I was quite new to both yoga and meditation but Karen and Sivan made me forget that; they were fantastic tutors and their guidance inspired me to keep up all the progress that I had made at the beautiful Kin-Hin. Aside from that, the house was spectacular and spacious, with a fantastic secluded canopy rooftop. I must also not forget...

We did a 3 day yoga and meditation retreat at Karen and Shivan's home. The house is situated in a small quiet village, located a short trip from a lovely beach - samudra. We loved our stay and would recommend to everyone! :)

Kin-Hin is a lovely, simple home with two clean and comfortable guestrooms with en suite bath, and a rooftop meditation and yoga studio. Mornings and evenings there is yoga and meditation practice, leaving the day open to explore the area, enjoy the nearby beach, or venture into Trivandrum. Run by a friendly couple, Karen and Shivan, with strong ties to...

I stayed at the Kin Hin centre with a friend in the beginning of April (2016) for about 5 days. I really liked the quiet and the peace of this very open centre, with a gentle rhythm of morning meditation, morning yoga and evening meditation. The guest rooms are clean and spacious and pleasant, there is a nice outside balcony,...

If you are looking for a piece of zen paradise, Kin Hin Center is the place for you. We booked a 5 days meditation and yoga retreat at the center and it was one of the highpoints of our trip to India. The center is well located in the peaceful village of Pachaloor, just minutes away from busy Trivandrum and...

Karen and Sivan's new location is beautiful amongst the palm trees, 2 minute walk to the river and sea. Roof top is great for meditation as it's covered so no sun beating down on you and there is a balcony area for relaxing outside the rooms. Karen is a great hostess and both she and Sivan can give you whatever...

I traveled for months through India looking for meditation centers. Kin-Hin was certainly the greatest one. There's simply too much to say and this reviews are mostly helpful when they´re short, so like all great experiences, I think that most of it will remain only to myself to appreciate fully. However, this is what people probably should know. The best...

We had an amazing short yoga vacation at Kin-Hin Zen Meditation Centre. Karen is an extremely kind and warm hearted person and an excellent guide to help one practice meditation not to mention a very hospitable and friendly host, with her contagious smile. Never practiced yoga, the way we did with Sivan, learnt and mastered a few more asanas and...
