Elana Cydney Vollen

I see the value of practicing yoga on a broad spectrum - from the breathwork of pranayama to the engaging, strengthening, heating aspects of Vinyasa yoga to the calming, releasing, rejuvenation aspects of Yin and Restorative Yoga. I teach along this full spectrum and believe the goal of yoga is to be embodied, no matter what style of yoga you are doing.  I have a special place in my heart for sharing yoga with an aging population and making sure they practice safely and with embodied wisdom.  Once again, on the other side of the spectrum, I am a surfer and love to share how yoga can inform, improve, and unwind one's surfing practice.  I live in Fairfax, California and lead yoga and surf retreats to Sayulita Mexico in January.

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:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
