About us

The practice of meditation and yoga has a beneficial effect on more than the physical body. Yogis also recognize the existence of a subtle energy body, which plays an important role in our mental and physical health and our spiritual development.

The most important features of the subtle energy body are the 7 energy centers (chakras) which are located in the central channel (sushumna) of the energy body.

In this retreat*, we will:

  • learn an effective and practical meditation technique to become aware of the subtle energy body and the 7 energy centers (chakras)
  • use meditation, yoga asanas and pranayama to direct energy upward in the sushumna and awaken and stimulate the chakras
  • explore the connection between the chakras and our psychological and emotional states
  • learn how to transform negative habits and thought patterns into positive spiritual qualities
  • experience a devotional evening of chanting and meditation using sound and visualization to open and stimulate the chakras

Why Retreat?

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

Connect with nature and remember my spiritual self is timeless Zoe

Retreat Guru's Vision

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.
