About us

Join Yogaville’s senior sannyasi (monk) and beloved teacher, Mataji, for a basic meditation workshop to establish and develop your practice.

A calm and focused mind can achieve anything. The beautiful science of concentration provides perfect tools to reach that profound state of being, beyond the normal awareness, called meditation. With sincere and regular practice, it can be experienced.

Meditation soothes the mind, reduces stress, and brings you in touch with the peace within. It provides documented emotional and physiological benefits which enable you to become the master of your own mind.

Experience the benefits of meditation as you learn:

  • Daily life as a preparation for meditation
  • Ways to develop a “be here now” consciousness
  • The joy in transforming yourself
  • A variety of approaches to begin a meditation practice

Regardless of your previous experience, you will go home with knowledge and inspiration to develop the mental clarity, calmness, and concentration that can lead to success in all areas of life.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim
 

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.
