About The Teacher

Bhagavan Das (Shug) Shyam has been practicing and studying Yoga continuously since 1997 as an initiated disciple of the Gurus of Sat Manav Yoga Ashram. Spending years living in retreat and by his Gurus’ side kindled his passion and innate wisdom on the practical nature of classical Yoga. As a founding ashram member, builder, visionary artist, musician and father, Shug understands how to bring spiritual practice into everyday activities. He practices and teaches from this deep foundation--sharing the sincerity and authentic knowledge that can only be offered from a lifetime of devotion, focused intention and intense Sadhana (practice)for the benefit of all beings. In addition to teaching Yoga and meditation, Shug performs with the kirtan group Shiva Lila and has recently launched Sat Manav Tattoos and Talismans. By manifesting his own human potential, he has helped many others connect with theirs. This is someone you definitely want to meet.

Why Retreat?

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

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

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.
