“Just Wonderful - Vasudev is a truly a great teacher.”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Vasudev is a truly a great teacher.

I took the basic class with him and appreciated the way he slowly walks you through everything logically - explaining both; the technique and the benefit to each move as you go.

“Yoga for all”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

I enrolled for a beginners course after a trial lesson and came away at the end of a week with determination to find time when I get back to England. Vasudev is a great teacher, ensuring we executed the Asanas properly. His accomplice Gayatri was at hand to assist.

“Solid Yoga Class !”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

After trying a few disappointing yoga options in Varkala it was great to come across Vasu's (Yoga Varkala) well attended classes at the Bohemian Masala Resort (northern end of the Cliffs).

The yoga is Hatha, based on a varied and less strict Sivananda Yoga style. It would suite all skill levels of yoga student from newby to experienced. There is range for some personal variation in some of the poses for more experienced practitioners (i.e. scorpion vs headstand etc). Having stayed in Varkalla a month Vasu's classes were always well attended - 15 to 20 students.

For the absolute beginner there is also a multi day Beginner's course starting each Thursday after the open class (again seemed to be well attended).

“Yoga yogi”
Reviewed 11 November 2011

Having enjoyed Vasu's classes for the past 5 years, in the start at the New Haven roof top but now relocated to a lovely lush garden at the Bohemian Masala.
Great space for everyone, beginner classes if you want to know some basics to get you started off right. And open classes for those who are trained. Vasu is one of the best teachers I have come across and everyone who comes really enjoy the classes no matter what level you are at. And the mans got some humour.
