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...

This was my first retreat, although I had practiced yoga for about a year prior. I didn't have any meditation or chanting experience before my arrival.
