About us


The Accessible Yoga Teacher Training program focuses on how to make the Yoga teachings available to everyone, regardless of their level of physical ability. We’ll explore the many ways that Yoga practice can be modified to suit students with disabilities, physical challenges, and seniors. This can range from teaching gentle Yoga classes, to teaching entire classes in a chair or in a bed. We’ll discuss group classes as well as one-on-one sessions.

A large part of the program is dedicated to the study and teaching of Yoga philosophy, which includes how to prepare and present a public talk. Together, these skills help teachers gain a clear understanding of the Yoga teachings so that they can teach in almost any setting with confidence and skill. The goal of the training is to support you in designing a specialty yoga program for a specific population of your choosing.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

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.
