About us

Like the whales who gracefully navigate their winter migration down the California coast each year, we must cultivate a fluid mixture of perseverance, clear reckoning, skillful navigation of life's currents, and devotion to arrive at the extraordinary health and spiritual insight that yoga and Ayurveda promise. It is a deeply personal journey that is nourished by a fulfilling and sustainable personal practice. Three essential questions to ask before setting off are: What do I really want in my life? What do I really need? What are the most effective means for tapping into the source of healing and wisdom within myself?

This seven-day retreat will explore how to find truly satisfying answers to these questions and encourage a flexible approach to committed practice using the tools of Shadow Yoga and Ayurveda. A set sequence of Shadow Yoga practices will be taught in a step-by-step progression to promote body memory, refinement, and to facilitate home practice. All levels are welcome; yoga experience is recommended.

Please bring a yoga mat and a journal.

Recommended reading: Remete, Shadow Yoga; Svoboda, Hidden Secret of Ayurveda and Prakriti.

Why Retreat?

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

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane
 

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.
