Karen Iles

About us

Karen began practicing yoga a decade ago, to counter stress-induced pain when she worked in a London ad agency. Yoga helped with her physical ailments, and then it took her down the path of examining the patterns of her mind, how she handled her emotions and the life she had created. 

In 2013 she left for Rishikesh, India, for a yoga teacher training and a Vipassana mindfulness meditation retreat. It was the start of a life-changing journey that led to her discovering Breathwork in Bali and committing to sharing these techniques. 

She has been teaching yoga and meditation in Fiji, Sydney, UK and Jordan since 2014, and breathwork since 2017.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

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.
