About The Teacher

Ardent for adventure and eager for a challenge, Mackenzie (RYT-500) fled the mainland in search of something greater than herself. This journey immediately drew her to yoga and for two months she devoted her energy to self study (svadhyaya) through the eightfold path. She has spent the years since as a dedicated student to the practice both on and off of her mat. By shedding that which no longer serves her and making room in her life to allow for positive change and growth, she is honored to spread health and happiness to those around her.

Mackenzie has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology from The University of Dayton, and is currently obtaining her Master’s in Consciousness from JFKU in the San Francisco Bay area. She finds that her studies supplement both her private and group instruction by integrating and applying knowledge of all aspects of the human body. Off the mat, Mackenzie enjoys creating raw food, jogging with her pup, and traveling the world.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
