About The Teacher

Since 2003, she has been exploring both her inner and outer world through extensive travel and deep immersion - studying movement, breathwork, meditation, and indigenous wisdom. A lifelong student of mindful movement and breath awareness, Marianne has taught classes and workshops in Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Peru. Her students have ranged in age from 2 to 62. While living in Cusco, Peru she opened her yoga studio MoveStillFree. Marianne’s global mindset and personal focus on conscientious living has attracted like-minded clients across the globe in the areas of hospitality, tourism, wellness, culture and the arts. With a background in marketing, public relations, and event planning in the retail, finance, and non-profit sectors, Marianne eventually made a life-changing shift toward a more intentional and integrative way of life, combining her skills and passions to establish the design and wellness team of Shine & Humm with her husband Shane. They have been living nomadically and working remotely together since 2008 and blog about their journey on their website shineandhumm dot com

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
