This was my first yoga retreat and I savoured every moment. Hari is a warm and caring instructor interesed in making sure that you get the most out of the Shivananda practice. I would call it simple but mindful yoga. Perfect. Hari does the most beautiful chants before and after the practice and I still hear his beautiful voice in... More

I had the most fantastic 2 weeks stay in Sharanagati over Christmas/New Year. It's a really special place with some of the best features of an Ashram but with far more flexibility, definitely the best food in Varkala and it's just a 5 mins walk to the beach. Hari is is a really great host and teacher and takes great... More

All these reviews already say all i could think of and more, but i will add that you can trust every positive and complimentary word that has been said. I went to Sharanagati on my own and i had the most amazing stay there. Hari was so warm and welcoming and as down to earth and genuine a yogi as... More

Having traveled to many place before, this is the first time I experienced what a true vacation is: completely disconnecting from the rush of the real world and truly catching ‘your’ breath. It is the perfect combination of nature, spiritual yoga lessons, delicious and freshly cooked food, great people and a calm, loving atmosphere. The Sharanagati Yogahaus is one of... More

I stayed at the Sharangati Yogahaus for 6 days and enjoyed the whole experience. Hari is a great host and takes great care to provide the right ambience. The food is excellent, and plentiful. The yoga is pitched at just the right level for each individual. All in all, perfect, I can't recommend it enough.

We only had 3 days at the Yogahaus, but they were great. Hari is a lovely person, being kind, caring and amusing too. He is clearly a very experienced and knowledgable yogi and meditator, with great wisdom. Like many wise people, he is unassuming and has had an interesting life, which has taken him to where he is now. At... More

My friend and I stayed at this yoga house a few years ago and now that I'm back into yoga I thought I'd write a review. Hari the yoga teacher is such a lovely person and he really made our stay amazing. The yoga was great, the food was great, the guesthouse is beautiful and surrounded by Palm trees and... More

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said below. I took 3 months of work with the intention of escaping London life to practise yoga, meditate, eat healthily and find some kind of spiritual enlightenment. My stay at the Yogahaus under the guidance of Hari gave me all of this in abundance. Originally booked for a week I... More

What a magical retreat Hari has created. I arrived at Sharanagati Yogahaus tired and chaotic in thought and as I walked through the gates I instantly felt calmer. Hari has fostered a tranquil secret paradise on what can be an otherwise quite a hectic North cliff. The garden is stunning, banana trees set against bright blue skys, a yoga hall,... More

Staying at Sharanagati for six days was an amazing experience - a complete restart to the system - leaving us with a sense of calm and vitality that travelled all the way back to london with us and even managed to eliminate our post-holiday blues... :) Staying with Hari - a generous, warm, gentle, funny spirit, combined with excellent teaching...
