Swami Sankarananda

About The Teacher

"I am a simple pilgrim. I've walked across the USA for two and a half years and now travel from town to town in a tiny motorhome emblazoned with the telling words "Yoga for Peace". I serve the divine in all and support our universal journey to find the happiness and peace for which we search.

My path has taken me through India and Sannyasa (renunciation of lower "self") of the great teacher Adi Sankaracharya's, and more recently Sri Swami Sivanandaji's "Saraswati" lineage, thus I am called a "Swami". I honor equally all beings, faiths and paths. There is but one Truth that all of the great teachers speak of and each of us are children of that Truth. The goal of each of us is finally to know Peace, which is attained internally through purification and relinquishment reaching equanimity of mind (variously called Yoga, Surrender, Submission, Faith, Selflessness, etc) and externally through abiding kindness.

I travel to offer kindness, to inspire, to demonstrate living in Peace, and to share the ancient and universal teachings of Yoga through talks, workshops and practices. The guidance is practical, it includes some philosophy, examples and stories and focuses on practices that you can implement to bring peace and joy into your life."

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

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.
