After traveling the world for over 10 years, studying with Masters in yoga, permaculture, organic food production, Thai massage, meditation, Qi Gong, and many other modalities, and healing herself from chronic illnesses and a life revolving around doctor visits, she has found vibrant well-being and is passionate about spreading health and happiness, through deep connection to Self and Nature, and with the support of real foods and nutrition.

In addition to starting a personalized functional chef and health-consulting business in Miami in 2013 and co-running a popular vegan pop-up restaurant there, Amaya has written several recipe ebooks and a book of poetry. She is now based in Austin, TX, with a forest in her backyard.

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.
