About
Namaste and 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 aspects 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 school offers 100, 200, 300 hours Yoga Teacher Training Courses registered with Yoga Alliance USA and Ayurveda Courses.

Being at Adishakti Yogashala was a life changing experience. Having gone through a period of emotional and physical unease and reaching a cross roads in my life, I searched for a yoga retreat and came across this one. It seemed exceptional value for money compared to prices in the UK, and other retreats in India. And having spent 10 days there, I cannot recommend it highly enough. There was a beautiful energy of warmth, peace and kindness. The teachers Manoj and Anil are experts, and teach in minute detail each yoga position. They are amazing. The food lovingly prepared, so healthy and delicious, the location Varkala was beautiful and the retreat just 10 minutes walk to the beach. The accommodation; bedroom and bathroom was simple and comfortable. Kayaking with Binoy along the backwaters, was awesome, a place of serenity watching the sun set And to top it all, a relaxing Ayurvedic massage each night from Manju. It was truly a transformative and healing experience, thank you everyone at Pachamama Adishakti Yogashala 🙏

I just finished from a 300 hours yoga TTC at Adishakti in February 2022. I went into the course with the mindset of having a month to myself for inner exploration. It's been that and so much more. I feel very contented, which is a state I wish for everyone to enjoy.

Adishakti offers a well rounded yoga TTC. By this I mean the school and its teachers truly address, breathe and live all the limbs of yoga. And I got to join in for a month!

I come out of the TTC with a changed view on what yoga is and what benefits a regular practice can bring. Adishakti has taught and let me experience the healing effects of yoga on the mind and body.

The quality of the teachers is very high. Each and every one of them is an expert in their field (anatomy, ayurveda, alignment & adjustment, mudras, pranayama, asanas, philosophy, cooking, massage) and they do not shy away from generously sharing their passion and wealth of knowledge. Even the most challenging topics were shared in such a way that I could absorb and they'd help me to grasp complicated concepts by clarifying in layman's terms whenever I needed it. I haven't missed a single class, simply because I was riveted and didn't want to miss out!

The school is located in a quiet location and once you step inside the yoga shala you immediately feel close to nature with a view on swaying palm tree tops and the sounds of singing birds. Being close to the sea and the beach, it provides a peaceful environment that is most conducive to yoga practice and learning.

My mind and body were nurtured with lovingly prepared healthy food. Always served with a smile.
The room was clean, simple and comfortable - it's all you need.

I highly recommend this school, its level of teachings is superb and you'll be blessed to experience such a gift of self development.

I went there for a yoga retreat and it was an amazing stay. The teachers are great and everyone here was nice and helpful at any time.
The quality of the classes is above expectations: I learnt a lot on mudras, pranayama with Manoj and on the other side on asanas with Anil.

Go there if you can!!! Adishakti team welcomed me and my young child in their soulful heaven as if we had always been family. They gave me the opportunity to dive deep into the holistic practice of yoga and ayurveda, led by amazingly skillful and friendly trainers, surrounded by a vibrant community of locals and internationals for an intense and fulfilling retreat that we will never forget!

I have stayed at Pachamama resort during my 200hr teacher training course in ADISHAKTI YOGASHALA. Am lucky that I found this place... I have learnt a lot, the teachers were great and patient with us, the food they serve is really healthy and nutritious. It was like a detox for me. Everyone should experience this once in a while. I am looking forward to doing a 300hr ttc next year.

It was my absolute good fortune and faith that brought me to this place like divine intervention. I had previous exposure to what was possible but the teachers, guru's and community here allowed me to realize the capacity of my own capabilities. They took me in under their wing and provided me with the confidence and tools necessary for personal growth and discipline. With their caring guidance and encouragement I am able to see the forest through the trees and know there is a bright future ahead waiting for me. This realization would remain unknown without their love and support. I am truly thankful for the time and opportunity I have spent here and hope to inspire anyone else out there looking for a change to come here and experience the same.
