Menu/Cuisine

All food is vegetarian. Meals are served buffet style and the vast majority of dishes are gluten free. Meals are usually cooked by volunteers or donated, so we are not able to cater to specific dietary requests. However, a simple meal of rice, steamed vegetables and tofu can be prepared for people on restricted diets. There is a visitor’s fridge to store supplementary food items but there is no access to cooking facilities.

Accommodation is in single rooms with shared bathroom facilities, and central heating. Women and men stay in separate areas.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
 

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.
