About us

A woman is highly-attuned and deeply receptive.

 She requires deep and sensual nourishment to exist in the relaxed state that enables her body, mind and spirit to move with ease through the cycles of her life. 

 The fast-paced modern world can obstruct her connection to the natural rhythms within – there is simply too much to do and too much to be.

 When the messages of her body are ignored, the connection to the wellspring of power within her is severed. 

 Our retreat does not promise to awaken the Goddess within you. 

 We know a woman is much more than a Goddess; she is flesh, blood, spirit and bone; she is the moon, the sea, the flowers and the earth. There is nothing she is not and nothing she cannot be. 

 Our embodiment retreat calls her back to the knowing within; back to her natural feminine state of deep peace, joy, integrated shadow, balanced energy, creativity, security, orgasmic connection and inner-knowing. 

 It is from this place of embodiment that her gifts flow freely. 

Through 10 days of yoga, meditation, ceremony, breath work and sacred feminine practices, a diet of delicious vegan and vegetarian food, in a secluded retreat space on the paradise island of Koh Phangan, we guide women back home to these gifts… back to their Raw Essence. 

"Miriam's classes gave me a totally new approach and understanding to yoga from what I experienced in the last 6 years I’ve been practising. I never felt more connected to my body and my femininity than after a class with her, especially after her women’s workshop. She made me aware of my own power and capacity during every single practice. I am very grateful for this experience." Ronit Zafran

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.
