Great place to do yoga and to relax. Hari is a fantastic teacher, food is very good and rooms are nice and clean. Everything surounded by a nice garden and close to the cliff. I just can highly recommend this place!

Getting back to basics at this retreat allowed me to reconnect with myself and my own yoga journey. This was enhanced by the delicious food and warmth from Hari and his team.
The yoga was fabulous too - there are no frills, airs or graces here - but if you are looking for a genuine yoga experience, this is it!

I went to Hari’s for ten days and stayed for eighteen. He’s a fantastic teacher who really helped me take my yoga practice forward. He has years of experience which not only comes across during class, but in his discussions afterwards as well. He is a wonderful host with great knowledge of Varkala and Kerala. Rooms are very comfortable and food is delicious. The gardens are full of bananas, coconuts and birds and beautifully lit by oil lamps at night. I met great people and swam at sunset every evening. Can’t recommend it here enough.

If you are looking to clear your mind, relax and re-set then this is the place for you. This was my second visit to Sharanagati Yogahaus and it was as good as the first. The wise words from Hari throughout the yoga practice really resonate and can be carried forward to daily life on leaving India. Again the food was delicious and the atmosphere on the grounds very relaxed and peaceful. It was nice to meet a few likeminded people too. I’ll be back next year

The photos don't do this place justice! And the thought to take photos didn't occur to me perhaps because I was physically, emotionally and cognitively fully engaged in each moment. I stayed at Hari's for 5 nights and would have liked to have stayed twice that! My room was in the original house, cool and comfortable with a good size bathroom. As a beginner yoga participant, the daily mediation and morning and afternoon yoga sessions were a welcome (and achievable) challenge. Breakfast and lunch were delicious and healthy. The location is perfect, just a stone's throw from the cliff and perhaps 100 metres to the black beach (perfect for sunset swims after the 4pm yoga session!) Hari and the staff are very hospitable and their network of local contacts means connections are wide and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for this village crew! I will definitely return - and bring friends along for the serenity, health and adventure!
