About Kailasam Yoga Class
Kailasam Yoga is owned by Diana Shipp, who has been running yoga holidays here since 2002. She is ably assisted by Sajan, Manager, Padmini, Housekeeper, and the rest of the Kailasam team.
Diana grew up in Brighton, England, studied environmental science and made her career in conservation and sustainable tourism. During this time she was also practicing and studying yoga and began teaching in 1991. Soon her interests in yoga and the spiritual path led her to.
It was in 2000, during a â€˜mature gap yearâ€™ that she signed up for a teacherâ€™s course at an ashram, discovered Kovalam and fell in love with Kerala. When asked by the owners of a small yoga retreat if she would like to buy it, she knew where her future lay.
Diana expanded and transformed the small yoga retreat into Kailasam Yoga. Fourteen years on, and we are going from strength to strength.
Diana now divides her time between Kerala in the winter, running the yoga holidays, and Norfolk, UK in the summer.

SIMPLE BUT COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATION There are eight guest bedrooms, yoga shala, relaxation areas and dining areas, all within a beautiful garden. We can accommodate up to 11 people on site, in single and shared bedrooms, and we also use two or three rooms nearby for the most popular times of the year. All rooms are en-suite – simple but comfortable, individually decorated, with ceiling fans, mosquito nets on windows and over beds, hot showers and western-style toilets. We provide free WiFi for guests’ use.
Upstairs is our lovely dining area where we serve delicious and generous breakfasts. The fare is western-style, fresh and tropical. You can use the kitchen to make yourself a tea, coffee or herb-tea any time, day or night, and we provide complimentary drinking water. The shaded, relaxation roof with its day beds, is a favourite with our guests – great for chilling-out after a massage or catching up with that novel.
