Naren K. Schreiner

About The Teacher

Naren K. Schreiner began his own spiritual search when he was 14, exploring different paths and teachers. Two years later he chose to take initiation into the lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda. At age 18 he became a monk in the Self-Realization Fellowship ashram (monastery) of his Satguru, Paramahansa Yogananda. For the next 14 years, Naren lived as a brahmachari (monastic yogi), studying religion, practicing yoga and living the pure, disciplined life of a monk.

Naren, with the supportive guidance of his spiritual counselors, chose to leave the SRF ashram and expand his lifework. Continuing his life as a ‘freelance yogi’, he founded Sangita Yoga to be a resource for authentic learning and experience of India’s sacred music. He was ordained as a pujari (Hindu priest) of the Kali Mandir Ramakrishna Ashram where he continues to serve as a resident and itinerant pujari. Traveling widely, he brings worship, inspiration and guidance to homes and spiritual communities of different gurus, traditions and affiliations, with the sole desire to serve Divine Mother and Her devotees, thereby honoring his Gurus and beloved India.

Naren has released several albums of sacred music, including his latest release Temple of Silence. Visit:

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

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.
