The Reverends Bhavani and Bhagavan Metro bring a wealth of experience into their couples workshops; they have been married 54 years and have 40 years experience in Integral Yoga under the personal guidance of Sri Swami Satchidananda. They have a large extended family—6 children and spouses, 15 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. Their love and delight in the householder path shine throughout every aspect of their lives.



Wow… What a wonderful program!! It rejuvenated our relationship. Bhagavan and Bhavani are amazing, inspiring mentors. We have learned so much from the program. We wish the program could be a little longer. — Ami Shah

This was a way to increase our bonding as a husband and wife. We are going home with so much upliftment. — Past Participant

We took this program 3 years ago and now, with a second child, we felt we needed to refresh/reconnect with a repeat. We loved our first experience so much we came back! The real-life stories were so relatable. — Marianne

This workshop teaches couples, young and old, how to lovingly accept each other. The force of the Metros’ love is awesome and awe-inspiring. — Richard Pastore

Truth is One, Paths are Many. ~Sri Swami Satchidananda, Yogaville Founder

Why Retreat?

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

I go on retreat to remember who I really am. And I remember that I am alive, Deryk

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.
