Directions

Each course explores a different region of the Park. With our staff of resident Yosemite experts, we specialize in visiting less crowded, yet stunningly beautiful corners of the Park. We have decades of collective experience in exploring Yosemite National Park, and have a wide range of hidden sanctuaries, secluded lakes, outdoor granite-slab yoga “studios”, and comfortable campsites in our routes and itineraries. If you want to also see some of the more popular icons and destinations, there is ample time at the beginning and end of each course.

Once you complete your registration for a course, we will send you detailed directions and a map to the meeting place for your course. This will usually be a campground inside the park boundary on the Tioga Pass Road.

      Yoga Jambalaya 2019

    Heather has a way of bringing the outside inside, and helping to connect people to nature right from the start of her yoga class. A wonderful way to stir a pot of something delicious! Jambalaya has always been amazing, but it keeps getting better

      100% Worth every penny!

    This trip couldn't have come at a better time in my life. I was finally able to quiet my heavily distracted and fast paced mind with the guided meditations and yoga poses taught by Jana. She meets you at your level and provides you with a variety of meditation styles to take home and practice whenever you like. Patrick prepared the best meals for the group and even snuck in a sweet dessert once in awhile. Overall, this retreat was much needed and I am very grateful to have been a part of it. The connections that were made on this trip will stay with me for a lifetime and I look forward to my next trip with them.

      Women of Color Backpacking and Yoga Retreat

    I've been backpacking and climbing for over nine years, and this was one of the most special, healing, and joyous backpacking trips I've ever been on. I really loved spending time in the mountains with women of color--sharing space to talk about our experiences, joys, and pains in the outdoors, and cultivating the healing that comes with being heard and seen (and from plunges in freezing alpine lakes). Thank you to the trip leaders, Grace and Miho, for holding such beautiful space, and to Balanced Rock for providing this magical and necessary space!

      Amazing Journey

    My yoga and backpacking retreat, couldn't have gone any better, this was a life changing experience were reconnecting to nature and spirit was the key, the instructors (Breezy and JP) are absolutely exceptional yoga instructors, they care tons about the welfare of the group, the food was super healthy and convenient, meditations were beyond my expectations, the place was fantastic and the instructors were super knowledge of our surrounding environment. ***** 5 stars Highly Recommended :)!!!!!

      Amazing and rejuvenating.

    I attended the Writing from the Heart retreat. From the moment I stepped into the campsite, I felt loved, welcomed, and safe. Our yoga practices were centering and our writing time helped me to reignite my love of writing. Heather Sullivan was an amazing leader. I am so thankful for my time in Yosemite. The peace and rest I found there are truly indescribable.

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:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
 

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.
