About The Teacher


Juan José, "Chito" Torres, began his practice of Ashtanga Yoga with Rosa Maria Sandoval and then followed the path of Iyengar Yoga. I am currently practicing with Master Patricia Awuapara, at the Iyengar Peru Yoga Center.

He gave the Iyengar Orientation Course to the Vive Yoga Study teachers, directed by Daniela Jimenez.

He was also part of the teachers at the Yogamar Festival in Los Organos.

He has participated in different Seminars and Workshops of Yoga with Master H.S. Arun, and Master Santanam; as well as the open course and Therapeutic Yoga with Lois Steinberg, direct disciples of BKS Iyengar.

He is currently in Teacher Training with Professors Pedro Pessoa and Camila de Lucca from the Iyengar Yoga Center in Florianopolis, Brazil.

In November 2017, he obtained the Certification for Teaching Yoga Iyengar with Master Sri Faeq Biria, who came to Lima from the Iyengar Center in France to qualify the first group of teachers in Peru; with this learning he improves his practice and teaching in group and private classes.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
