About us

Experience five days of deep restoration, reflection, and intention. Using the profound practice of yoga nidra guided meditation, we will begin to restore the body, clear the mind, and shift the habitual patterns that keep you from being calm, clear, and balanced. Yoga nidra uses the biological process of sleep to systematically release stored physical, emotional, and mental tensions. Through the process, you can begin to let go of the old beliefs and habits that keep you locked in your past. Allow emotions to be experienced knowing that you have the capacity to feel them from a grounded and calm inner presence. Then, take this felt sense of being back into your personal life, family life, work life, and love life.

We will move our bodies, clear our minds, and create intentions to live not from your unconscious past programming but from a new perspective — the perspective of knowing your true self. All you have to do is show up, lie down, and let go; yoga nidra will do the work. We will use two different lineages of yoga nidra: iRest, and Integrative Amrit Method for our inner exploration. Join us as we deeply rest, restore and rewrite our life.

Please bring blankets, yoga mat, eye pillow, and anything you need to lie comfortably on the floor for yoga nidra.

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.
