We were incredibly fortunate to take a private meditation class with Ullas in Varkala. One aspect that stood out to us about the class was his emphasis on the spiritual philosophy of meditation. This focus allowed us to explore meditation from a fresh perspective, expanding our understanding and appreciation of the practice.

Ullas's style was engaging, and he accompanied his teachings with a warm smile and wise storytelling. He would pose questions like "who are you?" to prompt introspection and encourage us to contemplate the essence of meditation on a much deeper level. He also shared thought-provoking perspectives on concepts such as the distinction between identity and self, impermanence and eternal, and perception and truth.

Taking this class was an enlightening experience that helped us grasp the "why" behind meditation, rather than just focusing on the "how." Even after our trip ended, the profound insights from Ullas continued to resonate with us and left a lasting impression.

When I saw the sign "Progressive Yoga" on the beautiful cliff, I thought this yoga offer will be to demanding for my condition. One day I met Ullas ji and all my boundaries disappeared. I was impressed by his deep knowledge about life philosophy.

So I started with yoga classes and the gentle way of Ullas ji's Hatha Yoga teaching was perfect for me.
The meditation course, I participated, was transforming my life. Ullas ji's mindful introduction was a great support to go deeper into the practice of meditation.

I also took the chakra balancing session, which was an door opener for realising the fields of energy and how everything is connected.
It was an excellent experience and I highly recommend this holistic teaching for your personal path of healing!

PS. Last not least, try the palm reading. It's fascinating!

I got to know Ullas through the Joga Academy Freiburg/Germany where he also gives lectures.
Ullas activated and balanced my chakras and it did me a lot of good. Also the follow-up treatment and deep meditation was impressive for me. It is an enrichment to get to know Ullas, his methods and his knowledge about yoga.
I can highly recommend this contact.

We were searching for a place to regularly do some yoga and didn’t really know what to expect so we tried one class at Progressive Yoga and ended up finding a good friend, Ullas! He taught us the basics of meditation and yoga through a very holistic perspective. Ullas was always very flexible regarding the times and also always had some new input - in every class he not only provided yoga instructions but also life lessons in a way. If you want to actually understand the concept for yoga instead of just practicing postures you should definitely meet Ullas.

Meditation used to be very intimidating and I never thought I could do it! Taking classes with Ullas is one of the best decisions I made in 2021.

He is very accommodating; I have an overactive mind and cannot do certain breath work, Ullas is helping me quiet down my mind and get into my body with breath.

Classes consist of chanting, pranayama, meditating and beautiful wisdom by our teacher 🙏🏼

I would highly recommend taking classes with him to anyone who would like to get in touch with their inner world 🌎

The best online pranayama & meditation classes I have attended.

Yogacharya Ullas has been a godsend during the lockdown, his online classes have been fantastic! He is very knowledgeable and his patient and humble demeanour have aided greatly. I highly recommend him for both beginners and advanced students.

Ullas is a very talented and down to earth teacher. I have really appreciated his gentle and skillful guidance in the excellent online yoga and meditation classes over the pandemic period. Looking forward to doing some classes with him in person when we can! Thank you Ullas!

Varkala's Hidden Gem

It is said that in every place there hides a treasure only available to those who truly seek to find it.

After 11 months living in Varkala and not really feeling called by any of the commercial yoga schools I met Yogacharya Ullas D Kumar by some incredible synchronisities. He offered a 21 days meditation program, no drop in, no break. He promised I would see results. As someone who struggles to trust, I was surprised to find myself signing up without a thought.

Ullas is an incredibly humble advanced teacher with so much knowledge. During this deeply transformational time together I discovered so much about myself and unlearned just as much.

Ullas's classes are designed to dissolve ego. So, the practice is repetitive and focused. You must be willing to surrender your ideas about how things should be and trust the immense source of ancient knowledge that he is. His classes are for those committed to diving deeper into self-knowledge and who wish to develop a consistent practice to support the expansion of consciousness.

So, if you are ready to challenge yourself and to grow, you will certainly enjoy his classes. This time with Yogacharya was so immensely valuable, I shall forever cherish it.
