Allen Jacinto

About The Teacher


Trained in Ashtanga Yoga in the Pattabhi Jois Tradition in 2002 at its Yoga Studio in San Francisco, Allan has also been trained to teach Yin Yoga in the Paul Grilley tradition and Restorative Yoga in the Judith Hanson Lasater tradition. In the California Berkeley area, his Gentle Yoga classes are immensely appreciated by many dedicated students as Allan provides a gentler approach to the practice of Yoga.  His laughter is contagious. His eyes are attentive to your moves. His awesome generosity is heart-warming. His tranquil, clear-sounding voice guides you thru the moves intermingled, just at the right moment, with a crescendo to inspire one to ‘raise the bar’ as he blends Nature vignettes into his yoga narrative. 

In the spirit of well-being, Allan Jacinto’s style supports one to do no harm, to move with one’s breath and to honor the Divine in each of us!

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with basic goodness in an environment of people who share a vision for a better society. Wimberly

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.
