Los diferentes sitios de alojamiento en Hariharalaya están construidos con materiales naturales de una manera tradicional. Todos los espacios son limpios, cómodos y frescos y están equipados con mosquiteros, ropa de cama, toallas y ventiladores.

Tienen un total de cuatro dormitorios compartidos, siete habitaciones privadas y siete cabañas de bambú para retiro, todos esparcidos a través de dos hectáreas de jardines y bosques. Hay siete baños modernos compartidos con inodoros y seis duchas. Todas las áreas están conectadas por senderos y hermosos jardines, que se encuentran bien iluminados por las noches.

El centro de yoga ocupa más de 2 hectáreas de jardines selváticos a la sombra de los antiguos templos de Angkor en un pueblo tradicional de Camboya, a sólo 15 kilómetros de Siem Reap y el aeropuerto internacional. Hariharalaya era la capital de Camboya Védica desde 800 hasta aproximadamente 1000 D.C. El nombre viene del sánscrito, Hara Shiva, Hari Vishnu, y Alaya. Que significa «El hogar de la divina unidad en dualidad».

Parte de la magia de Hariharalaya es la oportunidad de vivir en un pueblo de agricultura tradicional de Camboya. Ubicado a 16 kilómetros de Siem Reap, los aldeanos de Bakong todavía viven un estilo de vida tradicional, cultivan y crían vacas, caminan y van en bicicleta al mercado, disfrutan de la sencillez. La voces y risas de los niños llenan los caminos de tierra y carreteras, mientras juegan lejos del estrés y la tensión de la ciudad y los turistas.

Los alimentos son el ciclo de vida, esta vida que se ha estado moviendo, creando y bailando por grandes períodos de tiempo y trascendencia. La comida es la manera de participar en este gran evento, con respeto, amor, alegría y creatividad. Honran la vida que los sustenta - comiendo alimentos locales, de temporada, simples, veganos, ecológicos, coloridos y deliciosos. Las comidas son también un momento para que la comunidad se reúna y comparta un momento de conciencia. Antes de cada comida, todos se reúnen en un círculo y el fundador, Joel, lee un poema de Hafiz (poeta místico sufí del siglo XVI), seguido de un OM grupal y posteriormente, se dan avisos.

Los desayunos siempre incluyen frutas frescas como mango, piña, sandía, plátano; un plato principal, desde tofu revuelto, puré de batata con ajo, gachas de arroz Khmer, barras de galleta veganas y más; y también un batido del día: mango con zanahoria, plátano con fruta de la pasión, plátano con mantequilla de maní, jugo de sandía, etc.

Los almuerzos y cenas constan de un plato principal, arroz integral y una ensalada fresca. Los platos varían entre curry de Khmer, pastas con fideos de arroz fideos, frijoles mexicanos, hummus o crema de garbanzos, Dahl de la India, sopa de calabaza y muchos más. Durante los sábados de meditación intensiva, comen comidas sencillas como gachas de arroz y verduras al vapor, para mantener el cuerpo y la mente tranquilos y en paz.

También ofrecen una amplia selección de aperitivos locales camboyanos y bocadillos caseros entre las comidas. Los aperitivos incluyen bolsas de maní, uva pasas, mezcla de frutos secos, chips de plátano y batata dulce frita. Los bocadillos pueden ser pasteles caseros y panes dulces recién horneados así como helado de coco vegano local.

Hay que recordar que el cuerpo no se nutre únicamente por el alimento ingerido, sino también por sutiles corrientes de la naturaleza y la vida: los cuatro elementos, el sol y luna, la respiración, la creatividad y la alegría.

¡La buena noticia es que puedes continuar comiendo con conciencia una vez que salgas de Hariharalaya! Ahora está disponible la segunda edición de su propio libro de cocina “Hariharalaya, cocinar con conciencia”. Con más de 90 de nuestras recetas favoritas incluyendo fotos a color de alta calidad, ¡es la adición perfecta a tu cocina casera!

    Good start to a journey of Yoga

    CONS No me gustó: Private Rooms - very hot, brown Linens made it difficult to identify insects and animals on them. Made the room extremely dull. The in room furniture was aslo not good or insufficient to accommodate stuff. Fans were only on one speed. Less common facilities like bathrooms for private rooms.

    "I've been here three times because I loved it so much, had truly inspiring experiences each time, made new connections and learnt so much! Joel and his crew at Hariharalya provide a truly blissful retreat experience complete with local bamboo huts, beautiful cozy pool, hammocks under a canopy of tropical fruit trees, juice bar (vegan ice cream sundae not to be missed!!!), great vegan meals 3x/day, spa area for massages, creative room for music and drawing, the fun outdoor "gym"... And there is also a serious program leading you (beginners and advanced yoga students alike) into a deeper understanding of "integral yoga" - so leave your idea of acrobatics behind and embark on the most gratifying journey into yourself! I particularly appreciated the silent meditation sessions twice daily as well as all the extra options like hidden temple journey, alignment workshop, dharma talks by Joel, acupuncture, ... Thank you for providing such a special place!"

    "I had such a wonderful and healthy holiday with Hariharalaya !! 6 days was gone like a blink. The friendly staff welcomed us at the meeting point in downtown and followed by tuk tuk ride to the quiet village. the schedule of each day is a bit different so you wouldn't feel like having the routine everyday however the meditation is taught on daily basis which is great because meditation is not like yoga or other activity, it needs more time to understand the meaning and how the way you breathe associates with you better when you meditate. You are able to select additional treatment such as massage, temple tour, one on one yoga posture correction with little extra charge or join the talks with various topics for free. i was always running around and chased by time because of my occupation and day after day I realize that I need a break from all this !! Hariharalaya did the magic to me !! whole environment has great vibe to slow you down and relax. Everyday you have 2-3 hours free time so you can hop on the bike to explore the nearby temple and village yourself. The meals they provided had been amazing !! Healthy fruit and vegan meals three meals a day. Clean eating yet it comes with great natural flavor and nutrition for your body. There is juice bar on site so you can go order it yourself when you are craving for a little treat after meditation or yoga class. You will start to feel the change the healthy diet brings to your body. and trust me, you will love that feeling. I felt the whole experience has taken off so much weight from my shoulder and I would highly recommend Hariharalaya to everybody who needs to detox yourself both mentally and physically. Thank you Hariharalaya !!! xx"

    "Hariharalaya has offered me the opportunity to relax, calm down, step out of my daily routine and connect back with my true self, nature and amazing people including the great and inspiring staff. Besides the yoga classes, workshops, treatments and the huge and wonderful property and village hariharalaya is located at - I most enjoyed the vegan food!! Fresh, delicious and many different dishes through out the retreat. The entire experience was balanced and absolutely positive. I will adapt many new things in my lifestyle inspired by hariharalaya and its team. Thank you for taking the time to chat with me, teach me, listen and show me how to integrate yoga in my life. This is a great opportunity for every one who wants to relax and learn about integral yoga. Acommodation is amazing, facilities are clean, program is balanced and suitable for all levels. Go Hariharalaya. And big thanks."

I learned so much about yoga and meditation that I've taken with me as a personalized practice. I also met so many amazing, like-minded people and learned how delicious vegan food can be. After just 6 days at Hariharalaya, it felt like home. I left feeling rejuvenated, grounded and grateful."

    "From the moment I arrived at Hariharalaya I felt completely at home and welcomed into a beautiful reality! The atmosphere is very flexible and adaptive to meet everyone's individual needs. There is opportunity to create your own experience during your stay at hariharalaya- whether that is taking the time for deep relaxation or exploring creativity, education or physical activity. They offer a range of activities and workshops including topics of yoga education and facilities such as a pool, fresh juice bar, outdoor gym with slack line and trampoline and even a range of musical instruments! The list goes on and on!! Travelers all seemed to feel a sense of relief to relax in a comfortable place and take time to pay attention to the health of their bodies and minds- while being surrounded by incredible staff and other like-minded people! Eating homemade vegan food that is all cooked in an open kitchen with fresh local ingredients that nourishes your body and is beyond delicious!!! The place is incredibly inspiring on so many levels. Words are not sufficient to express how much I loved my stay at Hariharalaya!!"

    "I was lucky enough to call Hariharalaya home for over a year, beginning with my time as a guest and later coming back to teach full time as a resident teacher. From the moment I was greeted by the manager Sean at the door, I felt at home. One of the most inspiring things about Hariharalaya is how warm, welcoming and genuinely happy all of the staff members are, and it's no wonder why... The founder of the center, Joel has poured his heart into Hariharalaya from the grounds to the outstanding food to the staff, all of whom he takes time to meet with individually, offering guidance on their own journey with yoga as well as finding ways to inspire others. The Cambodian staff is no exception. Joel's wife, Srey Pin is from the village as with many of her family and neighbors who are employed by the center. It really is one big extended family (guests included). As anyone who has come through Hariharalaya would agree, Joel's aim is clear: to offer guests the tools and inspiration to maintain a personal daily yoga practice after leaving. At the end of every retreat, we would discuss ways to cater the diverse offering of classes, workshops, treatments and private lessons to make this possible. It is a rare opportunity to be able to experience the quality of classes offered here while being in a remote farming village. Every afternoon as I rode my bike and was greeted by Cambodian children running around barefoot with the brightest smiles yelling "hello! hello!", I was reminded what a blessing the simple life can be. Even after a year, it's hard to express what this experience has been for me, but I think the number of exceptional reviews demonstrate that Hariharalaya is worth visiting. It's truly changed my life."

    "Hariharalaya is an outstanding facility. The setting is charming. The food is fantastic and the team are warm, welcoming and talented. I went in not having any experience in yoga and found the classes easy to follow and quite inspiring, my traveling companion is a yoga teacher and also loved the classes. They clearly cater for all levels. The simple life allows you to reconnect with your own inner calling. It reminds you of who you are and why. The coconut smoothies are just incredible as is the cleaver wielding local who swiftly opens the coconuts with a few well aimed swings. The people I encountered were beautiful and the space allowed you to mingle with the other guests or to enjoy some reflective time alone. I will return to this magical place."

    "Part of me wishes visiting Hariharalaya hadn't been at the start of my trip because now nothing seems to compare! A friend and I came to the retreat together and had such a wonderful time that we returned the next week to do it all again. The retreat is a beautiful oasis amongst the Cambodian countryside filled with lovely gardens, natural bungalows, a secret swimming pool, hammocks and lots of spaces to talk, read and relax. I loved being able to turn off my phone for the length of the retreat and really disconnect from the outside world. It was a wonderful introduction to yoga and meditation with a perfect balance of structured classes and free time. Ultimately it's the teachers and staff that make this place so amazing. They are all such open, caring and inspiring people and I feel so grateful that I had the chance to get to know them. I hope I can return one day!"

    "Hariharalaya holds a very special place in my heart. From the moment I made the decision to go I knew that this would be an experience to remember. The amount of detail and love that was put into creating this retreat is so felt throughout the time there. This was the last week of my 5 month journey and I am so grateful it was! I felt ready to return home in such a place of peace and clarity. I also left with confidence that I would take what I learned here and apply it at home...and I have. It has been over a month and I have kept up the daily practice of yoga, meditation and pranayama that I learned there. I am forever grateful for the people I connected with, the workshops I attended, the beautiful experiences, the lovely teachers and the deep wisdom that Joel shared with us. It was a beautiful, authentic and heart warming retreat. I am honored that it was a part of my path. If you have been given the opportunity to attend, then you are blessed!! Thank you all...from the bottom of my heart."

    "This fabulous place reconnects you with you, and in so doing, with every one + thing in our beautiful world. It is an experience that stays with you; I'm writing this review nearly two months after my time at Hariharalaya. During my - objectively very short - time there, I built a daily personal practice inspired by the fantastic yoga teachers, a deeper understanding of the process of awakening inspired by Joel, & a deeper understanding of myself inspired by the countless opportunities to exercise consciousness, creativity, and community-building. To the ever-transient (and yet no less enduring) Hariharalaya crew: I am beyond grateful for this 'experience of bliss.' In the words of Krishnamurti..."Every little object which ordinarily I would never have noticed seemed to have an extraordinary quality of its own, and strangely, everything seemed to be a part of me. Nothing was separate from me; in fact, the 'me' as the observer, the perceiver, was absent, if you know what I mean. There was no 'me' separate from that tree, or from that paper in the gutter, or from the birds that were calling to each other. It was a state of consciousness that I had never known."

    "Hariharalaya was definitely one of the highlights of my travel this summer. It was different than some of the other yoga retreats in and around Siem Reap for having a definitive in/out dates, instead of open rolling dates. But that actually was better in my opinion, having a structured schedule for everyone. We were picked up at a central location in Siem Reap. Checking in process was smooth and I was immediately impressed with the beautiful facility. I loved all the huts and the twin room I stayed was very comfortable. Though none of us ever really stayed in our rooms that much except to sleep. There is a small but nice pool, outdoor showers, and other amenities. The food here is one of the best ever! I am definitely more of a meat and potato kinda girl, yet I never missed meat during my stay. I looked forward to each meal wondering what kind of magic happened in the kitchen that day. Yoga was good for beginners as well as for those who have been practicing for a while. The teachers were invested in your learning. They were also all very dedicated to yoga practices. They were living what they were teaching us. Meditation was more challenging for me. But I learned how to sit better for meditation as well as how to breath and focus. 6 days/5nights at Hariharalaya did not make me a yoga or meditation expert but it definitely taught me the core elements that I am still using back home. Thank you, Hariharalaya!!"

    "I highly recommend this retreat to everyone I meet along my travels. I visited for a week in June and loved every minute of my time at Hariharalya. It exceeded all of my expectations. The yoga and meditation sessions are run in a beautiful outdoor shala and open to any level of practice. The yoga instructors taught me so much and for the first time I have my own yoga & meditation practice that I can take with me on my travels. If you're looking to further your own practice then Hariharalaya is a great place to start. I also highly recommend the workshops to deepen your practice. The staff are extremely friendly and you are very well looked after during your stay. The food was some of the healthiest and most delicious Khmer food I ate during my 5 weeks in Cambodia. Overall, it is an amazingly run program that I can definitely say is worth the money. I can't speak more highly of the retreat or my time spent at Hariharalaya and I will definitely be back."

    "We absolutely loved every minute of being here. Every part of Hariharilaya is beautiful. From the open sided yoga hall where you can look out into the countryside, the outdoor gym where you can try your hand at tightrope walking, to the wide wooden upstairs balcony where you can relax in a hammock with a book from the well stocked library or just watch the trees swaying in the breeze. The list is endless. The whole place just exudes positive feelings. The yoga and meditation were great for beginners (but there were very experienced people there as well who loved it). We especially enjoyed the alignment workshop and the private yoga lessons where we were able to build up personal practices. The vegan meals were truly delicious with lots of choice every day. I don't think there was a meal where we didn't go back for seconds it was that good and there was always more than enough to go round. Staff, both local and not, were exceptionally friendly. Special mention must go to Marina's chocolate and coconut shakes - delicious!"

The learning doesn't stop at the end of class, though. With guests from all over the world and of all different backgrounds, every conversation is a new opportunity to hear about different cultures, perspectives, experiences, etc. The center offers various different activities to do during the day - everything from massages to trampolines - along with delicious vegan meals. I would recommend Hariharalaya to anyone."

    "Avant meme d'arriver sur place, tout etait clair, detaille et nous avons recu 2 emails pour nous informer afin de nous preparer a cette experience et anticiper les affaires a prendre notamment. A partir de la, tout s'est passe avec une grande facilite. Tout etait explique. Tout pour ne se concentre que sur notre retraite. L'accueil etait chaleureux. Le staff etait souriant, present, a l'ecoute sans etre envahissant et bienveillant. Le lieu est formidable, on y marche pieds nus ! Un grand bol d'air. Une salle d'art, un petit espace de muscu en plein air avec meme une slack-line, une petite piscine et meme une salle d'escalade. Ma chambre (un dortoir a 6) etait un bungallow simple avec une table de chevet. Une lumiere pour la piece et un ventilateur au plafond. Rudimentaire mais ca fait partie integrante de l'immersion. La nourriture est delicieuse, en quantite, vegane et variee. Il y a toujours de l'eau, du the et des bananes disponibles a toute heure. Enfin, l'aspect retraite et yoga est parfaitement maitrise Les cours sont accessibles a tous, pour tous les niveaux. Il y a egalement des seances supplementaires et des massages proposes (certains moyennant finances). Cette retraite m'a fait un bien fou et j'ai vu tout les participants litteralement tombes les uns dans les bras des autres apres seulement 6 jours ensemble. Tous sont repartis plus que satisfaits de ce sejour."

    "What an amazing place to be. The retreat itself is in a bucolic village not far from Siem Riep. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained and perfect for a relaxing and rejuvenating week of integrated yoga, breathing exercises, and meditation. The staff are well organized, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food is hearty, delicious, and very fresh. The whole week was well structured and packed with activities to choose from. Or you can just choose to relax in a hammock if you felt like it. And definitely get one, two, or three massages while you are there. The atmosphere was congenial, relaxed, and friendly.

    "My time at Hariharalaya went far beyond expectations. Initially I had booked my time there hoping to learn some tips to incorporate yoga and meditation into my day to day life. I did get that and so much more. Joel is a fantastic human. His love for his craft is contagious and I found myself learning to dive in to the Om lifestyle. Joel is insightful and approachable, happy to answer questions about life, music or just chat about whatever's on your mind (or his). The FOOD!! Oh man, I'm a card carrying omnivore but the vegan food was spectacular. Three delicious square meals a day. Also made myself a regular at the Juice Bar and I recommend you do too.

    "My husband and I needed somewhat of a system reset as we'd just sold our house and everything in it to travel the world and just see what life could throw our way. It was a bit stressful! Hariharalaya was perfect. It was recommended by a friend and we are so happy we took that recommendation. The retreat is tucked away among beautiful green and lush scenery. Very quiet and peaceful. The accommodation is very simple but you don't need much. I had done yoga before but my husband hadn't (bless him he threw himself wholeheartedly in to the experience!). Your level of experience doesn't matter though. It's not about what your body can do, the Center is more about giving you the basic tools and understanding that this lovely practice can be taken with you anywhere. The instructors were helpful and really lovely and all had great energy. There was a good structure to the day but loads of free time. Reading in hammocks was a popular favorite! The vegan food was outstanding. We aren't vegan or vegetarian but it didn't matter because the food was so delightful. It just felt as if it was doing you good! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to reconnect with themselves, get the basics of yoga and meditation and just have an outstanding and memorable experience. Thank you team Hariharalaya, you were amazing."

    "As someone who hadn't been on a retreat before/was not regularly practicing yoga, I wasn't sure what to expect from my 6 days at Hariharalaya. I was so blown away by the whole experience though! The leaders/instructors were all so knowledgeable, kind and inclusive as well as just interesting humans in their own right. The grounds are lovely, food was actually really great every meal and the whole flow of the program is perfectly designed to bring peace and openness into the group. Two things I ended up loving and highly recommend: ecstatic dance and partner/acro yoga. The beauty of your time here though, is that you can make what you want of it (time to yourself, time hanging with others, optional activities, etc) - so no two weeks are exactly the same. If you go, do exactly what you want/need to do but also don't be afraid to try some new things! Overall - loved my time at Hariharalaya and would love to come back some day "

    "I was making a big change in my life, moving from New Zealand to England, when I decided I needed to pause and process what was happening. Hariharalaya was the best possible place to do this - it exceeded all expectations. Its peace and tranquility gave me time to rest and relax. The earthy, lusciously green grounds, a sanctuary to walk amongst. Authentic bamboo huts offered a secluded paradise to retreat to, hammocks a plenty everywhere you look, a delightful pool to dip into in the midday heat and an abundance of other rooms, nooks and crannies to find a quiet space to read, draw, meditate, practice yoga or just generally be. The teachers were inspirational, each on their own journey but also more than happy to be open and share with you, they were always there to listen or provide guidance if you asked for it. Finally, the people, other yogi's and yogini's, who came together for 6 days, from all over the world and became one community. An incredible sense of unity and bonding and experiences with them that I will never forget (yes I am talking about ecstatic dance night!) I could go on forever, so tips and highlights: * do nothing or everything, it is extremely flexible so the choice is yours * if you're a foodie, you are in for a treat * appreciate the natural surroundings - bullfrogs, gecko, spiders and all. Weird and wonderful noises echo through the night * go with an open heart and truly live in 'the now' * join in ecstatic dance night!!! Extremely liberating!"

The ambient in the retreat is amazing, everything natural. The food so delicious. I'm not vegan, I'm not even vegetarian but the menus are so different and delicious that I enjoyed every meal. And all the natural fruit shakes. I loved yoga classes and meditation, but when it was to much of everything (sometimes yoga 3 times per day) I just skipped one and enjoyed in little swimming pool or training my slack line skills :) So far everything great and I didn't even mentioned the team yet... Everyone that works there is just amazing. Joel, who is the heart of the community, and everyone else who help him with maintaining the nicest experience you could imagine. No wonder that there were so many people there who came for their second or even third retreat. If I'll have some extra time at the end of my travel, I'm definitely going there for 1 more week.

    "The Hariharalya Retreat was the best part of a long trip abroad. I was not very experienced in either yoga or meditation and wanted to work on both in a relaxed environment. Hariharalaya exceeded my expectations.In just 5 days I greatly improved my yoga skills and now feel comfortable meditating for longer than 15 minutes. In addition I found the staff to be welcoming and friendly to everyone, regardless of age, skill level, or background. That attitude spread to attendees - all of us went away feeling like we met life-long friends."

The centre is a beautiful retreat that makes you feel comfortably back-to-nature, and the staff are incredibly welcoming and engaged. While my yoga practice at home is much more physically intense, this was a chance to discover yoga in a new light, as the foundation for the equally (mentally) intense practice of meditation. I loved all the rituals of our days - being awoken by gongs, silent time before morning practice, sharing delicious meals and relaxing afternoons. And of course, the quickly-formed community of like-minded people (and still, people at varied points in their journey) is the magic that held the whole week together. Don't hesitate - just book this retreat!"

    "I had such an incredible time at Hariharalaya retreat centre. I came to the retreat after a very full on three weeks of work in Cambodia. From the very beginning we were all treated with such kindness and respect. I am a beginner to yoga and meditation and it was not a problem at all. Every practice was able to be tailored to whatever level you were at and was always able to ask for support from the teachers who could adjust your pose. I loved the message that yoga was for you and no-one else- and to never compare. Joel the founder is just bloody wonderful. He would sweep in at times, share such incredible wisdom and intense warmth and then quite mysteriously float away! He always had time to chat though and answered many of my questions. "

    "The teachers were always there and really beautiful and very far from some yoga teachers who are intimidating and lack compassion for us un-flexible folk. The food was so epic- vegan abundance everyday. The accommodation was clean and earthy and very comfy. The people it attracts is also really great- such good vibes. My experience was made all the better because I had my 24th birthday at the retreat. It wasn't planned but I ended up there. I had one of the best days of my life starting with a beautiful group singing of happy birthday in our breakfast circle. The day was filled with huge smiles from everyone, hugs, happy birthday renditions in different languages, swimming, a special birthday dessert and a little gift. Best of all, I got to ring the gong. So much power! "

Thank-you endlessly and humbly to my fellow yogis and the wonderful staff. Gah! It was just so so great. Go here with an open mind and heart and experience the essence of yourself and life.

And I didn't know that much about meditation either.Because it's been a couple months, I will just share the highlights. Ever since my retreat, I still practice yoga and have made it part of my regular routine. I honestly can't imagine myself not doing it. It makes me feel relaxed and calm, and I noticed my body has become stronger and more flexible.I loved the vegan Mexican chili. Joel, the owner, gave us a pdf of the recipe and I've made it and brought it to potlucks.I miss the smoothie station, and I don't think I will ever find a coconut chocolate smoothie that would be as delicious as Hariharilaya's recipe.I honestly had the best massage of my life. And I have yet to find someone who knows how to massage my back as well as the blind masseuse.Joel was inspiring. He's very down-to-earth, approachable, and willing to share everything he knows.

The environment was awesome, located around 10 km away from crowded Siam Reap, in the middle of a local village, surrounded by temples. The staff, working on the center, are locals living near there.

    "The founder of Hariharalaya Joel Altman has created a remarkable legacy for our world. Don't miss it!. The 6 day yoga and meditation retreat stands firmly in its integrity. I deeply appreciated the experience. It is a wise integration of fun, amazing food, yoga, connection with likeminded people, meditation and as it roots it is built on Joel's deep commitment to the beauty of living in the here and now as an antidote to the craziness that hurts our world. The retreat can be enjoyed on many of these levels. Even if you are not looking for a deeply spiritual experience it can be enjoyed as just that; a healthy break from the chaos of wandering around wondering what your trip is all about. I was personally inspired by Joel's vision, that peace, health and contentment could be mine with discipline and practice and he would show me exactly what to do. No place like this is just one person and he has crafted a team of Cambodian staff and yoga/meditation instructors from all over that deliver the experience. The setting is sweetly wrapped on the outskirts of typical Cambodian village and far from the craziness of Siem Reap. So if you are reading this and thinking it sounds like work, you are likely wrong and likely the traveler who will get the most out of it. And unbelievably it is as little as $220 for the 6 days!"

During my - objectively very short - time there, I built a daily personal practice inspired by the fantastic yoga teachers, a deeper understanding of the process of awakening inspired by Joel, & a deeper understanding of myself inspired by the countless opportunities to exercise consciousness, creativity, and community-building.To the ever-transient (and yet no less enduring) Hariharalaya crew: I am beyond grateful for this 'experience of bliss.' In the words of Krishnamurti..."Every little object which ordinarily I would never have noticed seemed to have an extraordinary quality of its own, and strangely, everything seemed to be a part of me. Nothing was separate from me; in fact, the 'me' as the observer, the perceiver, was absent, if you know what I mean. There was no 'me' separate from that tree, or from that paper in the gutter, or from the birds that were calling to each other. It was a state of consciousness that I had never known."!!"

There is opportunity to create your own experience during your stay at Hariharalaya- whether that is taking the time for deep relaxation or exploring creativity, education or physical activity. They offer a range of activities and workshops including topics of yoga education, body language and communication skills development, magic shows.. and facilities such as a pool, fresh juice bar, outdoor gym with slack line and trampoline and even a range of musical instruments! The list goes on and on!!Travelers all seemed to feel a sense of relief to relax in a comfortable place and take time to pay attention to the health of their bodies and minds- while being surrounded by incredible staff and other like-minded people! Eating homemade vegan food that is all cooked in an open kitchen with fresh local ingredients that nourishes your body and is beyond delicious!!!The place is incredibly inspiring on so many levels. Words are not sufficient to express how much I loved my stay at Hariharalaya!!"

    "Hariharalaya was definitely one of the highlights of my travel this summer. It was different than some of the other yoga retreats in and around Siem Reap for having a definitive in/out dates, instead of open rolling dates. But that actually was better in my opinion, having a structured schedule for everyone.We were picked up at a central location in Siem Reap. Checking in process was smooth and I was immediately impressed with the beautiful facility. I loved all the huts and the twin room I stayed was very comfortable. Though none of us ever really stayed in our rooms that much except to sleep. There is a small but nice pool, outdoor showers, and other amenities.The food here is one of the best ever! I am definitely more of a meat and potato kinda girl, yet I never missed meat during my stay. I looked forward to each meal wondering what kind of magic happened in the kitchen that day.Yoga was good for beginners as well as for those who have been practicing for a while. The teachers were invested in your learning. They were also all very dedicated to yoga practices. They were living what they were teaching us. Meditation was more challenging for me. But I learned how to sit better for meditation as well as how to breathe and focus.6 days/5nights at Hariharalaya did not make me a yoga or meditation expert but it definitely taught me the core elements that I am still using back home. Thank you, Hariharalaya!!"

    "I highly recommend this retreat to everyone I meet along my travels. I visited for a week in June and loved every minute of my time at Hariharalya. It exceeded all of my expectations. The yoga and meditation sessions are run in a beautiful outdoor shala and open to any level of practice. The yoga instructors taught me so much and for the first time I have my own yoga & meditation practice that I can take with me on my travels. If you're looking to further your own practice then Hariharalay is a great place to start. I also highly recommend the workshops to deepen your practice. The staff are extremely friendly and you are very well looked after during your stay. The food was some of the healthiest and most delicious Khmer food I ate during my 5 weeks in Cambodia. Overall, it is an amazingly run program that I can definitely say is worth the money. I can't speak more highly of the retreat or my time spent at Hariharalay and I will definitely be back."

    " I stayed at Hariharalaya for 2 months from the end of january til the end of march and I can honestly say it has made a huge impact on my life. I had previously practiced yoga and meditation for about 12 months before arriving but my time there elevated my practice to a new level through expert guidance and a structured approach. My advice would be to stay as long as possible but even a short stay at Hariharalaya will have an enormous positive influence on your mindset, approach to life and general wellbeing. Go "

    " From the regular yoga and meditation classes to the talks and workshops. From the vegan feasts to the green gym. We came with busy heads and stiff limbs and left after only 10 days feeling a sense of not only belonging but also of longing to return. A routine in place to take forward. since we left we have continued to practice the lessons we learnt. Being mindful and present, using patience with practice and opening our hearts to what really matters. with love and respect we extend our gratitude to Joel for his knowledge and guidance, Sean for his personality and professionalism, Jen for her introduction and communication, Claire, Amy, Stephan and Brittany for their classes, talks and treatments (awesome). What a wonderful place with amazing people. If you are looking for a retreat where you get pampered and spend time drinking cocktails in a spa... don't go. If however your looking to learn about the complete process of yoga and meditation. Find out about yourself and your place in this world, then there a few better things you could do than get in touch with Hariharlaya and yourself."

    " As a beginner in yoga and completely new to meditation I came to Hariharalaya to give myself a break. I loved being there for 4 weeks and still miss it. The yoga classes taught by Claire and Amy are varied, challenging and exciting. I never thought my body could change so much in a months time. There is a morning session every day and sometimes another one in the afternoon. Combined with a personal practice that is quite a bit of time spent on the mat. The meditation was very challenging, sitting completely still for 20-60 minutes isn't easy! It has really helped me become calmer, overcome some challenges and leave things behind. Physically and mentally it hurts but the release is amazing. With an open mind Hariharalaya is a safe place to let go. Claire's words still go through my head: "It's ok to relax, it's ok to let go." It is a basic lifestyle, walking barefoot, cold showers, simple accommodation (amazing pillows!) but that's what I was after. Not having wifi or 20 computers (there is one) is great, people actually talk to each other again! The student program I found was set up well. The extra asana classes were fun and helpful; the weekly group meetings with Joel helped me get rid of what other people think of me, the silence days were a big plus too. After a month I feel confident to be myself, enjoy my daily practice and thank all of the staff for that! "
