About The Teacher

Hi, I’m Linda Barnby, founder of (contact info blocked), a community of women wanting more joy, meaning, fulfillment and connection. I also lead two groups for women in the Greater Orlando area with social and educational activities happening several times a month.

I’ve practiced law and owned my own law firm in the Orlando area for decades. While practicing law, I founded the National Association of Entrepreneurs and, as Chapter Director, led 5 chapters simultaneously for 2 years. Prior to law school, I taught gifted education in public school. (I am adamant that everyone is gifted – whether they are aware of their gifts or not!)

I’ve re-designed my own life numerous times due to tragedy, adversity, as well as by choice. My “super powers” include insight, organization, communication, effervescent optimism and a sense of humor.

My mission, in every iteration of my work has always been to guide others to make the most of their talents, resources and their lives. I celebrate the opportunity to lead women toward well-crafted, joyful, meaningful lives, through the Design a Life You Love© Program.

I’ve invested thousands of dollars and dedicated hundreds of hours in training with some of the most successful life, career and entrepreneur coaches in the industry over the past decade. Leading women to step into their own best selves is my greatest joy.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
