About The Teacher

My partner and I teach partner acrobatics, also known as Acro Yoga.  Over the last four years we have taught in a variety of capacities.  Locally we teach a weekly series.  Once every few months we teach a weekend Immersion.  We routinely teach at Acro Festivals.  The last two years we have gone on acro teaching tours through Europe and South America.  
Acro Yoga usually consists of two people working together through acrobatic movements.  Usually there is a base who lays on the ground with his/her legs up.  The flyer is moved through various poses on the base's feet.  There are static poses and other movements which move in a circle.  More advanced practitioners achieve what is called "flow" where the practitioners can move from pose to seamlessly without having to speak much to each other.  Acro practice has many benefits from increasing your level of health to reintroducing you to a new kind of play.  Acro teaches a kind of healthy, non-sexual, intimate touch which is often lost as a person grows out of childhood.
Our goal is to branch out and teach more places to more people.  We want to break into the yoga retreat scene because there are thousands all over the world and most facilities appropriate for yoga instruction also work for acro yoga instruction.
This is an example of what we teach.  This is what we do.

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

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.
