Walking into Vasudev's yoga shala early in the morning before the cliff wakes up is magical. Tall coconut palms and banana trees surround the beautiful, large, open shala. Vasudev's calm presence and warm smile greet you as you arrive, and the peaceful atmosphere speaks of silence and relaxation. As you lay down to wait for the class to start, your... More

I thought Vasudev was a good teacher and I enjoyed his classes. It's in a nice location down a path surrounded by plants and a covered platform with sari fabric on the ceiling. The intermediate class at 8am follows a sivananda basis with variations, plus some breathing exercises at the end and some short pieces of meditation. Vasudev will also... More

Awful man!!! I took some yoga lessons with my younger sister (19) at "Dr" Kamaraj's place. At first i thought him to be a nice and good teacher and trusted him when he advised my sister to have a back massage since she "carries tension in one side of her body". He later took advantage of that trust while giving... More

I have just returned from my first visit to see Vasu in his home country as I have been to two retreats with him in the UK. Vasu's yoga class is the complete experience, not just the asanas but breathing and relaxation with meditation also play a big part in his intermediate drop-in lessons. So different from so many yoga... More

Just release your tension on the mat and a special journey will start. Vasu Dev is leading you to a better contact with your body, and that brings a good feeling to your mind. In just a few days you feel you are coming out of usual worrys. Your body is smooth and awake. The teaching I got last year... More

During our stay in Varkala, we were looking for a good Yoga class and someone recommended Vasu Dev. Even though, it was off-season, we were lucky enough that Vasu decided to teach my sister and I. The best thing that could happen to us! Being only the two of us, we very much enjoyed the morning classes, that are intense... More

Vasu is a very patient and inspirational teacher. I have come to Varkala for the past two years and also try to attend the classes and workshops he does in UK. The beginners classes cater for all levels and the early morning sessions can be adjusted for specific needs and levels of ability. Highly recommended.
