About us

I have been interested in health, wellness, and fitness as long as I can remember. It all started with my Mom, Bianca Brown. An organic gardner, she always tried to serve healthy, natural foods. Bianca also read Prevention Magazine, and often quoted their advice on vitamins, health, and fitness. Physical fitness was also important to my Mom. Bianca made sure I was enrolled in swimming lessons at the Y, dance classes, horse back riding, camp, etc., an activity for every season. Bianca encouraged outside activities with one simple rule: "No TV till night fall...Go outside and play!"  

So thank you Mom for all your guidance and encouragement. My life is so wonderful and I am so grateful. I have so many advantages and I believe this came from the things I have learned and the lifestyle I live. I want to share this wisdom and its benefits with others.

I have a BA in Psychology & Sociology from Edinboro University of PA. A Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Instructor, I am certified in Vinyasa & Integral Yoga, and a W.I.T.S. certified Personal Fitness Trainer. I am also certified by the American Red Cross in CPR, AED, and First Aid. I believe education and training are vital, not just for personal growth, but because it also prepares you to help, guide, teach, and serve others.

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

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.
