Amazing Yoga with Hari, great teacher, strong, precise, great adjustments and a typical Sivananda style class. The space is small but there are fans and it's cool, it's clean and bright. I stayed at varkala after I went tonight Sivananda ashram. I was there a total of 3 weeks over the few months I spent in south India.... I normally... More

I went to his classes every morning for a couple of weeks, and I thoroughly enjoyed all of them! Each class was different, and quite often you would have a yoga teacher or an advanced practicioner practising next to a person who had never done any yoga before. He always managed to offer everybody what they needed. He also has... More

Haridas is a wonderful teacher with a slow but powerful yoga sequence. He offers beautiful hands on adjustments and gives each student the attention they need to development their practice. As a yoga teacher myself, I'm always on the look out for a teacher who can help development my on practice, and inspire my teaching skills. Haridas did just that!

Me and my friend came directly from an Ashram doing Sivanada yoga with over 50 students in the class and didn't know what to expect from Haridas. But we came to a small and very personal class with only 8 students. Haridas is a great teacher! He helped me to push my boundaries and helped me to improve my yoga... More

Hari revolutionised my yoga practice and made me more confident by comfortably pushing my boundaries. He is a wealth of knowledge and gets you to push yourself and do things that you may not have had the confidence or experience to try in the western world. My asanas became more in alignment than ever before. My strength soared and the... More

I have been doing yoga daily for 25 years and have had many teachers over the years. I was in Varkala for 16 days this winter and went to Haridas's classes at 8am and 4.30pm, pretty much every day. I felt completely sparking afterwards. The class is very varied, and Haridas manages to include things for beginners as well as... More

He managed to insult me, numerous times. Left me feeling useless, as I sat and watched others attempt things I couldn't. I left never wanting to do yoga again.

I have visited Varkala twice and been lucky enough to take yoga classes with Haridas on both occasions. His classes are the best I have ever been to, his knowledge and approach to yoga is inspiring and uplifting. He is able to tailor the class to safely challenge all levels of practitioners without intimidation or leaving anyone bored! I cannot... More
