Whimsical & Inspiring Thank you for understanding better than me why I came on Retreat. Thank you for opening my mind and releasing all kinds of insights I barely had about myself & the surrounding world. Thank you for this wonderful and magical cabin, isolated, safe and cosy just as it is, with plenty of inspiring books. I am grateful for lots of things since my stay here and also to have been able to be here & to have met you. Thank you Chloe 2019 “True life changing experience ” The vibe of the place, the learning and insights from Teresa, and the food!!... everything helps to get in touch with your true self. Teresa knows how to put you at ease and is a wonderful teacher. I learned so much and carried most of the practice now in my daily life to continue my journey towards a better version of myself - with a still mind and a lighter heart.Will be back at some point."

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.
