About The Teacher

The yoga classes will be led by Oliva Brown. Olivia’s experience in movement and knowledge of the body started from a young age through the medium of dance. It wasn’t until she started her professional training at London Contemporary Dance School that she began to practice yoga despite having a family full of yoga teachers! It seemed a natural progression to become a teacher and completed her 200hr Teacher training with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Academy.
Her classes are the middle ground between a traditional Hatha class and the creative elements of dance/yoga flow. Focus is found on breath and correct alignment in order to heal and strengthen the body. Each class includes elements of pranayama, sun salutation variations, asanas and either meditation or yoga nidra. Aspects of martial arts, shadow yoga, kundalini yoga and massage are also incorporated.
Olivia loves working closely with clients and catering to their specific needs in a fun and imaginative way.

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.
