Welcome to Vanakkam Yoga School

Dear All,

As you might know, Master Sudhakar is making an exciting shift in his yogic path in order to dedicate his efforts more closely to his students. Therefore, he has left Pure Yoga, where he created Dheesan Yoga, and will be actively advancing his teachings entirely under his own direction.

As a part of this change, he has established the Vanakkam Yoga School.  This will clarify that his goal is not to create a new "style" of yoga, but instead to develop an international school of yoga under the renowned, creative guidance of Master Sudhakar that equips practitioners with a deep understanding of hatha postures and yogic philosophy.

Vanakkam Yoga School latest events, recent news, and articles about Yoga philosophy and Hatha Yoga practice can be found below:

Dear All, This world revolves around a simple logic, a simple principle called “Sharing”. It starts from the day we were born in this world – the first food was shared from our mother, the first breath was shared from the existing atmosphere. All these have provided us the basis of life. Sharing is the greatest act of this mankind and without sharing, life goes to a standstill. You might be wondering why I am detailing this to you. Yes, it is for a noble cause.
