I would highly recommend going to yoga with Kamaraj if you are in Varkala. What an amazing teacher & person. You won't be disappointed. I also had several Thai massages with him which along with the yoga really helped my flexibility. Kamaraj is doing great charity work to help villages in Tamil Nadu. Some of his classes are donation based.... More

I spent several days when I first arrived in varkala looking for a vinyasa yoga class. There are so many yoga studios here and it can be overwhelming which one to attend but almost all offer ashtanga or hatha style practice. I am overjoyed to have found Yog Mandala and Dr K studio. He is an amazing teacher and has... More

Everyone can find there place in Kams class, from beginners to yoga teachers. Unlike many other places around here, it doesn't feel like the tourists are being taken advantage... More

I had the pleasure of joining one of the leading London-based yoga teachers in his retreat in Kerala in January. Unfortunately, Yoga Mandala, the business under which Kamraji operates, was organising the retreat for over 30 people coming from London. Kamraji, along with an Irish lady named Denise , were the 2 people in charge of organising the rooms and... More

Just returned from TWO fabulous retreats organised by Dr Kamaraj and his team. The yoga sessions were energetic and uplifting. I felt like my practice really improved under Dr Kamaraj's guidance and expertise. I also had an integrated healing massage with him which was the perfect antidote to sooth my body after yoga class. He also helped to arrange other... More

A young Dr Kamaraj calls himself a "healer" and not a businessman. However, he managed to be in charge of organising our yoga retreat for 30+ people coming from London. Upon receiving the info about the retreat, we booked a cheapest standard room for £60 (for 2 people) per night. Paying £60 per night in India, we were expecting an... More
