Experience Malibu like you’ve never experienced it before (or maybe even for the first time).

Join us, husband and wife team, Ted & Lauren McDonald, on our first annual hiking, yoga and cooking retreat in Malibu!

Malibu is not only where we live, but it’s also where we play. We will show you around our playground in the healthiest, most fun possible way, from our kitchen to our yoga studio to the trails! Every day, you will lace up your hiking shoes and hike in and around the thousands of acres that surround Malibu. When you’re not hiking, you’ll be practicing your best yoga pose as Ted leads you through a practice at our luxuriously serene and beautiful Malibu studio. You’ll step off your mat and become a master of healthy cuisine as Lauren, a former pastry chef turned healthy food junky, guides you through a daily cooking class. She will teach you everything she knows about how to nourish your body and your taste buds. Yes, healthy food can taste good, and it doesn’t have to be hard to prepare. Lauren will show you how.

If you’re looking to reconnect with yourself and/or a partner, connect with nature, jump start your way to a healthier you, or just take a break from it all, this is the retreat for you.

Space is limited so as to keep it intimate, so read on for retreat details and cost information, and sign up soon!



MORE DETAILS:

You will check in on Thursday July 27th. Ted will lead everyone through a relaxing yoga class, after which we will enjoy a welcome dinner. You’ll start your first full day on Friday July 28th with an hour long heart opening yoga practice led by Ted. All poses can be modified to account for your skill level, so beginners and advanced practitioners will all find something in this class.

Following your practice, you will feast on a heart-healthy, farm-to-table breakfast prepared by Lauren. From there, the group will be divided so that some will go hiking with Ted, and the others will stay in the kitchen with Lauren for a cooking lesson. Be prepared to learn how to make easy-to-prepare healthy meals for the entire family, healthy, heart-friendly desserts, and even learn some of Lauren’s insider tips from culinary school to make cooking easier and more efficient.

Following the morning activities, everyone will come back together for a deliciously nutritious lunch. The groups will switch activities for the afternoon.

The day will end with a good shower (you’re going to need it), some down time (perhaps a walk on the beach?) and a deliciously relaxing yin yoga practice. Once you’re totally blissed out and utterly spent, we will all sit down under the stars and twinkle lights, noshing on a meal of fresh ingredients that you all helped to prepare, while we discuss love, life, goals, dreams, sugar, spice and everything nice.

The day will end with a good shower. Saturday will be a repeat of Friday. Sunday will mark the end of our retreat, but not before getting in a morning yoga class and a final healthy breakfast. And ok, maybe a nice walk on the beach!

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
