    Took 3 old favourite items of clothing - 2 tops and a dress - to be be made up in fabrics selected from Asparagus. I chose 2 plain khaki cotton and a hand print Keralan cotton, and was very happy with the results. One top in particular I absolutely love - its an identical replacement for a much loved garment, and has been tweaked in size just where needed. Likewise the dress is super, a copy with improvements (larger pockets!) So, just brilliant if you know exactly what you would like, and such good value compared to home.

    A small and well maintained aquarium. They have a good collection of fish breeds. It is situated closer to the Edava beach.

    This place is personal in a good way. The doctor takes his time, we had many inspiring talks....i got a lot of concret help and herbal medicines.... and the man who gave me treatments was very skilled and professional...overall a really good experience.

    I choose to stay at the nearby hotel wich is situated on the center bayroad of Varkala ....nice but a little bit noisy at times so for those who want it more quiet my recomendation is to take treatments at rhe center and sleep at a calmer place ...Thankyou

    Would given a sixth star if I could. Our experience was above expectations. All the people working there are caring, skilled and easy to communicate with. I felt understood and heard and underwent a 21 days program tailored for us after a thorough consultation. In addition to wonderful treatments, we were also given ayurvedic medicine, dietary instructions and clear advice on necessary lifestyle changes. I always felt them caring and fully invested in my well being, and never like a business. I therefore, happily recommend anyone to pay these a visit. The massage I got today was the best I ever got. Would most certainly come back here again. Wishing then all the best 🌿❤️

    We had a truly great experience staying in this place, it’s located in the beautiful green garden, very quiet and relaxing place. It was our first time here and we were amazed by hospitality of hosts Vishnu and Sruthy. They are both so sweet and made us feel like a home here. We stayed for around 3 weeks and it was hard to leave from this place. Also did the Aurvedic treatment for 1 week. It’s so such stress relief and relaxed feeling after that. You will be like a new person. Doctor Sruthy is very professional and knowledgeable. We will definitely come back here and have very warm and beautiful memories from this place. 🥰

    Loved the great learning experience at Rama School of yoga! I came all the way from New York in the hope of changing the quality of my life by doing the YTTC and to become a yoga teacher in the future. The school is not only the stepping stone for my yoga teacher journey, it also boosted my confidence to start teaching yoga to others after I taught my first ashtanga primary series class as a part of teacher training exam on the last day. Anyone aspiring to become a yoga teacher; Rama school of yoga is a great start for you future endeavor. It gives you a solid foundation about yoga including yoga philosophy, anatomy, methodology and the practice. The course fee is more than fair for the facilities and learning experience they offer. Thanks to all the teachers and kitchen staff.

    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. ;)

    This is my 3rd year staying at the Green Palace where I have been doing daily yoga classes with Haridas. He is a lovely kind man and an ex excellent teacher. His classes are suitable for any level as he adapts each class to the level, I am not very flexible or strong so I do different poses for my ability, whilst others of more advanced levels do theirs. I can only highly recommend anyone visiting Varkala, go to his class. Thank you Haridas for all you have helped me with.

    We totally endorse all of the previous reviews. We were not pressurised at all to make any purchases but when we asked for advice, it was beautifully presented and crystalline clear.

    We. Made some fantastic purchases at fixed prices - bliss.

    The whole experience was very positive. This shop sells high quality products and the owner is charming. We had a great discussion about the world, business and technology as well!

    If you only want rubbish souvenirs then the beach is a better bet. For high quality, Shalimar is a must.
