About us

Our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training serves as a vessel, allowing us to share our knowledge, understanding, and experience of yoga in all its depth, beauty and diversity; to teach and live with integrity and authenticity; and to inspire the next generation of yoga instructors towards a life of service. We achieve this in part by including only the most learned, sincere, and experienced teachers and practitioners on our team, and by keeping our trainings grounded in Satya (Truth).

Our Yoga Teacher Training: Balancing the practical, theoretical and experiential aspects of yoga, our 200 hour Bali Yoga Teacher Training course is designed to provide you with a well-rounded, comprehensive training, giving you the tools, techniques, and confidence that allow you to begin teaching at a professional level.

Believing that the ability to ‘lead from the heart’ is inherent in everyone, we’ll have you begin ‘practice teaching’ right away, tuning you into your natural gifts from the start. You’ll first work in pairs and then in small groups—developing your style and poise—before moving on, towards the end of the training, to lead the entire class through a sequence of your own creation.

Our twice-daily asana classes (taught in the Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, and Yin Yoga traditions by veteran instructors) include both pranayama and meditation practice, and our ‘Posture Clinics’ provide greater insight into specific asanas by exploring and studying them in depth. Areas of focus include: proper alignment; anatomy, physiology and kinesiology; health benefits; symbolism; Sanskrit/common names; as well as modifications and variations.

Required Readings

The Wisdom of Yoga: A Seeker’s Guide to Extraordinary Living – Stephen Cope

Anatomy for Yoga, DVD – Paul Grilley

Highly recommended Reading

Teaching Yoga: Essential Foundations and Techniques– Mark Stephens

The Key Muscles of Yoga, Scientific Keys, Volume 1 – Ray Long

The Key Poses of Yoga, Scientific Keys, Volume 2 – Ray Long

Note: “The Wisdom of Yoga” is required reading and “Anatomy for Yoga” is required viewing. If you cannot watch the DVD before coming to the training, there will be a viewing on one of the afternoons off during the course.  The rest of the books are primarily meant to serve as reference material, both before and after the course. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with them prior to the training; do not feel obligated to read them in their entirety (though we highly recommend it!) For those traveling to our teacher trainings, there is no need to bring the books with you. That said, many of them are available on Kindle/as e-books. An exception is ‘The Wisdom of Yoga’, available in hard copy only.

We are committed to creating inclusive spaces in yoga where people of all beliefs, backgrounds and cultures are welcome. We recognize and celebrate the diversity that exists in this world and seek to ensure that all individuals have access to the transformational power of yoga.

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

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.
