About us

What is consciousness? Who am I? These timeless questions lead us in search of answers that can only be found when we seek the Self within.

We are all the pure light of consciousness. We are that infinitely peaceful, unchanging existence. Join us to discover this truth for yourself.

There are many paths that lead us to this universal truth. Explore two of the traditional yogic paths, Jnana Yoga and Raja Yoga, during this experiential workshop. Jnana Yoga (non-dualism) is an internal path of wisdom through self-inquiry which leads to an awareness of that ever-present consciousness within. Raja Yoga is a path of dedication, discipline and devotion that uses willpower and specific yogic practices (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) to achieve the same goal.

Take the opportunity to seek the Self this weekend. Explore, study, and practice the great yogic paths that enable us to experience ourselves as peace and joy, love and light.

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.
