Live Alive Adventures

About us

Live Alive Adventures is a movement that began as a conversation about a dream on the front lawn of BIG Power Yoga in Houston, Texas. Amara saw an opportunity to share her passion and experience of adventure and travel with the vibrant, thriving Baptiste Yoga community that Nancy and Laura had built in Houston. That vision became a reality in 2015 with BIG Retreats' first trip to Greece. It became clear on our first trip that “retreat” was not the word for what we do, so we changed the name to BIG Adventures. We live and travel to lean in to life, to wake up, to be amazed, to be surprised, take risks, and have fun. We don’t travel or practice yoga to escape, we travel and practice to show up. Three years after that initial conversation, BIG Adventures had taken on a life of its own, and was ready to expand out into its own expression of entrepreneurship and creativity. We are thrilled to share with you, Live Alive Adventures. We invite you to give up the need to escape and embrace life full on. Your life is waiting for you and so are we. Join us.

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.
