We love our Rooftop Yoga spot above the trees in Varkala and we want as many people to come and experience the magic that happens around our class times as possible. As yogis we strive to be as present as we can during our yoga classes. So what better way to watch the perfect sunset than to be practising? We believe that yoga is best practised around sunrise or sunset and we pick the best teachers to inspire you to practice yoga, whether you’re a beginner or a more seasoned yogi. Music is really important to us and so we make sure we bend and breathe whilst listening to some seriously good tunes. Below you can find all the information you need on how and when to attend a class.

Yoga Passes – Ask us at reception
Along with your yoga class, you are more than welcome to use a beautiful clifftop garden, we have a cafe that is filled with delicious treats…post yoga cake? it’s all about the balance isn’t it.
Plan to arrive a bit early for class (10/15 minutes) so we can get you settled, take payments and have a chat to the teacher for any questions you might have. Classes are all 75 minutes.
We have scheduled a full schedule of classes at a range of times.
We have a weekly yoga timetable running daily (please see below for the timetable) which you are more than welcome to join in on any of the classes. Each of our classes are an ‘all levels’ ability class, feel free to do as much or as little as you can…we’re creatives at Soul & Surf and we like our yoga to be too.
From time to time we like to put on special workshops. Often we hear of cool teachers
passing through our area and we like to invite them to hang out and…perhaps if they have
the energy, to put on a workshop for our guests. We can never really tell when this is going
to happen, but we’ll give you as much notice as we can, so if you’re a keen yogi watch out
for our workshop listings.
To drop into one of any of our yoga classes you can email [email@example.com] or just come along. Once you arrive at Soul & Surf please head straight to reception (the building in front of the gate as you walk in) to pay for your yoga class, You will be given a slip to give to the teacher so she can add you to the class.

We hire our teachers seasonally and this means that sometimes the timetable may be subject to change. If we don’t have a current Yin teacher then we will change the classes to a more restorative slow flow style Vinyasa to make sure you’re still getting your chilled out yoga vibes.
We understand that life doesn’t always run as smoothly as we hope and that sometimes you might be late. If this is the case please understand that the class will have already started and the teacher will be busy unveiling her wisdom upon the students and may not be there to meet you. Please make your way up the stairs and as quietly as you can… join the class. The teacher will approach you when she can. We ask that you clean up after yourself and give your mat a little spray down with the equipment provided and roll it up placing it back in the designated area.
What to bring, what to wear?
We provide mats and bolsters so no need to bring unless you are attached to one and want to. Our studio is really rather cool and fully fitted with fans so feel free to wear leggings or shorts. We would recommend leggings if you’re trying to work on slightly more advanced postures just so you don’t slip around on your skin! But that’s just from our experience. Our venue is fully fitted with a public toilet and free water points to refill your bottle or just to have a glass that you’ll find provided.
Where are we?
There are two main identifiable tourist areas in Varkala North and South Cliff. We are situated on the South Cliff of Varkala the slightly quieter more residential area away from the hustle and bustle. You can walk to us along the beach and it would take about 15 minutes from North Cliff we have our own set of stairs from the beach, just look out for the colourful flags and head up from the cliffside from there. Or you can get a rickshaw and just say “Soul and Surf” to the drivers, everybody knows where we are.
