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
Tarun is really generous in sharing is passion, and is a really beautiful huma.
I liked the detox and ayurvedic treatments, gets you out of your comfort zone but you feel amazing afterwards.
The view on the Himalayas are beautiful
The room/ bathroom could do with a bit of modernization.

Although I never tried yoga before in my life Tarun was very motivating to challenge myself to go further than I imagined! The combination of yoga, meditation and detox paired with wonderful hosts and great food made this stay perfect!

Tarun has such a deep yogic wisdom and knowledge and endless positivity. He let us explore and widen our limits and dive into more pure world. Himalayan mountains and rice terraces views are amazing. Food is delicious and healthy. Me and my parner really enjoyed the retreat and wish to come back for longer period

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.

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.
Ich sollte 4 Tage lang Detox Yoga machen.An 3 Tagen davon war Tarun nicht anwesend(auf einer Konferenz)und eine Schülerin aus dem noch laufenden 200 Teacher Training hat ihn vertreten!Das ist eine absolute Frechheit.
Ich habe meine Beschwerden direkt Tarun mitgeteilt,da ich als Kundin eine Lösung erwartete aber er fühlte sich absolut im Recht und hat nur abgeblockt und am Thema vorbeigeredet.
Die Leistungen entsprechen weder professionell noch materiell dem Preis.
Schlafzimmer und Yogaraum eisigkalt,das Badezimmer ist eine Zumutung.
Und der Kursleiter hat nur eine Sache im Kopf:bloß keine Geldrückerstattung.
Ich habe bereits 2 Teachertrainings und mehrere Yoga-Urlaube gemacht.
So etwas aber zum Glück noch nie.
Es hat jeder andere Vorstellungen aber bei Yoga-Unterricht gibt es keine Kompromisse zu machen.Wie auch bei Massage.

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!

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!
I spend 10 amazing days in the Saptrashmi yoga retreat. The professional therapist I met there helped me to fix my digestive, sleeping ,hormonal and well being problem that I had years ago. Everyday yoga, meditation, the healthy food, nature and all the other therapy was nourishment to my body and soul and brought back the happiness in my life. I highly recommend this place and I will go back for sure one day. Namaste.
Thank you for your beautiful hospitality. I feel like quite a different person from the one who arrived here a week ago! I loved the Yoga practice, the food and the Massage. It's wonderful to have rested and relaxed here with you. Also we have laughed so much. I love your sense of humor and lightness! All the best of wishes for you and health, happiness and peace.
This week has been so much than I had expected. I laughed, I cried and feel like me again. You are such a wonderful host and an exceptional Yoga instructor. I feel that I have improved in my Yoga practice and would know now how to improve even further.

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful experience. It has been everything , I could have wished for: relaxing, fun, healing, challenging (Yoga!) and in such a beautiful location. I have felt very safe and looked after the whole time. Thank you for your teaching and guidance and lovely presence and thank you to Prashant for all his lovely food, gentle presence and strong yet gentle healing massages.
I came here with no expectations other than to rest, release and do a bit of "Sexy Yoga". The Yoga was not 'Sexy' like on TV! It was rooted in all the correct principles. It taught me to unclear bad practice. It taught me how to focus and be in "happy thoughts ". It helped me understand what was wrong with my body but more importantly how to correct it! I leave Saptrashmi happier, more focused on the abundance in my life and very much of the path I am on.
Kate England Madagascar
What a ride! This week has been a real turning point for me. I arrived gripped by "burn out" from over thinking, negative thinking and just plain not thinking properly! Now I am starting to see the happiness and light I can build into and grow in my life. This has been a MEGA-TRANSLATION! I loved your yoga instructions, never thought I could progress so much in one week. Thank you, this changed my life!
I came here a week ago as not relaxed, not happy, not balanced girl. I was always thinking about my past and future and what could I have done better. I always had the impression that I am not good enough. You changed so much inside me! You showed me that I am a happy, healthy, strong, person who can do a lot. You showed me to accept the situation and see the positive things in it. You learnt me so much about happiness, health, yoga, food, life and positive thinking. Thank you for this! I am still 19 years old and I am really happy that I have learnt this now, because I have so many years to practice it.
I enjoyed my trip to Saptrashmi in Goa. Tarun was a good host who tried to ensure that I got to experience Goa when not doing Yoga. Tarun was also helpful with providing wifi and arranging transport when I was due to leave. The Yoga was challenging and Tarun pushed me. I'm not convinced I am as flexible as he thought but it was a good challenge! My door to my room did not initially lock, this was rectified the next day and the property felt safe!
Tarun and Aarti were so welcoming! I went to the retreat by myself and was nervous, but the nerves left as soon as I arrived! The structure of the day was wonderful, including lots of different activities but also with enough free time. The location was beautiful and lovely to walk around. I really learnt a lot and had a wonderful time. Thank you Tarun and Aarti!

Thank you for your hospitality and generosity while I have been on my retreat. I feel so much better and stress free after my Yoga and Massages. I will continue to practice! Good luck and best wishes for your future.

Thank you for all your help and support. My Yoga has improved so much and I feel so much healthier, happier and more positive. It has been such a relaxing and enlightening experience and I really appreciate your support and guidance. Hopefully we will meet again.
Thank you for a wonderful 6 days. I now feel much more relaxed and rested. Thank you also for being so accommodating & looking after my needs. Apologies if I wasn't the easiest of people when it came to the colonic but you dealt with me well. I can't remember the last time I had six days without a glass of wine but I have to say I didn't miss it at all. Thank you for making me realize that life is fine without drinking every day. I hope we will meet again.
