This is the right place if you are looking for a great Yoga experience in a peaceful surrounding with lovely people and good vibes. Hari and his team made us feel at home with delicious and healthy food, inspiring talks, meditation, breathing exercises and of course Yoga. We enjoyed it to the fullest.

Thank you so much to Hari for having me and my friends at his yogahaus! It was a brilliant experience. Hari is lovely, as is everyone who works there. As yoga beginners, he didn't make us feel pressure if we weren't sure and we got to know the asanas well. The food is amazing too, as are the bedrooms! Nice walk to Varkala beach and all the cliff side restaurants and cafes.

When we were there Hari mentioned he's having an issue with his website if anyone is planning on booking - use the EMAIL address! You'll find it on his website.

Thank you so much Hari for a great experience xx

I first booked 6 nights at Sharangati, but was so happy with everything they offered so I extended my stay for 7 nights! I appreciated Hari the kindness and humor. You always feel welcome in this place. Nice clean rooms, good food and nice staff. Nice community among all the guests as we always gathered in the garden in a relaxed way and ate breakfast and lunch. Very good yoga that everyone could participate in because they also offer coahing classes for beginners. Will be happy to Sharangati Yoga House. Awesome Thanks!!

I stayed at Sharanagati Yogahaus for a couple of nights with a friend in November 2016. It was great! Hari was very polite in our initial emails and the reservation process was easy. The room we had was lovely and clean, and the grounds were peaceful, lush and beautiful with lots of trees.

Yoga was amazing! In the morning, we woke up to incense everywhere which was really nice. We started at 7am with breathing and meditation, then at 8am we had an introductory two-hour yoga class. My friend and I were beginners in yoga so Hari was kind enough to dedicate one of his teachers to help us ramp up. At 10am, after 3 very relaxing hours, we had breakfast (fresh fruit and porridge), and tea, in a communal setting. I really enjoyed that aspect of sitting down with fellow travelers/yoga enthusiasts, sharing a meal and exchanging experiences.

We then had free time until lunch, so we walked down to the Black Beach. It’s an easy 5-minute walk to the ocean from the yogahaus. The black-sand beach was very beautiful, although the waves were quite big and we got wiped out by a few. Major bonus for me was that that beach was not touristy and was pretty empty. There’s also some dramatic cliffs that you can walk on to get to the more touristy part, and there’s a gazillion waterfront restaurants on the cliff. My shot out to the very first one you’ll encounter (can’t remember the name, but it had 3-4 tables down below) – it had a mind-blowing fish curry (“my grandma’s recipe” said the cook).

There’s lunch included, and then in the afternoon you do a couple more hours of yoga, which was also very nice.

After a couple of days of this, we left Varkala refreshed and rejuvenated. I've been doing yoga every day since!

Only warning - we got there late at 1AM and the rickshaw driver struggled to find the place in the dark. We were lucky that we had the night watchman's cell phone number and the rickshaw driver was able to call him and figure things out. If you're coming late, make sure you have that!

Ah, second warning – take lots of mosquito repellant and use it without fear. Varkala has tons of mosquitos and they were very annoying. Not anything particular to Sharanagati per say, just to the entire area LOL!

We had a great week with hari at sharanagati, with 2 sessions daily + mediation and pranayama in the lovely setting of the yogahouse. Meals were fantastic and plentiful, teaching style was relaxed and there is an optional coaching class for specific pointers and assistance with asanas.

Great location mins from black beach and the cliff, would love to stay a lot longer

Room tip: rooms with balcony are great and airy
