"Excellent 5 day detox!"
Everything about this place was amazing! I had attempted to do a detox for the first time and came out with flying colors thanks to Tarun's yoga and meditation classes and the excellent detox treatment and personal care. The vibe in the place is very positive and I look forward to a healthy life now and follow the routine that I learnt in Saptrashmi. Thank You Tarun & team.

"Peace in the hills of Dharamshala :)"
This was my first retreat and I really enjoyed it. The location is a quiet village in Dharamshala which was perfect to focus on myself, mind and body for the days I was there. I arrived very late at night and the staff were so helpful in my arrival. The room is basic (you are getting the value for what you pay for). The food is simple yet tasty and a real good balance of meals. The yoga classes are a good mixture of breathing techniques, postures and stretching - it has really helped me in learning more about yoga and my ability. Tarun is so softly spoken that his voice can guide you through the classes so well. I really liked the meditation classes as I was able to learn other ways of meditating than what I already know. And the massages are a plus. The setting is so simple and that was my favourite part of it. The view from the yoga room is so nice and I would just sit there in my free time to read or relax. You are left with a lot of time to do what you wish. It is a good balance if you want to explore outside the retreat and enjoy your own time too. I would love to come and again some time.

from India, December 2018
I had a very relaxing 4 days at the yoga retreat. Tarun's instruction helped me deepen my own practice and correct my alignment. The retreat consists of yoga (asanas), pranayama (breathing), detox treatments and massage with a lot of free time for reflection, reading or walking in the village.
There is no theory or philosophy component which would have enhanced the understanding behind each of the practises or treatment.

"Brilliant Yoga in a Modest Homestay"
I had private daily sessions with Tarun, and his focused attention helped me detox, heal, and begin my yoga practice again. The food was excellent with many second, and third, helpings available for lunch and dinner.
from India, April 2018
Saptrashmi detox yoga was a great experience. I went alone and was apprehensive at first but Tarun and Nishu were very welcoming and hospitable. The yoga and meditation exercises were good. I also enjoyed learning about naturopathy and talking with Tarun. It was great to have the opportunity to detox and focus on your body. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was very calm and the accommodation was simple but comfortable. I have learnt things about my lifestyle that I plan to improve on. I would recommend the retreat!!

"A life changing experience! "
I couldn’t ask for a better experience. I came with no expectations at all and what an amazing surprise it was.
Tarun it’s an amazing instructor that loves what he does. He will adapt to everybody’s needs and will make sure everyone is comfortable and happy, living our own personal experience and journey. He makes you meditate about true meaning of yoga and how to go with flow and live in the present moment.
Food it’s amazing!! I felt a real difference in my body.
I came to learn how to listen and take care of my body in a more conscious way.

Really great to be with a small and intimate group
Tarun is an excellent Hatha teacher, really soothing voice - I really enjoyed the Pranayama and the Yoga Nidra. He also pushed us to our limits

Saptrashmi ashram is simple and has a rustic rural charm about itself . It's beauty is in its simplicity. Tarun and his team of helpers are very warm and generous . I came a night before my 8 day detox session and he welcomed me without any iffs n buts . I loved how this place gives you personalised attention as he only takes max 5 ppl at a time.

"A wonderful and life changing experience!"
The program is complete and allowed me to fully integrate the benefits of Yoga. The food is very good. The teacher is competent and pays attention to each student and his/her specific needs. The surroundings are beautiful: at the foot of the Himalayan mountains, we could walk in rice fields, or along rivers and visite nice monuments such as Tibetan temples.

The food was ok, the point is even telling them I am celiac and lactose intolerant... they gave me products with gluten.. and I told them (I don’t know how many times) I can’t it, but they promised me they products have not any gluten....so it was so unbelievable when I found out it has.... you can’t trust them

"A wonderful exprerience !"
Everything during my retreat was fantastic!
The location is amazing and the view on the Himalayas immediately sets the peaceful atmosphere I found although my stay ! The spirits, the deep practice, the dialogue and advices I found with Tarun were all far more than I expected. I have been delighted and can’t wait to go back!
And on top of it all, the food was a delight!

"Kann ich nicht weiterempfehlen "
Er hat Jugendliche eingestellt,die kochen und den Haushalt machen.Dadurch entsteht eine besondere Stimmung.
Leider sind die Mädchen für Massage noch nicht ausgebildet.
Das Essen ist gut zubereitet.
Dass es immer das gleiche ist und praktisch keine Auswahl gibt,dafür können die nichts.
9- yoga- Tarun is very thorough and devoted to his practice, I only didn't like that he pushed me to the point that it was painful. Apart from it he was great teacher.
9- relaxation / body scan was great.
8- food was very tasty
5- accommodation- bed was really uncomfortable, and I had two tiny mattresses that would spread with every move, so I needed to keep fixing it during the night. My towel was full of stains and very old, I'd suggest you to bring your own. Also the yoga studio wasn't clean properly for the last two days.. apart from it it's beautiful area, very green, just by the river which is a huge plus. Bathroom /shower was fine.
Also I didn't like the fact that they have animals in the cages in the yard. Rabbits, birds, sausage dog. I guess it is to 'decorate' the yard, which was heartbreaking for me to watch... they don't look well cared of...
Overall it was good experience. They provide great Yoga and meditation plus colonic plus Ayurvedic massages which is great combo for cleanse. It's quiet neighborhood and you can hear all the lovely birds singing around and the river is stunning and peaceful. And Tarun is doing just amazing job.

Saptrashmi felt comfortable, like being with family. Tarun is a kind teacher with great wisdom. It was a blessing to learn yoga from him. The location was peaceful and surrounded by lovely people. You will not regret going!
from United Kingdom,
It was a fantastic experience. The food was outstanding, the yoga and meditation were both superbly led by Tarun, he guided us with great sensitivity. The accommodation ranged from basic to good. The Ayurvedic treatments we received were great; those seeking an intensive Ayurvedic experience, based on rigorous consultation would get less from the place. Big thumbs up from me.
You don't often hear of whole families going to Yoga retreats, but we did, and had a wonderful time!
The atmosphere, from the silent river, to the ever-smiling Tarun (the host) was wonderful, the site and location were very nice, and the food was amazing! The yoga and meditation classes with Tarun were at the same time appropriate for all (people in their 20s and up to 60!) and demanding for all! Tarun has a great eye for understanding each individual's needs, and how to best help them. We would have liked more Ayurvedic care (in the end, we were not able to get a visit, for diagnosis and recommendations, with an Ayurvedic doctor), but Tarun certainly provided a lot of useful tips and advice on healthy living. And the Ayurvedic massages with Sanjeed were fantastic! Having left feeling cleansed, happy, and recharged, we highly recommend the Saptrashmi retreat in Kerala!
