About The Teacher

Rene has been practicing yoga for over 20 years. Drawn to the devotional aspect and what she saw as a moving prayer, her practice began with Hatha yoga at that Sivananda Vedanta Center in N.Y.C. After a severe spinal injury that medical treatment could not heal, she was led to the therapeutic approach of Iyengar Yoga which nourished and restored the misalignments in her body, allowing her to live a normal life again.

You are a divine being. You matter, you count. You come from realms of unimaginable power and light, and you will return to those realms. Terence McKenna

Why Retreat?

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

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

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.
