About The Teacher

Michelle ‘Nayeli’ Bouvier is a Prana Vinyasa™ Yoga Teacher Trainer, Certified Yoga Therapist, Hoopdance pioneer, AcroYoga Teacher, Thai Massage Practitioner and dancer devoted to the art and science of embodiment (definitely a body nerd!). Teaching everywhere since 2000, Michelle has accumulated nearly 4000 hours of training, specializing in sustainability and resilience of the body, mind, and heart. Grateful for her many teachers, Michelle has been most influenced by her depth of training with Shiva Rea, Tias Little, John Friend, and Tim Miller (yoga), Christopher Wallis and Christopher Tompkins (Tantrik philosophy and practice), Frey Faust, Gil Hedley, and Tom Meyers (anatomy and movement). Michelle continues to study Ayurveda and The Axis Syllabus (a lexicon of principles derived from anatomy, physics, and biomechanics, which teach safety, efficiency, and sustainability- applicable to all human movement). Michelle has always been on the inquiring edge. She’s helped create Hoop Vinyasa℠ (online on Yoga Alchemy) and Mandala Vinyasa: Circular Yoga, and is a revolutionary voice bringing Tantrik roots of embodied yoga together with modern movement science. Michelle’s mission is to inspire living in rhythm with Nature, and to liberate us from linear ideas of yoga asana and movement training ~ because our bodies are made of curves, not straight lines! In love at first spin in 2006 (Anah was her very first teacher!), Nayeli remains in awe of the hoop’s capacity to transform emotions, empower our authentic selves, and open up new pathways of movement expression and awareness.

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.
