Derek & Nadia

About us

Derek and Nadia are adventure enthusiasts committed to growth, change and transformation. For the past decade, they have been sharing the joys and excitement of personal evolution with everyone bold enough to look inward. The primary vehicles they use are retreats, yoga, workshops, life coaching and training. Their dedication to partnering with individuals and groups has grown from the thrill of their own evolution and desire to empower the same self-actualization experience in others. They believe that it is only by testing our limits that we learn what we are truly made of.

Derek and Nadia have been practicing yoga for eight years and have completed a Teacher Certification Program at Dhyana Yoga, where they currently teach. Derek has been instructing since 2010 in the Philadelphia area and hosting seminars on benefits of yoga and meditation. His teaching is significantly influenced by Tim Miller, David Swenson and Richard Freeman. Derek specializes in working with individuals dealing with a wide array of physical limitations and injuries to help them return to their optimum health.

Nadia has practiced with and learned from many spiritual gurus, including Kim Mazzella, Maleah Jacobs, Ainslie MacLeod, Lawrie Hart and Patricia Pearce, among others. This has included intuitive development, energy and chakra therapy, past life regression and reading, diverse combinations of affirmation and manifesting practices, Native American dreamwork and journeying, prayer, meditation and self discovery. She has also worked extensively with those recovering from trauma, emotional turmoil, conflict and addictions to help them return to balance.

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.
