  • Description


    Give a workshop in Varkala, Kerala, India.

    India is known to be a very spiritual place. And so is Varkala, situated in the South of India. As Mariyam arrived almost 5 years ago she immediately felt it and made it her home. Els went to Varkala for a 10-day yoga retreat with Mariyam and two weeks after returning to Belgium she decided she had to go back. Sometimes you just know.

    Now Mariyam and Els are joining each other on a journey to create a beautiful place in Varkala: a Life Mentoring Centre for awareness through the Ethics of Yoga. It is a place for spirituality, inspiration, good vibes, cultural activities, healthy drinks and so much more. We organise workshops & sessions there too. Do you wanted to join us?
