Namaste & Welcome!
Here at Shree Hari Yoga School, we provide Yoga Teacher Training
accredited with Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Training in India alongside Continuing Education Programs (YACEP).
Our Teacher Training Courses originated from the desire to share
the authentic heart of yoga and, in so doing, inspire you to do so too.
Our school was born in 2013 amongst the lush coconut palms bordering Kudle Beach in Gokarna, one of South India’s important pilgrimage sites. Since then we have graduated hundreds of certified yoga teachers and expanded to offer training in several stunning locations across India.
Our aim is to provide training opportunities and retreats where you can come as you are to be supported, encouraged, challenged, and embraced. You will meet new friends, explore your practice, share your laughter, learn to teach others, and be welcomed as a member of our international yoga family.
What Makes Us Different
At Shree Hari Yoga School you will receive holistic teacher training engaging all aspects of yoga.
Yoga is far more than asana. By training at Shree Hari you will experience the spirituality, philosophy, holistic healing and limitless benefits that Yoga can bring.
We are committed to empowering you to bring yoga’s wholeness into your practice, teaching, and life.
By providing Yoga Teacher Training, we are able to live and share our knowledge, wisdom and experience of yoga. We teach with compassion, authenticity, kindness, and joy.
Our school and retreats are safe and inclusive environments where students can experience yoga as a holistic way of life.
We aim to help our students build flexibility, strength, to find peace, joy, self-awareness and self-acceptance in their bodies, minds, and hearts.
At Shree Hari Yoga School, we believe that our thoughts and values drive our actions. Our actions are responsible for the quality of the material world that surrounds us.
Considering this, we feel that the lifestyle of yoga is the best way to live and sharing this knowledge, wisdom and experience with others is the best karmic activity we can undertake.
We welcome anyone who wishes to follow this path as family and look forward to supporting your journey of transformation!
A Message from Our Founder
I am Hari Pawali and welcome to Shree Hari Yoga School. I founded the school with the goal of providing affordable high-quality training in yoga and the healing arts, with students of all paths and levels. I set forth to create an inclusive community of students and teachers where all feel welcomed and where I could share the knowledge and experience that I have accumulated along my own path of yoga.
Furthermore, I was born into a family of devotees and was raised from childhood to be a yogi and follower of Lord Shiva. My mother Tara Devi, a Bhakti Guru, became my first guide in the spiritual life. My early additional exposure to yoga was primarily within the Nath Tradition, and after leaving home I lived for some years as an ascetic sadhu following my Nath Guru and fellow disciples on the path of spiritual discipline. I eventually re-entered the worldly life with the seed of motivation to share yoga with the wider world. In support of that dream, I entered an ashram where I resided for several years, delving deeper into the art of teaching yoga and community building.
In 2013 my vision of creating a yoga school and community was realized in the beautiful beachside town of Gokarna. Since then, my school has graduated hundreds of students and expanded to offer courses at multiple locations in both north and south India.
