About The Teacher

Hello! I recently relocated from Fremantle in Western Australia, to Sri Lanka. I am based at Lanka Wellness Retreat in Kahandamodara on the South Coast. I offer regular hatha and yin yoga classes, workshops, and guide nature-based retreats and eco-tours (Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Cambodia and Tonga).

A Hatha yoga teacher of 18 years, but currently specialising in Yin Yoga for the past 10, I aspire to guide my students towards creating positive transformations to their bodies, minds & lives.

I began my yoga journey many moons ago (1998) with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organisation in the Bahamas and Canada, completing my teacher training in 2001. My student and teacher path has been influenced by many other inspiring teachers, and life experiences, along the way. I am a student of Victor Chng (Yin Yoga in Asia, Singapore) since 2009. Up until Dec 2019, I was teaching regular Yin Yoga classes in Fremantle, plus regular workshops and mini-retreats in various locations around Perth & regional WA, as well as my wellness retreats and travel experiences that support grassroots conservation & social projects. This is my passion! Connecting people to nature, and connecting them back to self.

I hope you can join me some time winding back into the wilds through my transformative wellness & travel experiences.

Why Retreat?

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

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

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.
