About us

Hey, Benny Fergusson here (founder of the Movement Monk project), 

I loved sports and being active as a kid. My body supported me to play elite level volleyball, ride motorbikes, skateboard and just generally have fun... until I injured my spine in a freak accident. 

From that day I couldn’t stand up straight or walk down the street without feeling in agony. Chronic tension was acting like a restrictive layer that was present when I performed any physical activity. 

Since then, I’ve spent most of my life exploring ancient mind-body practices, martial and healing arts, to discover how to unbind and liberate the human body and mind. 

Today, my spine moves better than ever and I love the way my body feels. I understand how to connect with the wisdom of my body and I’m looking forward to sharing what I know with you. 

Over the years I’ve worked with hundreds of people to support them to release tension from their bodies, and cultivate deep levels of whole-body strength and range of motion, so they can not only perform better physically, but also mentally and emotionally.

But don't take my word for it. You can check out what my students are saying here:

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

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.
