Siva

Siva's life is totally dedicated to yoga. He has been practicing yoga for more than 10 years and is sharing his knowledge and techniques in Varkala. As a Swami Satyananda disciple, his fascination for the teachings of Patanjali and his love for yoga practice have changed his life completely. He discovered yoga as a way of living, which is the perfect communion between mind, body, and soul. By placing practice within the context of Indian culture and philosophy, Siva's classes are an ever deepening experience of the true tradition of yoga.

Salini

Salini attained her MSc degree in Yoga and philosophy at the University of Chennai and is currently taking her doctoral degree while teaching philosophy classes at the school. In a compassionate and dialogic teaching style, she will guide your self-understanding towards a clear realization of the yoga sutras of Patanjali, of how yoga derived from the Vedic age and how scriptures can benefit your practice.

Anish

Dr. Anish BAMS is an Ayurvedic doctor and he will teach you anatomy classes. Herin you will also discuss about benefits of asanas, how to adress specific problems or what to avoid during that time. Moreover, he will introduce you to the ancient healing science of Ayurveda, which ideally complements the yogic practices.

    Everything. The location was just perfect, the ashram it’s cozy and with a great energy, the teachers are really nice and with a great philosophy knowledgement, amazing trips, really nice food,

    I expected an intermediate vinyasa flow class not a begginer hatha. But apart from that all was good!

    I was aspecting a regular yoga retreat instead what this place gave me is much much more...priceless! Kerala is an amazing place if you like nature, it all sorrunded by sparkling green jungle-looking trees. The accomodation is cosy, super clean and has a fantastic yoga shala on the roof top which share all the energy of the sorrounding nature. The food is absolutely fantastic! The woman who is in charge, Shadi, cooks with the love that just a mum can do. Everything is fresh and light as a yogi diet requires.. just in a bigger portion! Shiva is not only an instructor but a spiritual guide. He is not just concern in teaching you the posture but guiding you trough the fantastic world of yoga. He shares his passion with his student and drives them through the enlightment. This is not a simple yoga retreat.. you will get much more than flexibility and a relax mind.

      In November 2015 I spent a great time in Varkala at Shiva-Rishi-Yoga School. For greeting we found some flowers in our nice and clean room. Our Yoga holidays startet with a puja. That gives a nice atmosphere to the group. The yoga lessons were perfectly explained and instructed. Shiva and Philipp did it with a lot of inspiration and enthusiasm. Very interesting were the philosophy classes, where we learned to understand why yoga works like it works. The guys took us through different kinds of Yoga, such as pranajama (breathing), asanas (physical work out), chakra balancing, mantra chanting. The yoga holidays included some trips through South India. We saw a lot of typical Indian life, ate tasty Indian food and heard many storys about Indian philisophy and culture from Shiva. We had a lot of fun by traveling with public buses and trains. The hotels were different, some with high standard, other really local but with a great view over the mountains (Munnar). One of the highlights was the houseboat trip. So at the end I can say, it was a very enriching time for me and I plan to go back to Shiva Rishi Yoga School in Varkala as soon as possible.

      I did a 200hour Yoga Teacher Training with Siva and I really enjoyed the time! Espcially the Philosophy it let me once more understand that yoga is way more than physical exercises. Also I became very flexible, my body relaxed and mind calm. The various kind of breathing techniques balanced my mind to a higher state of concentration for meditation. I recommend Siva as a good teacher and great Yogi, sharing the acient and secred knowledge with us students.

      It's been an unique experience to study at shiva rishi yoga school. Siva is a very professional and honest teacher who is devoting all his life to yoga and spirituality. Also Madeleine takes very good care of the guests, staff and hotel which contributes to the lovely atmosphere.
