About The Teacher

I’m Gerald, a 500hrs yoga alliance certified yoga teacher, who just recently moved from Berlin, Germany to Lima, Peru. I first discovered Yoga when I was still working as a project manager, and desperately needed something to balance the heavy workload. I soon realized the immense benefits of this practice, ranging from stress reduction and reduced bodily aches, to a calmer mind and an increased self-value.

I visited my Ashtanga Yoga teacher Vijay Kumar in Mysore in India four times so far, and have assisted him for two seasons. After those experiences I'm a strong believer in the Mysore style of teaching and teach exactly like he does.

In Lima, I'm teaching daily classes in La Comunidad, Barranco

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.
