About us

Laurel, otherwise known as Alexandra Pearl, is a Lindy Hopper and wanna-be flapper who decided to explore feminine movement and found Qoya!

For me, it's meant rediscovering my feminine sensuality and revelling in that movement. Bringing the joy and beauty of hip circles to other women is marvellous! I love the mantra Wild, Wise and Free. It freed me from the structure of partnered dancing and perfect steps. It is so freeing to dance to "what feels good" and to let go of having to be perfect. Embrace it.

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

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.
