About us


Our R&R program is a powerful way to restore your peace of mind and well-being. Through the daily practice of yoga, yoga nidra and healthy diet you will activate the innate healing wisdom of your body. Rest and Relaxation at AYI is an opportunity to step away from a stressful modern lifestyle into an experience of relaxation and rejuvenation that will leave you feeling balanced and inspired!


Stress is an epidemic. It has been identified as the cause of many illnesses and addictions. We provide a practical approach to managing stress through yoga and meditation classes that are accessible to everyone.


How often have you tried to change your diet and failed? Once, twice, always? We get it. And we can help. Our meals are all organic, vegetarian and served hot daily. We take the effort out of eating healthy!


We don’t just provide a temporary reprive from your stressful life. We empower people with tools and techniques to take relief, relaxation and balance home and into your daily life. Whether you’re here for a day or a week, we know you will find something that helps you make a profound shift in your health and well-being.


Our community practices yoga & meditation at least twice daily. With a hatha yoga posture class in the mornings, and a noontime guided meditation, called yoga nidra.


Our healing arts therapists are standing by with multiple types of massage, holistic health consults and more. You can learn more, or book an appointment before you arrive here.


Our chef and kitchen staff provide delicious, inspired vegetarian meals. The food we serve is not only vegetarian and organic, most is from a local farm, Crone’s Cradle Conserve.


We encourage the practice of sacred silence from the hours of 10pm to 10am daily, giving an opportunity for introspection and self-study in alignment with our core principles.

Venue Highlights

We are located in Salt Springs, Florida, amid the tranquil beauty of the Ocala National Forest on Lake Kerr, a spring-fed lake of nearly 3,000 acres. Beneath a canopy of towering Live Oaks, the six-acre campus features lush tropical gardens, stone decks and walkway, and a peaceful sand beach. The property includes a main house, lodge, main office, guest cabin, and brand new Healing Arts Center. We run programs year-long in service of our mission to bring authentic yogic wisdom to the world. If you’re not sure about taking a program yet, we also welcome guests for R&R.

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.
