About us

These times are calling us to wage truth on all fronts: personal, social, and political. There is a call to speak out, reclaim our power, and fight for love and justice. Right now is a time for truth telling, reconciliation, and transformation from the inside out, and we can start with a radical yoga practice.

Yoga is not meant follow the rules. It is a powerful system of the body, mind, and spirit designed to disrupt old patterns of limitation and transform them into innovation and possibility. This practice will cut to the core of who we are and what we stand for. It will be a courageous practice that helps us cultivate the inner strength and boldness to fiercely dive into the stuck and disconnected places in ourselves and in our world. We are being called to rise to the occasion — not only for ourselves, but also for the well-being of people and planet. Sessions include:

· We Were Made For These Times: A grounding practice to presence ourselves and reconnect to what matters most. Through yoga, meditation, and discussion, we will orient ourselves in relationship to the world around us and explore the role of healing and practice in our collective well-being.

· Radical Healing: A compassionate practice that centers love and relationship in how we navigate chaos and catalyze change from the inside out.

· Truth and Reconciliation: A purifying practice using the chakra system to confront our limitations and liberate our life. Together we will practice courageous truth telling and compassionate dialogue as we navigate change, uncertainty, and healing. It will be a restorative practice that centers love and relationship in how we transform systems from the inside out.

· Taking Back Our Power: An empowering practice to reclaim our power and unleash our potential. We’ll explore how to live on purpose and activate change at a personal and collective level. We’ll get clear in purpose and ready to act.

Join Kerri Kelly for a radical practice where personal transformation meets powerful change. Please bring a yoga mat.

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.
