal had seen my MRI results and knew exactly how to guide me through my yoga practice while making sure my back did not get worse or become painful.
Classes with him allowed me to deepen my practice, try new asanas while at the same time hold space for me to feel very safe. This was crucial for me It was a try joy to have Joyal be my teacher. He has great knowledge of the human body, yoga anatomy and reads your body in a way that he customizes your classes base on what you need and where you are at and builds from there. His respect and love for the practice shows in every aspect of him leading class. Can’t wait to be back next year! Thank you Pranam Yoga Joseph for having Joyal as one of your team members. ;)

Only for practicing Yoga with Joseph, I will come back to Varkala. I didn't have a lot of experience in yoga and he helped me discover a new world to me. I am now practicing every two days and eager to learn, read and know more. This is how incredible as a teacher he is. He ignites a passion of yoga you never thought you had. Thank you 🌷

I have just finished the course and have come away with so much more than a certificate. I have learned about myself and how to deal with life with a much clearer mind. The teachers are dedicated to their duty and always have time for their students. I feel well prepared to start my own path into becoming a yoga teacher as well as improving my own personal practice. Food and accommodation is great and the center is well located. I could well recommend applying for this course.

Joseph was a fantastic teacher (and very funny!) who could instinctively see where I could move deeper into my practice and helped me find the confidence to do it. I've been teaching a little while now and it was so good to come to a class and be challenged. The other attendees were also very welcoming and encouraging, some of them have been returning to him every year he's so good!

I practice Hatha/Ashtanga and would say his style is Sivananda which coincidentally prepared me brilliantly for my trip to the Sivananda ashram afterwards!

I'd definitely return to Joseph to improve my practice in future visits to Kerala. I left the classes with a lovely inner glow.

Thanks Joseph - and all you other lovely people I met in class! x

Joseph is an incredible teacher I sadly met late during my stay in Varkala. Unlike many drop-in class teachers, he really gives individualized attention to students and accommodates all levels, providing a challenging sequence each day that really improved my practice in a short amount of time. He clearly is very passionate about teaching and seeing students advance. I will definitely come back to train with him and recommend him for advanced and beginning practitioners :)

Yoga with Joseph is one of the most intensive expiriences in my entire 10-years practise. He can guide you to deep abilities of your body. Respecting boundries and giving courge to go further. I definitely recommend visiting his class during your stay in Varkala :)

Best teacher I have been to. His practice contains asanas which are different and challenging he seems to very quickly understand how far to push you and your progression capabilities.
Totally recommend Joseph will go and see him again this year.
