Excellent ashtanga teacher

Dr. Kamaraj is one of the best yoga teachers I have had. I learned so much about improving my practice. He also offers amazing therapeutic massages.

I had the pleasure of joining one of the leading London-based yoga teachers in his retreat in Kerala in January. Unfortunately, Yoga Mandala, the business under which Kamraji operates, was organising the retreat for over 30 people coming from London. Kamraji, along with an Irish lady named Denise , were the 2 people in charge of organising the rooms and... More

Just returned from TWO fabulous retreats organised by Dr Kamaraj and his team. The yoga sessions were energetic and uplifting. I felt like my practice really improved under Dr Kamaraj's guidance and expertise. I also had an integrated healing massage with him which was the perfect antidote to sooth my body after yoga class. He also helped to arrange other... More

A young Dr Kamaraj calls himself a "healer" and not a businessman. However, he managed to be in charge of organising our yoga retreat for 30+ people coming from London. Upon receiving the info about the retreat, we booked a cheapest standard room for £60 (for 2 people) per night. Paying £60 per night in India, we were expecting an... More

What a great start to the day...meditation and morning yoga on a rooftop, surrounded by coconut trees, with the sound of the waves in the distance. Each class is the same but different and you leave learning something new every day. I tried other yoga places but this was the one for me.

I am happy to have been in sessions with Dr Kamarsj. As a stiff beginner the beautiful morning ceremonies and meditations was a perfect wake up before an hour of hatha yoga. Instructions and mantras are voiced in pleasant ways and support is freely given. A refreshing relaxing and valuable training and meditation on the roof. Dr Kamarsj is a... More
