About The Teacher

SHADOW fka Alvin Gaines-Molina, is elated to be part of formulating Lunar Release and to be one of its

workshop facilitators. He is excited to bring and shareall his skills, knowledge, and passion to Lunar Retreat's week long programme.

Shadow developed his love for bodily movement through his rigorous dance training, and the interactions between body and mind through his Butoh

performances and yoga practice. His fascination with the body and the mind continued to grow, and in 2013, in an attempt to deepen his practice of yoga, he

completed a 200-hour Teacher Training Certification with Awakened Warrior Yoga. He believes that with a dedicated, constant, and "inner"-personal practice,

yoga can help practitioners to live less accelerated lives and be in the moment, thus healing physical and emotional wounds.

Shadow is also a classically trained chef. He brings forth his culinary expertise to Lunar Release as its in-house chef and will lead the culinary workshops.

As he complete his Master Herbalist Certification, he hopes to add sessions on Holistic botanical tonics and elixirs to the programme

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.
