About This Center

AtmaVicara is designed for holistic and transformational experiences. It is the creation of a few friends who experienced profound changes in our lives & health after traveling the world, practicing meditation & yoga.
Being inspired to share this with others we make Alternative Yoga Travels in multi-languages. All we offer is based on our personal experiences and our values; honesty, kindness, genuine and quality.

Kristine organized a trip for me and my wife to Armenia. It was a highlight of our traveling. She took care of even the smallest details and we could totally trust in her ability to make sure we had a great time. I and my wife can strongly recommend AtmaVicara. SWAMI PUJAN, AUSTRALIA I took part in yoga retreat and spiritual journey in Armenia with Kristine, AtmaVicara. The trip was wonderful. I can only recommend her for both traveling and practicing yoga together. BARBARA, HUNGARY As a yoga teacher, Cristina is very aware of her student's bodies and thresholds and has a knack for providing the perfect adjustment you didn't know you needed. PRESCOTT ELLE, USA Eleonora was my teacher throughout a month-long 200hours YTTC. I appreciate her for bringing in encouragement of freeing oneself from the pressure and expectations that come from modern society; to not bring this pressure into the yoga practice, but rather move from a place of deeper internal values such as self-love, body-positivity, acceptance, and inclusiveness. EMILIE K. PEDERSON, DENMARK Eleonora is an incredible instructor with an authentic presence that commands attention. Her spiritual vitality and passionate fervor keep me connected in the practice and provide a sense of purpose on the mat. Eleonora has an exceptional ability to personally support each student in a group setting while keeping attentive to breathing and posture detail. ANASTASCIA DUCHESSE, CA

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.
