I spent one week at Hariharalaya in May/June 2012. I had been searching for a yoga/detox retreat in Asia for quite a while but was finding they were all rather expensive and quite full on.
It was only once that I arrived in Cambodia that I stumbled across the Hariharalaya website and I am so glad I did.
The energy and calmess of Hari was immediate from the moment I arrived. It provided everything I was looking for. The team at Hari are amazing.. Joel is one of a kind, so knowledgeable and giving of that knowledge and he radiates a sense of peace that is amazing to be around.
I took part in a 3 day coconut and palm juice fast which I was a little apprehensive about to begin with..... (If I can do it anyone can)...... I did it, loved it and felt amazing after it. Although I not long ago completed this detox I am looking at doing another one soon as I felt so good after doing it. The food at Hari was to die for (I can't wait for the cookbook to come out).
I have only positive comments and memories about my experieces as this truely unique and magical place.
