About us

Joy began her discovery of spiritual practice while a university student living in a Transcendental Meditation community. Soon after feeling an inner call to move from the Midwest to California, she was introduced to the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. She has been a meditator for over 25 years.

Joy is a Certified Ananda Meditation teacher living at the Center at Ananda Laurelwood. She teaches classes in How to Meditate, leads Guided Meditation practice, and offers Spiritual Counseling at the retreat. Her goal is to focus on offering meditation to those residing in assisted living facilities, senior centers, and retirement communities.

Having been a teacher and tutor for many years, Joy loves supporting people in their inner growth.

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.
