About The Teacher

Debby Dowling, E-RYT 500 is a yoga instructor, pilates instructor, Reiki/Karuna Reiki Master and an intuitive empath.

As a young child, I was always able to see energy. Things seemed to pulse and move on their own and I saw colors everywhere, even when I closed my eyes. I always thought everyone could! But when I found out they didn’t, I just thought I was weird. Now I know better. Since then I’ve taken many courses to better understand my gifts. And I truly believe we all have them!

So it’s probably not a surprise that I left the corporate world years ago to embark on my own personal journey. Now I teach yoga, pilates and of course, do my spiritual work!!! And they all seem to cross over. You won’t be able to take one of my yoga classes without getting a “spiritual bomb” or two thrown in. All with a  smile on your face of course!

I’m a 500 E-RYT Yoga Instructor, Comprehensive Pilates Instructor, Group Fitness Instructor and Nutrition Specialist. I’ve been lucky enough to train with some amazing teachers including: Sean Corn, Dice lida-Klein, Briohny Smith, MacKenzie Miller, Claudine & Honza Lafond, Kelley Doyle and Micheal Miller just to name a few! I am forever a student myself and constantly learning and growing. 

I’ve also earned my MS in Marketing from Northwestern University. But after many years in the corporate sector working my way up the corporate ladder I decided to make the switch to something that fed my soul. 

 Now, I believe in working the mind, body and soul. I dedicate my time to teaching yoga, pilates and fitness. 

 I'm so passionate about working out the body, mind and spirit I wrote a book on it. 

You can purchase my book entitled Over 40 and Still Hot on Amazon. It’s available in both kindle and paperback.

I am a certified Reiki Master, Karuna Reiki Master, Crystal Healer as well as a Soul Realignment Practitioner. I’m also a clairvoyant (seeing), clairaudient (hearing), and clairsentient (feeling) psychic. I’m currently studying to become a Level II Soul Realignment Practitioner. It’s truly beautiful and transformational work!

I live in beautiful Southern Orange County with my husband and our three rescue dogs.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

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.
