Daily yoga classes with meditation and pranayama. Optional asana coaching session in the afternoon.
Elegant rooms surrounded by a beautiful and spacious garden with tea house and hammocks.
A 5-minute walk from the beach and the Varkala cliffs with stunning views and gorgeous sunsets.
I stayed at the Sharanagati Yogahaus for two weeks, in March 2019. It’s a super-chilled, peaceful place, run by the wonderful Hari. The accommodation is great. I had a lovely big bedroom, my own bathroom, balcony and a view of the gardens and yoga hall. We practised 2 hours of meditation and yoga in the mornings and 1.5 hours of yoga in the afternoons. The style of yoga is Sivananda, combining sun salutations, deep stretching and breathwork. My flexibility and strength really improved during my stay and my mind calmed and cleared considerably. The breakfast and lunch included every day was exceptional Southern Indian cooking, by the gorgeous Sheba and for dinner I walked to Varkala Cliff for more delicious and very reasonably priced food. Leaving Sharanagati felt like leaving family. I really bonded with the other guests there. It’s a very special place and Hari is a very kind soul with some great knowledge. I hope to go back 😊

I was very pleased to find a yoga retreat where the meditation and pranayama was taken seriously and it was great to be able to practice all three together properly for the first time. Also only people staying there are allowed to take part in the classes, there are no drop ins which really helps create a special energy about the place. Thankyou Hari and your team for a great expereince.
