About us

At Exhale Yoga Retreats we are always looking for possible new retreat locations. We spend time in locations of interest and connect with the local communities to feel out the vibe. We want to make sure our retreaters feel secure knowing that we have been there before, and trust that we can offer them the best adventure yoga retreat possible.
Discovering El Salvador a couple years ago, we initially went for a week, and loved it so much we stayed for a month!

From the moment we arrived we experienced a warm, welcoming energy. Our driver greeted us at the airport and took us for a short 45-minute drive to the tropical little beach town of El Tunco. We knew immediately that we wanted to share this special place with our retreat tribe!

A beautiful black sand beach with three amazing surf waves at its doorstep, breathtaking sunsets and a local community full of smiles, this funky little beach town stole our heart. 

Exhale Yoga Retreats is so stoked to be doing our second annual retreat here! We can't wait to go back and spend our days doing yoga, surfing (all levels), exploring, relaxing on the beach, and enjoying the good vibes.

Come join us and discover the beauty of El Salvador!

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.
