About The Teacher

Since 1998, Lauren Slater has been a joyful practitioner of yoga, earning her teaching certification with Yoga Tree in 2004, and continues her studies with Arkady Shirin in the Krishnamacharya lineage. With a great fascination for the mechanics and emotional response of movement, Lauren interweaves both anatomical and energetic cues into vigorous vinyasa (flowing sequences with integrated breath) practices and deep, restful restorative classes. In her teaching, she emphasizes mindfulness and presence, moving from and using core strength, abiding in the heart, and cultivating well-being for the benefit of all creatures.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
