WELCOME TO SHIVA RISHI YOGA SCHOOL IN KERALA

Only when mind is focused in its subtlest unit, we can realize our true self and the ultimate aim of yoga is accomplished. With age 15, I used to sit at a Shiva temple near my home in Kerala or went into the jungle for meditation and started to develop a sincere & deep devotion to God Shiva. Wishing from my heart to share this devotion with other beings, I was developing yoga techniques throughout the last 12 years and teach classes in Kerala and Dharamsala to make them accessible for everyone, adapted to your level of experience and flexibility. Whether you are new on the path of yoga and self-discovery or are looking to deepen your existing practice, I like to take you and your understanding of the true principles of yoga and conscious living to the next level. The yoga school is situated in Varkala, Kerala between palm trees and close to the beach. On this website you will find all information about the yoga teacher training (ttc) yoga classes, retreats, yoga travels through Kerala and ayurveda courses. Shiva Rishi Yoga Kerala is a member of Yoga Alliance which sets the Yoga Teacher Training standarts and approves the certificate that enables you to work as a yoga teacher worldwide.

Do i need to be advance in yoga for taking a Teachers training?

Teachers training is very intense, you will have to practice Asanas 2hrs twice a day, morning and evening, so you need to be dedicated and fit to follow the routine. Some students were beginners and they did very well.

What type of yoga are you teachings?

We focus on traditional yoga, such as Hatha yoga and Vinyasa flow, shiva has developed his own style, introducing mantra with the breathing. We follow ancient techniques according to Patanjali philosophy. We believe that yoga is more than bending and stretching. Yoga is the path of total transformation, purification of negatives tendencies through self inquiries.
