The Resilience Retreat with Transformational Breath®

About us

A bit about our Retreat

Eventually you need to learn to take care of yourself.  Because when you’re not paying attention, life delivers some harsh lessons.

If you’ve run yourself into the ground, if you’ve stopped smiling, if you’re struggling to get back on your feet, if you’ve lost your way and don’t know where to look… then this is your opportunity to escape to a beautiful place,  rediscover your resilience, have fun and bounce back with Transformational Breath®.

There’s a lot of…pressure these days. Everyone is so afraid that they are going to fail and lose something. And maybe that's true on one level but there is always something new to find, somewhere deeper to go . It’s worth remembering that you only need one thing, and that one thing is your breath. Your breath can help you succeed in life even during difficult times.

Escape with Elif and Sarah with years of experience in health, wellness and breath. They will facilitate your breath, helping you to integrate accumulated stress, and tap into your inner roots of resilience,

Breathe, grow, think, enjoy, relax and feel very different when you return home.

Book yourself a limited space on the Autumn Resilience Retreat and enjoy 4 wonderful days in the beautiful Normandy French countryside.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

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.
