Doreen Bakstad

About The Teacher

An early interest in the connection of the body and mind led Doreen to the study of yoga in her teens and then onto taichi and Chinese Medicine soon after.  Inspired by the big changes that came to her own health, both mental and physical, Doreen has been practicing and teaching  Bodymind Acupressure for over 35 years, in Canada and internationally.  A gifted and fun teacher, her students clamor for more after every class.  Currently, Doreen works several months a year as Visiting Practitioner for Six Senses Resorts and Spas, in the middle East and the Maldives.

Why Retreat?

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

To feed my soul so that I may return to my students with more inspiration and love to share! Jennifer

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.
