Description

“Yoga is Permaculture and Permaculture is Yoga Life. Tune to the divinity in Mother Nature and be able to follow her direction daily as a sadhana… This is  the formula to  attain to the state of ‘”permanent culture ” or residing and attainment in yoga and permanently being in blissful union with the divine mother.” —Swami Sitaramananda

Permaculture can be understood as ecological design that can help regenerate the the planet and its people. Yoga fits perfectly with Permaculutre; it helps to bring peace, balance and harmony to the inner and outer world. Yoga and Permaculture practices can support each other in a symbiotic way through the ethics and principles of both.

This course will cover the foundations of permaculture, including the 12 principles, 3 ethics, and some basic design applications. It will also include guided nature walks and opportunities to connect with the beautiful ecosystem at the Yoga Farm in an outdoor classroom setting. Participants will gain practical tools that they can apply in their daily lives to rekindle and strengthen their connection and understanding of nature and the divine.

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.
