"Shared yoga experience"

The yoga retreat was a perfect way for my daughter and I to spend a precious week together before she continued her travels. It became so much more than I anticipated as we shared evening sunset swims and evening meals out with the people at the retreat. The food was delicious with at least six different fruits with porridge and chai for breakfast and several vegetarian dishes with rice for lunch. Our instructor Harry was always available throughout the day, his warm personality and yoga routine maintained our interest and provided us with sufficient challenge for our physical and mental wellbeing with a touch of fun. We were very happy here and whole heartily recommend it.

"Seaside yogahaus where Inner pace became mantra"

Hari is very passionate about yoga and people entering his backyard. He loves India with all his heart and aims for great experiences. The location is very closed to the beach and in between yoga practice you can enjoy the salty sea and the spicy authentic Kerala food.

"A magic place for a yoga retreat!"

Hari is a very welcoming host! We feel good in this magical and green place. It’s really beautiful and calm. Hari is also a good guide for meditation. I really appreciate that! Sivananda yoga is a type of yoga that I did not know before that retreat. I enjoyed discovering it. The sequence is complete and refreshing. The food cooked by Shiva is excellent! The places around the yogahouse is really great very. Wonderful beaches! I recommend this place for sure!

"Sharanagati was a total joy, a beautiful time and experience"

Sharanagati Yogahaus run by Hari was one of the best experiences l have had in my life, a beautiful time with beautiful people. Hari who runs Sharanagati is a great guy, supportive and committed, and has created a lovely good and gentle warm vibe at Sharanagati which filtered through and added to my experience. The accommodation was super nice, a new building, so well looked after, gorgeous setting. The food, cooked by a lovely local lady called Sheba was the best l had for my entire trip to Kerala, so healthy, fresh and good. Sharanagati is also just 5mins walk from a beautiful beach, was swimming there every evening at sunset. I consider myself very lucky to have booked my yoga retreat with Hari, stayed for eight days. It was a blessing, arrived at Sharanagati a burnt out over worked man, left a reborn man with a light step, super healthy, with tonnes of energy and a warm smile on my face. This has to be the best yoga spot and place to stay in Verkala, highly recommend! Thank you Hari for creating this wonderful place and experience.

The accommodation was lovely, very modern and clean, I had my own balcony! The food was home cooked and incredible, varried everyday. The yogahaus is also very sociable, it was like a little family, everyone was so friendly and welcoming which was good for me as a solo traveller. Yoga was very relaxing, just what I needed.

"Best mind a yoga training I have ever had"

I enjoyed the simple way of doing yoga based on very original form. The mind training is very important and the Haris teaching gave me an excelent instruction for this. Hari does It with fun and deep understanding.

"Perfect place.."

Hari has created an oasis in Varkala. Hari himself is a wonderful man and the atmosphere is one of somewhere between a very relaxed ashram and a blissful retreat. Everyone finds it difficult to leave!

"where time stands still"

The sense of calmness in the mornings after the pranayam and meditation, the sense of accomplishment after a 2 hour shivananda yoga session, the tranquility of the afternoons with bumble bee hummings, birds chirping, crows crowing and zephyr like breeze cooling the heated body while on with our early evening session. The sense of camaraderie during our evenings out, atop the cliff, the swim in the ocean and the massages. bliss.

"A great place"

I particularly liked the mixed programme of yoga and Hari gave a good introduction to practising meditation. Also, Sheba is an excellent cook and the food was always delicious. The grounds are beautiful and quite tropical.
