      A Treasure!

    The Center at Ananda Laurelwood is a treasure I return to again and again! There is a peace and preciousness that permeates the grounds and is nurtured by the staff and student-residents of the campus. I love to walk the property at sunrise and sunset, attend the yoga and meditation sessions, and participate in classes and karma yoga activities. Every retreat and program I have attended has left me feeling more deeply connected with myself and transformed from the inside out. I will be back again and again!

      Awesome week!

    I came to Ananda tired and in need of changing pace and chilling out. I wanted some structure and community but not too much. Ananda seemed to offer just that with meals, meditation and yoga. But it was more than that. I entered an incredible community of people who welcomed me with such openness, I immediately felt settled and so glad to be there. It was great to share meals and sit in meditation together and then find a new pace and rhythm to relax and retune. I was able to do that to my own amazement and I feel due to the support of the community along with the beautiful grounds and cozy comforting room I looked so forward to relaxing and reading in at different times during the day. My days were spent meditating, doing yoga, eating and reading, with big energizing hikes in the afternoon. I also got to chant kirtan with the community one night as well as participate in a workshop a couple of days while I was there. Definitely go if you are looking to recharge and like the idea of some community, food is fantastic and the people, so open and loving. Thanks Ananda, see you next year!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

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.
