Hari is a wonderful yoga teacher who is very in tune with everyone's capabilities in the class. I attended yoga classes with him for three days prior to going to the Sivananda Ashram in Neyer dam and then again for one week after a week at the Ashram. I found Hari’s attentive teaching style and small class size much more... More

My friend and I had travelled through Kerala going to several yoga places and we remember Haridas' classes fondly. We bought an 8 class pack for our week long stay in varkala and enjoyed each class. Haridas is an experienced shivananda instructor who pushes you to achieve your best. I felt I progressed in my yoga more in that week... More

A complete novice two weeks ago, this couldn’t have been a better introduction to yoga. The classes are small enough that you receive personal attention, and everyone from the young and experienced to the old beginners gets a session which is suited to their abilities. The exercises are also varied so you don’t get bored. I don’t know how he... More

I tried 2 yoga instructors on Varkala cliff before Harid: his quality is evident immediately. In a class which might include first-timers and experienced students, all would come out feeling they'd had a very good session, which is testament to his great experience and teaching skills. Also, the classes take place in a proper, enclosed, yoga hall which is cool,... More

Haridas gave excellent yoga classes at very good value. You have a choisce of going to the morning or the afternoon, or both. Popular classes with other tourists.

Yoga with Haridas is the best yoga I could find along the cliff. His classes are very relaxing for body, mind and soul. The yogahall at Green Palace is very clean and has a good atmosphere. No matter whether you are beginner or advanced, Haridas is taking good care that one does the asanas well and he is correcting the... More

There was an awful yoga class in this hotel ! Unprofessional yoga teacher and very few asanas for the whole lesson. Every 10 minutes shavasana - what for?! I had pain in my back for 3 days after this so called 'yoga' I do not recommend to go there for excercises.

I regulary joined Haridas yoga classes from December 2013 to March 2014. The classes are very good and during my time in Varkala I didn't feel the need to look for something else. Haridas has a very nice way of instructing, he helps with adjustments and all levels are welcome to his classes. The classes are proffessional and have a... More
