"There is beauty, light, and limitless power within each of us. One only has to learn and practice the techniques to unleash these gifts."

A competitive gymnast during youth, the physical aspects of yoga certainly appealed to me. The total life transformation was something I wasn’t expecting. I walked into my first class in 2001, and since then, yoga has fueled the inspiration for nearly everything I do.

In 2008, I started Shifting and Inspired, a blend of yoga, reiki, and body awareness, to help guide you to your highest and best life through joy, laughter, and movement. I hold healing retreats that blend yoga with energy work.

I have over 1,000 hours of teaching experience, and am approved through Yoga Alliance to offer continuing education. I teach vinyasa flow, prenatal, and restorative yoga, always with a focus on alignment and a sense of curiosity. Since I also do massage, you will probably receive some nuggets of anatomy.

I am a reiki master teacher who attunes students to all levels of reiki.

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 inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
