Maria Camille

About The Teacher

Maria Camille is an extreme sports pioneer and peak performance mind/body expert who trained using internal martial arts principles to hone her skills to achieve 4 world and 3 national championships in extreme sports. For over 25 years, Maria has practiced and applied the energy arts and principles for training in sports and also for business success. 

At the Dao House, Maria shares her regime, BaGua Flow. This life-giving, inner-outer body make-over combines motion and meditation into a poetically choreographed life-affirming breath-flow sequence which incorporates the use of large Chinese Tai Chi Fans to magnify chi (life-force energy), personal power, balance, coordination, and focus. 

Maria traveled worldwide as a guest artist to resorts and retreats teaching BaGua Flow while at the same time providing the locations a beautiful storytelling magazine.  She also gives teacher trainings so others can provide BaGua Flow classes and travel as she did.

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.
