Marta Wanderlust - Integration Specialist and Yoga Teacher

About The Teacher

Marta is a gifted, passionate, and highly experienced teacher and student of Yoga and the teachings of Advaita Vedanta. She has first discovered Yoga when 14 years old, and right away felt the mysterious familiarity of the practice. She began her professional training with a Jivamukti Yoga immersion, under the guidance of Yogeswari – one of the most senior teachers of the method. Marta was certified as an Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow instructor in a traditional school in Goa, India. In India, she also had the privilege to meet her Spiritual teacher Rishi Sudhir of Tiruvannamalai, a dedicated follower of Advaita Vedanta with decades of experience in Pranayama, meditation, and a depth of Vedic knowledge. Aside of the studies of Vedanta, she has also spent time at the ashram of Sri Ramana Maharshi, set at the foot of the sacred mountain Arunachala. Marta’s love for the practice of being, Yin Yoga, comes as a result of her training with Joshua Summers, an experienced teacher and one of the original students of Paul Grilly and Sarah Powers. Her studies with Joshua initiated her into the system of meridians and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Marta has also undertaken numerous meditation retreats, including the Goenka Vipassana and the Mindfulness retreats organized by the London Buddhist Centre. She has taught at diverse centers in Europe, Asia, and South America and spent almost three years serving as a 200 hr YTT instructor at Sampoorna Yoga, in India. Currently, she is based in Peru, sharing her practice with the guests of a variety of Plant Medicine healing centres, and leads personal Yoga retreats internationally. She has a passion for culture and tradition, and travels extensively in her mission to experience, grow, and develop a platform to share with others, spreading the message of love and compassion. In the last couple of years, Marta has been studying with the plant medicines and traditions of Central and South America. She has had the opportunity to study under the guidance of shamans and medicine people from various communities and traditions, including Shipibo, Mexica, Mestizo, Quechua, Lakota, and Kogi. Her studies across diverse traditions devoted to understanding both our human physicality and the pathways to Spirit have led her to understand that all paths are complementary, and ultimately lead to the very same realization of Unity. She is deeply grateful to all of her teachers, past and present, human and non-human, for shining their light under her stumbling feet.

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

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.
