You will be guided through a gentle traditional cleanse based on the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese, and Himalayan Medicine.

Science has shown that intermittent fasting, forest bathing, unplugging from digital devices, and spending time in nature has a number of benefits such as strengthening your immune system. relief from stress and inflammation, improved mental energy, memory, clarity, and concentration.

Panchakarma is the science of cleansing the body from ancient India. The treatments are performed with techniques, herbs, and oils appropriate to your constitution. The purpose is to profoundly relax the body and mind, improve the flow of energy by opening the srotas (channels of circulation), and prepare the body to eliminate excess doshas (vata, pitta, kapha) or toxins (aama) on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Individualized treatment plans are based on consultation and current body constitution.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
