About This Center

The Montreal centre was founded in 1959 by Swami Vishnudevananda who synthesized yoga philosphy into 5 principles to harmonize body, mind and spirit, leading to personal growth and inner peace. The hatha yoga classes taught at the centre combine the teachings of SwamiSivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda. It is the oldest Yoga Centre in North America.

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.
